How long do results last from a Kybella treatment?

If you have a double chin and are looking for an alternative to surgery, ask your doctor about Kybella. Kybella is a non-invasive treatment for moderate to severe submental (under-chin) fat.  We know that with surgical options such as chin lipo the results are long term, but how long do results last from a Kybella treatment?


Kybella is derived from deoxycholic acid, which is a substance produced naturally by the body that helps with the absorption of fat. Kybella is a unique treatment, as it is currently the only non-surgical option available for fat beneath the chin.

A Kybella injection session takes about 15-20 minutes, and may require up to 6 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. The effects of Kybella are usually seen within 2 to 4 treatments, sometimes sooner.

Kybella Results

Kybella will reduce your double-chin, and improve the appearance of your neck and jawline. The results gained with Kybella are permanent, because the fat below your chin won’t return, and you can enjoy the permanent results of Kybella as long as you maintain a healthy weight (read more).

However, the contoured appearance of the neck may change if you gain a significant amount of weight. This could cause the fat cells that remain to get larger, and once again create some fullness in the chin.  But since there are fewer fat cells, the fat will be proportionately less than you had before.
