As with most products and services that we provide at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, I personally have had this done to test the efficacy and side effects for myself. Our philosophy is that if it doesn’t work on us first, then we don’t carry that product or perform that service. You can rest assured that all of our products and services definitely work because we have tried them first and liked them. I found KYBELLA® to be easily done and tolerated with moderate early swelling for about 10 days and mild numbness for 3-4 weeks. It definitely reduces the fat. For most patients, they will require at least two treatments and sometimes more. If you have submental fullness (double chin), come see us and we have several options to help you.
KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called submental fat, or “double chin.”
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps to breakdown and reabsorb fat that leads to destruction of fat cells. Those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again.
It is best to seek a consultation with a KYBELLA® trained physician and together you can decide if it is a good choice. If you have submental fullness (double chin), ask your doctor about KYBELLA®. If you have an infection under the chin, you should defer treatment until the infection is gone.
Be sure to tell your physician about all of your medical conditions and all medications (including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements), especially if you:
KYBELLA® has been in a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies and over 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA®.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. KYBELLA® can cause trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness. These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects.
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including the number of treatments based on your chin profile goals. Obviously, a greater result requires more treatments. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. For severe cases, up to 6 treatment sessions may be given at least one month apart.
KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells and once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Once the goal is obtained, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.
