Are There Other Options to Get Rid of Fat Under the Chin?
Yes, you do have alternatives. Liposuction has been used for many years, though the process is pretty “rough” – See the Kybella vs Liposuction article.
CoolSculpting is another option that is appealing to those with severe needle phobia, but results aren’t as precise.
Kybella for the Body
Residual fat in the abdomen, upper arms, and flanks can be further contoured with Kybella. Patients will still need a minimum of 3 treatments, and the amount of product needed will vary on the size of the area being treated. In relation to our other fat reduction treatments, it’s being utilized as a “fine-tuning” sort of procedure. If there is an area that perhaps does not have enough fat to fit into a CoolSculpting applicator, or is an area that has not responded completely to CoolSculpting, or the contour of the area of concern could not be treated with CoolSculpting, Kybella is a simple option and has high satisfaction rates. Kybella used for body fat destruction is “off-label”, but completely safe when provided by a skilled injector.
