Dallas doctors using fat-eating drug on double chins

“We will likely see a different patient type seeking treatment with Kybella,”said Dr. Bardia Amirlak, an assistant professor at UT Southwestern. “Those averse to surgery, including more men, will likely be interested in this new non-surgical treatment for the double chin.”
According to the physicians, Kybella is not intended for other chin related issues such as sagging skin or “turkey neck,” which may be addressed through other treatments - nor has it been approved for reducing fat in other areas of the body.
While Kybella doesn't involve surgery, if it's successful then surgery might be needed. That's because once excess fat is removed, patients may still need to consider removing excess skin.
