Our board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa can help you eliminate that fat under your chin (submental fat) with Kybella injections. Under the chin is a difficult place to lose weight, especially if you have never been overweight or do not need to lose weight. A double chin appearance can happen to anyone of any size. This is why Kybella is such a great treatment! It will battle your smallest under the chin bulge with great success. Kybella is safe for spot fat reduction under your chin where the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its safety for patients over the age of 18. It is made up of deoxycholic acid, which will destroy the fat cells that store stubborn chin fat. Kybella can be used in place of a neck liposuction treatment if you do not have a thick neck or have too much chin fat to lose. Our board-certified plastic surgeons in Delray Beach, FL may recommend other treatments to combine with your Kybella injections for optimal results. You may also need several treatment sessions to eliminate your double chin.
If you are 18-years-of-age and older, you may qualify for Kybella if you have the following:
- Mild to moderate fat under your chin (also known as a "double chin," or "turkey neck")
- A recommendation for a nonsurgical approach for neck fat reduction
You may not wish to have neck liposuction as this stage in your life, and Kybella allows you to have a nonsurgical treatment that is injected into the submental area (where the chin and neck meet) to reduce fat and correct your facial profile.

"4 months ago, Dr. Goodwin performed neck lipo to reduce genetic "neck fullness/double chin." I'm an early 50's male and I got a very good result. Dr. G encouraged me to have general anesthesia for optimal results. He said this allows him to be more thorough. He never tried to sell me on chin or cheek procedures. He's a straight talker who doesn't over promise. I talked with one other Dr. who was $500 cheaper, but his "after" photos were not so good. I now feel much better about the way I look."- D.I. / Healthgrades / Feb 01, 2019
"Male - Neck Lipo (No thermi) Happy With Results From Dr. Goodwin - Since high school I had a prominent pouch of fat under my chin. It did not really get worse or better with weight gain or loss. Last year, when I began talking to Dr's about possibly correcting this problem, one Dr. told me I needed to have neck and lower face lift ($13,000). The same Dr. gave me a 7K quote on doing my eyes ( I had not asked him about my eyes). Dr. G and 3 other Dr.s said that since my skin was tight, a face lift was not recommended. I brought up the idea of having a chin implant with Dr. G, but he disagreed, and said he thought I would do fine with just neck lipo. He was not my cheapest option, but he's a confident, plainspoken man. I feel lucky that I found him and made the choice to have him do the surgery."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 31, 2019
"Had an amazing experience from start to finish! The whole staff is very attentive and welcoming."- L. / Google / Jan 26, 2019
"From the moment i walked in, till the moment i was carried out ??, this place was amazing. The staff and the Doctor made this whole process easy, comfortable, and informative. They are truly dedicated to making sure you get what you want and getting the job done right! I personally didnt mind them being slightly behind on the scheduled time for the surgery due to another patients surgery, it showed me he values his clients needs, and the work he does to insure everything was done correctly. If you are looking for a Doctor that you can trust, don't look any further than Dr. Schnitt and his staff. I promise you won't be disappointed! Thank you everyone over at Inspire!"- K.G. / Google / Jan 25, 2019
What to Expect
At your out-patient Kybella injection session in our office, we will mark the area of your neck to be treated and topically numb the area before beginning the needle insertion. Prepare yourself for several small injections into the fatty area of the chin. Icing the area may also be used to limit the amount of pain you feel after the injection. You can expect your treatment session to last about 15 – 20 minutes. Many of our patients have multiple sessions (2 – 6) spaced out a month a part.
The good news about Kybella injections is that there is no downtime, however, patients will experience swelling and some minor pain, bruising, and redness. These side effects may last a couple days, and if they last longer, please contact our office. Many of our patients see a distinct change in their neck fat with one treatment! However, most patients want to see a noticeable difference and come back for the full series of injection sessions.
