Can Men Get a Kybella Treatment, Too?

Kybella® is a minimally invasive treatment option for reducing the appearance of a double chin. Susan J. Seman, DO, FACOS, provides in-office Kybella® treatments that can improve your profile and boost your self-confidence, all without the need for incisions or downtime.

In just a few treatments with Kybella, you can begin to notice a significant difference in the amount of fat underneath your chin. Since men and women can develop a stubborn double chin, both can benefit from in-office Kybella injections  

Why you have a double chin

A double chin results when excess fat cells build up. This fat, known as submental fat, can form under the chin due to weight gain or as a result of aging. You may also be prone to developing a double chin due to your genetic background.

Men and women are both susceptible to submental fat, especially as they get older. In the past, the only way to get rid of this fat was by undergoing invasive procedures, such as liposuction. However, thanks to advancements in aesthetic treatments for submental fat, you can now destroy fat cells with injections of Kybella.

How Kybella tackles submental fat

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable therapy for submental fat. Treatment focuses on destroying excess fat cells under your chin with synthetic deoxycholic acid. Your body naturally produces this acid, which helps break down and reabsorb dietary fat.

Through a series of Kybella injections, you can reduce fullness under your chin to enhance your natural profile and facial contours. Once the fat cells are destroyed, your body will eliminate them naturally and they’ll be gone for good.

Benefits of Kybella injections for men

Men interested in reducing the amount of excess fat under their chin can benefit from Kybella injections in several ways:

Customized treatment plans

Men tend to have more neck fat than women, and this fat typically spreads out over a larger area. Based on your unique needs, Dr. Seman can determine how many injections you'll need to reduce your double chin.

Fast and convenient treatments

Kybella injections don’t require any anesthesia, and you won’t have to schedule any downtime following your treatment.

In fact, you can return to most of your usual activities without any limitations immediately after your injections. Dr. Seman may recommend limiting strenuous activities for a few days to protect your results.

Long-lasting results

After your course of Kybella injections, the acid will begin destroying the excess fat cells under your chin, and you should see optimal results in several weeks. You shouldn’t need additional Kybella injections as long as you maintain your weight and follow a healthy diet and exercise plan.

Maintenance injections of Kybella may be necessary at a later time if you gain weight or notice changes under your chin due to aging.

If you’re unhappy with your profile due to a double chin, schedule a consultation to find out if Kybella is right for you. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Susan J. Seman, DO, FACOS, today.
