What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a non-surgical injectable treatment, meant to eliminate fat cells below the chin. Helping us to get rid of that unwanted submental fat and that dreaded double-chin. Kybella® can help you to improve your facial profile and get finally get rid of that fat and achieve the well-contoured face you’ve always wanted.
How does Kybella® Work?
The procedure is fairly straightforward, first we determine the proper treatment spots for the injection and see where you are in need of the most correction. Then we simply prepare for the injection. Once the Kybella® solution is injected, you may feel a burning or tingling sensation, which is completely normal and should pass within a few minutes.
The Kybella® solution contains acids identical to the deoxycholic acid in your body. Deoxycholic acid is meant to destroy fat cells. Kybella® acts in the same way, directing your fat cells to undergo “cellular death”, eliminating them completely, as they are flushed out as a natural waste product by the body.
Are You a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
It all starts with a consultation, in which we will determine if Kybella® is right for you – as some patients, with more advanced sub-mental fat pads, or certain underlying conditions that may be the cause of the excess fat, may not respond well to treatment.
Kybella® may be right for you if:
- You are bothered by the presence of your double-chin, and diet & exercise have not worked for your submental fat.
- You are in a healthy weight range for your age and height.
- You have good skin laxity; skin that isn’t overly loose or hanging.
- You prefer a non-surgical alternative to losing your submental fat.
Kybella® is the safest, minimally-invasive method of reducing submental chin fat, and alleviating patients of their double-chin.
Despite the relatively simple procedure, Kybella® does require some minor downtime for recovery. The procedure takes about an hour to complete, and some patients should expect minor swelling or bruising, for up to a week after (most swelling will subside within the first 48 hours). Our physicians recommend that patients:
- Stay Hydrated, before and after the procedure.
- Avoid salt and alcohol, before and after the procedure to reduce chances of swelling.
- Apply ice to the treatment area for the first few hours after completion.
- Try and schedule procedures during a weekend, vacation, or time off – as they may need a day or two to rest and reduce any swelling that may appear.
