Are you a good candidate?
Kybella is idea for adult patients that have significant submental fullness due to “chin fat” (aka the appearance of a “double chin”) but are not prepared for the social downtime of cosmetic surgery.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA approved prescription medication that is used to improve the appearance of submental fat. It is deoxycholic acid which is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body to help digest the fat in our diets. It is injected directly to the chin area to cause the destruction of fat cells.
Are there any side effects?
There have been thousands of patients treated worldwide with Kybella and over twenty clinical studies. The reported side effects include achiness in the injection site as well as swelling and bruising.
How often will you need treatments?
Results do vary. Each treatment is personalized between you and Dr. Cory Lawler, but most patients see substantial results with two to four treatments. These treatments can be administered with a minimum of four weeks between injections. The really great news is that once the cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate fat! Once you and Dr. Lawler have reached your desired result, you will not likely need to be treated again.
