Double Chin Treatment
Double Chin Fat Removal in Augusta, GA
The so-called “double chin” can be a troublesome feature. Excess fat beneath the chin creates the appearance of a “second chin” beneath the first, and many people feel self-conscious that their double chin makes them look older or heavier than they are. Fortunately, there are treatments that can target this stubborn area and give you a more slender neckline. With either KYBELLA® injections or SculpSure® laser treatments, you can eliminate your double chin for good.

- Over time, the deoxycholic acid breaks apart the fat cells and the body flushes them out

- There is no recovery time; patients can immediately resume normal activities
- Patients may need between 2 and 6 treatment sessions spaced approximately 4 weeks apart for optimal results
Frequently Asked Questions about Double Chin Treatment
Men or women who are unhappy with the excess fat under their chin may be ideal candidates for double chin treatment. Candidates should be in overall good health and at a stable body weight before pursuing treatment.
Submental fullness, or excess fat under the chin, may be caused by weight gain, aging, or genetics. Many people have a double chin despite having a healthy lifestyle or even an otherwise slender figure.
Your treatment plan will be customized based on your goals and the extent of your submental fullness. Dr. Sherman will create a treatment plan with you before your first session. With KYBELLA®, patients typically need between 2 and 6 treatment sessions spaced a month or more apart. With SculpSure®, patients typically need 2 treatment sessions spaced 6 weeks apart.
Both KYBELLA® and SculpSure® yield results over time. Both treatments may begin to show results approximately six weeks after the initial treatment session. The fat reduction in these double chin treatments is permanent, which means the results are typically long lasting.
Generally speaking, KYBELLA® may be recommended for patients with good skin quality who are only concerned about excess fat beneath the chin. For patients who may also need skin tightening in the neck area, SculpSure® may be the recommended treatment. Individual circumstances will ultimately determine which procedure is best for you, and Dr. Sherman will help you choose the best treatment to meet your needs.
Side effects with these treatments are uncommon, and the risks are significantly lower than the risks associated with surgical fat removal. It is possible that some temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising may occur after double chin treatment. Both KYBELLA® and SculpSure® are approved by the FDA and do not typically cause any pain or lasting side effects.
