Working at Azul, I’ve noticed an interesting trend in the last few years. Generally, women have made up the majority of people who come in to get cosmetic surgery or medical spa treatments. That isn’t saying that men haven’t gotten cosmetic surgery, far from it. It’s just that it has been far more common to see more women over the course of the day than men. Well, that is starting to change and, boy, is it changing quickly.
One of the major drivers of this upward trend are cosmetic procedures that are tailor-made for men. Popular cosmetic treatments like facelifts and neck lifts, and eyelid surgery are customized to highlight a man’s more masculine look. By far, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures that men go for is what we’ve nicknamed the “Double Chin Shot”. If you want to get rid of your double chin, you want Kybella.
Here is the unvarnished truth: targeted weight loss often doesn’t work. When you exercise and burn fat, you’ll only see full-body results, as it’s nearly impossible to target specific areas. If you have a double chin, either due to genetics or simply because that is where fat accumulates in your body, it can be almost impossible to get rid of it through exercise and diet alone. This has left many men (and women) wondering if there is anything they can do to enhance their profile and finally eliminate that double chin. Of course there is always surgery, but liposuction is expensive and “going under the knife” can be very stressful for many people.
Thankfully, a non-surgical option has arrived! Kybella is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that can help eliminate your double chin after just a few treatments. Unlike liposuction, this is a non-surgical procedure with a very short and mild recovery period.
It all starts with me, one of Azul’s master injectors. After careful analysis of your double chin, I numb the area and begin to inject precise amounts of deoxycholic acid just under your chin. This substance breaks down fat cells, allowing your body to naturally reabsorb and eliminate them permanently. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring chemical found in the body, that helps to break down and regulate fat cells. This substance will destroy the fat, but leave the other tissue under your chin completely unharmed. And unlike liposuction, you don’t have to worry about surgical recovery. You will experience redness, numbness and swelling under the chin, which means the treatment is working!
You won’t be able to see Kybella’s results right away, as your body needs time to metabolize the destroyed fat cells. Most patients need two treatments to get a full result, but occasionally it can takes more than two treatments. In consultation with one of our master injectors, you’ll decide when you’ve reached your desired double chin reduction goals. Then, after your course of treatment is complete, you will be able to enjoy the long-lasting results.
Although many men are completely happy just getting rid of their double chin, others wish to continue with their neck rejuvenation. Ultherapy and Infini, both non-surgical treatments designed to tighten the skin, can be used under the chin to get rid of loose skin left behind after your Kybella treatment.
The bottom line is that the reason so many men are coming in for Kybella is because it works. Using cosmetic procedures such as Kybella can help you reach your targeted fat reduction goals faster and with more success than you would get through exercise and diet alone. If you’d like to learn more about Kybella, or schedule a free consultation with one of our master injectors, feel free to give our office a call at (239) 415-7576. We will be delighted to walk you through the entire procedure, and perhaps suggest other complementary procedures for a harmonious rejuvenation.
