Kybella is a noninvasive and permanent method to reduce fat underneath the chin. It contains deoxycholic acid, a natural substance produced by our bodies. The synthetic version of Kybella aids the breakdown of dietary fat. By injecting it under the chin, excess fat cells there are destroyed. These excess fat cells are flushed out through the lymphatic system and other natural detoxification processes.  


  • You are bothered by excess fat under your chin

  • Your chin fat makes you look heavier or older than you are

  • Your chin fat resists fat-loss efforts despite exercise & diet

  • You want to avoid surgical options

TREATMENT: The chin area will be numbed before Kybella is injected into specific treatment areas to maximize fat loss results. Superfine needles will be used so the injections feel just like a slight pinch. As Kybella is injected, you may experience a slight burning sensation but it is temporary. The entire session will last about an hour.

POST TREATMENT:  After the treatment, no special care is needed and most activities can be immediately resumed. Some side effects are mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. It will take about six weeks for the destroyed fat cells to exit your body. You can consult with Dr. Johar to determine if additional treatments would be necessary. Many people find that four sessions help them achieve their desired look, as Kybella destroys some, not all, fat cells underneath the chin. After this procedure, if a notable weight gain is present, then the remaining fat cells may plump up your chin.
