What is KYBELLA Treatment?
KYBELLA is a medication prescribed by your doctor or plastic surgeon to eliminate excess fat beneath the chin. It’s an injection of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Deoxycholic acid assists the body with breaking down and absorbing dietary fat.
Technically referred to as submental fat and often called a “double chin” by patients, excess fat under the chin can have many causes. In some people, submental fat is present throughout their lives. For others, it only occurs in older age.
Some of the leading causes of submental fat under the chin include:
- Weight gain
- Genetic factors
How do KYBELLA injections work?
Deoxycholic acid is a substance found in the body that helps break down fat. When injected beneath the chin, it targets and breaks down submental fat at the injection site to help the body naturally get rid of it. Once fat cells are broken down and absorbed by the body, they can no longer store fat. This process minimizes the presence of under-chin fat. Your doctor may advise multiple treatments to reach your desired results. At least one month should separate each treatment, and you shouldn’t undergo more than six treatments in total.

Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa Reviews
Dr.Watt is the most amazing doctor and listens to what u want and makes ur dreams comes true, along with the sweetest, most caring, professional staff!!! i’m glad I went with Watt Plastic surgery. Best Decision I’ve ever made!!! Run don’t walk to see him!
Dr Watt and his team were amazing! They made me feel extremely safe and comfortable. I would never go anywhere else!
YeH absolute best! I saw dr watt for surgery and the results were exactly what I wanted. I also see Jaime for injectables and she is the first and only injector to ever get my lips right. She always nails my Botox too. I’m very happy with the services, the staff, and the overall vibe of the office and I will never go anywhere else for injections or surgery ◡̈
I came to Dr. Watt 6 months ago looking for a BA before my wedding. I am now 4 months post-op and it’s 10 days before my wedding- I am so in love with my results and cannot wait to live in my bikinis during our honeymoon! Dr. Watt and his staff have been absolutely amazing! I didn’t mind the 2 hour drive to his office because every interaction was comfortable and informative, from the initial phone call to all the post-op appointments. I also got my lips done with Megan recently and she was so gentle and friendly. I wish I was in the market for another procedure just so I could continue seeing them! If I ever decide to upgrade my BA, there is no doubt I’ll be heading to Dr. Watt!
I’ve had a lot of friends go to Dr Watt for their augmentations and mommy makeovers. I followed his IG for a while and knew he was the best around. I did a few small medical procedures with him and had the best experience from start to finish. From the consultation, throughout the surgery, and even thru recovery. So when I finally decided to pull the trigger on my own augmentation, I didn’t even consider going to anyone else. I knew I wanted to go to Doctor Watt, no matter the price. I knew he would do it right and that I wouldn’t have to ever be concerned about complications. I couldn’t be happier with my results and recovery time. The end product looks exactly like the inspiration photos I provided. He truly is the best at what he does and I’m so thankful to have had the best experience with Dr Watt.

How does KYBELLA work?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA, works to break down and destroy fat cells in the submental area. After the fat cells are eliminated, these cells cannot regenerate. Therefore, additional treatments shouldn't be necessary as soon as you have reached your desired outcome. However, the remaining cells can still grow in size, that is why it's important to maintain a healthy weight to preserve your results.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?
No, it cannot. Currently, KYBELLA may only be used to treat the area below the chin to effectively reduce the appearance of a double chin. KYBELLA hasn't been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for any other areas of the face or body.
Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?
There are a few factors that could make you ineligible to receive a KYBELLA treatment. You must be at least 18 years old, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you should not have any infection in or around the treatment site. Before your treatment begins, you are encouraged to be open about your medical history and health concerns with your injector so that they can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
In your initial consultation, a customized treatment plan will be developed to address your needs and cosmetic goals. Usually, patients receive between two and four KYBELLA treatments before achieving their goals. KYBELLA appointments must also be spaced about 30 days apart. You should not get any more than six injections in total.
