What Is Submental Fullness?

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away and can make you look older and heavier than you actually are.

KYBELLA® is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults.

Is KYBELLA® Right for Me?

KYBELLA® is often the best option for people who are bothered by the appearance of their double chin but are not comfortable with surgical procedures like liposuction. Ideal KYBELLA® candidates have realistic expectations and are in good overall health. Looking over KYBELLA® before and after photos helps to develop one’s expectations.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

  • You’re bothered by submental fullness
  • Surgery is not an option for you
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away

How KYBELLA® Works

KYBELLA® is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes lysis of adipocytes, the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

KYBELLA® treatment receives a 79% high satisfaction rate. Patients treated with KYBELLA® reported satisfaction in the appearance of their face and chin. After being treated with KYBELLA®, patients reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger, based on their chin profile, as well as feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight, and less bothered by submental fullness.

How Is KYBELLA® Administered?

KYBELLA® is typically given in a 15 – 20 minute in-office treatment session. Our nurse injector gives a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session. Together we decide the treatment plan that’s right for you.

Is There Downtime?

There is no downtime or recovery time needed with KYBELLA®. You are able to return to work after your treatment. There may be some swelling and tenderness; however, this will not keep you from doing your day-to-day activities.


The cost of KYBELLA® is not the same from med spa to med spa. The price of the treatment will depend on the number of treatments required.
