Kybella is a non-surgical injectable for reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.” The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. Using Kybella for treatment on areas other than the double chin is not approved or recommended.
At Wagner and Associates Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Consultant of Indianapolis we offer non-surgical double-chin reduction using Kybella
What Is Kybella?
The generic name of Kybella is deoxycholic acid. It is produced by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. The approval date by FDA through clinical trials is on 29 April 2015.
Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. The acid occurs naturally in our body and helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat.
Kybella is used to specifically improve the appearance and shape of double chin. Severe fat below the chin, also called submental fat, has always been a problem for many patients. However, it is not known if Kybella is safe and effective for use outside of the area below the chin.
What Kybella Brings to You
Treatment of double chin has traditionally involved surgery. Hardly any exercise could target submental fat effectively. Even dieting will not help in reducing double chins. Kybella, Deoxycholic acid works naturally to destroy fat cells, it is relatively safe. This is in contrast to liposuction, which is a surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, incisions, and downtime.
What to Expect After Your Kybella Treatment
There will be some swelling underneath the chin and along the jawline. This issue can take some time to subside. There may be some discomfort, but it can be managed with over the counter medication.
How Many Injections of Kybella is Required for a Treatment?
In general, patients will need a series of 12-20 injections per visit. A total of 3 visits might be required, with each visit spaced a month apart to allow the area to heal.
