What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is proven to remove excess fat located underneath the chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When KYBELLA® is injected into fat beneath the chin, it literally destroys those fat cells, causing the area to naturally tighten, which creates a smoother, sleeker neckline and profile. At this point, fat cells can no longer be stored or accumulated in this part of the body, so once a patient is completely satisfied with their appearance, they don’t need any further treatments.
The Benefits of KYBELLA® Treatments
- Sleeker Jawline: By making the jawline more defined, KYBELLA® can help promote a more youthful, confident appearance.
- Permanent Solution: Like we touched on above, the results with KYBELLA® lasts forever. Once your treatments have been completed, you never have to worry about your double chin coming back.
- Minimally Invasive: In the past, the only solution for submental fullness was surgery. KYBELLA® is a quick and easy option where just a few strategic injections. Most patients only need a small amount of topical anesthetic to experience little to no discomfort during the procedure.
- Convenient: A single KYBELLA® treatment only takes about 20 minutes, and there is little to no downtime necessary afterward. Submental swelling can occur for 5-7 days after treatment, and full results will not be apparent for 4-6 weeks.

What is the difference between Kybella and liposuction for a double chin?
To rid the fat underneath your chin, there are two ways you can go about it: liposuction or Kybella. Typically, with liposuction, you will undergo an actual surgical procedure that can take 1-2 sessions for necessary results to be achieved. With Kybella, treatment usually requires 2-4 sessions but leaves no scars. This is one of the reasons many patients opt for Kybella because it is administered through a small syringe. This allows you to achieve a beautiful, more youthful appearance that doesn’t require leaving a scar behind.
If I gain weight after having Kybella, will my double chin come back?
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the fat underneath your chin will not come back. Because this particular area is composed of fat cells, Kybella treatment will help to break them down, but if you go on to gain weight in the future, there is a possibility that your double chin will come back. When undergoing this type of treatment, it is important that you follow a well-balanced diet and exercise routine to maintain a healthy weight and avoid additional fat cells developing in this area of your face.
How many treatments will I need?
Elizabeth will customize your treatment plan based on your individual needs, but you can expect to see dramatic results in 2-4 sessions. Some patients may require up to 6 visits, which are all spaced one month apart. This will ensure you are not receiving too much at one time, and you are allowing the synthetic deoxycholic acid to move into place and destroy the necessary fat cells in a timely manner. Each patient is different, and the severity of each case will likely determine how many injections are necessary to give you the results you desire.
How long will my results last?
Fortunately, when choosing Kybella, you can expect lifelong results that require no additional treatment. But there is one caveat…you must maintain a healthy weight. As mentioned earlier, it is possible for this area of fat cells to return if you begin to gain weight. It’s important that you follow the instructions and suggestions of your skincare specialist to ensure you are able to maintain your new appearance. If you have any concerns, Elizabeth will address them and offer available treatment options in the future should you need them.
