Getting rid of a double chin has been a challenge without surgery until now. Fortunately, Dr. Elias of our Bakersfield office is now certified to use the very effective Kybella method to restore a more normal look for your chin.

Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can be caused by genetics, weight gain and aging. According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people are bothered by the excess fat beneath their chin. Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, unwanted fullness beneath your chin that causes the double chin look may not go away.


KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. KYBELLA® patients reported improvement in the visual and emotional impact of submental fat when asked how happy, bothered, self-conscious, embarrassed, old, and overweight they felt with respect to the amount of their submental fat after they received treatment.

So, now is your chance to come to a local Bakersfield medical office and have your double chin evaluated by a medical doctor. Dr. Elias will then prescribe the treatment method best for you that will get rid of that double chin look. We look forward to seeing you in the office.
