Can Men Get a Kybella Treatment, Too?

Why does society assume that only women care about their appearance? Men are just as concerned about how they look, especially as they grow older. One area that plagues many men, even those who aren’t overweight, is the infamous double chin. 

Catherine Moore, MD, and her talented team at Defying Time in Willow Park, Texas, offer patented Kybella® injections as a fast, minimally invasive solution for under-chin fat.

What’s up with my double chin?

The fat underneath your chin is known as submental fat, and it can develop due to a number of factors. This extra fat layer can be a result of excess weight or obesity, but other causes can be to blame as well, such as the following: 


Our skin loses elasticity with age, which makes it easier for gravity to pull down on this area and cause it to sag. 


If others in your family display a double chin with age, you have a higher chance of developing one as well. 


Poor posture can weaken the muscles of your neck and chin. These muscles and the covering skin can lose elasticity over time and allow the tissues to sag. 

Tackle submental fat with Kybella injections 

Men and women are both susceptible to developing submental fat, and both are equally likely to be concerned about how it affects their appearance. Instead of invasive liposuction or other prolonged procedures, Defying Time prefers to destroy these offending fat cells with Kybella injections.

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable therapy for eliminating submental fat. Kybella uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to destroy excess fat cells that accumulate underneath the chin. And once the fat cells are destroyed, the body naturally eliminates them to enhance your natural profile.

Since this acid is also naturally produced by your body, you should have no trouble using Kybella injections to help your body destroy the fat. Most patients need a series of injections spaced out over a period of time. The number of injections you’ll need will depend on your specific situation. 

Kybella injections are for men

Many men are interested in eliminating submental fat and reshaping their facial features with Kybella for the following reasons: 

Tailored treatment

Men tend to have more neck fat than their female counterparts, and this fat is typically spread out over a larger area. Dr. Moore and her team will tailor a specific aesthetic profile just for you. 

Fast and convenient

Kybella injections are quick and require no anesthesia or downtime. This appeals to many men who have busy lifestyles and little patience for wasting time. 

Results last

Men are about getting results, and you’ll see optimal results from Kybella injections in just a few short weeks. Plus, the results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. As aging progresses, you may request maintenance injections from time to time. 

If Kybella isn’t right for you, we also have other options such as Exilis. Are you ready to get rid of your double chin and look years younger? Learn more by booking an appointment online or over the phone with Defying Time today.
