Can I remove under chin fat without surgery?

Do you have stubborn fat below your chin that looks like a ‘double chin?’ You’re not alone. Many men and women struggle with excess fat below the chin and reducing it can be challenging, because it’s often due to genetics and not weight gain.

Can I remove under chin fat without surgery?

Yes, you can remove under chin fat without surgery with Kybella. Kybella is the first and only fat dissolving injection for submental fat, which is the excess fat below the chin and around the jawline. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body, and is used to metabolize dietary fat (learn more).

Remove under chin fat with Kybella

Kybella treatment consists of multiple injections made into the excess fat cells below the chin. The deoxycholic acid disrupts the membrane of the fat cells, and they are eventually absorbed and then expelled by the body. The fat cells treated with Kybella are permanently eliminated.

Is Kybella painful?

A topical numbing cream is applied to the targeted area at the start of treatment to minimize any discomfort.

What to expect after treatment

There is generally some swelling, bruising, and tenderness near the injection site that may last for several days.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

If you are looking to contour your chin and enhance your profile without surgery, you may be a good candidate for Kybella. Kybella is ideal for people with good skin tone and moderate-to-severe submental fat.
