Kybella

Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable treatment to reduce your submental fat (double chin). It's the only FDA-approved injectable drug for this purpose.


Kybella is the commercial name for synthetic deoxycholic acid. Your body naturally produces deoxycholic acid in your digestive system. It helps to break down fats so they're more easily digested. Deoxycholic acid is also used as an emulsifier in foods. And it’s a nonsurgical option for lipomas, non-cancerous tumors made of fat cells.

People often choose Kybella because it has a lower recovery time than surgery and therefore fewer risks. Kybella shots are also an option for people who aren't good candidates for facial plastic surgeries like liposuction or a neck lift.

Considering Kybella for chin fat reduction? Here are some factors to consider:

  • Are you troubled by persistent fat beneath your chin that diet and exercise haven't addressed?
  • Do you desire a non-surgical solution for reducing chin fat?
  • Are you in good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome?


If you answered yes to these questions, you might be a good candidate for Kybella injections!

However, it's always wise to consult with a medical expert for personalized advice.

How Does Kybella Work?

When injected into the fat below the skin, Kybella breaks down fat cells in that area. After the fat cells are destroyed, immune cells called macrophages come in. They clear away the remnants of the destroyed cells and promote new collagen through the recruitment of fibroblasts. A fibroblast is a type of cell that helps form connective tissue.

Once the fat cells are gone, the area under the chin will no longer store fat. Between that and the tissue tightening, the double chin should fade.

We'll work closely with you to develop a treatment plan that aligns with your individual needs and aesthetic aspirations.

Recovery and Outcomes After Kybella Treatment

The treatment is also called injection lipolysis, as it breaks down fat through an injection. Getting Kybella shots usually takes about 20 minutes. First, the health care worker numbs the area with ice or a numbing cream. Then, using a marker, they mark out the area they will treat under your chin using dots to form a grid-like pattern. They inject each dot from the same syringe of Kybella. The shots are usually about 1 centimeter apart. 

Kybella FAQs

How long does Kybella last?

Kybella results are typically permanent, as it destroys fat cells in the treated area. Once these fat cells are eliminated, they cannot store or accumulate fat again.

Are Kybella injections safe?

When administered by a trained medical professional, Kybella injections are generally safe. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, which BBH will discuss with you before treatment.

How much does Kybella cost?

The cost of Kybella treatment varies depending on factors such as the number of sessions needed and the size of the treatment area. It's best to consult with BBH for accurate pricing.

Can Kybella be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, Kybella can often be combined with other cosmetic procedures for enhanced results. BBH can advise you on suitable combinations based on your individual needs and goals.

Are Kybella injections painful?

Discomfort during Kybella injections is typically mild and temporary. BBH may use numbing cream or ice to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

How many sessions of Kybella will I need?

The number of Kybella sessions needed varies depending on factors such as the amount of chin fat and your desired results. Most patients require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart for optimal results.

When will I see results after Kybella injections?

Results from Kybella injections typically become noticeable within a few weeks to months after treatment as the fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body's natural processes. Full results are usually visible after several months.
