Yes! There are nonsurgical options to treat double chins
Kybella would be a great, non-invasive option for you as it is the first FDA-approved injectable medication for the elimination of submental fat. Treatments are performed in 6 week intervals, and most patients will need 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired results.
Ultimately if you are interested in improving the appearance of your chin and neck, please consult with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to determine a treatment plan that will provide you with the best results.
I hope this answer is helpful! Best of luck.

Double Chin Treatment
Thanks for your question and photo. You look like a good candidate for Kybella, which is an FDA approved injectable medication for use in the elimination of submental fat. You will need several treatments, usually done 6 weeks apart. Most patients do need 2-3 treatments to get to their best result. However, this is a costly route, but patients do seem to be pleased with their results and feel it is well worth it. Best of luck.
Non Surgical Treatment for Neck Improvement
Here is some general information however on non surgical options:
- Amount of excess fat typically found beneath the chin, and in the upper neck. Kybella injections can improve this.
- Presence of Significant (Platysmal) Banding – this requires bringing the muscles together in the upper/mid neck to a more youthful position and occasionally their release. This procedure is called a platysmaplasty or platysma plication. Mild banding can be treated non- surgically with Botox or Dysport but this requires injections 3-4 times a year for maintenance.
- Amount of excess/redundant skin (cutis laxa) and condition of your skin. Mild to minimal skin tightening using non-surgical means like the Sciton Laser SkinTyte procedure, Ultherapy or Thermage could also be considered. My personal preference for non-surgical skin tightening of the neck is the Sciton Laser BBL SkinTyte® procedure as there is no down time, more comfortable procdure, is effective and is a more targeted treatment.
- Chin deficiency. If you have a weak chin then you will not have adequate chin support to your neckline skin which affects your entire neck line. Sometimes especially in younger individuals this is all that is required and this can be done in the office under local anesthesia. There are a number of different sizes and shapes and your plastic surgeon will pick the optimal one for you. Non surgical options include injectable fillers but these are only temporary and have to be repeated.

A consultation would allow a doctor to customize your treatment plan.
