Fat that gets stored at the top of the neck or under the chin is known as submental fat. When too much of it exists, it can start to hang in a low and visually unappealing pouch, lending to the illusion of a double chin. Sadly, dieting and exercise are rarely enough to give the under-chin area the taut, toned, and undeniably youthful look it once had. More importantly, this all-too-visible collection of fat can greatly detract from a person’s overall appearance. A double chin can make you look both older and heavier than you truly are. Luckily, Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that can eliminate these unwanted fat stores.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is currently the only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of excess submental fat. The primary ingredient in this product is a synthetic form of a naturally-occurring bile known as deoxycholic acid. This solution gradually breaks down targeted fat stores by destroying fat cells on contact. Once the targeted fat is destroyed, it is quickly broken down and removed from the body. This produces a gradual slimming effect that streamlines the profile, eliminates the appearance of a double chin, and creates a more refined and youthful-looking visage all-around. In the past, the only way to eliminate unwanted submental fat was by undergoing invasive surgery. Now, however, Kybella makes it possible to achieve the same results in a safe and minimally-invasive way.
Why Uniform Fat Loss Makes Getting Rid of a Double Chin So Difficult
Having a double chin doesn’t necessarily mean that you are unhealthy or overweight. Some people are simply more predisposed to storing extra fat in this area. Moreover, as people grow older, they naturally develop a higher likelihood of storing excess fat at the top of the neck and under the chin. Developing a double chin could simply be a part of your body’s normal aging process. In this case, dieting to drop pounds will not balance out your facial proportions or have any noticeable sculpting effects on this particular trouble zone.
The most important thing to know about weight loss is that it is always uniform. Dropping pounds will not dramatically alter your physical proportions given that weight loss in one area will always be relative to weight loss in all others. If you try losing weight to eliminate a double chin, your submental fat stores will grow smaller, but every other part of your body will grow smaller as well. Conversely, Kybella injections can achieve very targeted results given that these treatments only address the specific fat that you want to eliminate.
