Does your double chin bother you? Many people have become self-conscious about the under chin area, especially with the frequent use of cell phones and Facetime. Factors that can contribute to fat under the chin are being overweight, genetics, and aging. Both men and women suffer from under chin fat, and this can often make individuals appear heavier than they are.
Say Goodbye to fat under the chin and Hello to a new jawline. Don’t be afraid of taking selfies anymore or using Facetime. CoolSculpting is now performed with a new applicator, the Cool Mini, for permanent reduction of fat under the chin. This new treatment uses the specially designed FDA-approved applicator to permanently freeze away a double chin.
At our Connecticut plastic surgery office, we offer CoolSculpting of fat underneath the skin. The treatment itself takes one hour to perform. There are no needles, anesthesia, liposuction, surgery, or scars. There is minimal downtime with slight swelling. Patients can return to work or the gym right after their treatment. Each treatment permanently reduces the fat under the chin by about 20-25%. Two treatments, one month apart from each other, are recommended for optimum results.
Kybella is an FDA-approved injection for treatment of the fat underneath the chin. The injection destroys some of the fat cells and your body naturally breaks them down. It requires about 10-20 needle injections under the chin at each session, and usually needs about 2-5 sessions to obtain the desired improvement. The benefits of CoolSculpting to Kybella are that there are no needles, not as many treatments, and the entire treatment to obtain the final result is less costly.
Men are increasingly looking to non-surgical and non-invasive treatments to obtain a healthier, younger, and more vibrant appearance. Men wearing dress shirts and suits often have problems with fat underneath the chin. They want to feel more comfortable in their clothes without having to wear a larger shirt or looser collar, which can look sloppy. CoolSculpting of under chin fat and neck fat is perfect for men because there is no downtime, recovery, or scars.
