Dr. Janet K. Turkle and staff perform injections of KYBELLA for double chins in Indianapolis and Carmel, Indiana.
They are pleased to offer their patients the innovative technology of the KYBELLA procedure, which is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical procedure using injections to reduce the fat that causes fullness under the chin (often referred to as a “double chin”).
About KYBELLA for Double Chins
We’ve found many people are not happy with fullness under their chins caused by excess fat. The excess fat in this area leading to the “double chin” appearance can come from normal weight gain, the aging process, or even your own genetics, as this is a natural part of the face for fat to deposit. Both men and women, (often those at an otherwise normal weight) can have fullness in this area. KYBELLA is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that can help.
When KYBELLA comes into contact with fat cells under your chin, the active ingredient (deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule) destroys them. Then, over time, your body natural eliminates the fat. The result is a more contoured, defined profile which enhances your overall appearance!

Before & After
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely. Turkle & Associates offers a wide breadth of services to treat our patients in a way that best fits their lifestyle, budget, and aesthetic goals. Because we are a plastic surgery center, we are able to offer both laser lipo and traditional liposuction to treat double chins.
After a Kybella treatment, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities immediately. However, you may experience some “social downtime” due to redness, swelling, or bruising. Your injector will provide you with post-care instructions to help minimize these side effects.
Most people report minimal discomfort during their KYBELLA injections but there can be some fullness and tightness for a couple of days following the procedure.
Kybella is a specific injection that we strategically place under the area of the chin to target submental fat. Kybella injections only require a very tiny needle, and the entire treatment usually only takes about 10 to 20 minutes.
The fat cells that are treated during injections of KYBELLA are permanently destroyed.
Kybella results are not instant. It takes between three to six months for the injection to destroy the fat cells, and for those fat cells to be naturally eliminated by the body.
Depending on the amount of fat underneath your chin, along with your overall aesthetic goals, the number of treatments may vary. We will discuss this during your initial consultation at Turkle & Associates. Most of our patients need between two and four Kybella treatments to reach their final goal.
Currently, Kybella is only FDA approved to be used to reduce fat under the chin, commonly called a double chin.
