Many people are insecure about their double chin or the excess fat underneath their chin. Exercise and losing weight can possibly reduce the appearance of your double chin but will never truly destroy the fat cells. If you have a double chin or excess chin fat, you may benefit from Kybella®.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable cosmetic treatment that gets rid of the excess fat underneath your chin. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that, when injected underneath the chin, permanently destroys the excess fat cells and improves your profile.
Dr. Schalit will typically recommend two to three Kybella® treatments to guarantee optimal results. Prior to your treatment, you will be numbed to prevent you from experiencing any discomfort or pain. Your Kybella® treatments will take 5-10 minutes to complete, and once you have completed all of your treatments, you will notice a slimmer profile. However, your final results will become apparent in a month.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® destroys the excess fat underneath your chin, and its other benefits include:
- Permanent results
- Quick, simple treatment
- Minimally invasive
- Virtually pain-free
How Much is Kybella®?
According to Healthline, the average cost of a Kybella® treatment is between $1,200 and $1,800. The total cost of Kybella® will depend on multiple factors, such as the experience of your practitioner, your geographic location, and the number of Kybella® sessions you will need to achieve your desired results. Because Kybella® is a cosmetic treatment, medical insurance will not typically cover the cost of treatments.

Kybella® is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime, so after your treatment, you are free to return to your daily activities.

Dr. Schalit will give you specific post-care instructions, such as icing your neck and chin and avoiding laying down for up to four hours after your procedure.
