Kybella

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

•  You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness 

•  You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are 

•  You don’t want to have surgery 

•  You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away 

 

HOW KYBELLA® WORKS

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

How many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Dr. Orafu will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments.

Will I need time to recover?

After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.

What are the possible side effects of KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies). In clinical studies, nerve injury in the jaw resolved on its own in a median of 44 days (range of 1 to 298 days), and trouble swallowing resolved on its own in a median of 3 days (range of 1 to 81 days).

The most common side effects occur in the treatment area and include:

•  Swelling 

•  Bruising 

•  Pain 

•  Numbness 

•  Redness 

•  Areas of hardness 

Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.
