Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment specifically designed to target excess fat under the chin and upper neck. It is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that breaks down fat. When targeted fat cells are destroyed, they begin to break down and are eliminated over a 4 week period. The most common side effects are temporary swelling, pain, bruising, and numbness. These symptoms typically resolve 2-4 weeks after treatment.
Dr. Mirabile, Dr. Hsu and our nurse injectors will evaluate your profile and anatomy to see if Kybella is an appropriate treatment for you. Each patient will receive a customized treatment plan, usually consisting of 2-3 treatments, with each treatment occurring 4-6 weeks apart.
