If you have a double chin, you probably want to see it go away. This accumulation of fat in the submental (under the chin) area can cause a double chin and obscure your jawline. Kybella® can eliminate your double chin for a slimmer, more sculpted appearance.
What is Kybella®?
The FDA has approved Kybella® as the first injectable treatment to address submental fat. Before Kybella®, removing the appearance of a double chin often involved liposuction or a procedure like a neck lift. Kybella® only requires a series of injections with none of the recovery or discomfort associated with more invasive procedures.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® uses a molecule called deoxycholic acid. It acts in your digestive system to break up and dissolve fat from your food. When injected into the double chin area, it works on this fat in a similar way, breaking down the cell membranes of the fat cells. The body will remove these damaged fat cells over a few weeks.
How Long Will Kybella® Last?
Our body does not grow new fat cells, so the fat cells removed with Kybella® do not come back. The fat cells still in the area can enlarge and make the area look fuller again, so to keep your results looking optimal, we recommend maintaining a consistent weight and healthy lifestyle. You should not need any follow-up treatments after your first round of Kybella® sessions.
Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® is proven to yield impressive results as it targets the fat cells in your chin. By using a substance that naturally occurs in your body and fights dietary fat, you’re basically using your body to combat the cosmetic issue of a double-chin.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?
