Kybella Fat Injections for Chin / Neck Fat

Kybella chin / neck fat injections are available in Las Vegas by Kybella trained board certified Dermatologist, Robert Strimling, MD.  Our Dr. Strimling was one of the first Cosmetic Surgeons in the country to use Kybella.

Kybella (deoxycholic acid, formally known as ATX-101) is an FDA approved non-surgical injectable treatment solution for reducing moderate to severe upper neck / under chin (submental) fat, otherwise know as a “dobule chin”. (Kybella submental fat injections were FDA approved in April, 2015.) However, Kybella may also be used almost anywhere that excess fat is undesired.

Submental fullness (i.e. “double chin”) is a common yet undertreated aesthetic facial condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Causes include aging, genetics and weight gain. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, and can make you look older and heavier than you are. If you are bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey, 67% of people are bothered by submental fullness.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

How does Kybella Work?

When injected into fatty tissues, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Because Kybella preferentially targets fat cells, surrounding non-fatty tissues are largely unaffected. Kybella results are long-lasting. Kybella does not affect loose, sagging skin or underlying muscle bands that may also be contributing the aging neck. However, adjunct Ultherapy neck lifting or Exilis RF skin tightening can improve these contributing, unwanted signs of aging.

How is Kybella Administered?

Kybella is administered via a series of injections into the under chin fat at each 15 to 20 minute treatment session. Usually two (2), but possibly, one to four vials of Kybella per treatment session times two (2) to four (4) monthly to bimonthly treatment sessions is recommended for successful, satisfactory results. ~80% of patients treated with Kybella reported satisfaction with their results.

For most patients, downtime is minimal and worst after the first treatment. Side effects include, but are not limited to: injection site swelling (edema / induration), bruising (hematoma), pain, numbness and redness (erythema). Any side effects are temporary, usually lasting up to a few days, but occasionally up to a week or more.

Kybella is contraindicated in the presence of infection at injection site. Other contraindications include pregnancy and nursing. To minimize bruising, avoid aspirin and aspirin containing products for at least one week prior Kybella injections. Also, avoid ibuprofen and related medications for 3 days prior Kybella injections. Avoid other blood thinners per your prescribing physician’s recommendation. Otherwise, no special pre-injection preparation is necessary. Ice / cold packs and ibuprofen may be used after injections as needed.
