Kybella is a non-surgical injectable for reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a "double chin." The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. Using Kybella for treatment on areas other than the double chin is not approved or recommended. The treatment is called Belkyra in Canada, Australia, and U.K.

Thin 29 year old hoping to get rid of chin fat :)

Hi! I have spent hours researching what to do about the small amount of fat under my chin, but am currently too scared to do anything drastic. I contemplated CoolSculpt and Kybella for a long time, ultimately choosing Kybella because some had mentioned it seems to have more tightening effects.... READ MORE

Had kybella 4 days a go. Right now I feel like I look worse than prior to the procedure. This was expected though. I had the bullfrog neck the next day. It managed the worst of it with ice packs. I had 2 vials to start and am definitely going to do 2 more in 8 weeks. Then my doc and I will... READ MORE

I've referenced this site so many times for procedures I have done or wanted to do that I felt it was time to give back and write my own review.

My Doctor Encouraged Kybella over Chin Lipo. San Antonio, TX

I booked a consultation for Smart Lipo on my chin. When doing my research, Chin Lipo should have been about $2,000 and only a week of downtime. I have received 1 round of Kybella for $1,000.00.

Really much easier than I anticipated. I felt nervous after reading general Kybella reviews about pain and swelling, but getting it done was incredibly easy and virtually pain free.
