About Kybella

Even a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area will cause the appearance of a "double chin" that may be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) may be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Las Vegas, NV area aesthetic physician Dr. Garry Lee is happy to offer a new technique to reduce neck fat at Look Younger MD. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical option for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid that acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it has been injected beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate, so you are able to enjoy your new, slender profile and defined jawline for years to come.

Ideal Candidates

The best patients for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects stubborn areas of fat that cannot be removed with common weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the right option for your goals. 

Procedure Technique

Kybella is done during an in-office appointment. Dr. Lee will may apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, after the skin is clean. We also offer nitrous oxide sedation to allow our patients to feel more relaxed during their treatment. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes a few small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may require one treatment to get to their desired look, while some may want a few treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Look Younger MD.

What to Expect

Injections of Kybella don't require anesthesia, so you are allowed to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your daily activities. You may notice temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling below your chin, although this should not last longer than a couple of days. Call Look Younger MD immediately if you are noticing any unusual side effects, including facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the cells left over can grow larger, so you need to maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and slimmer and your profile will be more defined.
