What is Kybella?

If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce fullness beneath your chin, Kybella® may be right for you. Kybella is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin.

What Does Kybella Treat?

Both men and women may be affected by submental fullness, which can be caused by genetics, weight gain or aging. Approximately 67% of people surveyed said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin. Kybella is a 2015 ALLURE® Best of Beauty Breakthrough award recipient that eliminates fat under the chin and reduces submental fullness or double chin.

How Kybella Works

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary neck fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate neck fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

What to Expect

Before starting treatment, our highly trained nurse injector will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella is right for you. Then, we will tailor your double chin removal treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about an hour. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Each treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments. After treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Visit our clinic in Overland Park, Kansas City and get a neck fat removal treatment from our specialists.
