What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that reduces moderate to severe fat below the chin, known as submental fat. It is frequently referred to as a “double chin.”  

Kybella is a manufactured substance similar to the deoxycholic acid produced naturally in the body. The deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps break down fat cells.  

How does Kybella reduce chin fat?

Kybella is genuinely groundbreaking. When injected into the submental area, it destroys fat cells. Patients receive 1-2 vials of Kybella over 2-3 sessions, each scheduled 4-6 weeks apart. 

Once Kybella is injected into the treatment area, it kills fat cells, which over time, are naturally absorbed and eliminated from the body. The result is a smoother and more streamlined look. 

What can I expect in a Kybella treatment?

Patients receive targeted injections under the chin during a Kybella treatment. Each session lasts about 20 minutes. Patients usually book at least two sessions, although some may need to return for additional treatment. The exact number depends on the amount of chin fat desired to eliminate. 

Do Kybella treatments hurt?

Most patients experience little to no pain with Kybella injections. Some may feel a mild burning sensation, although topical numbing agents can help minimize any discomfort. Afterward, some patients may experience mild redness and swelling for the first week after their appointment. 

Is Kybella safe?

Kybella injections are FDA-approved and generally safe when performed by an experienced medical professional, such as the experts at Kasden Plastic Surgery.  

Patients have enjoyed excellent results with this treatment. Most patients tolerate treatment exceptionally well and give Kybella a high satisfaction rate.  

Treatment may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or patients with infections in the chin area, or who are using blood-thinning medications.
