Cosmetic Surgery Q & A

What is submental fullness?

Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat under the chin, also known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life or something that has developed over the years as you age or gain weight.

What is KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection 10 mg/mL?

KYBELLA is a nonsurgical way of reducing fullness below the chin.KYBELLA is an injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness, or double chin, that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Synthetic deoxycholic is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When KYBELLA is injected into the fat under the chin, it destroys fat cells. These fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat once they’re destroyed, which results in a noticeable reduction in fullness below the chin.
