Kybella is an effective neck reduction treatment that targets the fat cells and wrinkles associated with a double chin. An FDA-approved injectable, Kybella is a treatment that our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, offers to his patients as an alternative to a surgical neck treatment such as liposuction or a neck lift. Though results will not be as dramatic as a surgical procedure, the injection can be used on patients who are needing to slim and contour their neck and chin area. We invite everyone to schedule a visit at our Phoenix, AZ plastic surgery office to find out if Kybella could be the solution for them.
The best candidates for Kybella:
- Have moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, which gives the appearance of a double chin
- Desire a nonsurgical approach for fat reduction
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results

What to Expect
A number of small injections will be made by our skilled nurse injector in the fat under the chin during this outpatient procedure. If pain or discomfort will be an issue, a local numbing agent can be administered prior to a Kybella treatment. The treatment typically lasts around 15 – 20 minutes. Since 2 – 6 treatments are usually needed, they will be spaced out about a month apart.
After Kybella, there is little to no downtime, but patients might experience mild pain, swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the injection site. These side effects could last 2 – 3 days. Some patients may notice a reduction of fat after just a single treatment, but most patients will notice improvements after 2 – 3 treatments.

Diet and exercise aren’t always enough to combat a double chin, and sometimes liposuction surgery isn’t a viable option. However, Kybella can rid you of that double chin with no surgery and no downtime.
