KYBELLA® is an FDA approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your chin and jaw profile. Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Dr Ridha will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Kybella might be right for you if:
- You’re unhappy or self-conscious with fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
What can I expect?
You will go into the procedure with a detailed plan created by yourself and Dr. Ridha. The procedure is unique to every patient, but most include the following steps.
Injections of Kybella typically take less than 15 minutes. The number of injections required depends on your unique neck anatomy. The under chin area is iced then an anesthetic is injected to make the treatment more comfortable for you.
During the procedure, Dr. Ridha uses a thin needle to inject Kybella in a grid like pattern under your chin.
Post treatment you will continue to ice the area and will likely experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Results are usually apparent 6-8 weeks after your second treatment and treatments can be done as often as every 4 weeks until desired results are obtained.
