Comparing Kybella, Liposuction, and Neck Lifts in Denver
A double chin, as well known as submental fullness, affects nearly 70% of all Americans. A double chin is formed by a thick layer of fat that rests behind the chin and loose skin.
Together, they form a fold that gives the appearance of someone having a second chin.
These double chins are usually caused by weight gain, but even people at their healthy weight can have one. Submental fat is resistant to weight loss, so exercise and diet may not always be solutions that work. Nevertheless, three procedures are designed to address excess fat in the neck and chin area. Let's detail them one by one.
Traditional Neck Liposuction
Neck liposuction is an ideal option to remove double chins caused by excess fat and skin excess. The procedure consists of removing fat with a small tube inserted through incisions.
The procedure length is nearly an hour, and most patients can return to their daily routine after a couple of days.
Kybella is a less invasive approach to address double chins. It's a nonsurgical treatment of deoxycholic acid injections to dissolve excess fat under the chin.
The body and the cleared absorb the fat cells through the body's natural metabolic process. Kybella injections are designed only to target fat cells to leave the surrounding tissues unaffected.
These injections require multiple treatments, spaced a month apart for optimal results. Most Kybella providers recommend six different sessions.
A double chin's appearance can be associated with loose skin other than excess fat in some cases.
For these reasons, a neck lift can be an optimal approach. It consists of placing incisions behind the ears or chin. The neck muscles are then separated from the skin and then tightening with sutures.
Excess skin is trimmed away and then draped over the neck to give a smooth, flattened contour. Typical recovery requires of two weeks and avoiding any strenuous activity for two months after the procedure.
