2017 HOT TREND | KYBELLA®

 1 week ago

written by Denton Watumull, MD


Kybella is the newest non-surgical procedure that will remove your excess chin fat and have you back to work the next day.  This FDA approved new injectable treatment targets stubborn excess fat around the chin and has minimal down time. Sometimes, diet and exercise just isn’t enough.

Why is Kybella a Hot Trend?

  •       Non-invasive – that means no surgery!
  •       Quick, in-office treatment sessions
  •       Long-lasting results

How Kybella Works

Kybella breaks down excess fat cells over a period of time; an average patient requires two to four treatments to reach their cosmetic goals.  The treatment area is injected with a natural compound in the body called deoxycholic acid that breaks down the extra fat cells. When this process occurs, the body naturally removes the excess cells over a period of time, which results in a natural more defined chin. Remember, this treatment is for targeting fat tissue only – if you suffer from loose skin around the chin, Kybella may not be the best option for you.

Who Performs The Procedure?

It is best to find a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform the Kybella procedure. They should first draw a plan by mapping the fat tissue volume on the skin, guiding the injection pattern for the procedure. Then, a series of evenly spread injections are administered over a number of sessions determined by the surgeon.

What To Expect With Recovery

Swelling, bruising, and numbness is expected but is easily managed and gone within the first couple of days. The average patient typically requires three to four treatments to see visible results.
