Today, more than ever, we live in a photo- and selfie-focused society through social media. And with the onset of apps and programs that can enhance and modify one’s appearance in photos, it is clear that many of us wish for such enhancements in real life.
One such enhancement of which many search for a treatment is excess fat under the chin, also known as a double chin. Truth be told, fat in this area is not always able to be targeted with diet and exercise. Sometimes, this stubborn fat is caused by genetic disposition and no amount of working out or eating healthy can help minimize it.
Fortunately, there’s Kybella, a FDA-approved injectable that destroys fat cells under the chin — permanently. Keep reading to learn more.

Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid. This is a material that the body naturally makes and is the key ingredient that targets and dissolves fat. During your procedure, we will apply a grid to the treatment area in order to accurately mark where injections are to be placed. The injectable targets fat yet leaves surrounding tissues intact.
What’s more, Kybella stops cells from storing fat again in the future. Some patients require more than one appointment in order to achieve the results they desire. A consultation can determine your best course of treatment.
Following your Kybella treatment
After your Kybella procedure, most experience swelling in the area for about one week. However, you may return to your regular daily activities immediately after. Results develop gradually over time, and substantial results are usually seen in four to eight weeks after being treated.
Further, Kybella can even be used to dissolve fat in other areas of the body that are less than one inch thick, such as armpit fat and fat around the knees.
