KYBELLA® is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a non-surgical injection for reducing the small fat pad that can often occur under the chin. This product had been in development for ten years before becoming widely available for use. KYBELLA® contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your body. When injected into areas of excess fat under the chin, KYBELLA® destroys the targeted fat cells. Fat cells do not re-form in adults, so when they are gone they likely will not come back.

How is it done?
The areas of excess fat under your chin will be “mapped” for up to 50 tiny injections, depending on your needs. The skin in the treatment areas can be numbed with a local anesthetic to minimize any potential discomfort from the injections. At least two treatments are often necessary for the best possible results. Patients with larger amounts of excess fat may require additional treatments.
How long does it take?
KYBELLA® procedures typically last about one hour.
What is the downtime?
There is usually no need for an extensive recovery period after this treatment. Redness and swelling will go down within a few days. In fact, most individuals are able to resume normal daily routines within 24 to 48 hours.
How long does it last?
Since the KYBELLA® solution is designed to destroy the targeted fat cells, the results of this procedure may last a lifetime. With that in mind, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and to limit excessive weight fluctuations as much as possible in order to maximize the longevity of benefits from this advanced treatment.
