Kybella®: Now You Can Banish That Double Chin Without Surgery

At Hamani Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, we’ve helped countless women and men ditch their dreaded double chins with Kybella®.

Everyone adores a baby with a double chin. However, the look on an adult is far less appreciated. In fact, it can make you look heavier and older than you really are.

Previously, if you were genetically cursed with a double chin, the only solutions were invasive surgery or turtlenecks. Fortunately, now there’s Kybella®. At Hamani Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas, we’ve helped countless women and men ditch their dreaded double chins with this breakthrough FDA-approved treatment that destroys fat under your chin. Read on to learn how surgery-free Kybella can make it disappear. 

What causes a double chin? 

A double chin, or submental fullness, as it’s called in the medical community, can be the result of weight gain, the natural aging process. 

As you age, your skin loses elasticity, which can lead to a saggy appearance under the chin. Combined this with a few extra pounds and genetics, and you’re fighting an uphill battle against the fat under your chin. Exercising is great for your overall health, but it’s often ineffective in eliminating fat below your jaw. 

Kybella to the rescue

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that targets and permanently destroys stubborn fat cells under your chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is a substance called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and digestion of dietary fat. 

When Kybella is injected into the fat beneath your chin, the deoxycholic acid gradually destroys unwanted fat cells. Based on your aesthetic goals, Hamani Medspa’s specialists customize a treatment plan just for you, which typically entails between 2-6 Kybella treatments.

Once the fat cells under your chin are destroyed, your body can no longer use them to store fat. As a result, the fat doesn’t regenerate and you get a slimmer profile that’s long-lasting, especially if you continue to maintain a healthy body weight.

What to expect

A Kybella appointment typically takes 15-20 minutes, making it easy to fit into your lunch break. Each Kybella treatment consists of multiple injections strategically placed under your chin. Appointments are scheduled about a month apart. 

Even if you require six treatments — the maximum number of Kybella sessions — start now and enjoy the aesthetic results you desire by the holidays. Results appear gradually, too, so you get a natural outcome and nobody will even notice you’ve had “work done” to improve your appearance. 

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

If you’re one of the 67% of surveyed Americans who are bothered by submental fullness, you may be an ideal candidate for Kybella cosmetic injectables. And if you’re concerned about downtime or the risk of side effects, both are minimal with Kybella. 

Immediately following your appointment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin where you received the injections. However, these symptoms typically subside without further problems. Also, Kybella injections don’t pose the medical risks that come with liposuction or invasive cosmetic surgery. 

If you dislike your double chin but aren’t interested in cosmetic surgery, Kybella could be the answer.
