Eliminate Your Double Chin with KYBELLA®

Excess skin and fat underneath the chin can make even young, healthy patients appear overweight and older. A double chin can affect your self-confidence and may be difficult to address with natural diet and exercise. KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that is made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body,  that can effectively break down fat cells in the targeted area.  Dr. John F. Zavell can administer KYBELLA to melt stubborn fat deposits, creating a defined profile and more youthful-looking appearance at our Toledo, OHoffice.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is a popular injectable treatment that is composed of deoxycholic acid which naturally eliminates fat. This treatment is typically used to address stubborn chin fat, significantly reducing the appearance of a double chin. 


KYBELLA provides several benefits, including:

  • Natural-looking results
  • More defined jawline and a slimmer neck
  • Healthy, youthful appearance
  • Balanced, symmetrical facial features

Additionally, if you are able to maintain a stable weight, you can enjoy long-term results. 

Who is a Candidate for KYBELLA?

If diet and exercise have not been successful at eliminating your double chin, you may benefit from this treatment, especially if you are hoping to avoid undergoing surgery. It should be noted that KYBELLA is only effective for destroying fat and cannot address excess skin. During your initial consultation, Dr. Zavell will evaluate medical history to determine your eligibility. However, you should also inform him if you:

  • Have difficulty swallowing
  • Are pregnant or nursing
  • Have a bleeding disorder
  • Have previously undergone facial cosmetic surgery
  • Plan to undergo facial cosmetic surgery in the future
  • Have any medical conditions that affect the neck area

Dr. Zavell always prioritizes patient safety and will consider these factors in addition to your goals when providing treatment recommendations.

What to Expect

Typically, two to four treatment sessions are required. However, this will depend on the amount of excess fat. 

During the Procedure

Generally, treatments are performed about one month apart. Dr. Zavell can administer KYBELLA in about 20 minutes at our office. During treatment, the solution is injected directly into the fat beneath the chin.

After Treatment

While slight swelling, redness, or bruising may occur after the injection, patients typically experience little to no discomfort. Results will generally become apparent approximately 48 hours after the procedure. Because this treatment is non-surgical, you can resume your normal routines immediately following your appointment.
