Kybella® Before & After


Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets fat cells on the submental area. Because it eliminates the cells, the results last for years. However, patients should note that the treatment can have some side effects, such as swelling or bruising. However, most patients able to return to work within one or two days.

A topical numbing cream applied to the skin one hour before the treatment. This helps to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. A grid then drawn on the submental region and a small amount of Kybella injected into the predetermined injection sites. This procedure usually takes 20 minutes, and patients can return home afterward.

Kybella has approved for the submental region, but many providers have had success using it in other areas. Some providers have used Kybella in bra rolls, arms, inner thighs, and even the outer thighs. While the results of this procedure may not be as dramatic as those of other procedures, they can significantly improve the contour of the submental region.

While Kybella may cause a slight swelling in the area of injection, the side effects are mild and generally disappear after a few days. In general, patients should see full results after two to three weeks. While serious complications are extremely rare, patients should consult with a board-certified physician to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

What To Expect

The Science Behind Your Confidence.

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment used to reduce submental fullness or unwanted fat underneath the chin. While in the past men and women needed invasive procedures like liposuction to treat this fullness, Kybella® allows our patients to reduce the fat underneath the chin permanently without any cutting, anesthesia, or lengthy recovery period. Kybella® uses a specially formulated solution that, when injected into the treated areas, melts away targeted fat cells which are then naturally eliminated from the body. With just two to four Kybella® treatments, patients can contour their jawline and reduce the appearance of their “double chin.”
