FDA approved injection can melt away chin fat
There's a new treatment to melt away "double-chin fat," and you don't have to go under the knife for it.
The Kybella procedure is an FDA approved non- surgical injection, which eliminates fat below the chin.
Midlands Clinic Dermatologist Dr. Indy Chabra is one of the first dermatologists in Siouxland to offer the fat removing treatment.
"The product works by dissolving fat cells and releasing the fat, so it works in a permanent manner. So the number of injections really depends on the degree of submental fullness, how much fat there is underneath the chin. So it varies person to person. In this patient, it was 20 injections."
The procedure costs $1200. Chabra says his patients experience visible results around their chin and areas around the neck.
