Reduce Your Double Chin Without Surgery

Olansky Dermatology Associates logo

According to American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68% of people admit that excess fat under their chin and neck is a chief cosmetic concern. In the past, the only way to effectively reduce or eliminate a double chin appearance was to go under the knife of plastic surgery. However, today’s advancements bring a favorable alternative to the table, and one that does not require surgery. Kybella injections are gaining fast popularity as the latest non-surgical treatment to address excess chin fat. Kybella injections are delivered just like Botox or other facial fillers or injectables. They are safe, minimally invasive and highly convenient for patients that do not want to incur the risks of plastic surgery.

Why is a “double chin” so common? Facial aging is largely responsible. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and muscle. Therefore, weakened chin muscles combined with surrounding sagging skin in the neck area and the law of gravity will create the unwanted “double chin” appearance as we age.

What are Kybella injections exactly? Kybella, which is FDA-approved, is comprised of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. This is the same type of bio acid that our bodies naturally produce to absorb fat. Once Kybella is injected into the under chin region, it goes to work by instantly rupturing the fat cell membranes that make up your double chin. With the permanent destruction of these fat deposits, patients benefit from a dramatic reduction in their double chin appearance, without having to undergo a facelift or neck lift. It is important to note that Kybella injections are not designed to address excess skin in the neck. However, some younger patients do notice minimal tightening after the procedure.

How many treatments are needed? Repeated Kybella injections are often recommended to achieve ideal results, but each patient has unique needs and responses to treatment. One treatment session can include up to 50 injections. For better safety and results, up to six single treatments can be administered no less than one month apart.

Olansky Dermatology Associates is proud to offer Kybella injections to patients in the Atlanta area. Don’t let a double chin ruin your self-confidence and quality of life. You don’t have to go under the knife to fix it!

This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had going to a dermatologist. Every interaction I had with the staff was pleasant and they were so helpful. I had accidentally cancelled my appointment and the girls at the front desk help me get in so I could be seen and someone could help me. Which I really appreciated, most places would have just turned me away. The doctor or pa I saw that day I can’t remember her name was lovely and took great care of me. I will be going to Olansky’s going forward. You will not be disappointed! The staff is excellent!

Dr. Bender honestly changed my life around. I had extremely bad hormonal and cystic acne, and have been told for years that there is nothing I can do but wash my face and etc.. Dr. Bender gave me hope that there is hope she helped get my confidence back and now I’m finally free. She cares about her patients and takes her time with you every visit. If you need help in anything derma-logical then you really need to go to her.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!
