Kybella, the recently FDA-approved injectable for submental fullness (fat below the chin), is now available at South Coast Plastic Surgery.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. You and your doctor will decide how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, retreatment is not expected.
During clinical trials carried out prior to its approval, participants noticed a gradual improvement in the definition of their chin after several months using Kybella. There was also an overall improvement in the facial profile. These results are typically permanent, but may change if the patient gains a significant amount of weight.
