Eliminate a “Double Chin” with Non-Surgical KYBELLA™ Treatment
The accumulation of fat under the chin can happen to almost anyone, regardless of weight, age, gender, and activity level. If you experience this condition, you’re not alone. In an effort to reduce the appearance of a double chin—medically referred to as submental fullness—you may have tried to change your diet, exercise regimen, or clothing style. However, this type of fatty tissue is often persistent. In fact, liposuction surgery has been the only truly effective cosmetic treatment option for this concern. Dr. Richard Zeff, our board certified plastic surgeon, is proud to introduce an innovative, non-surgical technique called KYBELLA™. This treatment can significantly reduce the appearance of a double chin for a renewed facial contour.
KYBELLA™ is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that is present naturally in the body. This molecule is designed to help break down dietary fat, and now it can be used to eliminate excess fat cells located under your chin. KYBELLA™ is administered through a series of targeted injections into the areas of concern. The formula then begins to dissolve excess fatty tissue, which your body can then remove through its normal metabolic processes. The treatment can take as little as 20 minutes and will be performed in the comfort of Dr. Zeff’s practice. Two or more treatments may be necessary to obtain your desired result, after which the effects should be very long lasting.
In addition to a brief treatment time, KYBELLA™ requires little to no recovery time. Most patients return to their normal activities the same day or within one to two days. While some mild bruising, numbness, and swelling are normal side effects, they should subside relatively quickly after the procedure. KYBELLA™ is currently the only non-surgical procedure FDA-approved to address excess fat under the chin and the upper part of the neck. If you have significant skin laxity in addition to fatty tissue under your chin, an alternative technique may be recommended. This is due to the fact that KYBELLA™ is not designed to tighten the skin.
This technique is a revolutionary new way to improve your profile and enhance your confidence. Dr. Zeff is one of only two doctors in New Hampshire that is able to treat patients with Kybella at this time.
