Kybella® Chin Sculpting
Are you bothered by extra fullness under your chin? “Double chin” as this condition is commonly referred to, can be something you have had your entire life or just developed recently. Both men and women are affected by submental fullness (double chin) which can be caused by weight gain, genetics and/or aging. You don’t have to be overweight to have extra fullness beneath your chin and sometimes, no amount of diet or exercise alleviates the problem.

Kybella® Frequently Asked Questions
Is Kybella® Right For Me?
If you are bothered (sefl-conscious, embarrassed or unhappy) by the fullness under your chin or if you feel your chin area makes you look older or heavier than you actually are, or if you don’t want to have surgery, Kybella® will be a good fit for you. Kybella® is a good fit if you eat well and exercise regularly but still can’t lose the extra fullness beneath your chin.
How Does Kybella® Work?
The active ingredient in Kybella®, synthetic deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. After being injected into the fat under the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells resulting in a noticeable reduction of excess fullness beneath the chin. Once destroyed, these cells are unable to store or accumulate fat so additional treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goal.
What should I expect with Kybella®?
Prior to starting treatment we will examine the area around and beneath your chin to determine if Kybella® is right fo you. We will then tailor your treatment to fit your aesthetic goals.
How is Kybella® administered?
Kybella® can only be administered by a Kybella®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment we will administer multiple small injections beneath your chin. This process typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections you receive depends on the amount of fat under your chin and your desired aesthetic goals.
