Put Your Best Chin Forward with KYBELLA®

The dreaded double chin. You get older, gravity takes hold and even if you haven’t gained weight, the double chin can appear. Previously the only treatment options available to get rid of a double chin were liposuction or plastic surgery. But with the new non-surgical treatment called KYBELLA®, patients with unwanted fat under their chin can achieve long-term improvements in their appearance and profile.

KYBELLA® is the first in its class medicine injected into fat under the chin to remove the fat cells below the chin (submental fat). The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once fat cells are broken down by the molecules, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, thus resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

What to expect from your KYBELLA® Treatment

During the procedure, we will clean your skin, mark the proposed areas of treatment, inject numbing medicine and then inject KYBELLA® into the areas of unwanted fat.

After the procedure, expect moderate swelling, redness, firmness, numbness, achiness and bruising in the treated area that should resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks. The response to treatment becomes apparent over several weeks as the removed fat cells are removed from the area by the body’s scavenger cells. Additional treatment(s) can be scheduled 6 weeks apart as needed. Most patients will require 2-4 treatments for maximal benefit.
