How to Get Rid of Your Double Chin

Do you follow a strict diet and exercise plan but still have a noticeable double chin?

Many people struggle with getting rid of excess fat underneath their chin no matter what they do. Unfortunately, this accumulation of excess fat underneath the chin is oftentimes an inevitable genetic issue. If you still have the appearance of a double chin even with regular exercise and a healthy diet, then your genetic makeup may be working against you.

Why Do You Have a Double Chin?

Double chin fat (submental fat) is typically a result of one of the following:

  • Genetics
  • Aging skin
  • Poor diet

The good news is there are still ways we can treat the double chin when genetics are an obstacle. In my experience, one of the best ways to address excess fat under the chin is with Kybella.

How Long Does it Take to Get Rid of a Double Chin with Kybella?

For most patients, visible double chin reduction is noticed after 2 to 4 treatment sessions. We recommend spacing each session out no less than one month apart for best results.

Kybella is a unique injectable drug that has been specifically crafted to target and eliminate excess fat underneath the chin. Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, an enzyme produced naturally by the body that is used to break down fat. The destroyed fat cells are then absorbed and disposed of by the body.

Patients can expect significant double chin reduction with little to no downtime and long lasting results.

What You Can Do to Prevent Double Chin Fat

The tips below will help you prevent excess double chin fat as you age, delaying the need for immediate treatment:

  • Strengthen neck muscles with good posture
  • Actively practice healthy eating habits
  • Maintain regular exercise routine
  • Monitor weight fluctuations
