The dreaded “double chin” consists of stubborn fat accumulation beneath the chin. Men and women, even those who are fit and in good health, can be affected by a double chin. Since problem areas like the under-chin are difficult to treat through diet and exercise, people believe that they have to live with a poorly defined and chubby facial appearance. In the past, surgical liposuction was the only treatment to ensure fat removal from beneath the chin. However, this is no longer the case! A revolutionary injectable treatment called KYBELLA® has been approved by the FDA to treat this stubborn submental fat.
What Is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, the deoxycholic acid aids in the destruction and absorption of fat cells. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, the body removes the dead cells through its natural metabolic processes. Over time, you will notice a reduction in submental fat and a slimmer facial appearance.
Am I a Candidate for KYBELLA® Treatments?
Patients considering KYBELLA® have stubborn under-chin fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. You should be in good health before undergoing a KYBELLA® treatment and should not have an infection in the treatment area. Men and women considering KYBELLA® often do not desire a procedure of invasive nature like liposuction.
Benefits of KYBELLA®
- Non-surgical treatments
- No incisions; no scarring
- Safe and effective
- Minimal side effects
- Quick treatments
- Shorter recovery period
- Fast-acting results

KYBELLA® provides the permanent, long-lasting removal of submental fat. Some patients may require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. You should begin to see a noticeable reduction of fat beneath the chin two weeks after your procedure.
