KYBELLA® is a revolutionary treatment to reduce fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness. This fat can be hereditary, or it can be the result of age or excess weight. Regardless, it can add years and pounds to your face whether you want it to or not. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your facial profile without liposuction or surgery.



Ideal candidates for KYBELLA® are men and women who have excess fat under their chin. Candidates are also in good health and have realistic expectations of their results. During your consultation, Dr. Ariel Ostad will be able to determine if you are truly a candidate for KYBELLA®, and he will design a treatment plan based on the goals you wish to achieve. Depending on the amount of submental fat you have, Dr. Ostad may recommend three to four sessions for the best results.


KYBELLA® dissolves fat internally by utilizing its active ingredient: synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a natural molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. It is created naturally within the body in the digestive tract. KYBELLA® is a synthesized version of this same element. Precisely injected into targeted locations, it disrupts the walls of fat cells, causing them to spill their lipid content. The destroyed fat cells and residual deoxycholic acid are harmlessly cleared by the circulatory and lymphatic systems over time.


Because KYBELLA® is an injectable, non-surgical treatment, downtime is extremely minimal, and you can return to normal activities right after treatment. However, patients will experience some bruising, swelling, numbness, tenderness, redness, or firmness, in the injection site for a few weeks after the procedure, but it is temporary.


As a Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Ostad is committed to bringing the latest advances to his patients. Call to talk with him about double chin removal.


KYBELLA® offers fast results, and most patients see a noticeable reduction in fat under the chin within four to six weeks after their treatment has been performed. Touch-up treatments are not as necessary because the fat is removed for good; however, patients need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to enjoy long-lasting results.


What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved, safe, nonsurgical way to treat your double chin.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a treatment that is injected beneath the chin to destroy the fat cells. Your metabolism processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. The active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in our body that helps to break down fat.

Is there any downtime?

Because Kybella is an injectible, non-surgical treatment, downtime is extremely minimal. However, it’s good to note that you will experience some swelling in the site of injection for a few weeks, post procedure.

How many sessions do you recommend for best results?

Depending on the amount of submental fat you have, we recommend 3-4 sessions for the best results.

How long does the procedure take?

The average Kybella session will take 15-20 minutes.

Will my fat come back?

No. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good!
