Ah, the double chin… Ruiner of selfies and self-confidence slayer. It seems like only yesterday when the only alternative for getting rid of that annoying fat pat under the chin was to go under the knife. Until now. Enter: Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for contouring and improving the appearance of submental fullness.
What Is Kybella
Kybella is a non-surgical treatment formulated from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring compound that helps your body absorb fat.
As an injectable treatment, this chemical compound destroys the outer membrane of fat cells, dissolving stubborn fat pockets and eventually flushing them out of the body. The results are permanent. Once Kybella has worked its fat-melting magic, the destroyed fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat in the same area ever again.
Is Kybella Right For Me?
There are a number of potential causes of the dreaded double chin, medically known as submental fullness. Aging and weight gain are the most obvious, but your tendency to accumulate chin and neck fat is also determined by your gene pool.
If you have a genetic predisposition to store chin fat, diet and exercise won’t help you eliminate it. Kybella is the only FDA-cleared treatment to melt away stubborn fat from under your chin without the need for liposuction. Ideal candidates for this life-changing procedure are adults 18 years and older who relate to one or more of the following concerns:
- Are self-conscious or embarrassed about submental fullness
- Feel that their double chin makes them look heavier or older than they actually are
- Can’t or don’t want to undergo surgery to correct their double chin

As Seen On
After determining your candidacy, your Dr. Patty Miami cosmetic surgeon will mark the treatment area with a dotted grid to help guide the injections. The number of sessions you need will be based on the treatment zone and the amount of fatty tissue that needs to be dissolved.
Then, your surgeon will apply local anesthesia or a topical numbing cream and inject the solution directly into the double chin or selected treatment area. The process takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Recovering From Kybella Injections
You can expect some moderate swelling right after your injections and for the next couple of days. After the third day, most of the swelling will be barely noticeable to others.
Over the following month, you may feel (but not see) small bumps under the skin of the treated area. This firmness signifies Kybella is working to dissolve the fat. You may experience some temporary numbness in the treated area, which typically resolves within 4 weeks.
How Much Does Kybella Treatment Cost?
The cost of Kybella in Miami is based on the number of vials used, and the average cost per vial ranges from $400 to $700. The amount of vials needed for your Kybella treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated and the extent of the correction.
Is It Permanent?
Yes! Kybella dissolves the membrane of fat cells, and once destroyed, they cannot grow back. Keep in mind, though, that if you gain weight, you will still accumulate fatty tissue, just in other areas of your face.
Are Kybella Injections Painful?
The target area will be numbed before applying the injections, but some patients report a mild burning sensation during and after treatment. You can expect mild to moderate swelling and bruising following your procedure, but it should resolve within 2-3 weeks.
Can Kybella Be Used On The Thighs?
Kybella was approved in 2015 for the treatment of submental fat. However, it can also be administered to successfully treat other areas of the body, including the thighs, arms, chest, and more.
