How Can I Slim My Neck?

A double chin is more than a deposit of fat. It may mean avoiding pictures except at certain angles or feeling reluctant to draw attention to yourself.

How Can I Slim My Neck?

If you want to slim your neck, you have many options. These include:

Neck Liposuction

Alone or in combination with skin tightening, liposuction is an effective way to remove fat. It also comes with a little bit more recovery time than some people prefer. 


This radiofrequency and ultrasound energy combination breaks up fat cells and tightens the skin for two neck slimming treatments in one. 

CoolSculpting Elite™

This fat freezing procedure kills the fat cells to reduce the fullness of your neck and allows the skin to retract back into a youthful appearance.


Kybella® can restore your confidence by removing your double chin. This FDA-approved injectable treatment is the first of its kind and the first to target submental (under the chin) fat. 

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a treatment for removing your double chin and slimming your neck. It targets fat cells so the body can remove them over time. This leaves your neck slimmer and more contoured. Kybella® requires no anesthesia and takes under half an hour

How Does Kybella® Slim My Neck?

The fat that forms a double chin resists most attempts to remove it. You may lose weight but see no reduction in your double chin. Kybella® helps remove this fat using synthetic deoxycholic acid. The same molecule occurs in our digestive system where it helps break down and absorb fats from our diet. When injected, it breaks down fat cells so the body can remove them. 

Am I a Candidate for Kybella®?

If you want to remove a double chin and slim your neck, Kybella® may work for you. Neck liposuction also effectively removes neck fat, but it is more invasive and requires more recovery time. Kybella® works through a series of injections so that you can return to normal activities right away

How Many Kybella® Sessions Will I Need?

You will probably need at least two sessions of Kybella® to see results. You may need a maximum of six sessions spaced one month apart. Results may develop after a few weeks as the body carries away damaged fat cells. This process will continue even after your last treatment. 

Is There Any Downtime With Kybella®?

You can resume your normal activities after treatment, but follow any instructions your provider gives you. You will experience some swelling in the treated area as the fat starts to break down. This will improve significantly over the first few days, but you may have some residual swelling for a few weeks.
