What is Kybella?

Kybella is a liquid composed of deoxycholic acid that is used to address excess fat under the chin (submental fullness). Kybella is a non-invasive option that is ideal for patients who are not interested in submittal liposuction. The average patient requires two vials of Kybella injected during two separate sessions spaced approximately eight weeks apart. Patients require one to six sessions depending on the extent of their double chin.

How Is a Kybella Injected?

Dr. Teotia first places a topical numbing medicine on the area of concern. She then places a temporary tattoo to delineate the Kybella injection sites. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is injected. After waiting the appropriate period of time for the lidocaine to work, the Kybella is injected into the fatty tissue under the chin. Ice and a compression bandage are then placed on the submental region.

What to Expect after the Kybella Injection

Following the injection, you are likely to experience mild discomfort and possible bruising. Most patients have swelling during the first week. Head elevation, compression and frequent icing help reduce the post-injection swelling. Other common side effects include temporary numbness, lumps, and skin redness.
