Chin Up

Oct 9th, 2015 In: Anti-Aging, Fat Removal

As seen in Winston-Salem Monthly, October 2015

Dear Dr. Anne,

Some inherit their mother's baby blue eyes, others inherit the height gene, I inherited the double chin. Growing up, I was made fun of for having no neck or chin. I am 33 years old. I eat right and work out everyday yet I can't get rid of it. As a man, I think this condition is harder on men than it is for women. Is there anything I can do that will not require surgery or have a long  downtime?

Dear Ryan,

Not all of us are blessed to inherit the baby blues and being tall but you are not alone in this. We have found that 40% of our patients that come in for this issue are men. It sounds like, based on your age and lifestyle, you would be a good candidate for Kybella™, a non-surgical procedure approved by the FDA earlier this year. Kybella™ is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition commonly referred to as the double chin.

Kybella™ uses a naturally-occuring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected, Kybella™ destroys fats cells and once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.

The injections are administered in a grid-like pattern (usually two vials per session) and the process requires at least two sessions spaced six weeks apart. Because it is an injectable, you can go about your day afler your in-office treatment. No surgery. No downtime.
