Kybella is the first FDA-approved, non-surgical injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of submental fat, more commonly known as a double chin. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. Kybella does not improve sagging skin, it melts away fat, if you have sagging skin you may need a neck lift. Treatments are customized depending on the amount of fat under then chin and the aesthetic goals of that patient. Most patients will get 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
When to consider Kylella
- If you’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under your chin
- If you have extra fat under your chin but not saggy skin
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but your double chin doesn’t go away
