Having a double chin can negatively affect your self-image and how others perceive you. Excess fat in the neck may cause you and those around you to view you as overweight, old, or unattractive. KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved substance that when injected can reduce submental fullness, which is excess fat in the submental region beneath the chin. After just a few KYBELLA® injections, your neckline can be permanently slimmer.

You may be a candidate for KYBELLA® if you are a man or woman of any age with submental fullness. If you are bothered by the appearance of your double chin or by the presence of excess fat in your neck area, you may be a good candidate for this treatment. Good skin quality is imperative for the best results with KYBELLA®; patients with poor skin quality in the neck should consider a neck lift instead. With only a few exceptions (such as having certain medical conditions), most people who are interested in KYBELLA® can undergo this non-surgical fat removal procedure.
KYBELLA® is administered in the doctor’s office in a short, 20-minute treatment. For the treatment, KYBELLA® is injected into several points in the submental area beneath your chin. Afterward, you can return to your daily business. Over the next six to eight weeks, the deoxycholic acid from your KYBELLA® injections will gradually break down the fat cells in the region. Once the cells have been destroyed, the body will flush them away. Depending on the amount of fat that you wish to have removed, your KYBELLA® treatment plan may include up to six sessions spaced approximately one month apart.
The results of KYBELLA® injections become increasingly visible over the six to eight weeks that follow your treatment. As the fat cells are destroyed and flushed from the body, you will observe your neckline becoming gradually slimmer. Improvements in the definition of the neckline will continue over the course of your full treatment. Once your treatment plan is complete, no additional treatments should be needed. The deoxycholic acid from the KYBELLA® injections will remain in the submental region and will continue to assist in the breakdown of excess neck fat. Your double chin will be gone, and your neckline will be more defined. Your results will help your whole appearance look more youthful and slender.
KYBELLA® injections can eliminate a double chin and restore a slimmer and better-defined neckline.
