Kybella, an alternative to liposuction or surgery for nonsurgical chin fat reduction.
Kybella is a popular option for nonsurgical fat reduction in the submental area of the neck. Its advantages include rapid recovery, ambulatory treatment, and results! For those bothered by excess submental fullness and who do not want surgery, this is an effective nonsurgical option. The change begins immediately. Results are reevaluated at monthly(30 day) intervals.
This patient is shown with typical pretreatment markings made in the submental region prior to Kybella treatment. These markings determine the exact placement of the Kybella injections and the total dose of Kybella that needs to be injected to achieve a result.
Kybella destroys fat cells. Chemically, it is identical to deoxycholic acid (a substance your body makes naturally) which helps absorb fats. The drug acts by destroying the fat cell’s membrane, causing it to burst. What remains of the fat cell is absorbed back into the body via normal metabolic pathways.
Results are long-lasting since the fat cells are actually destroyed. In studies, patients saw the changes last at least two years (This was the duration of the study)
