Kybella

 

 

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable which is FDA approved to reduce the fat in the neck which contributes to the appearance of a double chin.  

 

The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, an enzyme which breakdowns fat cellts.  When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® dissolves fat cells which the body then absorbs.  

 

The best candidate for Kybella™ is someone bothered by fat under the chin who does not want to have a surgical procedure to remove it.  

 

If you think you'd like to get Kybella, please schedule a consultation.  I like to review the risks and benefits of this procedure carefully prior to the day of the procedure so that you will have realistic expectations and be happy with the results.  You can also discuss the experience with one of my employees who has had this proceudre done.  The injections themselves are associated with some swelling, so you may want to schedule your procedure on a Friday afternoon, giving you a couple of days to recover before the start of the new week!

A vial of Kybella costs $600.  View our current promotional pricing.

 

Injections can cause discomfort, so we offer the use of a topical anesthetic at no additional charge.  

 

Comprehensive information about Kybella  is available from Allergan.
