Overview

Bay Area Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer the latest advancement in minimally invasive fat melting for that unsightly, unpleasant, and dreaded double chin. Welcome, Kybella! Made from deoxycholic acid, the FDA-approved medication is injected directly into the fat beneath the chin by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Gray. Kybella works by destroying the fat cells to diminish fat and prevent fat from accumulating in the future. Depending on the amount of fat present, most patients need between 2 – 4 treatments to effectively get rid of the appearance of the double chin.

Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.

Kybella FAQs

Other Areas?

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and a plastic surgeon will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.

Restrictions?

Before receiving Kybella injections, the doctor will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.

How It Works?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot return.
