If you’re interested in a non-surgical way to reduce fullness beneath your chin, Kybella® may be right for you. Kybella® is a first-of-its-kind, FDA-approved injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness (double chin) that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

Before starting treatment, Dr. Yearsley will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if Kybella® is right for you. Then, he will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

Since everyone’s chin profile is different and unique, the number of treatment sessions will vary. Each Kybella® treatment session is given at least one month apart, and you should not receive more than six treatments.

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.

You should not receive Kybella® if you have an infection in the treatment area. Before receiving Kybella®, tell Dr. Yearsley about all of your medical conditions and medications that you take.
