Safely Reduce Your Unsightly Double Chin With Advanced Facial Contouring at MBody!
Submental fullness is the accumulation of excess subcutaneous fatty tissue around the chin, neck, and jowls. Otherwise known as a double chin, submental fullness can be the result of natural genetics, the normal aging process, or weight gain; yet whatever the cause, if you have a double chin, you understand just how frustrating excess fat underneath the chin, a poorly-defined jaw line, and a heavier, rounded look can be, and just how much it can detract from your otherwise balanced and harmonious facial contours. Especially when coupled with sagging skin and lax muscle tone in the chin and neck, common problems as we grow older, submental fullness leads to an older, heavier appearance that can undermine your look of natural youthfulness, as well as your self-confidence and emotional well-being. Luckily, modern facial contouring techniques can reduce excess fatty deposits at the root of your double chin, and offer you a shapely and chiseled chin and jawline that will improve your appearance and enhance your natural beauty.

Treatment Options for Submental Fullness
During your initial consultation at MBody, our highly-experienced practitioners will help you understand the variety of advanced, cutting-edge treatment options available to you, and will work with you to select the procedure most appropriate for your medical history and aesthetic goals. Treatment options best suited for the reduction of submental fullness include:
Kybella by Kythera:
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment designed specifically to reduce submental fullness. The only injectable treatment FDA-approved to reduce submental fullness, Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule that that enables the body to break down dietary fat. When injected into the chin and neck, it destroys the membranes of excess fat cells, causing them to burst and be comfortably and painlessly reabsorbed by the body. A Kybella treatment can be completed in the office in about 15-20 minutes, and does not require any significant downtime. Most patients will require a series of once-a-month treatments, usually between two to six in total, for maximum effect.
Advanced surgical techniques and the development of small and precise surgical implements make surgical liposuction a viable and safe method of removing submental fat. Liposuction involves removing localized fatty deposits through the skin with the use of a cannula. Because it is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure, it requires the use of local anesthesia and requires a somewhat longer recovery time—usually about a week or so—but remains one of the most effective, powerful facial contouring options available today.
Harnessing the power of ultrasound energy, Ultherapy® in a non-invasive facial contouring technique that targets excess fat in the chin, neck, and jaw, as well as simulates your body’s natural collagen production to firm and tighten loose, sagging skin. Because it is both powerful and gentle, it is perfect for individuals seeking a well-defined, youthfully-contoured face, neck, chin, and jawline.
Another powerful non-surgical option for the treatment of submental fullness is the high-intensity, focused radiofrequency energy (RF) delivered by the Infini system. Delivered through gold-coated, insulated microneedles at precise depths within the dermis, Infini is an optimal treatment to reduce excess fat at the root of submental fullness and to tighten sagging, dropping skin at the neck, chin, and jowls, resulting in a beautifully-contoured and youthful appearance.
