KYBELLA OVERVIEW

If you have a “double chin” that leaves you feeling uncomfortable about your appearance, you’re not alone. This type of excess fat is among the most difficult to correct, whether by diet, exercise, or by surgical methods like liposuction.
Kybella is a first-of-its-kind, FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that reduces submental fat — otherwise known as a double chin. The most amazing thing about KYBELLA™ is it works entirely without surgery. No incisions or sutures are required. No surgery or liposuction is involved.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA™ is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for the reduction of sub-mental fullness, or double chin, in men and women. Its active ingredient is a man-made formulation of deoxycholic acid, a compound that occurs naturally in the human body. The function of deoxycholic acid is to absorb and eliminate fat cells.

Because KYBELLA™ is a minimally invasive treatment for moderate to severe under-chin fat, it has become quite popular since its approval and introduction in early 2015.

What Can I Expect From KYBELLA Treatment?

KYBELLA™ requires multiple treatments, depending on the heaviness of the chin and neck area. Treatments are given at our Allentown Office approximately 10-12 weeks apart and normally take only around 30 minutes each treatment.

During each visit, we first cleanse your chin and neck area. A topical anesthetic can be applied if you desire. We then make a series of very small injections of KYBELLA™ below your chin. No incisions or sutures are required. No surgery or liposuction is involved.

What Happens After My Treatment?

Most patients return to work and social activities right after a treatment. Their normal exercise routines can go on uninterrupted.

As is true of other injectable treatments, you may experience some temporary swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, or numbness around the treatment area for around 2 weeks.

How Long Do The Results Last?

Since KYBELLA™ actually destroys fat cells, the results of the treatment are permanent. This is because once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat. Unlike other injectable cosmetic treatments, no re-treatment is expected after optimal results with KYBELLA™.

Post-Treatment Recommendations

  • After your treatment, you should expect swelling and redness. You may also experience bruising, pain, numbness, and induration. This will normally last less than 5 days, and for some patients may last up to 14 days.
  • Apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes as needed.
  • Do not participate in strenuous activity for 3 days following treatment.
  • Do not scratch, pick or traumatize the area in any way. Do not massage or manipulate the injection site.
  • You may apply your normal skin care regimen and sunscreen normally.
  • Call the office if you have any difficulty swallowing, crusting or scabbing, asymmetry of your smile or any other unusual symptoms. In case of emergency call 911.
