Kybella San Diego

Kybella is a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies that, when used in treatment, improves moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as "submental fullness" or "double chin". Kybella helps with the reduction of submental fullness. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella is able to permanently obliterate the fat cells which can change the contour of your jawline and give you a drastically younger and more fit appearance. Kybella can reduce excess fat in many areas of the body: abdomen, arms, back, jowls, neck, shoulders, thighs and stubborn lower stomach areas. It provides body contouring results that are natural and seamless in a non-invasive procedure.

Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment that was created to destroy fat cells with the purpose to eliminate double chin, also known as submental fullness.

Kybella is a non-surgical injection treatment to improve chin and jawline contour. Following treatment with Kybella, the fat cells in the targeted area are permanently dissolved and can no longer store or accumulate fat. The FDA clinical trials show that the results achieved with Kybella are permanent and will last as long as there are no significant changes to your lifestyle. Therefore, once you reach a desired therapeutic outcome, you should not need further treatments.

What are the Benefits of Kybella?

Here are some of the benefits of Kybella treatments, as delivered at Malone Facial Plastic Surgery:

  • Effective in destroying fat deposits under the chin
  • Quick procedure, often less than a half an hour

Am I a Candidate for Kybella?

The best candidates for Kybella in San Diego are people who are physically healthy, who are not pregnant or nursing and who are at least 18 years old. Prior to your treatment, it is best to avoid medications and supplements that can increase bruising. We recommend that you avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications such as Motrin and Ibuprofen, aspirin, and Vitamin E supplements for two weeks prior to your treatment.

What are the Risks?

Common side effects of Kybella include swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, itching, numbness or pain at the injection site.

What is the Recovery Like?

There may be temporary discomfort, itchiness and redness at the injection site. You can use an ice pack over the swollen area. Swelling usually disappears within 48 hours. You should avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol and exposure to the sun for the first 24 hours after your treatment.
