Whether it’s caused by genetics, age, or weight gain, a double chin can cause patients to feel insecure about themselves. WVU Medicine offers the only FDA-approved injectable treatment, KYBELLA®, to reduce moderate to severe fat below the chin or “double chin.â€
KYBELLA® works by destroying fat cells resulting in a visibly improved chin profile. Patients may experience some temporary side effects, including bruising, numbness, pain, swelling, redness, and areas of hardness around the treatment location.
Many patients see results in two to four treatments. After reaching a desired outcome, further treatments are not needed.
