Kybella is a form of body contouring treatment known as “injection lipolysis.” These treatments use the synthetic bioidentical compound deoxycholic acid to break down fat. This compound mimics a type of bile acid the body naturally produces to break down and absorb fat in the intestines.
Kybella treatment involves a series of painless injections into submental fat (the fatty tissue under the chin). Once fat cells are destroyed, your body removes the waste, leaving your features looking more refined and giving you a slimmer appearance overall.
A stubborn pocket of fat under the chin and along the jawline can be the result of genetics, weight gain, or even poor posture. Extra chin fat can make you look older and heavier than you are. Whatever the cause, it can seem impervious to diet and exercise. But it’s is no match for Kybella.
Besides being a non-surgical alternative to chin liposuction, there is little to no downtime necessary after Kybella treatment. You can get right back to normal activities immediately after your appointment.
Kybella was the first and only injectable approved by the FDA as safe and effective for under-chin fat. Kybella treatment can reduce fat by as much as twenty to thirty percent with a single treatment. More than 82 percent of patients reported significantly improved satisfaction with their appearance in clinical trials.
Kybella works as a subtle yet effective way to look and feel better without dramatic changes or the telltale signs of more invasive procedures. Patients who have it done are happy to lose the extra chin fat and feel better about their appearance. Trimming up that excess chin fat not only slims the face, but it can even help you look younger!
Kybella is FDA-approved for treating excess fat under the jaw, commonly known as “double chin.” It is ideal for patients who want to remove fat without undergoing more invasive procedures like liposuction. Because it only relies on injection techniques, there is no need for sedation, it is relatively pain-free, and recovery time is minimal.
Patients who respond best to injection lipolysis procedures are typically in good health and have good skin elasticity. People with poor skin tone or loose skin may not see the results they’re looking for, so Kybella may not be the best answer in those cases. However, our team offers multiple solutions for this problem and can help you find a way to treat your double chin! During your consultation, your medical aesthetic provider will discuss your goals and current medical condition with you to help determine if Kybella is right for you. We advise that you consult with your primary care physician before undergoing any elective procedure.
On the day of your treatment, your cosmetic care professional will begin by cleaning your skin and applying a local anesthetic to the targeted area.
As this takes effect, they will carefully mark out a grid pattern as a guide for the injections based on your personal treatment plan. Once we prepare your skin, our trained providers will precisely inject the Kybella compound into the fat deposits, closely following the prescribed pattern. This technique results in a balanced, even distribution of the effects and maximizes your chance for optimal results.
One Kybella treatment takes 15 to 20 minutes.
After your Kybella treatment is complete, you should be able to return to your routine immediately. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection sites. Any discomfort or pain is generally mild. Some patients feel areas of hardness, but these almost always dissipate over time. Serious side effects are extremely rare, but this is why it is so important to have your Kybella treatment performed by the cosmetic surgery experts at Marina MedSpa.
The treated area may appear fuller in the first few weeks post-treatment, which is normal and will resolve as your body eliminates the treated fat. Many patients choose to undergo at least two treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Your treatment schedule will be determined during your consultation, and we always consider your lifestyle to ensure the plan works for you. Results usually become visible after about eight weeks after their final procedure. Most patients see long-lasting reductions in submental fat (provided they maintain proper diet and exercise).
Kybella is best for people over 18 with good skin tone who have mild to moderate chin fat. If you are bothered by excess fat under your chin and want to remove it permanently, you are likely a good candidate for Kybella.
We’re excited to help you explore the possibilities Kybella may hold for you.

Kybella emulsifies fat cells, breaking them down into waste that the body then removes as waste.
Fat cells destroyed through Kybella treatment do not grow back. Results are long-lasting for patients who maintain a normal weight and keep new fat from building up under the chin.
Currently, Kybella is only approved for the reduction of fat under the chin.
The cost for Kybella treatment depends on the person, based on how many injections and treatment sessions are needed. We can get a good sense of how many vials are needed during a consultation and an assessment of how much fat needs to be removed to get the look you want. Once we know that information, we can give you an accurate quote on the price.
CoolSculpting is another non-invasive option for getting rid of chin fat. Like Kybella, CoolSculpting works by breaking down fat cells. But instead of using a compound that breaks down fatty cells, CoolSculpting does it with precisely applied cold temperatures.
CoolSculpting is approved for reducing fat on several areas of the body, including submental fat. Kybella, however, is only approved for reducing submental fat.
The best way to find out what fat-reducing option would work best for you is to schedule a consultation today at Marina MedSpa, where we can assess your unique situation and aesthetic desires.
