Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat. Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin,” is a common yet under-treated condition affecting a broad range of overweight adults. Kybella is also effective in treating other areas that are prone to fat, such as the love handles and bra bulge.

How does Kybella® work?

is kybella® right for me?

Kybella’s® active ingredient is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, this molecule destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store fat and, if the desired look is achieved, more treatment is not required.
Kybella® is customized by the physician to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved profile. Those with reasonable expectations from the procedure, and who are in good general health, typically see the best results. Only a trained physician can help you truly determine if Kybella® is right for you.

Why does skin loose its ability to bounce back? Usually due to age. Simply put, as we age, our skin loses the factor that keeps it bouncy and flexible. Though sometimes, in cases of have great weight loss, the skin has been too strecthed out. Sagging skin can be anywhere on the body, but is usually most apparent along the jowls. Conversely, a pool of fat under the chin can also cause sagging and thus, give the appearance of bloating.

The banana roll is a horizontal pocket of fat found underneath the buttock that has a shape similar to that of a banana. You’ve probably noticed it poking out from the bottom of your swimsuit or underwear.

Kybella® is injected into the target area. Once inserted, the molecule destroys the fat cells making them incapable of storing fat again. Kybella® has also been used to treat other small areas of fat including the love handles, and bra/back fat. The banana roll is no exception. Now you can feel confident showing off your bottom!

Sometimes despite concerted efforts, there still remains one or two pesky areas that are particularly resistant to exercise. Including the bra bulge! Armpit or bra fat is the pocket of fat between the breasts and the arm. It usually presents itself on strapless dresses or tank tops.

The Good News: There is an injectable product to treat submental fat! Its main ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which simply put, breaks down fat. That’s why its have been so successful for years. When injected into the problem area, Kybella®  destroys fat cells. What’s more, once destroyed, fat cells can not store fat!
