Say goodbye to: chin fat

Improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin.

How does it work? First, you will meet with one of our providers to determine if you are a good candidate for KYBELLA®. Next, we’ll decide on a treatment plan together in order to best meet your aesthetic desires safely and ethically. Then, treatment will be scheduled and administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. This process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the mutually agreed upon treatment plan.

Why do HerMD providers recommend Kybella?

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment created to destroy the fat cells under your chin.

We recommend Kybella as a minimally invasive treatment option to remove fat cells underneath the chin with little downtime.

Treatable areas:

  • Under chin

Pre-Treatment / Post Treatment

Pre-treatment: KYBELLA should not be used in patients who:

  • Are pregnant
  • Nursing
  • Trying to become pregnant
  • Have experienced severe allergies/anaphylaxis
  • Have a history of nerve damage, facial paralysis, or difficulty swallowing
  • KYBELLA should not be used in areas of active inflammation or infection (cysts, pimples, rash). These conditions may be contraindications to receiving the treatment.
  • Notify the office of HerMD Health if you have any major dental work scheduled 2 weeks before/after the procedure, or if you have had any recent illness.

Post Treatment

  • Redness/swelling is normal for 4-7 days. Swelling is usually significant in the first couple of days to a week. Patients report a “bullfrog” appearance (fluid in the skin under the chin). This is normal.
  • Numbness and mild discomfort is common for 2-4 weeks after your treatment.
  • Do not rub or massage the area treated for 24 hours.
  • Avoid irritants (glycolics, acids, retinoids) until all the redness/swelling resolves.
  • You may apply cool compresses for 15 minutes every hour for comfort and to reduce swelling.
  • Makeup may be used after 4 hours if skin is not broken or irritated.
  • To prevent bruising: avoid use of aspirin, St. John’s Wort, and high doses of vitamin E for a week. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen) may be taken for discomfort.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Try to sleep propped upright with a pillow for the first 48 hours to take the pressure off your neck.
  • Avoid major dental work, (excluding cleanings) for 2 weeks after treatment.
  • You should immediately notify your provider if you have any questions or concerns or see any signs of problems (severe or extended: pain, redness, swelling, bruising. lumpiness, signs of infection, blood supply compromise, trouble swallowing, uneven smile or trouble with moving the mouth/chin or other). Signs of blood supply compromise include blanching or whitening/darkening/blackening of the skin, any discoloration, pain, or skin break/sloughing.
How does KYBELLA® work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.

How many treatments will I need?

Our expert team of medical providers will work with you to create a treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each session you will be given multiple injections under your chin. The average number of treatments needed is between 2-4 treatments spaced at least one month apart, but in some cases, up to 6 treatments are needed. 1-3 vials will be used per treatment based on individual needs. The number of treatments and vials needed will be discussed during your consultation.

How long will the results last?

KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells into the area injected. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Great news… this means results are permanent!

    The whole experience with HerMD in Franklin TN from start to finish has been amazing. I was a new patient and met with Terri Greer. She was fantastic! She listened to all of my concerns and helped me sort through which options would be best for me. She spent over an hour with me and never once did I feel rushed or that she needed to get to the next appointment. She talked with me like a friend and never down to me if I had questions. I am so happy that I chose to go with HerMD and cannot recommend them enough!
