Q: What do you enjoy about treating submental fullness/double chin with Kybella?
What our experts say:
Dr. Smith: Non-surgical treatments for the neck and jawline are making great strides. This zone often has a significant genetic component and is a source of frustration for many patients who have tried diet/exercise and are not willing or able to undergo neck surgery. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is FDA-approved for fat reduction under the chin. A series of injections helps to permanently remove fat cells and to define the jawline. Ongoing studies are investigating the use of Kybella in other areas of the body with unwanted fat – stay tuned!
