Kybella is a non-human, non-animal derived version of deoxycholic acid, which is a NATURALLY occurring enzyme found in all of us that helps breakdown fat and absorb it. Since April 2015, Kybella has been FDA-approved to treat double chins. This treatment is effective for drastically improving the facial profile by permanently eliminating submental fullness under the chin. The process sculpts small areas of fat and creates a small amount of inflammation that is associated with small amounts of skin tightening.
Kybella™ is used as an injection, much like Botox or Dermal Fillers (Juvederm, Belotero, Restylane), in the submental/“double chin” region to dissolve fat away and improve the overall contour of the neck and jawline. Traditional methods to treat excess fat in the neck and under the chin require liposuction and/or a neck lift.
Patients with consolidated fat deposits (AKA double chin) under the chin are great candidates for having Kybell™a. Because Kybella™ is not intended to remove skin, patients who have a lot of loose and hanging skin (“turkey neck”) are not good candidates for this procedure.
Kybella™ is a permanent fat dissolving solution to a heavy neck/jawline. Your results depend on the amount of excess fat you have under your chin. Most patients begin seeing results 2-4 weeks post-injection.
