Over time, men and women experience weight fluctuations and the natural aging process, making it very easy to accumulate excess submental fat, which is more commonly known as a double chin. Genetics can also play a significant role in the appearance of a double chin, as sometimes diet and exercise cannot resolve this issue independently. Excess fat can be challenging to treat, but KYBELLA® can help. KYBELLA® is the first FDA-approved injectable drug used to reduce the appearance of your double chin.



Ideal candidates are individuals who experience excess fat under their chin, giving the appearance of a double chin. Candidates must be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the results provided. If you are pregnant or nursing, you are ineligible for the procedure. Men and women with a history of dysphagia (trouble swallowing) are also not suitable candidates for KYBELLA®.

How KYBELLA® Works

KYBELLA® is comprised of deoxycholic acid and is a fast, easy treatment that is injected into the fatty tissue under the chin. The main function of deoxycholic acid is to help break down and absorb fat, and with KYBELLA®, it permanently destroys fat cells and disables them from accumulating or storing fat in the future. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve maximum results.




KYBELLA® is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that does not require any downtime; however, patients should avoid vigorous exercise, sun, and heat exposure for three to five days after treatment. Swelling, numbness, bruising, and redness in the treated area are common after KYBELLA® treatments, but these effects are only temporary.



Most patients see visible results in two to four treatments, and the most noticeable results will be seen four to six weeks after treatments are completed. Because of the nature of KYBELLA®, touch-up treatments are not as necessary since the fat is removed for good. As long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained, results should be long lasting.
