Excess fat under the jawline can cause the appearance of a “double chin”.
Many factors can contribute to excess neck fat and it can be extremely difficult to get rid of. Women specifically suffer from “turkey wattle,” which is excess loose skin under the chin caused by gravity and aging skin.
There are many treatment options available at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York to help reduce double chins.
What are the treatment options?
How does kybella work?
In the past, the only solutions to fixing double chins were liposuction or plastic surgery. Now, Kybella, an injectable that breaks down the targeted submental fat cells under the chin, can fix your double chin with little to no recovery. It works best on chin fat, not sagging skin due to aging skin.

How does Liposculpture work?
Dilute local anesthetic is infiltrated into the fat, loosening the fat cells so they can be gently suctioned out of the body via micro-cannulas. Patients are generally comfortable during the recovery process, which typically takes 3-4 days and are requested to wear a comprehensive band for a week after to maintain healthy blood flow and minimize swelling. Bruising and swelling are usually slight and resolve within 10 to 14 days.

How does SculpSure work?
Sculpture utilizes laser energy to heat the treatment area, destroying fat cells while leaving local skin and tissue intact. The body eliminates the treated cells through natural processes.
Treatments are brief and comfortable. While you can complete your treatment on your lunch break, the results can be dramatic and long-lasting.
