Many of us struggle with submental fat, also known as a double chin, that won’t go away no matter how much we work to maintain a healthy weight. Luckily, an injectable product called Kybella can address unwanted fullness under the chin and neck area by specifically targeting fat cells.
Kybella is made with a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid that helps your body break down dietary fat. When injected into the area beneath your chin, Kybella kills the fat cells so they become unable to store or accumulate fat in the future.
You can book a consultation to discuss Kybella injections with Dr. Constantine by calling (214) 739-5760.
Dr. Constantine’s Philosophy on Kybella
Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which your body’s digestive tract produces naturally to help break down the dietary fat you consume. When we introduce Kybella through the muscle into the submental fat layer beneath your chin, the acid goes to work killing fat cells through a process called lysis. In the weeks that follow, your lymphatic, immune and circulatory systems will naturally and permanently break down and dispose of the cellular waste – all with no need for incisions, stitches or recovery downtime.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your submental fat is genetic and not related to weight gain, you will see the best results from Kybella injections. Kybella can also help improve the definition between your chin and neck.
