Kybella®: Smooth Away Small Unwanted Curves Just About Anywhere!
Kybella® is an advanced injectable designed to target and destroy fat. The first injectable treatment that specifically targets submental fat—otherwise known as the double chin—we now know that Kybella®’s fat-fighting power need not be limited only to the chin! In fact, this state-of-the-art injectable can minimize small pockets of excess fatty tissue just about anywhere you want to smooth away small, unwanted bulges!
So how does Kybella® do it? Kybella® harnesses the power of a substance known as deoxycholic acid that your body produces naturally to remove dietary fat. When formulated as Kybella® and injected directly into specific fat cells, deoxycholic acid destroys the cell membrane holding the cell together. Once the fat cells is destroyed, it is safely and painlessly reabsorbed by the body, leaving you with a smooth, more shapely physique*!
Kybella® works specifically to correct small tissue defects almost anywhere on the body, but is most effective along the jowels, back (for bra fat/upper back rolls), upper arms above the breast, and knees. It is not appropriate for individuals seeking to address large areas of excess fatty tissue such as the abdomen or flanks; however, it is an excellent way to smooth and optimize the results of other types of body contouring procedures such as liposuction. Most patients will require a series of 2-4 treatments spaced about 6 weeks apart for optimal results.
Kybella® is FDA-approved to target submental fat, or the build-up of fatty tissue at the root of the so-called double-chin. However, it is both safe and legal to use Kybella® “off-label” to minimize the appearance of fatty tissue in other areas of the body under the guidance of an experienced Board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Gary Motykie.
*Individual results may vary. Fat reduction is never permanent. Kybella® can destroy fat cells, but remaining fat cells can continue to grow and expand.
