Everyone knows the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise. These traditional weight-loss practices work wonders for your overall health and quality of life. And they help keep excess fat to a minimum.
But unfortunately, some areas attract stubborn fat pads that a healthy lifestyle seems to ignore. One place, in particular, is submental fat below the jawline, better known as a double chin. This thick layer of fat is unsightly and can be tricky to get rid of.
Thankfully, aesthetic medicine offers two options to eliminate this cosmetic concern. Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery that suctions the fat away, never to return. And Kybella is a fat reduction injectable explicitly designed to make your neckline lean and alluring.
Thousands of people seek this body-shaping procedure every year. By design, liposuction removes stubborn fat pads seemingly immune to traditional weight-loss methods. The operation can be effective in most places on the body, including the abdomen, thighs, and upper arms. And many patients enjoy the excellent benefits it brings to the neck area by resolving a double chin.
Board-certified and Mayo Clinic-trained Dr. Arthur Cambeiro also offers SmartLipo Triplex with laser technology. This advanced treatment removes fat faster, minimizes bruising and swelling, and produces firmer and tighter skin by increasing collagen production.
Liposuction will give your neck a sleeker contour by removing fat cells. You can maintain your results over time by continuing your healthy diet and exercise habits.
This injectable gradually reduces a double chin with a naturally occurring substance called deoxycholic acid that aids in processing dietary fat. When injected into the target area, Kybella breaks down the fat cells so your body can naturally metabolize them and flush them out.
The benefits typically require two to six treatments spaced about four weeks apart. As with liposuction, the submental fat treated with Kybella will not return. However, your results will be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet and a consistent workout regimen.
