Put Your Best Chin Forward

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. If you are unhappy or self-conscious about fat under your chin, also known as submental fullness, and are looking for a non-invasive treatment option, KYBELLA may be for you.

How it Works

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that works to breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA destroys fat cells, and results in a noticeable reduction in submental fat.

What to Expect

Dr. Menezes will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA is right for you and customize your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your goals. KYBELLA can only be injected by trained healthcare professionals. During your appointment, Dr. Menezes will administer several small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections needed depends on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your goals. Temporary swelling, bruising, pain and redness are temporary side effects of KYBELLA.
