Kybella is a first-of-its-kind, FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that reduces submental fat — otherwise known as a double chin. Comprised of deoxycholic acid (a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down dietary fat in the body), Kybella selectively targets fat deposits beneath the chin that detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance. Dr. Jason Bloom was one of the first doctors in the world to offer Kybella, and he was also involved with the makers of Kybella since its inception and FDA approval. A customized treatment plan will be designed just for you to meet your specific needs and goals for the jawline, neck, and under-chin areas.

Dr. Jason Bloom on Kybella Injections

Dr. Bloom goes into depth on how Kybella treatment can dissolve fat beneath the chin to improve overall facial structure

How Kybella works

The deoxycholic acid that Kybella is made from is a synthetic form of bile acid that’s naturally produced by the body to help absorb fat from food. 

But when Kybella is used as an injectable treatment and is administered directly to the unwanted fat cells, it destroys them and makes it impossible for fat to ever be stored there again.

What’s left behind is then metabolized by the body over the course of a few weeks, and leaves the body through the lymphatic system. 

What happens during a Kybella treatment?

We will perform a thorough consultation and evaluation with you before creating your treatment plan so that we fully understand your aesthetic goals and so you are educated on the procedure.

On the day of your treatment, we will cleanse your skin, apply a topical numbing agent, and mark the treatment area with a dot grid to help guide your specialist. Approximately 10-50 injections will be administered.

Some patients report feeling “pressure” and “mild burning” during the injections, but overall the treatment is very tolerable. After the injections are complete, the treated area will be wrapped with a compression bandage.

Kybella treatments are typically spaced 1-2 months apart, and 2-4 sessions are generally recommended for the best results.

Recovery and results

Kybella patients can typically go about their normal day after treatment. Common side effects include mild burning, swelling, redness, and numbness in the treatment area. Bruising may last for up to two weeks. Swelling is usually at its worst 24 hours after treatment, and when it has fully subsided, the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed. It’s important for those who are interested in Kybella to understand that the results appear gradually, and may also require multiple treatments.
