Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that can eliminate fat to reduce the appearance of a double chin. At Newport Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer this treatment under the guidance of Dr. Go, one of the most highly respected surgeons in Costa Mesa, Newport Beach, Irvine, and the surrounding communities of CA.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable treatment composed of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule naturally found in the body that aids in the breakdown of fat. When injected under the chin, Kybella® can eliminate fat to address submental fullness, commonly referred to as a double chin. After injection, Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells under the chin to provide lasting results and enhance the profile of the chin.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost?
The cost of Kybella® can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
How is Kybella® Administered?
Kybella® is administered through a number of injections into and around the area under the chin. The injection process is generally well-tolerated, and we offer a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The Kybella® treatment takes less than 30 minutes to complete, which is why it and many similar injectable treatments are referred to as “lunchtime” or “lunch break” treatments.
What is Recovery Like After a Kybella® Treatment?
After a Kybella® treatment, patients may notice mild bruising, swelling, or redness around the injection site. These effects are common, and typically fade within a few days. Despite these side effects, patients will be able to return to work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. There is no downtime required after Botox®.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?
You will begin to notice results from Kybella® within a few weeks of treatment, as the formula begins to eliminate fat cells under the chin. It can take up to a month or longer for the full results to become visible. We typically recommend a series of Kybella® treatments, spaced about six weeks apart, for optimal results. Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells under the chin, so the results can be incredibly long-lasting if a patient maintains healthy diet and exercise habits.
