Are you fighting submental fullness in your chin area? This common condition, also known as a double chin, has a tendency to make you look older and heavier than you really are. Unfortunately, it affects men and women alike but is very difficult to treat with exercise and a healthy diet. This is why The Julian Institute of Plastic Surgery is so excited to now offer Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness. Kybella is an injectable that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe fat on the neck and chin in order to contour the area and create a smoother, younger appearance.

Why Do You Have a Double Chin?

Your chin actually contains a natural and healthy layer of fat that enhances the appearance of your face by providing protection and contour. However, that fat is at risk of slipping down and becoming saggy and wrinkled over time. This creates the double chin effect. It’s also possible that you might be genetically predisposed to water retention in the chin area, which also causes a double chin to form.

A Quick and Simple Treatment with Kybella

Kybella is a clinically proven injection that dissolves extra fat in the chin and neck area while simultaneously tightening and smoothing the skin above the fat. Its main ingredient, deoxycholic acid, exists naturally in the body to break down and absorb fat. When Kybella’s deoxycholic acid is injected directly into the double chin, it works in two distinct ways to eliminate your double chin. First, it permanently destroys existing fat to reduce fullness under the chin. Second, it prevents cells in that area from storing and accumulating fat in the future.

Dr. Polecritti will work with you to determine how many Kybella treatments you will need to achieve the results you desire. Most patients receive between two to six injections over a six-month span. You can expect to enjoy visible results after the first few injections! Best of all, with a healthy lifestyle, your results will last permanently and help you enjoy a smooth, beautiful contour under your chin.

There’s no need to live with your double chin another minute. Call (352) 606-4754 to make your first appointment with Dr. Polecritti. He will strategically use Kybella to deliver the results you’ve always wanted.
