Is KYBELLA® Right for Me?

KYBELLA® is a minimally-invasive injectable treatment that kills fat cells right at the source, giving you a noticeably more sculpted profile. Chin fat, also known as submental fullness, can make you appear older or heavier than you are, even if you eat right and exercise regularly.

Houston KYBELLA® – Chin Fat Reduction

A double chin can be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging. You might have had this fullness under your chin for your whole life, or it might have developed recently. A double chin is bothering to most people who have one. A survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found that 67% of people with fat under their chin consider it bothersome.

KYBELLA® is an injectable solution that reduces the fat under your chin without the risk or invasiveness of surgery. It is a safe, nonsurgical alternative to getting a more youthful, shapely look with little recovery time and effective results. Treatment works by destroying the accumulated fat cells under your chin, permanently.

During the initial consultation, your facial shape and overall health will be examined to see if you are a good candidate. Goals are discussed, and the procedure is planned. Because each patient has a unique chin and desired results, every ® treatment is customized to fit your needs.

Procedural Steps
