Double chins are a common condition that can occur due to aging, weight changes, and genetics. In some cases, exercise and dieting do not help to reduce the fat in this area of the body. KYBELLA® works to destroy the fat cells under the chin and prevent the ability of those cells to store fat.

What Is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is an FDA approved injectable that is designed to help destroy fat cells under the chin. Once Kybella is injected into the fat under the chin it works to dissolve the fat and leave you with a more defined profile.
Candidates For Double Chin Reduction Treatments
Typically, KYBELLA® is good for patients who are otherwise healthy and who:
- Are bothered by the fat under their chin
- Feel like their double chin makes them look older or heavier set than they actually are
- Don’t want to go through surgery
- Eat well and exercise a lot but can’t get rid of their double chin
How Do KYBELLA® Injections Work?
Kybella’s main ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid which works to naturally breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into chin fat, KYBELLA® works to destroy the fat cells and give patients a noticeably thinner profile.
Your KYBELLA® treatment will consist of a series of small injections under your chin. Your treatment session will take about 15-20 minutes, and the number of injections you receive will depend on the amount of fat under your skin and your cosmetic goals. Sometimes you may need to return for another treatment.
How Many Chin Fat Reduction Treatments Are Needed To Achieve The Results I Want?
Most patients need two to four treatments. Our doctors will consult with you about your cosmetic goals and the amount of chin fat present to determine how many KYBELLA® treatments will be necessary for you.
How Long Does KYBELLA® Last?
KYBELLA® works to actually destroy existing fat cells. The results should be permanent and no further treatment may be necessary for maintenance.
When Will I See Results From My Double Chin Reduction Treatments?
You can expect to see visible results from your KYBELLA® treatment at about four to eight weeks.
KYBELLA® Side Effects
You may experience swelling, numbness, or bruising under your chin following treatment. These effects are temporary and will dissipate on their own after a few days.
