Remove Double Chin Fat
Unwanted fat accumulation under the chin is a common cosmetic problem for both men and women. Although liposuction plastic surgery is a time-tested procedure to eliminate stubborn fat pockets, but many people want to avoid an elective surgery. For all such people, CoolSculpting and Kybella are two innovative non-surgical solutions to get rid of double chin.
Both treatments adopt a completely diverse approach, but with the same goal of creating a sculpted, slimmer chin appearance. Board certified plastic surgeons at MBody provides these procedures to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities and cities in this part of the state.
How do these procedures work?
CoolSculpting is based on a unique process called cryolipolysis, which involves freezing of the targeted fat cells using cold temperatures. CoolMini by CoolSculpting is an innovative fat freezing applicator that is specially designed to address hard to reach areas such as below the chin. The FDA has cleared CoolMini to be used for fat reduction in the submental region.
Fat cells in the chin will respond first to the cold exposure delivered through CoolMini device. As these cells get isolated and frozen, they will gradually disintegrate and get eliminated from the chin through the natural metabolic process. The patient can achieve a slimmer, more youthful chin appearance without involving plastic surgery.
Kybella is also an FDA approved treatment to eliminate excess fat tissue below the chin and help the patient get rid of the double chin effect. Kybella involves a series of injections that are used to deliver the medication directly into the affected area below the chin. Multiple injections may be provided over a span for a few days or weeks to achieve desirable and sustainable results with Kybella.
The deoxycholic acid in Kybella is designed to break down fat cells, and reveal an attractive chin contour. Experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for double chin treatment.
CoolMini by CoolSculpting is considered to be one of the safest fat reduction procedures, which does not involve any cuts or incisions. Mild redness or temporary numbness under the chin where the applicator was focused may occur in a few cases. But it will dissipate on its own.
Kybella involves multiple injections, and temporary redness and numbness may occur after the treatment. However, most patients report that these symptoms get resolved on their own in a few days to a few weeks.
Treatment of Choice
Both CoolSculpting and Kybella injections are non-surgical fat reduction procedures to mitigate double chin. Both treatments do not involve any significant downtime and are ideal for working people, busy moms and others who want to avoid surgery. Patients can choose a treatment which appeals to them, as long as their candidacy is approved, or follow the treatment provider’s recommendation. In exceptional cases, both treatments may be combined for more effective outcomes.
