KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that safely and effectively reduces excess fat under the chin, leaving a smooth and contoured appearance.
Submental fullness, or a double chin, is something that many people experience due to natural aging, genetics, or weight gain. The accumulation of fat cells in the neck and the chin creates a double chin, which can make a person appear older and heavier.

Ideal candidates for KYBELLA® are non-smokers who are in good health and wish to remove excess fat from under the chin.
When KYBELLA® is injected into your skin, it destroys the fat cells in the targeted area. The substance injected is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down and absorbs fat. The exact locations and number of injections will be determined during your personal consultation. However, most patients will undergo two to four treatments spaced one month apart.
After the KYBELLA® treatment, patients may experience varying degrees of swelling, along with slight discomfort, redness, and possible bruising. All of these side effects should dissipate quickly.
Because KYBELLA® eliminates and destroys the fat cells, patients will not have to undergo treatment again as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Patients will experience a smoother, more contoured facial appearance after their KYBELLA® treatment.
