Kybella™ is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of excess submental, or “double chin,” pockets of fat without requiring surgery. The result is a smoother and better-defined facial contour and improved profile.

What is Kybella™?

Kybella® is an injectable treatment that contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that is already naturally present in your body and is used to speed the metabolism of dietary fat. When injected into the under-chin area, Kybella® melts stubborn fat away, resulting a smoother, sleeker appearance.

Your Kybella™ Procedure

Kybella™ is a nonsurgical in-office procedure that typically takes about 20 to 30 minutes to perform. Because it is minimally invasive, you can expect to resume your normal daily activities directly after your appointment.

Kybella™ Before & After

Kybella™ Results

Once Kybella™ is injected into the fat beneath your chin, it destroys those targeted fat cells. As a result, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, making Kybella™ a permanent solution to the double chin. It is still important, though, to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to keep the same excellent results long-term.

While most people see visible results after two to four treatment sessions, the exact amount that you require can vary, and up to six treatments may be administered. During your consultation with Dr. Krant, you can discuss your needs and goals, and Dr. Krant will design a treatment plan custom-tailored to help you reach your desired outcome.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella™?

Anyone who is bothered by the appearance of a double chin and is in general good health may be an excellent candidate for Kybella™ injections. In many cases, submental pockets of fat are determined by genetics and are thus resistant to diet and exercise alone.
