Submental fullness or excess fat beneath the chin can be caused by weight gain, aging, and just plain old genetics. Did you know there are several ways to diminish this excess fat? Traditionally there is the mini neck lift which is surgery of the neck through liposuction. This surgery is in office under local and oral sedation. Another option is a non-invasive technology called CoolSculpting. The CoolMini applicactor was specifically designed to treat submental fat. Through cooling technology the fat is permanently destroyed in the submental region in as little as one hour, with no downtime. The third option is Kybella, another non-invasive procedure. A deoxycholic acid injection is placed in the submental fat, permanently destroying the fat tissue. The number of treatments can vary due to the severity of submental fullness. If you think you are a candidate for any of these procedures, call to make your consultation and see what is the best option for you.
