Kybella- The Fat Blasting Injections

By adminW
November 2, 2018

What would you say if I told you that you could get rid of your double-chin without surgery?  Well, with Kybella®, you can.

What is Kybella®, you ask?  Kybella® is an injectable medicine that destroys fat cells.  It has an FDA-approved indication for treating submental fullness, more commonly referred to as “double chin”.  This treatment destroys fat cells, which will improve chin profile in individuals with moderate to severe fat under the chin.

Kybella® is also being used “off label” for other areas of the body where targeted areas of fat reduction is desired, with outstanding results. Such as “bra-fat”, above knees, abdomen, inner/outer thighs and upper arms.

Are you a good candidate?

Kybella® is a great option for you if you are bothered by a double chin and want to avoid the down time and possible side effects associated with surgery.

BTW...You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin and diet and exercise alone may not improve this issue, as genetics and aging also play a role.

What to expect?

The day of treatment, photos will be taken to track your results over time.  Topical numbing medicine and cold packs are used to help make the procedure more comfortable for you.  The treatment area is thoroughly evaluated and your provider will place markings and transfer a temporary grid on the area to create a treatment plan.  Once the area is prepped, the actual injection process is quick and takes about 5-10 min.

The most common side effects that you might experience are swelling and bruising.  Pain, redness, numbness and areas of hardness are also common.  These side effects are temporary and will resolve on their own.

After treatment, swelling will be most significant for first 48 hours and continue to improve over the next few weeks.  Although you may be excited to see results right away, it’s important to be patient, as it takes time for the body to process the fat cleared from the treatment area after each treatment.  This process typically takes 4-6 weeks.

It is also important to mention that patients typically require 2-4 treatments for optimal results, up to 6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart could be recommended by your provider.  Each treatment plan is individually tailored depending on how much fat is beneath your chin and your aesthetic goals.

As always, please feel free to give us a call or schedule a consultation to discuss if Kybella® might be the right treatment for you.
