Put Your Best Chin Forward with Kybella:

Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called the double chin.

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic Deoxycholic Acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Kybella may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You don’t want to have surgery
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

What to Expect:

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Dr. Vasisht will help determine how many treatment sessions you need, based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each Kybella treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not expect to receive more than 6 treatments.
