Kybella is an injectable formulated to melt away fat. This revolutionary treatment has been designed specifically for the treatment of a double chin, which is usually treated with traditional or laser liposuction. However, with its recent approval by the FDA to treat chin fat, Kybella brings many benefits to Fort Lauderdale and Miami patients who would like to improve the appearance of their chin and neck with no down time.
Kybella ® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is something naturally produced in our own body. Deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps absorb fat cells. Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat, Kybella destroys fat cells getting rid of unwanted double chin fat.
How long will Kybella ® results last?
After the series of treatments for your double chin, and your aesthetic goals are achieved, most patients in our Fort Lauderdale office do not require re-treatment. The destruction of fat cells with Kybella ® is permanent and, once destroyed, the fat cells can no longer accumulate further fat.
