Get rid of that double chin: Here's how Kybella works

How often do you get the chance to permanently customize your physical appearance? Eating well and exercising can improve how you feel about your body overall, but all that work to lose weight doesn’t necessarily apply to the fat under your chin.


Double chins can make anyone feel self-conscious, especially if you’re losing weight and making progress in every area of the body except around your face. After significant weight loss, it’s common to have that double chin sticking around while the rest of your body got the message. However, Kybella gives you the freedom to melt away fat and erase that double chin once and for all.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is an injectable treatment that safely removes fat around the chin. Its active ingredient is called deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down fats.This treatment is more effective than simply losing weight because Kybella permanently destroys fat cells rather than merely shrinking them.


Once destroyed, these cells cannot store fat in the future, so you won’t need more treatments down the road once you finish the sessions your medical provider has planned with you.

What to expect during treatment

A healthcare specialist will first examine your chin to determine if Kybella will effectively reshape your chin profile.The number of treatments required depends on each person’s unique needs and varies from patient to patient. Your treatment plan is based upon both the amount of fat under the chin and which areas are most affected. Your medical provider will be able to make that decision after speaking with you about your aesthetic goals.


Each treatment is administered at least one month apart, with no more than 6 treatments per patient. The injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes with a multiple small injections per treatment session.  After receiving a Kybella treatment, it’s normal to experience swelling, bruising or numbness under the chin.


Advantages of Kybella

Kybella is a permanent solution to finally getting rid of your double chin without undergoing costly surgery or long recovery times. You have the power to transform how you present yourself to the world, so why not show off the best version of you?


If you’re unhappy looking in the mirror or at photos of yourself because of a double chin that just won’t disappear no matter what you do, Kybella may be the right choice for you. Call the weight loss professionals at Northwest Weight Loss Surgery to learn more and schedule a consultation.
