Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin Without Surgery!

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) showed that in 2014 approximately 68% of people were concerned with chin and neck fat. If you have thought about getting rid of your double chin there are now a variety of solutions available without going under the knife. But how does one decide which solution is best? Two great options are the CoolSculpting Mini and Kybella. And, in a busy practice like Monmouth Plastic Surgery in Red Bank, we have a need for both of these effective options.

*Each individual’s treatment and/or results may vary based on the patient’s anatomy.

So, the bottom line is that for the patient that is concerned about downtime and may be willing to sacrifice efficacy, I may recommend the CoolSculpting Mini. For the patients that want more efficacy but still non-surgical and are willing to tolerate more downtime and swelling, I would recommend Kybella. I foresee that I could mix and match both techniques as well. It is possible to treat a patient first with the CoolSculpting Mini and, as their fat gets localized, then add the Kybella procedure. There is a role for a combination of treatments.
