  • Is a nonsurgical, 15- to 20-minute in-office treatment session

The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

The Kybella Treatment

When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

KYBELLA™ is typically given in a 15- to 20-minute in-office treatment session. Dr. Bapna will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.

You and Dr. Bapna will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment based on the amount of submental fullness you have and your treatment goals. Together, you will decide the treatment plan that is right for you.

Many patients treated with KYBELLA™ experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments (spaced two months apart). Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve results. Once your chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with KYBELLA™ again.

Prior to administrating KYBELLA™, Dr. Bapna may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. Dr. Bapna may also suggest you take an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.

What to Expect After Your Kybella Treatment

As with other injectable treatments, you may experience side effects with KYBELLA™. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. For most patients, downtime was minimal and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. When scheduling treatments, keep your social plans and work commitments in mind.

KYBELLA™ can also be used in other areas to dissolve fat. Common areas include the abdomen, “banana roll” (between the buttocks and thighs), around the knees, and the bra fat.
