I Don’t Like My Double Chin: Can You Help?

I Don’t Like My Double Chin: Can You Help?

Are you embarrassed by your double chin when you look in the mirror? Although it's not uncommon, a double chin significantly impacts how you feel about your looks.

Plastic surgery is one way to cure a double chin, but you don't have to go under the knife. Dr. Anthony N. Dardano offers an injection called Kybella® to get rid of your double chin.

Dr. Dardano and his team offer many types of aesthetic treatments to give you a more youthful appearance to restore your confidence.

Causes of a double chin

Fat that forms under your chin is also known as submental fat. When fat forms underneath your chin area, it causes a double chin.

A double chin is sometimes a sign of obesity, but that's not always the case. Other circumstances that lead to a double chin include:

Weight gain

You might notice extra fat under your chin if you've gained significant weight. Sometimes, losing weight and eating healthy helps you decrease that fat.

Age

As you get older, your skin becomes less elastic. When your skin loses elasticity, it begins to sag or become loose, affecting the skin underneath your chin.

Genetics

Unfortunately, genetics does play into your chances of having a double chin. Suppose your immediate family members have double chins or a history of decreased elasticity in their skin. In that case, you're more likely to have this condition.

Posture

Believe it or not, your posture may contribute to your double chin. Poor posture causes weakness in your neck muscles, which leads to sagging skin over time.

Kybella can help

If you're tired of looking at your double chin in the mirror, Dr. Dardano and his team can help. Dr. Dardano offers injectables and facial surgery when you have a double chin to deal with.

The less invasive option to manage the fat under your chin is an injectable known as Kybella. Kybella contains a manufactured form of deoxycholic acid.

Kybella is the only injectable drug on the market approved by the FDA to treat a double chin effectively. It's minimally invasive, and Dr. Dardano gives the injections right in his office for optimal convenience and comfort.

Dr. Dardano recommends Kybella because it targets the fat cells underneath your chin. It's a fast and efficient way to cure your double chin for good.

What to expect from Kybella

Kybella is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that Dr. Dardano gives you in the office. Because it's minimally invasive, you don't need to prepare for your appointment.

Before your procedure, you'll sit in a comfortable chair in our rooms. Dr. Dardano can provide you with an ice pack or numbing cream to help ease any discomfort from the injections. He then marks your skin where he's going to administer your injections.

When ready, Dr. Dardano injects the Kybella into the skin under your chin. One treatment may contain up to 50 single injections that are close together to target fat cells.

The entire process takes about 20 minutes to complete, and you should only feel minimal discomfort from the injections.

You might notice some swelling or bruising under your chin after your injections. These side effects are expected and should go away within a few days.

You may need follow-up injections to get optimal results. Dr. Dardano discusses this with you before your first injection.

If you're interested in getting rid of your double chin, don't hesitate to call the office in Boca Raton at 561-202-1248 to schedule a consultation or book an appointment online.
