Kybella Offers Nonsurgical Approach to Fighting Chin Fat

by Aymee Wilson, Owner & Founder, Wilson Aesthetics

In pursuing a slimmer, more defined jawline, many individuals are turning to cosmetic procedures like Kybella injections to address stubborn chin fat. This treatment offers practical solutions for reducing submental (under-chin) fat.

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment specifically designed to target and reduce excess fat beneath the chin. The main component is deoxycholic acid, which the body produces naturally and helps with food fat absorption and digestion.

Submental fullness gradually decreases as a result of Kybella’s fat-cell-destroying injections into the submental fat beneath the chin.

How Does Kybella Work?

A series of Kybella injections are injected directly into the treatment area. Depending on the individual’s goals and the quantity of fat being treated, different injections and sessions may be needed.

A more defined jawline results from the body’s natural processing and removal of the damaged fat cells throughout the healing process.


Nonsurgical: Patients can achieve a more contoured jawline without undergoing invasive procedures like liposuction.

Convenience: This process is relatively quick, often taking fewer than 30 minutes per session.

Customizable results: Kybella treatments are tailored to each patient’s individual needs. Numerous treatments may be required, depending on the degree of submental fat and the intended outcome.

Minimal downtime: Injections often require less recovery time than surgery. After treatment, most patients can quickly return to their regular activities, but some temporary bruising and swelling may happen.

Long-lasting results: The treatment destroys the targeted fat cells, and they usually do not recover.

Improved self-esteem: Having less of a double chin might boost one’s self-esteem and contentment with one’s look.

Kybella is an effective method for reducing chin fat and enhancing facial contours for a
nonsurgical approach and gradual results. As always, schedule a consultation with a licensed provider to see if this is the right treatment for you to ensure you are getting your desired results.
