If You Are Troubled With Your Double Chin, Try Kybella

San Francisco Plastic Surgeon Miguel Delgado, M.D.


Sub-mental fullness often referred to as the “double chin,” can be caused by aging, genetics and weight gain. This bothersome area rarely responds to diet and/or exercise. With the popularity of selfies and Skype, people have become much more aware of the fat that collects under the chin.

Kybella, a new non-surgical FDA approved treatment that is now available at the office of Miguel Delgado, M.D. Kybella has deoxycholic acid, which is an active ingredient that occurs naturally in the body and aids in dissolving fat. As an injectable used under the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells and then those cells cannot accumulate fat. A great option for those who are not ready for face lift or neck lift surgery.

*Results may vary


Most patients find there is little to no downtime and may get only minor bruising and swelling. Results are noticed for many after only 2 to 4 treatments spaced 1 month apart. The number of treatments can vary and will be determined by Dr. Delgado.

Not everyone is a candidate for Kybella; those who have diabetes, smoke, use steroids or have poor skin quality should not have the injections.
