Sorry, Bustle: Drop the Double Chin with Kybella

Recently, Bustle published an op-ed piece on the many reasons you should love your double chin. We’re all about loving yourself at RefinedMD, and that’s why we offer so many treatments to help your confidence soar. Double chins plague men and women of all sizes, but Kybella is a minimally invasive injection that dissolves the fat that causes your double chin in just 3 – 6 sessions on average. It uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring acid, to remove that fat for good.

The first reason Bustle gives for embracing your double chin is because you’re in the majority (at least according to them). That’s right—you should love your double chin simply because a lot of people have them. Commonality and popularity are far from the best reasons to settle for something that bothers you. When it comes to the number-one reason from Bustle, we’ll have to take a hard pass and remember what adults told us when we were kids. If everyone jumped off a bridge, perhaps while loving their double chin, that doesn’t mean we should.

Double Chins, Toil and Trouble

Bustle’s second reason to be down with double chins is because it’s getting difficult to draw the line between what’s acceptable and what’s not. This reasoning veers into the discourse of considering the inherent risks of surgery, and it’s true—previously, liposuction was the only way to vanquish a double chin. However, Kybella is an FDA-improved injectable, much like Botox, that provides a non-surgical solution with no downtime.

However, it’s the article’s third reason that veers off-course. It seems double chins should be loved because they’re fun for our intimate partner to nibble on. To each their own, but keeping a double chin just because it makes for a great addition to date night for some folks feels like a stretch. Of course, if that floats your boat, you probably wouldn’t be thinking about Kybella to begin with! Kybella is an excellent option for those who are tired of their double chins and are ready for a change.

Chin Up!

Bustle continues to reel about, claiming that double chins give you more character than a “solitary” one. This seems to fly in the face of their number-one reason, which is that most people have a double chin. The reality is that character isn’t typically gleaned from outer appearances. We are all unique, and if you want to improve your appearance as an act of self-love, we’re all for it—and Kybella can help.

The reasoning continues with the tired claim that beauty standards aren’t real, but if that were the case there probably wouldn’t be a list of reasons to love your double chin to begin with. More aptly, beauty standards evolve, progress, and are often unique person to person, at least to some degree. Beauty might be in the eye of the beholder, but you deserve to love what you behold in the mirror. 

Your Chins, Your Choice

The remaining so-called reasons to love a double chin are that “fat isn’t a bad word,” embracing your double chin is a sign of progress, hating your double chin will keep you from experiencing things, and because you’ll “relate to some pretty cool people.” Fat certainly isn’t a bad word, but it’s also not something you need to live with if you’d be happier otherwise. We’re confident that you can relate to some cool people if you get Kybella as well and you certainly don’t need to skip a treatment you want just to experience progress. Progress can also be doing what’s best for you regardless of what anyone else thinks—and if you’d rather be discreet? Kybella is non-surgical so there won’t be any incisions or downtime necessary to give away your secret!

Kybella does require multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart in order to make sure that the previous treatments have completed their cycle of fat-busting.
