Reduce Unwanted Chin Fat Without Surgery

By: Dr. Jeffrey Hsu


Some people are genetically predisposed to store more fat beneath the chin, regardless of their body composition. If you have a double chin or are unhappy with your appearance in Naperville, IL, KYBELLA can improve your profile without invasive measures like surgery.

Many people are self-conscious about their chin and would do anything to reduce fat in this visible area. Call now to meet with fellowship-trained, board-certified dermatologist Jeffrey T. S. Hsu, MD, FAAD and discuss the possibility of KYBELLA injections. Our professionals at Oak Dermatology understand what it takes to create a slimmer facial profile.

What causes excess chin fat?

There are several reasons why someone might develop a double chin, including:

  • Genetics: Some people are more prone to storing fat in this area due to genes.
  • Weight changes: Even small fat deposits are distributed unevenly throughout your body during weight fluctuations.
  • Age: Natural age can cause small fat pockets to accumulate beneath the chin over time.

Many of these factors are out of our control, but that doesn't mean you have to live with a double chin. There are ways to improve your appearance, and KYBELLA is proven to be one of the most effective fat removal treatments available.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is made of a synthetic kind of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally and helps your body break down and absorb fats. When carefully administered into the area beneath your chin, KYBELLA destroys the fat cells and causes them to be removed over time.

Why not liposuction or surgery?

Liposuction removes excess fat cells from the body through incisions and a suction process. However, surgery can be invasive and comes with risks like infection and scarring. Additionally, not everyone is ready or qualified for surgery – in this case, KYBELLA may be a better alternative for fat removal.

How does treatment work at Oak Dermatology?

What do KYBELLA results look like? Are they natural?

Patients will see a visible reduction in their double chin after fat removal treatment. These results are long-lasting if patients do not experience any significant weight fluctuations.
