KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Each KYBELLA®treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, at least 3 treatments and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. These side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.

Even though I had skinny figure, there was always stubborn fat under my chin just like Mom, I think it’s like genetic? Anyway, Dr. Choi recommended Kybella to me and I had 3 sessions 4 weeks apart. My first injection experience was throbbing pain after the treatment. It lasted the whole night and got little better the next day. It started to swell the triple size than before, and I felt numbness after 3-4 day and the swelling lasted about 10 days. From the 2nd injection, pain and the swelling were lot less than before and even after the 3rd injection, it got lot less. Dr. Choi took photos of me exactly 1 month after the 3rd injection and the result was amazing. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends who is willing to take the healing process as I experienced. Ok, this was back in 2018, which was 5 years ago. I am maintaining almost same result but with little bit of sagging skin under the chin due to aging. Now I am on another journey of lifting treatment and the story will continue soon so stay tuned for the update!
Many Thanks to Dr. Choi for everything he has done for me to maintaining my youth and beauty!
