For both men and woman; seeing extra skin and fat hanging under the chin can likely be an unwelcome sight. Fat under the chin, is not uncommon and thankfully there are ways to treat it. Kybella is the only FDA-approved treatment that effectively kills fat cells under the chin to create a tighter area under the chin. If you are looking for a non-surgical option to treat fat around the chin, Kybella is the answer.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment that utilizes synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that breaks down dietary fat. By injecting Kybella in to the area around the chin, fat cells are dissolved which gets rid of hanging skin. Once destroyed, the fat cells can no longer store and accumulate fat. For this reason, it is very rare for a patient to get further treatment past the point they achieve their aesthetic goal. 

What To Expect With Kybella Treatments

Kybella treatments include several small injections in the area underneath the chin. It is likely that patients will receive multiple treatments over time to get the full results that they desire. The procedure is relatively quick and take approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Like many injections and aesthetic services there is little to no downtime associated with the treatment. Patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, or bruising around the injection site.
