Nothing makes a patient more embarrassed in photographs of themselves than the undesirable double chin. The double chin is a common complaint in both men and women. They may find that the fat that develops in these areas is impossible to ignore—and treat! Even with weight changes, patients may find the double chin remains. While liposuction is an appropriate treatment for the fat underneath the chin, it is not always appropriate for the patient. Instead, patients of the Maple Valley, WA area who are unhappy with their noticeable double chin will want to book a consultation visit with the team at MD Cote to find out if they are a viable candidate for a treatment that eliminates the double chin without surgery: Kybella.
How does Kybella work?
Many patients ask about Kybella as it almost sounds too good to be true! Kybella is the first and only injectable that has been approved by the FDA for treatment of submental fullness—the medical term for a double chin. This injectable uses deoxycholic acid that destroys the fat cells in the chin that can develop and be difficult to reduce. This occurs over time and allows for gradual reduction of submental fullness over the course of several weeks. Each appointment is quick and easy, performed right in the office with Dr. Cynthia Cote.
What are the benefits of Kybella injections?
Many patients desire Kybella injections because they can effectively reduce fat underneath the chin without the need for plastic surgery. Injections are fast, simple, and affordable, and provide gradual improvement for a more natural transformation. Patients can have injections done over time to continue to enhance the contours of their chin and neck.
