Can Kybella be done on someone who is skinny and doesn't quite have a double chin but just some unflattering fat down there?
Doctor Answers 22
Thank you for your question mghazi11. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. It is difficult to make an assessment without photographs. The double chin can be the result of age, weight gain, or genetics. In all of these cases Kybella may provide benefit.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Fat under chin
Yes, it sounds like you are the perfect candidate for kybella. It typically takes a few treatments but if there is a discrete pocket, it will, will the correct number of treatments and amount, completely go away so that your profile is just flat! Good luck and I hope this helps!
Kybella for Skinny People
You don't have to have an actual double chin to benefit from Kybella. Just a small amount of fat can be unflattering and is easily removed with one or two treatments of Kybella's deoxycholic acid – a natural substance found in human bile. The procedure takes less than 5 minutes in most cases. You will have some swelling afterward and it may take up to a month or more to appreciate your results, but my patients have been thrilled with the difference Kybella makes to their profiles. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to find out if you are a candidate for Kybella.

Kybella is useful for anyone who has excess fat under the chin that is above the platysma muscle. There are many overall healthy patients ( men and women) that are at an appropriate weight who are still bothered by some extra fat under their chin. Your best bet is a visit with a board certified plastic surgeon who understands the anatomy of the neck and can examine you and help determine whether you are a good candidate.
Kybella Treatments TOO MUCH or Just ENOUGH?
If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. Studies have shown that people are bothered just as much about under-the -chin- fat than they are about lines and wrinkles around their eyes and mouth!
The amount of Kybella injected is specific to each individual's need , so a trained professional can treat without over-estimating .
All the best,
