Kybella – Chin Fat Reduction

Conveniently located to serve Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati and Gallia County


If you’re interested in a non-surgical treatment designed to reduce unwanted fat beneath the chin (submental fat), KYBELLA® in Columbus may be right for you. KYBELLA® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment that eliminates fat cells and ultimately improves your profile.

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is an injectable therapy used by adults to improve the appearance and profile of the lower chin by reducing moderate to severe fat often referred to as a “double chin.”

This submental fat can be left behind after weight fluctuations caused by lifestyle changes, genetics, aging, hormone imbalances, and other factors. However, even after adjusting their diet and exercise habits, many patients notice that their double chin hasn’t gone away.

That is because the body can’t actually eliminate fat cells on its own, although it can add more during weight gain. When the fat cells shrink as you return to a healthy BMI, you’re left with that larger quantity of cells, leading to a double chin.

The deoxycholic acid in Kybella® is designed to kill these unwanted submental fat cells without affecting the surrounding tissue. This allows them to be gradually metabolized and eliminated by the body, improving the contours of the chin for a smoother, tighter appearance.

Ideal Candidates for KYBELLA® Injections

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

  • You want to minimize or reduce fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • You feel the extra submental fat makes you look older or heavier than you would like or does a disservice to your overall facial contours.
  • You are not interested in having surgery or dealing with a prolonged recovery time.
  • Diet and exercise alone has failed to adequately improve the chin region.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, a board-certified plastic surgeon at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Dayton will examine your chin area, as well as review your medical history and allergy contraindications. You will discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations with them, which will help them formulate a proper treatment plan to address your concerns.

In some cases, a chin augmentation, facelift, or other type of plastic surgery might be more appropriate to your aesthetic needs. But if you are a candidate for Kybella®, it may not be the only non-surgical injectable therapy you could benefit from. For example, countless patients have also enjoyed the hydrating properties of Juvederm® and reduced dynamic lines from Botox®.

The Procedure

Your KYBELLA® treatment will be administered via a series of small injections into the submental area. Only a trained expert should perform the procedure. The number of injections will vary depending on the desired results and the amount of fat that needs to be addressed.

The whole procedure will take about 15 to 20 minutes. You may need additional treatment sessions in order to achieve the chin profile you want.


There is no significant downtime or recovery period after your injections. You can go back to your normal routine a few days after your KYBELLA® treatments.

Expect temporary swelling, bruising, and/or numbness in the chin area. Side effects will subside in about two weeks or less.

How much do KYBELLA® Injections Cost?

KYBELLA® treatment varies in cost from one patient to another, because the procedure is tailored for each person’s individual case. The price will be impacted by the number of injections and treatment sessions needed to achieve your desired results.
