Studies have shown significant and permanent reduction in fat deposits under the chin.

Your provider in Leawood or Liberty will determine if you are a good candidate for the Kybella® treatment, and how many treatments will benefit you the most.
The affected areas are marked for precise injection purposes.
Kybella is injected into the affected area, which destroys fat cells and prevents the area from carrying fat cells in the future.
The client will receive post-care instructions and set up follow-up appointments/injections, if applicable.
Surgery used to be the only option to remove excess fat beneath the chin. Kybella®, however, offers a much less extreme treatment option. Through a series of small injections, our nurse injectors can contour and diminish a double chin (submental fullness).
The exact number of injections will vary based on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure typically takes about 45 minutes. Afterwards, there will be minor and temporary side effects.
The fat underneath the chin tends to not react well to diet and exercise. With Kybella, once these fat cells are destroyed further treatment is not expected once the desired aesthetic goal is reached.
