A double chin can make you self-conscious, but now you can do something about it. Kybella® is the first injectable treatment that removes your double chin. It works with no invasive procedures and eliminates excess fat for a more contoured chin, neck, and jaw.
Before Kybella®, removing a double chin meant invasive procedures like liposuction or a neck lift. Kybella® is the first FDA-approved injectable for removing submental (under the chin) fat. Kybella® works for moderate to severe submental fat. It shapes and contours your neck and chin, so you look slimmer and more youthful.

Submental fat often does not respond to weight loss or exercise, leaving you feeling stuck with a double chin. Kybella® works using a molecule called deoxycholic acid. This acid occurs in the digestive system and plays a role in digesting fats. This synthetic form works similarly on the fat cells in your double chin. It damages the cell membranes, causing the fat cells to break apart. Your lymphatic system will clear away the damaged cells over the following weeks.
Kybella® pricing can vary depending on your provider and your location. You can also expect more than one Kybella® treatment, so consider this when estimating cost. An average Kybella® session costs around $1000. How many sessions you need will depend on your response to treatment and how much submental fat you want to eliminate.
Kybella® results start to appear after about two weeks. They will continue to develop for two to three months after your last treatment. Most people need between two and six treatments to achieve their desired results. Fat cells do not regenerate, so your treated fat cells never come back. If your weight changes, the remaining fat cells may cause a noticeable change in your results.

Most people experience some bruising and swelling after Kybella® injections. These usually resolve within a few days. You can resume your regular activities after treatment. Some people choose to wait a day or two before resuming social activities to let the swelling start to resolve.
If you have moderate to severe submental fat, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®. Ideal candidates have isolated areas of stubborn fat under the chin and not much skin laxity. Your provider will review what you can expect from the treatment, so you have reasonable expectations.
