How can I get rid of my double chin without surgery?

Do you have a pesky double chin that makes you feel self-conscious?  If you would like to fix your double chin but don’t want to undergo surgery, there are effective alternatives available.

How can I get rid of my double chin without surgery?

You can use Kybella to fix your double chin without surgery.   Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for moderate-to-severe fat below the chin.

How Kybella works

Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, and is specially formulated to break down the unwanted fat cells.  Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced by the body and helps to metabolize dietary fat.  Kybella destroys the membrane of the fat cells, and the treated cells are cleared away by the body over the following weeks.  Once the fat cells are removed, they won’t come back.   

Kybella is a simple in-office procedure that takes about 20 minutes.  There is no downtime after Kybella, which makes it very convenient for people with busy schedules.

What to expect

Swelling can be expected after Kybella, and it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to resolve. Some fat reduction will be noticeable after the second treatment, but optimal results won’t be seen until a few weeks after the final session.  The chin will be noticeably slimmer and more contoured after Kybella.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients need 2-4 treatments to achieve optimal results with Kybella.

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is ideal for younger people with good skin elasticity, because it removes fat, but does not tighten the skin.
