Excess volume under the chin and neck is notoriously difficult to target and get rid of. Many people refer to this volume as the dreaded ‘double chin’. If this condition sounds familiar, then you are in luck! Panacea Plastic Surgery offers both surgical and non-surgical ways to remove fat and skin under the chin. Some patients are opting in for Non-surgical procedures to avoid pain and recovery time. Two of the most popular non-surgical options include Ultherapy and Kybella. Panacea Plastic Surgery offers both procedures, and when performed together you will be able to achieve optimal results.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens loose skin in the neck. It is a great non-surgical option for treating loose, sagging skin. The treatment utilizes Ultrasound technology and unlike laser treatments, the ultrasound waves pass through the skin, without disturbing the surface of the skin, targeting the deeper tissues to stimulate collagen and elastin production. In fact, Ultherapy reaches as far into the skin as a Facelift!
Kybella is the first and only FDA-cleared injectable for reducing fat deposits beneath the chin. Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that contributes to the breakdown and absorption of fat cells. When injected into the chin, Kybella works to permanently destroy fat cells, which are then eliminated over time through the body’s natural metabolic processes. This virtually painless procedure requires at least 2 treatments to see optimal results.
Ultherapy and Kybella can be performed at the same time – Kybella will remove excess fat while Ultherapy treats loose skin. This cuts down on recovery time for patients and addresses two main concerns for those with a double chin: fat and excess skin. Both procedures are non-surgical and require minimal downtime – most patients immediately return to normal activities.
