Kybella

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable medicine that will liquefy fat in the submental fat pad. This area is commonly referred to as the double chin. Kybella has no downtime and the fat loss is permanent. It will also cause a tightening of the jawline skin and some of the neck skin, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Kybella is a non-human, non-animal form of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
Anyone who has excess fat under their chin may be a candidate for Kybella injections. It is always best to be evaluated to see if you are a candidate for Kybella injections. If you are not, we likely will have another solution for your area of concern.
When Kybella is injected into the fat under the chin, it immediately causes the cells to break up. This releases the stored fat and it is absorbed. The fat cells are permanently destroyed and you will never have them there again.  If you gain weight, you will gain it preferentially where there are more fat cells. The chin area will remain small unless you have gained an excessive amount of weight.
No special preparation for Kybella injections is necessary. However, we may have you stop certain medications that thin your blood. This will reduce the risk of significant bruising. If it is not safe to stop the medicines, you may still have Kybella injections, but you should expect more bruising.
Once you arrive, the staff will prepare your skin and answer any questions you may have. We will then perform the injection of Kybella using a very tiny needle. You will receive enough Kybella to treat the area of extra fat. There will be very little pain, but you will feel the prick of the needle entering your skin. Afterwards, you should not have pain, but the skin will feel tender. You may have some numbness in the area for several days that will go away with time.
There are no special instructions after receiving Kybella. The area will swell for a few days and this is generally not noticeable to most people other than those who know you the best. You may take Tylenol or ibuprofen if you do have some soreness, but most people will not need anything.
Once the fat is destroyed, it will never return. The skin will tighten over the next few weeks. You may need several treatment sessions to achieve the results you want, but the fat loss is permanent. However, you will continue to age naturally and the skin may loosen over time.
We will be happy to schedule a free consultation on Kybella injections. We first value educating you on your treatment options!
