Solutions for Double Chin

Kybella Thousand Oaks, CA

Double chins can negatively affect one’s self-esteem. Not only do they age you, but they can also ruin what was once a contoured, sleek profile and make you look heavier than you really are. What makes things worse is that the chin and jawline are among the most challenging areas to reach with diet and exercise alone due to hormones, genetics, weight fluctuation, and habits. If you suffer from a submental fullness, or a double chin, for a long time, then you know what it’s like to have tried countless topical creams, neck exercises, and even strange foreign contraptions, only to realize that these treatments are completely ineffective.

How Do Kybella Treatments Work?

In the past, the only way to effectively remove a double chin was through a neck lift or liposuction. While these plastic surgery procedures are effective, the risks and downtime often deter patients. For patients seeking a non-surgical method to remove submental fullness, Kybella is the first-ever FDA-approved completely non-surgical option to trim and dramatically improve the appearance of submental fullness.

Kybella has been specifically created to target the neck and chin of every patient. Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that the body produces naturally to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When delivered into targeted locations, such as beneath the chin, the neck, and the jawline, this main ingredient breaks apart excess fat. The body will naturally dispose of these damaged fat cells through waste, leading to fewer living fat cells and a more contoured jawline.

What is “Submental Fullness”?

Commonly referred to as the dreaded “double chin,” submental fullness is an aesthetic concern that develops amongst both men and women. While the condition isn’t considered a medical concern, the development of a double chin can harm a patient’s self-confidence. According to a recent survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, around 67% of people reported that the thing they dislike the most about their appearance is their double chin.

When extra skin is combined with submental fullness, this can detract from a balanced face symmetry, leaving an individual with features that can make them look older and heavier than they actually are. Another issue people find is that in many cases, diet and exercise will not sufficiently reduce submental fullness. Even with the most dedicated exercise and diet, individuals cannot remove their double chin altogether. Certain factors such as genetics, aging, and weight gain can contribute to the development of a double chin. Still, nothing should keep you from feeling your absolute best and achieving your desired facial aesthetic.


Kybella Treatments in Thousand Oaks, CA

At Aesthetically Yours, our team, led by Dr. M. Asif Taqi, has provided countless patients with this innovative treatment to help remove their double chin. Your Kybella® treatment starts with a thorough consultation where we will build a customized treatment plan specifically for you. The amount of skin laxity in the area and the submental condition will determine exactly how many treatments of Kybella will help you effectively reach your goals. Additional treatments may be necessary and are typically spaced out in one-month intervals.

During your Kybella treatment, the injectable is delivered to subcutaneous fat below the chin. Once placed, the deoxycholic acid breaks down and destroys the stubborn fat. When the fat cells creating the double chin have broken down, they can no longer store fatty tissue anymore. With nowhere to go, the body metabolizes the dissolved fat and passes it naturally through the body’s waste.

Kybella treatments can be quick, lasting about 15 to 30 minutes. During the weeks that follow your double chin removal treatment, you’ll begin to notice the gradual lifting and firming of the chin.

Recovery From Kybella Injections

Since Kybella is entirely non-surgical, there is no painful recovery or designated healing time from incisions, sutures, or heavy trauma to the skin. In fact, Kybella is often affectionally referred to as the “lunchtime treatment” because patients can have their appointment and be back at their office or daily activities immediately after. Some patients have reported side effects such as swelling, bruising, and tenderness near or around the injection site, but these symptoms dissipate 48 hours after your initial treatment.

Candidates for Kybella

Patients who are bothered by the submental fullness but would like to have it removed without surgery are the perfect candidate for Kybella injections. Kybella works on all skin tones and skin types and is best for patients over 18. Patients with active infections, bleeding disorders, or severe medical conditions should not receive Kybella.

Kybella FAQs

One of the most significant benefits of Kybella injections is that the fat removal results of the treatment will last for a lifetime. The deoxycholic acid in the injectable solution destroys a large percentage of the fat cells in the treatment area, and overtime, your lymphatic system flushes out the dead fat cells so that they are gone for good.

CoolSculpting uses an applicator that freezes unwanted fat cells. Kybella is injected directly into the fat pad under your chin and jawline. The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is naturally occurring in our bodies and aids in the breakdown and absorption of the fat we consume in our foods. Both CoolSculpting and Kybella are effective treatment options with similar outcomes. What sets Kybella slightly apart is that Kybella gives your injection specialist more freedom to customize your treatment by injecting Kybella right where you need it most.

Every patient is different, but in general, most patients start to see results after just one Kybella treatment. Most patients, however, see the full potential of Kybella results after having up to six sessions for best results, especially if they have thicker submental fat tissue.

Deoxycholic acid provides permanent results as destroyed fat cells are not able to come back once destroyed. However, it’s not able to eliminate every fat cell. If you gain weight after your Kybella injections, there is a chance that these cells will grow. Therefore, it’s important for a patient to concentrate on following a healthy diet and exercise routine to maintain their overall body weight and Kybella results.


Before your Kybella appointment, Dr. Taqi can inject a local anesthetic to ensure that the area being treated is numb. Once the area is properly anesthetized, you won’t be able to feel the needle or solution being injected into your chin area. A few days after there may be some swelling and bruising around the injection site, but these common side effects shouldn’t be painful and will dissipate after a few days.

Every patient is different; therefore, Dr. Taqi will create a tailored treatment plan based on your unique chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions spaced out at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results after just 2 to 4 Kybella treatments.
