Is KYBELLA® Only for Double Chins?

You’ve likely heard buzz about KYBELLA® – a revolutionary fat-reduction procedure designed to nix unwanted fat below the chin. Since the minimally-invasive injectable came on the market several years ago, it’s rapidly gained popularity among many patients suffering from diet and exercise resistant fat. While the treatment was initially aimed solely at targeting that dreaded double chin, we’re seeing positive results when used to treat other areas.

KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved injectable that utilizes deoxycholic acid (a substance found naturally in the body) to help the body break down and absorb fat cells. Clinical trials have shown a 5+ year expected duration when treating moderate to severe under-chin fullness. Further long-term testing still needs to be done to determine the longevity of the prescription medicine in other treatment areas.

At Dorner Plastic Surgery in Columbus, Ohio, we’re finding that many patients are seeking out KYBELLA® for other uses and they’re achieving highly-positive outcomes. KYBELLA® only takes a few minutes to administer and doesn’t require any downtime making it ideal for patients with busy lifestyles.

Some patients request Kybella treats for the areas above or below their bra bands.

Treatment areas may include*:

  • Bra Bulge
  • Inner/Outer Thighs
  • Flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Armpit Pooch
  • Banana Roll

KYBELLA® may take several weeks for results to become fully evident as your body melts away unwanted fat cells. Depending on the amount of fat being targeted, patients may need multiple treatments to achieve their desired goals. Most areas can be treated in six or less treatments, although some patients may require more depending on the amount of fat present.  Treatments are spaced 1-month apart.

It’s important to choose a skilled professional when opting for off-label treatments to minimize potential complications. Hundreds of KYBELLA® treatments have been administered at Dorner Plastic Surgery, all with successful outcomes. At your in-person consultation, the number of injections needed to address your aesthetic concerns will be estimated.
