Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment specifically for targeting excess fat under your chin and your upper neck. It is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that breaks down fat. When the targeted fat cells are destroyed, these cells are broken down and eliminated over a period of approximately 4 weeks. The most common side effects are temporary swelling, pain, bruising, and numbness, which usually resolve 2-4 weeks after treatment. Results may vary.
Dr. Hsu and our nurse injectors will evaluate your profile and anatomy to see if Kybella is an appropriate treatment for you. Each patient will receive a customized treatment plan, usually consisting of 2-3 treatments, with each treatment occurring 4-6 weeks apart.
