Overview

Men and women alike love the fat reducing effects of Kybella injections. At our plastic surgery office in Denver, CO we can provide you with a revolutionary way to slim your neckline by decreasing the amount of fat under your chin without neck liposuction. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Manish Shah, may need to perform several treatment sessions before achieving the desired result, however, the outcome of those injections will bring you fabulously younger looking skin, and slimmer facial profile. When diet and exercise won't rid you of that dreaded "double chin," you can destroy that fat with deoxycholic acid, the main ingredient found in Kybella. Call today to schedule a consultation to see if this is an injectable that is right for you.

Procedure Technique

Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.

Before/After The Procedure

After cleaning the area, the doctor will inject Kybella into multiple sites under the patient’s chin. Most patients will begin to see visible results in 2 – 4 treatment sessions. Patients can have up to 6 treatment sessions with less than a month in between each session. After the treatment, patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness.

Kybella FAQs

Other Areas?

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and a plastic surgeon will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.

Restrictions?

Before receiving Kybella injections, the doctor will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.

How It Works?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot return.
