What is Kybella?
KYBELLA® is the first FDA approved non-surgical injection for improving the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, a condition that is commonly referred to as double chin. KYBELLA® is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. KYBELLA® injection is indicated for improvement in the appearance of severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults.
How to fix the double chin?
Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells in the area underneath the chin making it so that those cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat. This will help improve the appearance of the chin area.
We offer other options to treat the double chin area, such as chin liposuction. Both of these options may be discussed with the doctor during your consult to find out which would be best.
