Kybella®

Treat Stubborn Fat Below the Chin, On The Back, and Other “Problem” Areas

Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells. It is an effective treatment option for “stubborn” fat that may not respond to diet or exercise, especially “double chins,” jowls, back fat, or other areas. Kybella is made from synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that breaks down fat.

Treatment with Kybella is quick and easy. When injected, Kybella immediately starts destroying the cells that store fat. The body’s natural healing process begins, and the cells are absorbed by the body. Within four to six weeks, a noticeable reduction in fat should begin to become visible.

Kybella can only be used in adults 18 and over.

Treatment Areas:

Double Chin
Bra Bulge
Jowls

Inner Thigh
Above The Knee
Banana Roll (Stubborn Buttock Fat)

Who Should Consider Kybella?

Kybella may be an effective treatment option for you if you are healthy and exercise regularly, but have areas of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise, particularly in the neck or chin. You may not be eligible if you’ve had neck or chin surgery previously. Kybella can be a preferred treatment option for both men and women. Our trained staff members can help you determine if Kybella is right for you.

What To Expect During Kybella Treatment

The treatment process begins with a consultation to evaluate your areas of concern. Our Kybella specialist will help you create a personalized treatment plan, typically consisting of multiple visits for treatment. Kybella is administered in a series of injections during each visit and each visit will be typically spaced about a month apart. Each treatment takes about 20 or 30 minutes.

There may be some swelling or bruising after treatment, but most patients can usually keep their daily routines without interruption. The number of treatments required will vary from patient to patient and with the area of the body being treated, to a maximum of six treatments.
