HOW IT WORKS
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a simple, non-surgical injectable treatment for extra fat under the chin or “double chin”. It uses a natural acid that our bodies use to digest fat in the intestines. Kybella works by destroying the fat cells by digesting them so that they can no longer store fat in this area.
On the day of your procedure, you can drive yourself to and from the office. We will apply topical numbing cream on the area for 20 minutes. The Kybella injections take 5-10 minutes and begin working immediately. The amount of Kybella needed depends on the amount of fatty tissue under your chin.
There is no real “down-time” with this procedure. You will have some swelling and bruising for a couple of days to a week. You can apply make-up over the area the same day. You should avoid working out immediately after surgery but can resume your normal activities the next day. Gentle massaging of the treatment area several times a day can help relieve any tightness and swelling. You may take over the counter headache medications for discomfort after the injections. You can return to work as soon as you would like after your treatment.
Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after surgery.
It will take a few weeks for the swelling to go down and the results to start to show. Most patients require 2-4 treatments (scheduled at least 1 month apart) before they get optimal results but the majority of patients notice improvement after the second treatment. Before you know it, you will love how you look in the mirror with your new chin line! Individual results may vary.

With every treatment there are risks involved including bleeding and infection – but these risks are very rare with Kybella injections:
It is common to bruise after any injection. The needles are very small which can help decrease this risk. You can take Arnica Montana and use ice to decrease the bruising.
You may have some firm areas after the injections. Massaging and time will help the area become soft again.
Our faces and necks are not symmetrical and there is a chance of asymmetry after this procedure as well. Additional treatments can help decrease any asymmetry.
Injection near the mandibular nerve can cause facial muscle weakness or asymmetrical smile. This is usually temporary and very rarely can be permanent.
