How can Double Chins be Treated?
There are basically 3 different methods of treating Double Chins(1) SURGERY: Surgery has been used for many years for Double Chins. The two main surgical procedures are Liposuction where the fat is sucked out through a small incision, and Direct Excision where the fat is cut out through a large incision called a Z-Plasty. These surgical procedures require anaesthetic and usually hospitalisation. Cost, downtime and surgical scars are the usual considerations.(2) MACHINES: Many devices have been tried over the years with varying success. Radiofrequency machines, which aim to heat up the fat cells to destroy them, produce unpredictable results and improvements are mild to moderate at best. Cryolipolysis, where the fat cells are frozen, achieves much better and more predictable results and in a treatment cycle, 20% reductions can typically be achieved.(3) INJECTIONS: Injections to remove fat have been around for many years, however, it is only recently that a special fat dissolving product has become available that has been specifically approved for the minimisation and removal of Double Chins. This product is based on the naturally occurring bile acid. A series of 2-4 sessions give progressive improvement with minimal downtime. Sessions are spaced about 6 weeks apart. Kybella for double chin is used for quite a long time. Kybella injections are injected in small amounts in the chin fat cells.
