For many guys, one of the biggest things they want to get rid of is their double chin. It’s often believed that a double chin is solely a result of being overweight but this is far from true. For some guys it doesn’t matter how much they diet or exercise, they cannot shift their chin fat.
Luckily there is now an effective way to get rid of chin fat even for men who are prone to storing fat under their chin.
What causes a double chin?
- Genetics – For many guys, the cause of their double chin is simply down to genetics. We all have a different physiological make up that causes us to store fat in different areas. For some, that fat is unfortunately stored under the chin.
- Weight fluctuations – Extreme weight gain and weight loss can also cause a double chin. Often the double chin will vanish when the weight is lost but this isn’t always the case.
- Age – Age is another very common cause of a double chin. As we age, our skin loses a lot of its natural elasticity and starts to sag. This is most noticeable in areas such as the cheeks, around the eyes and underneath the chin.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment that is used specifically to treat the area underneath the chin. It is FDA-approved and has been shown to be very effective at getting rid of submental fat. Kybella is typically administered over the course of a number of treatment sessions until the desired result is achieved.
Is Kybella right for me?
Good candidates for Kybella are guys who have a moderate amount of fullness around the face that isn’t a result of excessive weight gain. You should also be free of any serious medical conditions and inform your surgeon if you’ve had (or plan to have) any surgery performed on your face and/or neck.
What are the risks?
Kybella is generally a safe treatment. There are some side effects such as swelling
, soreness, redness and bruising but they generally only last for a few days immediately after treatment. Treatment sessions are spaced apart so the patient has time to recover and for the results to be assessed.
