Double chins are largely genetic, so diet and exercise may not help with the problem. If you are considering liposuction, learn more about Kybella®, a non-surgical treatment for a double chin. Dr. Balinger offers Kybella® for men and women in Houston, Conroe, and the surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment that reduces submental fullness that contributes to the appearance of a double chin. The upper area of the neck is difficult to tone down with diet and exercise. Liposuction is an option, but not everyone needs invasive surgery for the extra fat. Kybella® contains an enzyme that destroys fat cells over time to gradually reduce submental fullness.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
After your consultation with Dr. Balinger, we review the cost for the series of Kybella® injections. We offer free initial consultations at our offices in Houston and Conroe, as well as financing options for our patients.

How is Kybella® Performed?
Kybella® needs to be administered at several points in the fat layer that starts under your chin and extends to the top of your throat. Because of his experience with Kybella® treatments, Dr. Balinger can determine the best injection sites to maximize the benefits of your Kybella® injections. You will need a series of injections to eliminate the fat. In clinical studies, participants saw a noticeable reduction in submental fullness after three treatments. Expect the fat reduction process to take up to 16 weeks.
What is Recovery Like After Kybella®?
No downtime is needed after your Kybella® injections. You may have some mild tenderness and swelling at each injection site for the first few days. You can gently apply cold compresses on the area, but should avoid applying any pressure.
How Long Will Kybella® Results Last?
The enzyme in Kybella® destroys fat cells in your double chin, so the results are considered long-lasting. Dr. Balinger advises his Kybella® patients that manging their weight and eating properly are key to maintaining the results. Any changes to your weight may cause the remaining fat cells to enlarge which may causes fullness in the same area.
Now you can reduce your double chin without surgery or downtime thanks to Kybella®, a minimally invasive injection treatment that eliminates fat that contributes to your double chin.
