What is Kybella?

KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness also commonly referred to as a “double chin”.

How does Kybella work?

KYBELLA® is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

How long is the procedure?

Each treatment takes about 15 minutes. Kybella is individually tailored meaning the number of treatments is based on the amount of submental fat and treatment goals. *Multiple injections under the chin per treatment; up to 6 treatments at least 1 month apart.1

Some people may get up to 50 injections in a single treatment, with up to six single treatments no less than a month apart, the FDA says.*

What causes a double chin?

Many factors beyond your control, such as family genetics and aging, can cause a double chin. Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise, you cannot get rid of that excess fat. Before Kybella was approved, the only effective treatment option was surgical liposuction.
For non-invasive facial treatment, patients may choose Kybella for fat removal under the chin. The injectable treatment can slim the face for a more defined profile and appearance.

How long is the recovery process with Kybella?

Downtime is at least 4 days of swelling, bruising, numbness in the area that can last 30 days or more, and some pain.*
