Surgery isn’t the only solution for a double chin. Thanks to Kybella, you can treat this issue without going under the knife. Improve your profile and say goodbye to that double chin for good. Better selfies are in your future!

What Is Kybella and How Can it Treat My Double Chin?

Kybella works by dissolving fat. It’s made from deoxycholic acid, a natural substance found in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected under the chin, this molecule destroys the fat cells so they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Each treatment takes about 20-25 minutes, and 2-3 treatments are typically needed (depending on the amount of fat present).

Quick Facts About Kybella

Kybella is a new treatment option, so you may not be as familiar with it as some of our other options. Here are a few quick facts to help you learn more about the procedure.

  • Quick- Treatment typically takes 20-25 minutes.
  • Minimal to No Downtime- You can return to your regular activities as soon as you’re comfortable. Downtime is much shorter than with a surgical treatment for a double chin.
  • Effective Results- Kybella works. Patients love the ability to treat a double chin without surgery.
  • Permanent- Once fat cells are destroyed, they do not regenerate. We expect patients to enjoy lasting results.

Is Kybella Right for Me?

Kybella is a very effective option for treating submental fullness due to fat underneath the chin. In many patients, the treatment can completely eliminate a double chin and it often leads to dramatic improvements in the profile and appearance. Since Kybella works by destroying fat cells, it is an ideal treatment option for patients with excess fat under the chin.

In some patients, their double chin is due to excessive skin and not due to fat.  If this is the case with you, Kybella might not be the best treatment option. We can help you determine if Kybella is a good treatment option for you at a consultation.
