It’s an exciting time for men and women who want to look younger longer. Submental fullness, more commonly known as double chin, is a telltale sign of aging. Review the family album. Many of us are genetically predisposed to double chins. Weight fluctuations can also contribute to the acquisition of this extra layer of fat.

Dr. Capizzi has a new double-chin solution now available to patients. It’s the recently FDA-approved Kybella, a non-surgical injectable that reduces moderate to severe fat on the upper neck.

Kybella’s active ingredient is a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid, which helps metabolize dietary fat. Kybella “melts” away chin fat during a series of injections over a 3-6 month period. Dr. Capizzi’s nurse injectors are highly trained and experienced. When injected properly by a Stillwater R.N., Kybella targets fat in the neck, disrupting the fat cell membrane. As a result, the cell releases fatty content over time. Next, your body steps in and naturally eliminates the fat over time.

As always, Dr. Capizzi recommends a personal consultation to develop the Kybella treatment program that’s right for you. Generally, a series of treatments is needed over the period of a few months.

Kybella is a breakthrough. Many patients beginning treatment now can expect to be rid of turkey neck well before Thanksgiving. For some, Kybella may not be a complete solution. For example, if the fat loss is extreme and skin has lost some elasticity, a neck lift may also be in the consideration set.

All will be revealed in your personal consultation. Call Dr. Capizzi and team to learn more about Kybella. Now is a great time to take one on the chin!
