A Sculpted Jaw in Just One Session with Houston AirSculpt®—Walk Right Out!
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and felt you had extra fat below your chin? Having a defined profile is something we all wish for when we look in the mirror, but sometimes there's a little too much fat around our neck and chin area that might cause us a little discomfort with our overall appearance.
But don't worry, you are not alone. According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68% of Americans suffer from submental fullness - the medical term for that annoying extra fat around the neck we call double chin.
Different situations can cause extra fat pockets, some of which you might not even know have something to do with your extra neck rolls, such as:
- Hereditary/genetic fullness
- Weight fluctuations (gaining or losing weight)
- Anatomy differences
- Being overweight
There are several procedures out there that can help you achieve your ultimate goal of a slimmer, more defined jaw. When it comes to that extra fat around the chin and neck, two options on the market have been keeping patients and doctors feeling happy and satisfied with results and other application possibilities.
Kybella is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses a liquid solution that gets injected directly into fat pockets underneath the chin, directly to the double chin. This liquid solution is an acid called deoxycholic, which breaks and dismembers the fat cells in the submental area, allowing the body to absorb them naturally.
A Kybella-trained healthcare specialist or practitioner can only provide this double chin removal treatment. In each session, the patient will receive multiple small injections under the chin, directly targeting the extra fat beneath it.
Each Kybella treatment or session lasts from 15 to 25 minutes. The exact number of injections will vary depending on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. On average, patients require 2 to 4 sessions to achieve expected results over the course of several months.
What is AirSculpt®?
This is not just as fat removal treatment. AirSculpt® was designed to consider your needs and expectations first; that's why our Elite process involves more than just a cosmetic procedure. Our fat transferring process uses a pen that releases a pressured puff of air to capture that unwanted fat rather than using a scalpel—which means we don't use stitches or leave you with significant, everlasting scars.
With our patented technology, the Elite Body Sculpture surgeon will then remove and collect your unwanted fat cell by cell from the submental area (your double chin) while simultaneously tightening your skin. AirSculpt® does not require general anesthesia, so you'll be awake throughout the entire procedure and see your fat plucked out through a freckle-sized hole.
You might be trying to compare Chin AirSculpt® to other modern cosmetic procedures, thinking about their differences and which one is your best bet. Here are some facts about other methods, such as Kybella that can help you decide.
Kybella and AirSculpt for Double Chin
Neck and chin liposuction has been available since the 1980s and is still growing in popularity thanks to the advancements in recent years.
Treatments like Kybella are known as non-surgical because they use injections rather than a small cannula. These injections need to be repeated over a month or two to get the expected results. Kybella can only be used on the double-chin area, not anything else.
With Chin AirSculpt®, a minimally invasive option, you can achieve your desired attractive face by giving the jawline a sharper look. AirSculpt® removes the fat below the jaw and tightens skin with a small amount of downtime. Thanks to the fact that the chin heals quicker than other areas, patients see results so much faster than other regions of the body, noticing the difference in the following two days.
Bottom Line - The Decision
We say our face is our presentation card, so you have to be careful with what you do with it. Even though Chin AirSculpt is a quick, 20-minute procedure, it should not be taken lightly. Make your decision with the proper research and preparation.
