If you are looking to tighten up from a medical procedure, you have three main options:
Kybella: Kybella is a non-invasive procedure that contours the chin for a more defined jawline. The treatment reduces excess fat by destroying fat cells in the target area. This gives a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, eliminating the double chin look. The most significant difference between Kybella, a neck lift, and Chin Liposuction is that Kybella is non-invasive.
Neck Lift:A neck lift predominately addresses the neck bands and excess skin below the jawline. This can go hand in hand with a facelift procedure. If you have sagging skin around the neck or chin area, a facelift/neck lift can remove excess skin. This is a common treatment for aging skin.
Chin Liposuction: Liposuction for your chin involves an invasive surgical procedure. Depending on the patient’s preference, this procedure can be done under a local anesthetic or a general anesthetic.
To achieve a defined jawline, the fat is removed along the side of the jawline as well as the chin. During the procedure, doctors administer numbing medicine to the area and then remove the excess fat through suction. This is done by utilizing a thin metal tube or cannula.

Each treatment has different advantages. Having specific goals in mind for your body contouring process is essential.

Kybella will reduce the excess fat many people have under their chin without surgery. This non-invasive treatment destroys fat cells which results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store additional fat, leaving you double-chin free. This procedure takes as little as 15-20 minutes with no recovery time. You may experience mild swelling which will subside after a few days.
Khloe Kardashian in Favor of Kybella
Reality TV star, Khloe Kardashian, has been a longtime fan of Kybella. She partnered with them for the brand’s Live Chin Up Campaign, which was designed to help people keep their “chin up” and not let things that bother them stand in their way. Khloe Kardashian is in favor of Kybella’s “chin up” attitude to help men and women look and feel their best.
Both men and women can be self-conscious about their double-chin. Stored fat in the chin area doesn’t just plague people with excess body weight- genes and aging can cause double chins on people with otherwise ideal BMI’s.
During your consultation, the doctors at Bruno | Brown will assess your chin area to determine if Kybella is right for you. They will work with you to customize your treatment and target the fat cells under your chin to reach your ideal look.
During the procedure, multiple small injections of Kybella are injected into the treatment area under your chin. Kybella is administered in two treatments, and our physicians will decide if you need additional treatments based on the amount of remaining fat.
