Kybella/Double Chin Fat Reduction

This groundbreaking procedure consists of injecting small amounts of Kybella (a bioengineered fat dissolver) into the fat pocket under the chin with the aim of reducing a double chin and restoring a sharp and youthful contour of the chin and upper neck.

What is Kybella?
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring acid that helps breakdown dietary fat. It is FDA-approved for injection into the submental fat fad (double chin).

How is the procedure performed?
A series of small injections are placed into the treatment area in a grid like fashion.

How many treatment sessions will I need?
It depends on how prominent the fat pad under your chin is. Most people require 2 or 3 treatment sessions to get the desired results.

Are the results permanent?
Yes, the fat cells get dissolved and this effect is permanent.

What are the risks?
  • There are very minimal risks for this procedure. Most people experience mild to moderate swelling and mild pain for a few days after the procedure.
  • Rare side effects are injections into a nerve which can cause problems with moving certain lower facial muscles.
