It’s that time of year when it seems like everyone we know is starting to chisel away at that winter weight on their way to their summer bodies. You could hardly open Instagram, Facebook or Twitter without seeing an article about getting fit or a post from one of your friends who is “back in the gym” or hashtagging #cardio or #fitlife. However, one of the biggest and most common problems with stubborn fat often does not go away so easily and rarely in time for summer—yes, we’re talking about the dreaded double chin!
Double Chin, Be Gone!
Whether we want to admit it or not, many of us struggle with a double chin. We’ve all taken a funny low-angle Snapchat selfie with the intentional double chin, but when it sneaks up on us when we least expect it, we just wish it would just disappear. That extra pad of fat beneath the jawline does not discriminate against any age or gender—it can affect anyone and everyone and is often one of the most difficult problem areas to slim down.
Why? Well, there are many reasons why a person might struggle to lose their double chin even with diet or exercise. Some people are simply genetically predisposed to having a bit of extra submental fat, others might find it harder to get rid of as they get older. At Katy’s Texas Surgical Arts, Dr. Bonnor often sees men and women who have been able to lose weight and achieve their goal bodies, but still struggle with fullness beneath their chins.
So what do you do when you’ve worked out, ate healthy, lost weight, and still see a double chin pop up in the mirror or in photos?
Now the Good News: Enter Kybella
In the past, the answer would have been something along the lines of facial liposuction—effective, yes, but in today’s world not a lot of people have the free time to commit to surgery. Now, there is Kybella for FDA approved chin fat reduction.
Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that a board certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Bonnor will inject into the layer of submental fat beneath the skin. Then, the magic happens. Kybella is formulated using a chemical known as deoxychollic acid, which kills the underlying problem fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. Over the next few weeks, the dead fat cells will be naturally eliminated from your body, leaving you with a slimmer chin and jawline. The best part is you can have your treatment at our Katy cosmetic surgery practice and then get right back to your normal routine with little to no downtime and minor discomfort. For optimal results, Dr. Bonnor may recommend a series of 2-3 sessions.
