What Is Kybella?

A prescription medication produced by Allergan Inc., Kybella, is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to significantly reduce the presence of moderate to severe fat found under the chin. Kybella®, which is deoxycholic acid, works by destroying submental fat cells in the targeted treatment area, creating a more contoured look without the downtime of invasive surgery. When used correctly, it rejuvenates your facial appearance, creating a leaner jawline and a more youthful look.

Pre/Post Treatment Timeline

Patients seeking Kybella should not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

Planning

How Kybella Works Info Graphic

How Does Kybella Work?

Administered by a licensed health professional at Premier Medical Aesthetics, we carefully inject Kybella into the submental fat, the area between your neck and your chin, using multiple injections to break down the fat cells. When properly injected into the jowl area, it will dissolve the fat associated with a double chin. Kybella’s active ingredient, a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that assists in breaking down and absorbing excess fat. Once destroyed, the fat cells can no longer retain or accumulate fat, making additional treatments outside the scope of your original treatment plan unlikely. The results are a more streamlined neck and chin, improving your overall profile.

How Is Kybella Administered?

Administered by one of our Kybella-trained medical professionals, tiny doses injected between the skin and muscle directly beneath your chin improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat found in the pocket under the chin. A typical appointment lasts 15 to 20 minutes relative to the number of injections and the amount of fat targeted.

Cost of Kybella

Kybella, like most cosmetic procedures, is directly associated with the patient’s aesthetic goals, the number of injections sites, and the number of treatments needed. Since every patient is different, it’s best to schedule a free consultation to inspect your fat distribution and your goals so we can outline patient expectations. We strive for 5-star service and want to ensure your satisfaction with long-lasting, natural results.

The best candidates for Kybella are adults over the age of 18 years of age, with moderate to severe submental fat or excess fat beneath the chin. Kybella is most effective with multiple sessions, so people considering Kybella should be prepared to have more than one treatment. When you come in for your consultation, we will discuss how many procedures may be necessary to achieve your desired results for your double chin reduction.
The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat. As with most cosmetic procedures, Kybella has some associated risks. Before receiving Kybella, you should discuss any medical conditions you may have. Patients should not receive Kybella if they are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
Yes! Kybella works wonders for both men and women to remove stubborn fatty deposits under the chin. Regardless of how often you work out and how healthy you eat, Kybella can help men reduce localized fat to reveal a stronger, more defined jawline.
Considered a permanent solution, Kybella breaks down the cells that store fat beneath the chin and prevents them from accumulating in the future. Because Kybella drastically reduces the targeted fat cells but does not remove every fat cell, patients should maintain a consistent weight to avoid additional treatments.
Once injected into the submental area, Kybella goes to work, destroying the fat cells. Over the course of your fat-blasting treatments, your body converts fat into cellular debris (organic waste left over after a cell dies), flushing it naturally through the lymphatic and circulatory system. In layman’s terms, the fat is metabolized by the body and cleansed from the system as waste.

If you’re bothered by the fullness under your chin and want a solution without surgery, Kybella might be the perfect solution. Schedule a free consultation to go over any questions or concerns you may have with one of our health professionals.
There may be some minimal pain associated with a Kybella treatment. To ensure your comfort and minimize any pain, we use a pharmaceutical-grade numbing cream. When the cream is active, we use a grid-like pattern to inject Kybella subcutaneously in the area between the chin and neck to melt away fat.
Every patient is different. Some patients report noticeable results after 12 weeks or at least two sessions, while most are visible within six months. We can go over realistic expectations during your free consultation to see if Kybella is the right solution for your troubling under chin fat.
Kybella targets specific fat cells that cause fullness underneath the chin, but does not eliminate every fat cell. The fat cells that remain can grow with weight gain, but that change would likely be more significant without Kybella.
Kybella is an effective, non-surgical option utilizing a series of small injections to eliminate excessive fat under the chin. Delivering small doses of a synthetic version of a natural acid found in the body’s stomach, injections of Kybella require no anesthesia, no wounds, no scars, and no downtime. Most people would choose the syringe over the scalpel because it carries fewer risks.

Kybella Precautions

Kybella Precautions

Answers to common concerns about Kybella treatments.

The FDA has approved Kybella for the effective use in treating excessive fat, specifically under the chin. Some places, including Europe, use Kybella injections or Mesotherapy to treat the fat around the elbows; upper arms; knees; legs; bra fat or bra bulge; and even the stomach areas causing belly pooch, love handles, or muffin top. These uses are considered “off-label” or experimental and have not been studied or approved by the FDA.
Depending on your treatment area and the amount of fat targeted, there will be multiple injection sites. You will most likely have some swelling, tenderness, or bruising around the injection sites under your chin for a few days to a few weeks. These common side effects are temporary and should subside within a few weeks. As with any treatment, each patient is different and their physical responses will vary.

Common Uses For Kybella Photo COMMON KYBELLA USES

Kybella is used to target the submental fullness of excess fat beneath the chin that creates a "double chin." It destroys the fat cells under your chin to improve your profile. Kybella is the synthetic form of deoxycholic acid found naturally in your body. Once injected, fat cells under the chin area are broken down and absorbed by your body, never to return again. In the US, the only approved treatment targets the fat under the chin; however, there is a growing culture of off-label treatments in other countries. These unapproved treatment zones include bra and underarm fat (both front and back), small belly pooches, inner knee fat, banana roll (lower buttock fatty folds), back bulges, and flanks. The thought in these countries is "if you can pinch it, you can treat".
