What is Kybella?


KYBELLA® is the first and only injectable product proven to reduce fat under the chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected beneath the chin, KYBELLA destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Dr. Chip Cole and the rest of the talented staff at OCULUS Plastic Surgery have a vast amount of experience in utilizing KYBELLA to help patients in Atlanta, GA reduce the appearance of a "double chin."

How is Kybella Performed?

During each treatment, patients can expect to receive a series of small injections under their chin. Since everyone’s profile is different, the exact number and placement of these injections will vary from person to person. Most patients will require three treatments, at least one month apart, in order to obtain the best possible result.

The KYBELLA procedure is mildly uncomfortable and requires little to no downtime. It is not uncommon to experience bruising, swelling, numbness, and/or hardening at the injection site, though these side effects typically subside within 5 – 7 days. The early reaction (2 – 3 days) causes a “jiggly” feeling similar to a water balloon as the fat cell membranes start breaking down. This fully subsides as the body absorbs this fluid, similar to a bruise.
