Age, genetics, weight gain, and sagging skin can result in the deposit of excess skin and fat tissue beneath the chin, creating the “double chin” look. If you struggle with excess fat deposits beneath your chin, you are welcome to visit True Smile Orthodontics for our Kybella® treatment.
Kybella is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment that addresses moderate to severe fat deposits beneath the chin to enhance facial contours. It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule that assists in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. Kybella targets and destroys the fat beneath the chin, which is known as submental fullness. Once the fat cells in that area are destroyed, they cannot accumulate or store fat. Any fat cleared by the body is processed naturally through metabolism.
You may experience some initial swelling, but should be able to resume regular activities after treatment. Some patients require mild downtime after their first treatments. Please keep your social schedule in mind when arranging your treatment sessions with Drs. Christopher and Martin Trockel.
