KYBELLA® in Reno, NV

Many women and men have stubborn fat that won’t go away. This can negatively affect self-esteem, especially when fat is present in the face. And one of the most common areas for fat to accumulate is beneath the chin.

Submental fullness (under-chin fat) is responsible for the dreaded double chin, and whether this is due to genetics, weight gain, or the aging process, it can be frustrating. Luckily, KYBELLA® can help you achieve the chin, jawline, and neck you desire.

KYBELLA® is a safe and effective injectable treatment that eliminates submental fat cells. This minimally invasive treatment offers some of the same results as more invasive procedures like liposuction surgery, facelift surgery, or neck lift surgery but without needing a scalpel or downtime.

What Are the Benefits of KYBELLA®?

Reduced Double Chin

Because KYBELLA® targets and eliminates stubborn subcutaneous fat in the neck and chin, you can achieve a thinner and better-contoured lower face that compliments your entire facial appearance.

More Youthful Appearance

Submental fullness can make women and men look much older than they are. However, after your KYBELLA® results are finalized, you can look younger, fitter, and healthier with results that balance your entire facial aesthetic.

Increased Confidence

Embarrassment about a double chin can cause some men and women to cover their necks with clothing, which only masks the concern. With KYBELLA®, you can fix this issue to feel more comfortable and confident about how you look.

What Does My KYBELLA® Treatment Include?

Your KYBELLA® Consultation

During your consultation, you will discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals, and one of our injectors will examine your condition to determine if KYBELLA® is the right treatment option. Additionally, you can ask any questions you have about the treatment.

Your KYBELLA® Treatment

KYBELLA® is a simple injectable treatment performed in our office.

KYBELLA® consists of synthetic deoxycholic acid. This molecule is natural to the body and helps break down and absorb dietary fat to achieve the slender and more defined appearance you desire. KYBELLA® is injected directly into the fatty area under the chin to destroy these fat cells.

Combination Treatments

KYBELLA® helps patients achieve stunning results. Many women and men choose to combine KYBELLA® with other non-surgical facial treatments, including:

What Are Your Concerns About KYBELLA®?


There is no downtime associated with KYBELLA®, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment.

You may experience swelling, bruising, pain, discomfort, numbness, redness, and/or hardness in the treatment area, but these should dissipate within a few days.


Because KYBELLA® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment, you will not have any resulting scars.


KYBELLA® cost varies for each patient and depends on several factors, including the extent of correction needed and whether you are combining other treatments with KYBELLA®.

During your consultation, you will receive a cost estimate for your treatment. At Bonaldi Aesthetics Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we are happy to offer financing options to our patients.


While patients do not require anesthesia, a topical ointment can be applied. Many patients report feeling a burning sensation in the injected area that lasts for about 15 minutes.

After your treatment, you may feel some discomfort and pain; however, this should resolve itself, and medications can be taken to alleviate any pain you experience.

Frequently Asked Questions About KYBELLA®

  • How many KYBELLA® treatments will I need?

    While some patients will only need one KYBELLA® treatment session to achieve the results they are looking for, other patients with more significant submental fullness may require repeated treatments. You will be advised on how many treatments you will need during your consultation.

  • What results can I expect after my KYBELLA® treatment?

    Once your side effects dissipate (usually after a few days), you can see a significant reduction in the fullness beneath the chin. However, it can take several months for your results to become final. Once this happens, you can look forward to permanent fat reduction under the chin and a more defined chin and jaw profile.

  • How long will my KYBELLA® treatment take?

    Most KYBELLA® treatment sessions take 15 to 20 minutes to complete.

  • How long do KYBELLA® results last?

    Your KYBELLA® results are permanent; however, KYBELLA® cannot keep away the natural effects of aging. Additionally, gaining weight can cause fat to accumulate under the chin. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle (balanced diet and regular exercise) can prolong your results.
