Men and women alike struggle with double chins, regardless of health, weight, or age. Many, however, are apprehensive about seeking a surgical solution. Surgery, however, is no longer needed to reduce stubborn fat along the chin, thanks to the Kybella injection. The Kybella injectable is one of the many services offered by Dr. Chris Robb at our three Tennessee locations in Columbia, Murfreesboro, and Spring Hill.
Best for: Submental fullness (aka “double chin”)
Treatment Time: 15-30 minutes
Downtime: 2-3 days
Kybella is an injectable treatment option that may be right for you if you are bothered by submental fullness (commonly known as a double chin) or fat found underneath the chin and along the jawline.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable medication, which is administered into the fat underneath the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is naturally found in our bodies and is responsible for destroying fat cells. Once injected, the acid is able to destroy submental fat cells and reduce fullness along the chin.
How does Kybella work?
During your Kybella treatment, Dr. Robb will customize the experience to your unique needs. He will administer a series of small injections underneath your chin to the target areas, using a specially designed template to precisely mark all injection locations. The number of treatment sessions will depend on the individual’s neck and desired look. Dr. Robb will work with each of his Tennessee patients to determine the number of treatments needed. Different treatment sessions are performed at least a month apart, and you won’t have more than six sessions total.

Why choose Kybella?
Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable treatment that targets the fat underneath one’s chin. It uses natural ingredients and works to get rid of those pesky fat cells that are contributing to your submental fullness. If your double chin is affecting your self-confidence or making you look older than you are, Kybella is an excellent procedure to combat these issues. Dr. Robb recommends this treatment for any of his Tennessee patients who believe that their submental fullness or double chin is making them look heavier, older, or causing them to feel self-conscious about their appearance.
