Kybella®

Ready to get rid of that dreaded double chin? Kybella® is the first and currently only injectable that is proven to reduce or even remove a “double chin” or excess under chin fat, drastically improving your appearance.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella LogoThe main active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps to break down fat and fatty deposits. When injected in a specific spot, such as the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells and permanently reduces the look of under-the-chin fat. Kybella is a safe and easy way to permanently remove a double chin.

How does the treatment work?

After Dr. Zelinger assesses your problem area to decide on the best course of treatment, a typical Kybella session takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. The exact number of treatments you may need depends on how much fat is stored beneath the chin, as well as your personal aesthetic goals for your appearance. How much or how little is up to you. You will need no more than six treatments total, and treatments are given at least one month apart. After your treatment, you may experience some swelling or bruising beneath the chin because of the injection site.
