Double Chin in Men
NYC men wondering how to get rid of a double chin will find there are many options available with Dr. B. Aviva Preminger. The number of men seeking double chin removal has increased along with the non-invasive options approved by the FDA. As the NY Times recently reported, “So many consumers don’t want a knife; they want a needle.” Men, in particular, do not want long recovery times. Nearly half of Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Preminger’s double chin removal patients are men.
Kybella® double chin treatment
Kybella® is an injectable double chin treatment made from deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced in the body to aid with fat absorption. The ideal patient has a mild to moderate double chin and does not carry risk factors for poor wound healing (such as steroid use, diabetes, poor skin quality or smoking).
Dr. Preminger numbs the skin with ice and lidocaine, and then injects the substance directly into the submental fat below the chin, where it liquidates fat cells that are reabsorbed by the body.
The average treatment takes 15-30 minutes, with noticeable results within two to six sessions, each spaced a month apart. Some patients have said their chin “felt weird for a couple days – like jelly” and was a tad swollen, but there was no bruising or downtime. The end result has been described as “life-changing,” and the effects are permanent as long as the patient commits to a healthy lifestyle.
