KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable medication that reduces the appearance of fat cells beneath the chin. It is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.


Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable technique used to target the fat beneath the chin. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in this area.

Even though Kybella doesn’t require surgery, some typical adverse effects include numbness, discomfort, swelling, bruising, and redness. Most of the time, Kybella’s recovery time is brief, though individual recovery times may vary. Most minor side effects go away in one to two weeks.

Kybella is a procedure that aims to deliver effects that last. The majority of patients who receive this treatment should have long-lasting improvements, sometimes even a lifetime. This is partly because of how deoxycholic acid, the treatment’s active ingredient, interacts with bodily fat cells, and partly because of how bodily fat cells function.

It’s best to plan the method well in advance of any significant occasions. The risk of infection can be decreased by thoroughly washing your face before the visit, and post-treatment bruising can be avoided by staying away from ibuprofen and acetaminophen.
