KYBELLA is a new non-surgical FDA approved injectable treatment for reducing double chins. Unlike other treatments, KYBELLA targets and destroys fat cells under the chin, resulting in a noticeable decrease in fullness. KYBELLA is made of a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid, which helps break down and absorb dietary fat.
Perfection Plastic Surgery is pleased to be one of the first practices in Tucson, AZ, to offer KYBELLA to our patients. KYBELLA is a safe and effective alternative for those who are not interested in surgery or are not good candidates for liposuction.
Is KYBELLA Safe?
Clinical studies have shown KYBELLA to be a safe and effective treatment for reducing excess fat under the chin. This is FDA approved treatment for adults.
KYBELLAis made of a naturally occurring molecule that helps to break down submental fat cells. When injected into the fatty tissue beneath the chin, KYBELLA destroys the fat cells. These fat cells are then eliminated by the body, resulting in a noticeable reduction in the appearance of a double chin.
KYBELLA is considered safe for most people. The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, and redness at the injection site. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve on their own within a few days.

The Incredible Work of KYBELLA
KYBELLA works by destroying excess fat cells. These fat cells are then eliminated by the body, resulting in a noticeable reduction in the appearance of a double chin.
Facial muscle weakness is one of the reasons people have a double chin. KYBELLA can target this problem by destroying the fat cells and allowing the facial muscles to work more effectively.
If deoxycholic acid is injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA can help to break down and absorb the fat cells. Afterward, lymphatic and circulatory systems in the body will remove the destroyed fat cells. This will result in a significant reduction of fullness under the chin.
Here are the benefits of choosing KYBELLA for your treatment:
- Non-surgical: KYBELLA is a non-surgical treatment that does not require any downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the injections
- No anesthesia or sedation required:KYBELLA does not require any anesthesia or sedation, so you can drive yourself to and from the appointment.
- Quick and easy: The KYBELLA injections take only a few minutes to administer. Most people need three to five treatments, spaced about one month apart.
- Long-lasting results: The treatment destroys fat cells, so the results are long-lasting. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat.
Minimal and Temporary Side Effects
Side effects may include swelling, bruising, and pain, but these are all temporary.
- Swelling: KYBELLA can cause swelling in the treatment area. This is usually temporary and will resolve on its own within a few days.
- Bruising: KYBELLA can also cause bruising in the treatment area.
- Pain: KYBELLA can cause pain at the injection site.
- Redness: KYBELLA can also cause redness in the treatment area.
- Numbness: KYBELLA treatment can cause numbness in the treatment area. These are all temporary side effects that will resolve on their own within a few days.
Things to Consider Before Undergoing Treatment
KYBELLA is not for everyone. You should not receive treatment if you:
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding: The effects of KYBELLA on a developing baby are unknown.
- Are allergic to deoxycholic acid: Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in KYBELLA. You should not receive treatment if you are allergic to it.
- Are under 18 years old: The safety and effectiveness of KYBELLA has not been established in children.
- Have a history or plan to undergo surgery: You should not undergo KYBELLA treatment if you have had or are planning to have surgery on your face, neck, or jaw; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or jaw; have had or are planning to have treatment for a condition called submental fullness.
- Have an infection in the treatment area: This may lead to a delay in your treatment schedule.
You should also tell your doctor if you are taking any blood thinners, such as aspirin or warfarin (Coumadin). You should also tell your doctor if you are taking any herbal supplements, such as St. John’s wort or ginseng. You should also tell your doctor if you have any medical conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, or heart disease.
KYBELLA is generally safe and effective, but there are some risks associated with the KYBELLA injections if you undergo treatment with a medical history.
There is also a risk of KYBELLA causing damage to the nerves that control facial muscles. This could result in facial muscle weakness or paralysis. There’s also a risk associated with the nerves that control swallowing, and can result in difficulty in swallowing or even choking. These are all rare but serious side effects of KYBELLA. If you experience any of these side effects, you should seek medical attention immediately.
Misconceptions About KYBELLA
One of the biggest misconceptions about KYBELLA is that it is a “fat burner.” KYBELLA does not burn fat. KYBELLA works by destroying fat cells. Once the remaining fat cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat.
KYBELLA is not a weight loss treatment. KYBELLA is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of a double chin. If you are looking for a weight loss treatment, KYBELLA treatment is not the right treatment for you. There are other treatments that can help you lose weight. Diet and exercise are the best way to lose weight and cut off unwanted fat. KYBELLA can help improve the appearance of a double chin, but it will not help you lose weight.
If you are considering KYBELLA for the treatment of a double chin, you should talk to your doctor to see if KYBELLA is right for you. Your doctor can help you understand the risks and benefits of KYBELLA and can help you make an informed decision about whether KYBELLA is right for you.
