Excess fat under the chin is a common cosmetic problem, affecting people of all ages. Submental (under the chin) fat is commonly called a “double chin.” It can impact the lines of the neck and jawline, add years to your appearance, and make a person who is trim and fit look older and overweight. Our non-invasive Kybella in Seattle treatment can correct this issue.

Causes

Submental fat is not necessarily the result of being overweight. Even slender people can have a double chin. Possible causes of this cosmetic issue include:

  • Diet and weight gain: A high-calorie diet of processed foods may contribute to overall weight gain and a double chin.
  • Aging: The skin begins to lose elasticity with aging. This can result in lose skin under the chin that contributes to the double-chin.
  • Genetics: If you have a family history of skin laxity and submental fat, you may be predisposed to developing fat deposits under the chin.
  • Poor posture: The muscles of the neck and chin may be weakened with poor posture. As the skin surrounding the weak muscles begins to lose elasticity, it can contribute to developing submental fullness.

What is Kybella ® ?

Our Kybella® in Bellevue treatment is an injectable solution that contains a naturally occurring molecule in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the area, it initiates the breakdown of the fat cells in the area.

Benefits of Kybella ® Treatments

Kybella® is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that offers many benefits:

  • Non-surgical procedure: Dr. Egrari and his nurse providers perform this procedure by injecting Kybella® in the area under the chin in a process that takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes. No incisions, sutures, or post-surgical pain.
  • Performed with local anesthesia: Kybella® treatments are performed with lidocaine (local anesthetic) under the chin to numb the area. You may return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure with no anesthesia grogginess.
  • Enhances the profile: Our Kybella® in Seattle procedure reduces sagging chin fat and the “wedge” under the chin so you can take pictures from any angle and stop stressing about unflattering posts on social media.
  • Long-lasting results: Injected under the chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells in the area. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Once you have achieved your cosmetic goals with Kybella®, no further treatment should be required.
  • Minimal to no downtime: Kybella® is a quick procedure and you can return to work or normal activities immediately after treatment. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness after the procedure.
  • Takes years off your appearance: Submental fullness is a sign of aging, and it can make a person appear older. Kybella® treatments can improve facial and neck profiles and help you present a far more youthful appearance.
  • Look pounds lighter without losing weight: Kybella® treatments can decrease the appearance of a double chin and make the jawline appear slimmer and more defined. Losing the submental fat can help create the appearance of noticeable weight loss.
