What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved medicine used as an injection like botox or fillers (Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane etc)… in the submental/“double chin” region to dissolve fat away and improve the overall contour of the neck and jawline. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule that dissolves fat, which your body then flushes out. Traditional methods to treat excess fat in the neck and under the chin require liposuction and/or a neck lift. Not all patients are candidates for Kybella and safe surgical procedures performed by Dr. Capone are still necessary.

What does the treatment feel like?

Most individuals have slight discomfort similar to other injectables for a brief period of time after the injection. This resolves relatively quickly. Patients experience different degrees of swelling, but it is a normal part of the healing process.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Patients receive multiple Kybella injections (like Botox or fillers) in a single treatment. Most patients generally require 3-4 treatment sessions about one month apart to see their optimal results.

When will I see results from my Kybella treatment?

Your results depend on the amount of excess fat you have under your chin. The first few days are hallmarked by swelling and possible bruising. Most patients begin seeing positive results as quickly as 3-4 weeks post injection.
