If you have a double chin but are hesitant to have surgery, there is now an alternative. Kybella®™ is the only non-surgical treatment for a double chin that has been approved by the FDA. Provided through injections, Kybella® contours the chin and improves your profile. It consists of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body and safely destroys excess fat cells.

Most people require 2-6 treatments on a monthly basis for optimal results. We customize Kybella® treatments for every patient based on the amount of fat under the chin.

There have been more than 20 studies showing the safety and effectiveness of Kybella®. If you take certain medications, such as antiplatelets and anticoagulants, you may not be a good candidate for Kybella®. Be sure to tell us about any medicines you take.

What Can Kybella® Do For Me?

It can improve your profile by reducing the fat under the chin that causes a double chin appearance.

What is a Kybella® Treatment Like?

After ice is used to numb the chin area, the injections take only about 15 minutes, after which you can go home or back to work.

How Long Do Kybella® Results Last?

Kybella® injections are permanent. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, they cannot accumulate fat again.

What Will I Experience While Recovering From Kybella® injections?

As with most dermal injections, you can expect some minor swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and discomfort in the chin area where you received the injections. The area may also feel a bit hard to the touch for a short period of time. These effects usually resolve within 2-3 days but can extend for up to a month.
