What’s the Best Way to Get Rid of a Double Chin Without Surgery?

Submental fat is the appearance of that double chin that can affect your confidence while you stare at your reflection in the mirror. It creates self-consciousness as you go about your daily routine in NYC while wondering whether anyone has noticed this tell-tale sign of aging and weight gain.

Know that you are not alone in your struggle. Dr. Rokhsar consults with many patients on how best to reduce the fat in their chin area.

Ideal Treatment Options For Submental Fat

Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, an award-winning double board-certified surgeon and dermatologist, has the answers to the submental fat treatment options that you are looking for. He is at the forefront of research and development of advanced technology and surgical techniques that treat a variety of cosmetic problems including surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the double-chin. These include

Surgical Lipo

This procedure can help reduce the amount of fat under the chin. The results are a smooth and more contoured chin and jawline. During the chin liposuction, Dr. Rokhsar will make a small incision to insert a micro-cannula (a small tube) to suction out undesirable fat in the areas identified. The incision is so small that it does not require stitching. One session of liposuction will restore a tight chiseled jawline and remove your double chin.

Non-Surgical Kybella

If you prefer a non-invasive alternative to surgery, then Kybella is the answer. The FDA-approved injectable treatment contains deoxycholic acid that breaks down the unwanted submental fat. The procedure requires no downtime and a minimum of 2-3 sessions will be needed to achieve desired results. Dr. Rokhsar was one of the first doctors in the United States to offer Kybella treatment for patients in the Long Island, NYC, and Manhattan areas.

Dr. Cameron Rokhsar prefers liposuction and Kybella for double chin reduction treatment and mentions that while CoolSculpting is not an ideal treatment option for submental fat, it does have its merits in certain cases.

Treatments That Do Not Work – The Product Graveyard

Dr. Rokhsar takes great pride in always offering his patients the best solution. He believes that education is key when it comes to making informed cosmetic treatment decisions. Here he lists some of the treatment devices that have long since been replaced and are of no benefit to patients in treating submental fat.

  • SculpSure
  • Liposonix
  • Trusculpt Vanquish
