Chin Fat Reduction

A double chin can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. It is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. Unwanted fullness beneath the chin may not go away, and it can make a person appear older or heavier than they actually are.

Procedure

At The Kaga Institute, we use Kybella® for our chin fat reduction procedures. Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that physically and permanently destroys fat under the chin for an improved profile. Kybella® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and visibility of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” In some cases, truSculpt iD® may be used for chin fat reduction.

Benefits

Treatment with Kybella® is tailored to the individual patient’s submental fat distribution and aesthetics goals for an improved chin profile.
