Kybella Q & A

Elevation

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a revolutionary treatment that permanently eliminates fat cells in the area beneath your chin, often referred to as a double chin or submental fullness. It’s an effective option for improving your profile and can address moderate to severe fat deposits in this troublesome area.

Significant research has gone into developing Kybella, and over 1,600 men and women took part in more than 20 clinical trials. It’s currently the only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for fat reduction in this area of the body.

 

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is delivered via multiple injections in the area beneath your chin. The medication is formulated from deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the human body. That substance works to help break down and absorb fat in the foods you eat.

When injected into the area beneath your chin, deoxycholic acid performs that same function, destroying fat cells and preventing them from storing fat. Those cells are then processed by and eliminated from your body.

 

Will I need more than one treatment?

Your treatment path depends on the volume of fat that needs to be removed. For many men and women, results are noticeable a few weeks after their first treatment. Others don’t notice significant improvement until they’ve had two to four treatments.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Griner will let you know how many treatments he thinks you’ll need to achieve your desired results. You can have as many as six treatments in total, spaced out at least a month apart.

 

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

The best way to know if Kybella is right for you is to schedule a consultation. When you meet with Dr. Griner, be prepared to share the details of your personal health history, including any medications or supplements you take.

These conditions may indicate Kybella is not a good treatment option for you:

  • Recent face or neck surgery
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Medications that affect your blood clotting ability
  • Medical conditions in your neck or lower face

Kybella is also not a good treatment choice for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
