What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that specifically targets the fat cells beneath the chin. It contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells, leaving you with a more contoured and sculpted profile.

How does Kybella Work?

One of our MD Brothers medical providers will inject Kybella into the fat directly under your chin. Kybella’s main active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which is the fat-destroying ingredient.

Most patients will require 2-4 sessions to see their ideal aesthetic results, depending on the size of the area and the amount of fat present. Additionally, Kybella has the ability to contour the shape of your lower face by eliminating fat, resulting in a more defined jawline shape. The Kybella treatment will be repeated every 4-8 weeks until desired results are achieved.

What are the Benefits of Kybella?

  • Non-Surgical: Kybella provides a non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction or other invasive procedures. This means minimal downtime and no scarring.
  • Customized Treatment: Our experienced practitioners tailor Kybella treatments to your unique anatomy and aesthetic goals, ensuring natural-looking results.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. This leads to long-lasting improvements in the appearance of your double chin that last for years to come.

What Can I Expect from my Kybella Treatment?

  • Consultation: Our team will begin with a thorough consultation to understand your concerns and goals. We’ll assess whether Kybella is the right solution for you.
  • Treatment Plan: If Kybella is the recommended course of action, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan based on the number of sessions needed to achieve optimal results.
  • Treatment Session: During the session, Kybella will be injected strategically into the targeted area beneath your chin. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort.
  • Recovery: Most patients can resume normal activities shortly after the treatment. Some may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness, but these side effects are temporary and usually subside within a few days following the treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is suitable for individuals with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. Those who are pregnant or nursing cannot receive Kybella treatments. Additionally, Kybella is not a weight-loss aid. If you are overweight or obese, you may not be a good candidate for Kybella. It’s important to consult with our experts to determine if Kybella is the right solution for your specific needs.
