Living with a double chin can be discouraging for those of us who try to stay in shape. While living an active lifestyle can certainly go a long way in sculpting one’s body, submental fat is another issue altogether. There are sadly no exercises designed for under chin fat burning. If you’re struggling with persistent fat under your chin, seeking a professional treatment option may be right for you. Travis Shaw, MD is happy to provide a range of non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment options to help you achieve your ideal image.

Struggling With a Double Chin?

Submental fat or a “double chin” is the buildup of fat under the jaw. This excess layer of fat can develop from weight gain and aging. Due to the gradual loss of collagen our faces experience, developing a double chin becomes much more likely after 30. Whether you’ve developed your double chin through age or weight gain, its appearance is most likely unwelcome. This buildup of excess fat can make one feel older, heavier, and less attractive. Thankfully, non-surgical treatment options do exist.

Double Chin Reduction Options


Kybella was designed specifically for double chin reduction, but can also treat “turkey neck” and improve skin pigmentation. This minimally invasive treatment uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to break down and absorb stored fat cells. The treatment works quickly and is completely safe, providing long-lasting, radiant results.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Subtle changes via CoolSculpting become visible within 3 to 4 weeks of treatment. Dramatic results can typically be seen in 3 months’ time. Additional sessions can be done for greater improvement. Significant Kybella results appear after about 3 treatments and all side effects incurred from treatment usually subside within 7 days.
