It is one of the most fundamental facts about beauty: a tight and angular jawline can make or break a face. Simply put, the more pronounced and chiseled the jawline, the more attractive a person looks.
And it’s not just attractiveness that a good chin and tight jawline exudes, but health and wellness as well. A major study on the psychology and science of beauty found that:
“facial adiposity, or the perception of weight in the face, significantly predicts perceived health and attractiveness.”
According to a report by the School of Psychology at the University of Aberdeen and the Department of Psychology at the University of Stirling in Scotland, women identified ‘more prominent cheekbones’ and ‘larger jawbones’ as highly attractive traits in men, while also being a sign of good genes and a healthy lifestyle.
Yet many men and women often suffer from excess fat around the chin and neck area, without themselves being unhealthy or unattractive; it can simply be a matter of genetics, like a crooked nose or bigger ears.
If you’ve begun even cursory research into cosmetic options for under chin or double chin treatments, you’ll know that the two most effective options on the market today are liposuction and Kybella. While both treatment options have their benefits and drawbacks, in this article we shall be looking exclusively at how Kybella treatments work and why they are so revolutionary.
Traditional liposuction removes large amounts of fat on different parts of the body under anesthesia and repositions excess skin and tissue so as to tighten hanging skin. Liposuction is a dramatic single procedure which is invasive, traumatic and requires lengthy recovery time. Kybella, on the other hand, is a non-invasive chin fat reduction procedure which uses deoxycholic acid injections to simply melt away fat. This deoxycholic acid breaks down fat by destroying the cell membrane, leading to cytolysis. The excess fat is then gradually but efficiently expunged by the body’s own immune cells.
Instead of physically cutting and removing fat tissue from the body, Kybella melts excess fat through a unique acid formula. Kybella breaks down fat cells and allows the treated areas to achieve improved contour naturally, without the need for surgical incisions and manipulation.
Kybella can permanently dissolve fat cells without incisions or scars.
Another major revolution for the treatment of under chin and double chin fat is Kybella’s affordability. Price is one of the key things that helps determine whether or not a cosmetic procedure catches on in the marketplace, and Kybella treatments are priced at a fraction of the cost of traditional fat removal procedures like liposuction.
Finally, with all the excitement and interest for this new way to get rid of double chins and excess neck fat, we urge potential patients to only visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon or board-certified dermatologist, as these are the core practitioners in aesthetics who are trained well enough to perform a Kybella injection.
