Double chins tend to hang around regardless of how well you eat or how much you exercise, because they are often not due to weight gain. Although cosmetic surgery can dramatically improve your profile, you may be wondering if you can ditch your double chin without surgery.

Can I Ditch My Double Chin Without Surgery?

Yes, you can say so long to that stubborn fat below the chin with Kybella. Kybella is a non-surgical treatment that can refine your profile, and rejuvenate your neck area without surgery or downtime.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a FDA approved injectable treatment for reducing submental fullness, which is the excess fat below the chin often referred to as a double chin. It is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that is naturally produced by the body, and helps with the digestion of dietary fat.

How does Kybella work?

When Kybella is injected into the fat below the chin, it breaks down the cell membrane, and gradually dissolves the fat cells. The treated fat is gone for good (click here to learn more).

How many Kybella treatments do I need?

Most people need 2-4 treatments to achieve the desired results. Sessions are spaced about 6 weeks apart.

What to expect after treatment

Patients can expect to see swelling in the neck area, which can last for up to a week.

When will I see results with Kybella?

The body takes approximately 1-2 months to flush out the dead fat cells. Consequently, optimal results won’t be seen until about 2 months after the final treatment.
