Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that improves the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells. Submental fullness, commonly known as “double chin,” is a common facial aesthetic condition that is often undertreated. It can affect both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors, such as aging, genetics and weight gain. Submental fullness is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.

About the Procedure

Kybella® is injected into the full area under your chin, breaking down fat cells and preventing them from holding fat in the future. The amount of the injection you will need depends on the amount of fat below your chin, and how much of it you want to get rid of. You will likely need 2 to 4 treatments to achieve your desired look. Treatments are typically scheduled at least one month apart. 

Your Results

The results of Kybella® are long lasting, and it's likely you won't need additional treatments after you've achieved your ideal results. After treatment, you may experience some temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising in the injection area. 

Ideal Candidate 

Kybella® could be for you if you have fullness beneath your chin (submental fullness) without excess skin laxity, have a stable weight, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the treatment.


Kybella® treatments take about 20 minutes each. You can have your appointment and be back to work the same day, and back to exercising within 2 to 4 hours.

The results of Kybella® are permanent. Usually, 2 to 3 treatments are necessary for ideal results.
