How Kybella Works

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again. Your extra chin is essentially gone for good.

A typical Kybella treatment takes 30 minutes. There will be some swelling that increases and persists for approximately 5-7 days. There may be some bruising, numbness and soreness in the treated area. However, those side effects are generally only temporary and disappear within a week. Most patients see amazing results after two to six sessions, which are spaced about a month apart.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Kybella is not a substitute for surgery. It will not eliminate excess skin, jowls, or neck bands. In fact, those may be more noticeable after a Kybella treatment, which is why it is so important to consult with a facial plastic surgeon prior to your treatment.

The ideal candidates for Kybella have healthy, elastic skin that will “bounce” back after the injection, and a noticeable bulge in the chin area that they’d like to get rid of. Only an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Ahn, can determine if you are a candidate for a double chin treatment during your consultation at our facility.

The medical staff at Aesthetic Wellness Center will determine if you are a candidate for a Kybella treatment during your consultation.


When you have your Kybella treatment, the affected fat cells will be permanently destroyed, eliminating your double chin. Your results are, in fact, permanent as long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise.
