Does Kybella treatment for submental fat on the face/chin actually remove a SIGNIFICANT amount of fat from that area?

Kybella vs Coolmini vs Liposuction
There are multiple factors that go into answering this question...
If there is a lot of fat, liposuction is your best bet. This can be done in-office under local anesthesia.
If surgery is not something you are comfortable with, Coolsculpting would be your best bet financially... as long as the Coolsculpting applicator fits and you are okay with more time to see full results (than liposuction). If your jaw is too small or the amount of fat too little, the CoolMini may not fit.
Lastly, if you have a small amount of fat and the CoolMini applicator doesn't fit your face, I would go with Kybella. There is a significant recovery period with Kybella and the product is not cheap. That is why I reserve it for people with a small amount of submental fat.
All three will give you some skin tightening.

Kybella Really Effective for Right Patient
You pose a really good question. Kybella is definitely effective for the right patient. If you have a significant amount of fat, liposuction is going to be your best option. Kybella requires multiple treatments and it can simply become cost prohibitive to treat large volumes of fat. However, for those patients who have small pockets of fat and either don't want or can't have surgery, Kybella is a great option. It takes time (2-4 treatments spaced at least a month apart), but it does work, eliminating the fat cells for good.
Kybella Disolves Fat Under The Chin
Kybella is an FDA-approved fat-dissolving injectable composed of deoxycholic acid – a substance that is naturally produced by the body. It is used to dissolve moderate to severe submental fat deposits below the chin. I am not sure which photos you were looking at, but the results can be quite dramatic. Please take a look at the photos on my website. Consulting with a board-certified dermatologist will allow her to evaluate your double chin and decide if Kybella is right for you.

Coolmini or Kybella
Kybella is an amazing product to reduce fat under the chin. If there is a lot of fat on the area you can start with coolmini, which reduces 20%-25% of the fat on the area. Please see a board certified dermatologist to evaluate you. Best, Dr.Green.
Submental Chin Fat Treatments
The most common side effects of KYBELLA®include : swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. Similar to any other injectable treatment, this can easily be minimized by avoiding over-the-counter medications and supplements such as Ibuprofen ( Motrin or Advil), baby aspirin, fish oils, Vitamin E and green tea.
We also offer an analgesic for mild discomfort and swelling and send patients home with ice packs and a chin strap to improve the recovery time!

Kybella provides results after multiple sessions
Kybella often requires multiple treatment sessions for full results to be seen, but after all sessions have been completed most patients are happy with the results. If you are looking for significant results after a single session, liposuction may be a better option for you. I recommend visiting a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for an in-person consultation to see if Kybella would be able to get you the results you want.
Kybella for chin fat reduction
The key thing is to see a doctor who has experience in surgical and non-surgical fat reductions techniques as not all patients can be good candidates for Kybella and my benefit from NeckTite instead.
I hope that helps and best regards.
