How Does Kybella Work?
Kybella is a synthetic form of Deoxycholic Acid, which is a molecule our bodies produce to break down dietary fat. When injected locally (currently only FDA approved for under the chin) it basically makes the fat cells explode, leaving free fatty acids floating around. Our bodies can then process those fatty acids and eliminate them from the body.*
Patients are often worried about “loose skin” after treatment with Kybella. Even though Kybella is only approved for submental fat reduction, we’re seeing a rebound in skin elasticity and tightening after treatment. The theory is that the inflammation caused by disrupting the fat cell starts the process of neocollagenesis (I.E. building new collagen). So the final result is both fat loss and improvement in lax skin.*

Preparing For Kybella
Kybella is a non-surgical procedure, so little preparation is required. We recommend scheduling your procedure well ahead of any planned events. It’s also advisable to wash your face thoroughly before arriving at your appointment. Additionally, avoid taking ibuprofen and/or aspirin to prevent bruising.
When you arrive for your Kybella treatment, you’ll first have the treatment area cleansed and swabbed with alcohol. Then a treatment grid will be placed under the chin on neck region to aid your Kybella injection specialist as they administer the injections. Once the grid is in place, you’ll be provided an ice pack for comfort before and after injections. Your provider will make the injections according to the grid pattern. After all the injections have been made, another ice pack will be applied to the treatment area.
There is no real recovery required following Kybella, however, significant swelling immediately post procedure is expected. The swelling can be reduced by applying a cold pack and compression wraps.

How many treatments will I need?
The average patient needs 2-3 vials per treatment with 2-3 total treatments. (I.E. a total of 4-9 vials) If a patient requires more than this for optimal treatment, I would suggest starting treatment with CoolSculpting to first “debulk” the area. Once the majority of fat is no longer there, we would then use Kybella to truly contour the jawline.
How long will I be swollen?
Most patients report noticeable swelling for 1-3 days following treatment then mild (only noticeable to them) swelling for 1-2 weeks. The degree of swelling usually depends on the number of vials needed during treatment and how much fat is in the area.
What are the side effects?
Because Kybella is an injected treatment, side effects such as bruising, bleeding, and tenderness may occur. Patients often reports feeling a slight “numbness” when they touch the area for 2-4 weeks after treatment. Swelling varies from patient to patient, but it’s best to assume that you will have significant swelling for the first couple of days. There is one potential side effect that has only occurred during the clinical studies, which was a crooked smile that lasted 6 months. This happened before the treatment grid protocol existed which serves as a guideline for the “safe zone” of treatment.
