Kybella™ Treatments for Double Chin Fat
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 68% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin.
According to the survey, people are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes! Learn more about Kybella by watching our Kybella YouTube video featuring Dr. Callahan here!

What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered. Your results will depend on many factors, and during your cosmetic consultation the number of treatments and individual treatment plan will be discussed.
After being treated with KYBELLA, patients reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger based on their chin profile, as well as feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight and less bothered by submental fullness.
What to Expect
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the desired results are achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA is not expected.
