Fat can accumulate in several different areas of the body, and these areas are different for everyone. Some people tend to store most of their fat within their hips, and others store it under their chin. The problem with stubborn fat pockets is that they’re almost impossible to remove with dieting and exercise.
The area under the chin is a common place for fat to accumulate, and even if you’re at a healthy weight, you might have more fat in this area than you’d like. If this describes your situation, then you might want to consider Kybella®.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Kybella® can be a very effective treatment option, but it’s not the right choice for everyone. Before you consider undergoing the procedure, you need to know if you’re a good candidate. To determine if you qualify for treatment, you need to find out if you have the right type of fat.
This fat is called submental fat. In other words, the fat is full and not smooth. Kybella® tends to work best for people who have moderate fat in their upper neck. Since the procedure is used to destroy fat cells, it doesn’t work for people who have excess skin or loose folds of skin on the neck.
Ideal candidates for this treatment should’ve already explored conventional options for weight loss. Before trying any type of medical procedure, you should always try to correct the problem with dieting and exercise.
Submental fat can be very difficult to eliminate, and conventional tools can’t always get rid of it. If you haven’t had any luck with dieting and exercise, then it might be time to consider Kybella®.
The Cause of a Double Chin
A lot of people eat healthy and exercise regularly, but they can’t seem to shake the double chin. Your overall weight is one of many factors that can contribute to a double chin. Medications and genetics can also play major roles in the formation of a double chin. Unfortunately, there are no OTC medications that will eliminate a double chin. Once it has formed, you’ll need to consider professional treatment.
How Treatment Works
During the procedure, Kybella® is skillfully injected directly into your chin, and it will safely destroy the fat cells in the area. After the solution kills off the fat cells, your body will automatically metabolize the cells and remove them.
Before Kybella®, the only option to eliminate a double chin was liposuction, which is an invasive surgical procedure. One of the major problems with liposuction is the required recovery time. Also called deoxycholic acid, Kybella® is a natural molecule, and it aids in the process of metabolizing dietary fat. By disrupting the membranes of fat cells within your chin area, this treatment destroys the membranes.
