In the days of Skyping and video chat, a double chin can feel more embarrassing than ever before. But a recent FDA-approved injectable treatment can effectively dissolve under-chin fat without surgery. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment to treat submental (under-chin) fat.
Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, which is identical to the deoxycholic acid that exists naturally in your body. Kybella injections work by destroying the membranes of fat cells. Your body then processes and disposes of the destroyed fat, leaving the area under your chin with a sculpted, elegant and defined contour.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Basner is proud to offer this advanced double chin treatment to his patients. The fat cells that are destroyed, are gone for good, so you won't have to keep coming back for further injections, although it will take up to 6 appointments initially to get the desired result.
If you live in or around Baltimore, Owings Mills, Towson or Columbia, and if you would like to find out if Kybella non-surgical injections are the right way to melt the fat under your chin, please call Adam L. Basner, M.D., at (410) 616-3000.
