Having a double chin can really make you feel self-conscious, especially in social settings.

Nowadays, cameras are everywhere and selfies are just as popular, creating situations where more people can notice the fullness under your chin. It can make you look and feel older and heavier.

Despite your best effort at a regular exercise routine and a healthy diet, it can be difficult to get rid of fullness below your chin. Also known as submental fat, a double chin occurs when a layer of fat forms below your chin due to the aging process or weight gain.

But now, there is a solution without the need for surgery: Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for the reduction of the dreaded double chin. It is directly injected into your neck area to get rid of excess fat for a more sculpted shape.

Kybella Vancouver

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a synthetic deoxycholic acid that is injected into the fat cells beneath your chin to aid in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Kybella is injected into the subcutaneous fat to destroy the fat cells and force your body to remove the fat through the lymphatic system.

This serves to change the contour of your jawline and, consequently, provide for a more youthful appearance. Kybella is a non-invasive procedure that will give you a more natural and sleek appearance. It can also be used in conjunction with a fat removal procedure like CoolSculpting to enhance the results. At the Workman Center for Plastic Surgery Vancouver Kybella treatments take about an hour.
