Kybella is very effective at permanently removing fat cells from under the chin. However, it is not intended to remove every fat cell. The fat cells that remain can grow after weight gain, but the change would likely be less than after no Kybella treatment.
Regarding cheek fat/cheek reduction, it would be best to consult with a plastic surgeon regarding what options might be effective. Typically CoolSculpting and the mini-applicators are used for removal of body fat from the neck and below. There is a CoolSculpting applicator to help with the neck/double-chin area but not specifically for the cheeks.
Weight gain can
always create the appearance of a double chin, even after Kybella
injections. Kybella permanently targets
some localized fatty deposits in the chin and neck, but does not target all of
them. Therefore, fat cells that remain
underneath the neck muscles may grow and expand with weight gain.
Fat cells that remain after Kybella treatments are the only ones that will enlarge with weight gain since treated areas destroy fat permanently.
KYBELLA® is used to improve the appearance and
profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin --often referred to as a
“double chin . Since the results are permanent, fat will not return to the treated areas, regardless of weight gain.

Kybella is an FDA approved treatment to permanently reduce the fat in the area under the chin to reduce your double chin. However, if you gain weight, you can gain weight in the same area under the chin and you may need to get treated with Kybella again. It is best to consult with a board certified physician with experience with Kybella and other cosmetic injections for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green
Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment that permanently reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area. There will be some fat cells remaining after a series of Kybella treatments. Therefore, if you gain a weight, you may gain in the treated area. You would likely not gain as much as if you had never had Kybella, but you can gain some.
Weight gain always brings the risk of increased submental fullness, even after Kybella injections. Kybella targets some, but not all, localized fatty deposits in the chin and neck, but remaining fat cells have the potential to grow and expand with weight gain.
Kybella permanently destroys fat cells. It does this in a gradual fashion and leaves a natural appearing neck and chin profile. It does not get rid of every single fat cell or leave areas that are well-demarcated and depressed. Therefore, when you gain weight, you gain weight in a naturally-appearing distribution. The residual fat cells will get larger with fat as the rest of your body does.
