kybella-logoExcess fatty tissue under the chin (medically referred to as “submental fat”) can occur as a result of weight gain, genetic predisposition, or other factors. Often called a “double chin,” this concern can be very resistant to diet and exercise. In the past, liposuction was typically the only option to effectively address this condition, and there were no non-surgical treatments available – until now!

If you’re dissatisfied with your appearance due to a double chin, KYBELLA® may be able to help. KYBELLA® is an innovative injectable technique FDA-approved to reduce fat under the chin without surgery or extensive downtime. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Charles Perry, MD, offers this procedure at our state-of-the-art practice.

What Are the Benefits of KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is composed of a molecule called deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in the human body. This molecule can be used to dissolve excess fat cells under the chin, which your body can then gradually eliminate through normal metabolic processes.

KYBELLA®> is a revolutionary technique, and the first of its kind to be FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of a double chin. The treatment offers numerous potential benefits when performed by a skilled injector, including:

KYBELLA® can be a very effective injectable enhancement in the right hands. Only an experienced medical professional* should perform this technique.

How Do I Know If I’m a Candidate for KYBELLA®?

It is important to note that not everyone will be a candidate for KYBELLA®. You must be 18 years of age or older, in good overall health, and interested in enhancing the contour of your chin. KYBELLA® reduces fatty tissue, but it is not designed to tighten or firm the skin. If you are experiencing skin laxity as well as fatty tissue, we may recommend another approach.

How Is the KYBELLA® Procedure Performed?

When you arrive for your initial consultation, your injector will evaluate your areas of concern, discuss your cosmetic goals, and develop a customized treatment plan based on these factors. KYBELLA® will then be administered to targeted areas on your chin through a series of precise injections. Most patients report little discomfort, and we can provide numbing agents to help make your experience as comfortable as possible. One session may be sufficient to achieve your cosmetic goals; however, most individuals will require between two and four treatments to optimize results.

What Can I Expect During KYBELLA® Recovery?

After the procedure, you should feel free to go home and relax. Most patients can return to normal activity in about a day or two. You may experience some tenderness, swelling, and mild bruising in the treated area, which is normal. These effects should subside over the course of a few days.

How Long After KYBELLA® Treatment Will I See Results?

In the months following treatment, you should see a slimmer, more contoured profile develop. While the effects of KYBELLA® generally occur gradually, the treatment provides potential for extraordinarily long-lasting results. This is because the fat cells removed with KYBELLA® are permanently removed and cannot regrow.

With that in mind, note that new fat cells can grow in place of the ones removed. For this reason, we advise you to live a healthy, active lifestyle and adhere to a balanced diet in order to maintain the effects of KYBELLA®.

How Much Does KYBELLA® Cost?

At Chrysalis Cosmetics, the price of KYBELLA® is typically $600 per vial and $1200 for two vials, with most patients needing two to four vials per treatment. Please be aware that these numbers can vary based on several factors, namely the number of treatment sessions.

*New Injections Policy 

While Dr. Perry performs many of our injectable treatments, his surgery schedule continues to grow and he wants to make injectable procedures as convenient as possible for our patients. This is why many of our injectable treatments will be performed by our extensively trained and highly skilled nurse injectors. If patients specifically request to see Dr. Perry for injectable appointments, there may be a delay of at least one month, and the treatment will require a minimum of one of these options:

  1. A) 50 units of BOTOX® Cosmetic and two syringes of a dermal filler solution
  2. B) 3 syringes of a dermal filler solution


  1. C) An MD injection fee of $200 if the patient is only receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic or less than three syringes of a dermal filler solution

Please contact Chrysalis Cosmetics with any questions about our new injections policy.
