Kybella aids in the removal of resistant fat in a specific region. It is most frequently applied to lessen the appearance of submental fat, also referred to as a “double chin”. The fat cells in the injected locations are diminished by this injection, and over time, the body gradually absorbs them again.
Kybella is typically a recommended treatment for individuals who are genetically predisposed to having a double chin but don’t want surgery. Additionally, Kybella is a great alternative for bariatric surgery or liposuction candidates. Patients who are expecting, nursing, or who have had face surgery in the past shouldn’t take Kybella.

Kybella dissolves fat in the desired area of your body. There are two main components of Kybella—synthetic compounds called sodium deoxycholate and deoxycholic acid that function naturally in your body. These chemicals link to your fat cells and gradually reduce their size when injected into troublesome fat tissue. This promotes more attractive skin on your face (or other parts of your body) by allowing other necessary fats and fluids to pass through locations where stubborn fat used to be. The best part is, results are permanent!
Most people receiving Kybella treatments don’t encounter any negative side effects. However, the typical side effects, if any, can include bruising and swelling in the treated area, which can persist for a few days following the procedure.
