How Does KYBELLA® Work?

KYBELLA® was approved by the FDA in April of 2015 for the treatment of submental (under chin) fat. KYBELLA® contains deoxycholic acid, a synthetic version of a natural compound found within the human body. When injected into the submental fat, the acid breaks down the fat molecules, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue unharmed. The damaged fat cells are naturally metabolized by the body, resulting in a steady improvement to your chin’s appearance over time.

Am I a Good Candidate for KYBELLA®?

You are a good candidate for KYBELLA® if you have excessive fat below the chin that will not respond to diet and exercise. KYBELLA® can be a good fit for patients seeking to improve their profile without the use of surgery. The ideal candidate for the procedure is a non-smoking adult with relatively good skin laxity.

More severe under-chin fat may need to be addressed with surgical alternatives. Dr. Craig can assess your concerns and customize a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?*

KYBELLA® is done in a short in-office visit by Dr. Craig himself. The treatment area is cleansed, marked and prepared for injection. The amount of time your treatment will take varies on the severity of your condition. In most cases, you can expect to be in and out of your appointment within the hour.

What Results Will I See?*

Noticeable results from KYBELLA® should become evident about 6 weeks post-treatment. Gradual improvement will continue as your body naturally metabolizes unwanted fat cells. While some patients can get the results they want after just one session, most patients need between 2-4 treatments to achieve their desired outcome.

Once existing fat below the chin is gone, it’s gone for good. However, new fat cells can form at any time. Maintaining healthy lifestyle choices can prolong the outcome of your KYBELLA® treatment indefinitely.

Is There Any Downtime?

KYBELLA® doesn’t have any needed downtime. Patients can plan their KYBELLA® treatment in between a lunch break or while running errands. Most patients experience mild to moderate swelling, redness, and tenderness around the injection site for the first few days following treatment.
