Milford, PA – November 24, 2016
“Fat under the chin, known as a double chin, isn’t only an aging issue. Often, young people have unwanted fat under their chins, which takes away from their profiles. It’s something that is cosmetically troublesome to many adults, and may not go away with diet and exercise,” says cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richard Buckley, medical director of MilfordMD Cosmetic Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center, in Milford, Penn. “Kybella is a very different approach for treating that fat. It’s not liposuction, which involves suctioning the area. Nor is it a device that delivers laser, ultrasonic or radiofrequency energy to the area. Rather, Kybella is an injectable medicine, deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body. When injected into fat under the chin, during an in-office procedure, it begins the process of destroying localized fat cells for good.”
Kybella is well-studied, according to Dr. Buckley. Researchers around the world have done more than 20 studies on Kybella, treating more than 1,600 people, he says. “Kybella is one of the newest options for treating fat under the skin, which is called submental fat,” he says. “Another approach we offer involves freezing away the fat with the popular CoolSculpting device’s, CoolMini. CoolSculpting received FDA clearance for submental fat reduction in 2015 and introduced the CoolMini applicator for treating small fat bulges, such as those creating the double chin.
Kybella, according to Dr. Buckley, is an ideal option for people who feel unhappy, self-conscious or embarrassed by fullness under the chin and want a more chiseled, defined chin and neck area. “People who don’t want surgery are ideal candidates for Kybella,” Dr. Buckley says. “It’s a nonsurgical approach. And to get the desired result, patients might need up to six treatments, but many achieve optimal results with two to four Kybella treatments.”
There are also nonsurgical skin tightening options that address sagging skin around the neck, according to Dr. Buckley. These include ThermiTight a device that delivers radio frequency (RF) energy above and under the skin to tighten sagging skin on the face, neck and body. SmartLipo and PrecisionTx are great laser options for treating fat and tightening skin. The long-lasting results can be seen in the first month, with continuous improvements over time. Another option is Ultherapy , which uses ultrasonic energy to non-invasively tighten skin under the chin and on the neck.
Too much fat under the chin is a common issue, bugging many Americans. Sixty-seven percent of people surveyed for a 2015 report by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery reported being bothered by the fat beneath their chins. “The great news is that whether people are bothered by a double chin or turkey gobbler neck or both, we can address it without surgery,” Dr. Buckley says.
