• How Kybella Can Rid You of Your Pesky Double Chin

    on Jan 11th, 2019

You want to look your best, so you take care of yourself by eating right and exercising. But sometimes you struggle with trouble spots — those areas of fat that just don’t seem to slim down no matter what you do. When you have areas of fat that won’t disappear, it can affect your self-confidence and social life.

For many men and women, the area under their chin is their trouble spot. You might have a double chin even if you’re at your goal weight, because double chins can be caused by genetics, age, posture, as well as weight.

Double chins can be very frustrating, making you feel embarrassed or making you look heavier than you are. Luckily, you don’t have to settle for a chin that makes you unhappy. Kybella®, a nonsurgical procedure, can dramatically change your profile and help you finally get rid of that pesky double chin.

Imad El Asmar, MD, is highly trained in administering Kybella treatments. Together with his team at Vermont Med Spa in Los Angeles, Dr. El Asmar can customize a treatment plan to eliminate the extra fat under your chin and boost your self-confidence for years to come.

Contour your profile with Kybella

Kybella is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure, making it a perfect option for patients who don’t want to undergo surgery. Kybella uses synthetic deoxycholic acid, an active ingredient that works to break down and absorb fat in the body. It destroys unwanted fat cells under the chin, and your body eliminates those cells naturally, and they never return.

Kybella treatments involve injections to the area under your chin. Dr. El Asmar may recommend multiple sessions depending on your aesthetic goals. The procedure can be tailored to your particular fat distribution patterns and desired look.

What to expect during a Kybella treatment

Prior to recommending Kybella for you, Dr. El Asmar and his team will evaluate the target area and review your medical history. In general, you might be a good candidate for Kybella if:

Dr. El Asmar will assess the distribution of fat in and around your chin to develop a customized plan for you. Most patients have 1-6 sessions with at least one month between each session.

When you come in for your Kybella treatment, Dr. El Asmar will administer multiple small injections across the targeted area. Each session should take 15-20 minutes, and the number of injections you get will depend on your specific plan.

After treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness. These side effects should subside shortly after treatment.

It’s time to stop living with your frustrating double chin. There’s no need to settle for a profile that makes you feel unhappy and self-conscious. Consider Kybella for a nonsurgical option to contour your chin and boost your confidence.
