I Don't Like My Double Chin: Can You Help?

Extra fat beneath the chin, known as a “double chin,” is very common, but that doesn’t make it any less distressing. Genetics, age, and overall weight can contribute to fat accumulation behind the jawline.

At Cornforth Gynecology and MedSpa, Dr. Katherine Cornforth and our skilled clinical team provide a non-surgical option for removing excess fat beneath the chin. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable therapy that targets unwanted fat beneath the chin. Kybella is a safe and effective approach to achieve a more defined jawline with no downtime.

Kybella dissolves fat beneath the chin

Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable treatment specifically designed to target and dissolve fat cells under the chin. Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a substance your body naturally makes that plays a key role in breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. 

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body removes them in a natural detoxification process, providing long-lasting results.

Benefits of Kybella for double chin treatment

Kybella offers numerous advantages. Here are some of the highlights our patients appreciate:

Nonsurgical and minimally invasive

One of the most significant advantages of Kybella is that it offers a nonsurgical solution to reducing double chin, known as submental fullness. Unlike liposuction or other surgical procedures, Kybella involves no incisions, which means no scars and a lower risk of complications.

Minimal downtime

Kybella treatments are quick, usually lasting around 15 to 20 minutes, and require no extended downtime. This makes it an ideal option for busy individuals with full schedules.

Customized treatment

Kybella allows for a high degree of customization based on your unique aesthetic goals and the amount of fat under the chin. Our team will tailor the treatment to suit your specific needs, ensuring a natural outcome that you’ll be thrilled with.

Visible and lasting results

Patients often see visible improvements within two to four treatments. And because Kybella destroys fat cells permanently, the results are long-lasting, provided you maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle.

Boosts confidence and self-esteem

Reducing the appearance of a double chin can dramatically enhance your facial profile, offering a more youthful and contoured look. This can significantly boost your self-esteem and confidence, making you feel more comfortable in your skin.

Is Kybella right for me?

While Kybella is an effective treatment for many, it isn’t suitable for everyone. Ideal candidates for Kybella are adults with moderate to severe submental fat who prefer a nonsurgical treatment option. 

It’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider, such as Dr. Cornforth, who can assess your suitability for the treatment and ensure that it’s an appropriate treatment to address your double chin. To get started, give us a call to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Cornforth.
