Unwanted neck fat is something that a lot of people struggle to remove. Even those on healthy diets and who lead active lifestyles find it challenging to remove excess fat beneath the chin – commonly known as a “double chin.”
There have always been cosmetic procedures available to help patients reduce that unwanted excess chin fat. These days, there are non-invasive options available such as Kybella® injectables administered by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon.

Non-surgical Double Chin Reduction
Kybella® is undoubtedly the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure for double chin reduction. Kybella® is an FDA-approved injection that contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a safe chemical that can reduce submental fat beneath the chin.
Deoxycholic acid is a natural detergent-like chemical, and when it gets injected in the chin, it “dissolves” fat cells over four to six weeks. Kybella® injections are quick to administer, and minimal discomfort is experienced by patients receiving the treatment.
Kybella® is a perfect non-invasive cosmetic treatment option for patients that want to reduce the experience of unwanted excess fat beneath their chin and jawline. At The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT, Dr. Langdon administers all Kybella® injections to patients.
Benefits Of Kybella®
Arguably the most significant benefit of Kybella® as a cosmetic treatment is that no surgery is needed. This is a big selling point to patients that are either concerned about anesthesia or have anxiety about surgery in general.
Another advantage of the cost-effective Kybella® injectable is that the chemical used, deoxycholic acid, makes fat dissolve naturally. Over four to six weeks, the submental fat cells underneath the chin and jawline are reduced through this process.
Kybella® treatment sessions only take around 15 to 20 minutes. That means you could have your Kybella treatment session during your lunch break and return to work afterward, or continue with other activities in your day.
Each injection isn’t particularly painful as a topical anesthetic cream can be used to numb the injection sites. And lastly, the effects of Kybella® treatment sessions are long-lasting, giving you greater confidence in your facial appearance.
Am I a Candidate For Kybella®
As with any cosmetic procedure, Kybella® may be an ideal treatment option for most men and women. It’s worth knowing that there are some prerequisites you should keep in mind before you consider whether Kybella® is right for you or not.
You’re considered a good candidate for Kybella® if you have a healthy lifestyle – i.e., you exercise regularly and eat a well-balanced diet. You should also be someone that’s committed to maintaining the results of your Kybella® treatment.
Kybella® might not be suitable for you if you’ve previously had surgery on your face (or plan to in the future). Additionally, Kybella® might be a bad idea if you have trouble swallowing, bleeding problems, or are pregnant or nursing a newborn baby.
