Submental fat refers to the fat that sits under your chin. You may have been born with this extra pocket of fat or it may have developed as you got older or put on a few extra pounds.
No matter how you developed your extra chin, getting rid of it can be nearly impossible. Even if you’re at your goal weight, your face may still look full.
Kybella is an FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment specifically used for getting rid of submental fat. The prescription medication is recommended as a treatment for moderate to severe submental fat under the chin, or what you may refer to as your double chin.
Kybella burns the fat from your chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is called deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule naturally found in your body that helps break down fat. When injected into the fat in your chin, the deoxycholic acid destroys your fat cells. Then, over time, your body naturally processes these fat cells through your lymphatic system and gets rid of them forever, giving you a sleeker, more defined profile.
Your provider at Williamson County Integrative Medicine develops a customized treatment plan for you based on the amount of fat in your chin and your aesthetic goals. To get the best results, you may need up to six treatments set at four-week intervals.
During your session, your provider injects your chin multiple times with Kybella to get the desired results. If you’re sensitive to pain, be sure to let your provider know so modifications to your treatment can be made. The actual procedure shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
You should start to notice an improvement in your profile after the first 2-4 treatment sessions, with continued improvements over the next few months. Once the fat is gone, it won’t come back.
