What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is found in the body and aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat. When used as an injectable treatment, deoxycholic acid permanently disables fat cells and keeps them from accumulating or storing fat in the future. Kybella® is injected with a fine needle into the fatty tissue underneath the chin and is the first injectable of its kind.
What Causes Submental Fat?
A common condition that affects millions of men and women per year, submental fat can be caused by genetics, weight gain and the natural aging process. In a recent survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, it was reported that about 67 percent of people are dissatisfied with excess fat underneath their chins. When surgical procedures are not an ideal option, Kybella® can restore more attractive contours to the lower face without disrupting your normal activities.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?
The first and only injectable approved by the FDA for the correction of moderate to severe fat underneath the chin, Kybella® offers several benefits to patients, including:
- Fast treatment that can be accommodated into most busy schedules
- An immediate return to normal activities
- A low-risk treatment with minimal side effects
- A formulation that is easily recognized and processed by the body
- Real, long-lasting results that can be easily maintained with a healthy diet and exercise
Are There Any Side Effects?
As with any injectable treatment, Kybella® may result in slight bruising, swelling, redness or itching at injection sites, which should subside after a day or so. More serious complications are rare and will be discussed with you along with any other relevant safety information during your consultation with Dr. Rao or Dr. Noor.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most patients achieve optimal results after two to four treatments, but Dr. Rao, Dr. Noor and our medical team will create a treatment plan for you based on your aesthetic goals and skincare needs.
