Kybella is an injectable treatment for reducing fat under the chin. This treatment contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule essential for fat breakdown and absorption. As soon as Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin, fat cells are destroyed and metabolized by the body. The treatment can be tailored to address other small areas of unwanted fat, including the jowls, bra fat, and inner thighs, although its primary use remains to target submental fat.

Kybella in Melville, NY, is suitable for adults with moderate to severe submental fat. Ideal candidates prefer a non-surgical solution and have realistic expectations about the outcomes. Results are typically seen after two to four sessions, spaced about a month apart. The effects of Kybella are long-lasting, as the treated fat cells are permanently removed. It is important for patients to maintain a stable weight in order to ensure lasting results.

Benefits of Kybella


A good candidate for Kybella is an adult with moderate to severe submental fat who prefers a non-surgical approach. The ideal candidate should be in good health overall and have realistic expectations of the results. Those with infections in the treatment area or certain medical conditions may not be suitable candidates.

Results from Kybella are typically noticeable after two to four treatment sessions, with each session spaced about a month apart. Full results are often seen after the final treatment as the body gradually metabolizes the destroyed fat cells.

The results of Kybella are long-lasting because the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed. Patients should maintain a stable weight to ensure the longevity of their results. Fat cells cannot regenerate once they have been removed.

Kybella treatment has minimal downtime. Bruising, swelling, redness, and numbness are common side effects at the injection site, which usually subside within a few days. Some patients may experience temporary firmness or hardness in the treatment area.

Before the treatment, avoid medications that thin your blood, such as aspirin, to reduce the risk of bruising. Apply ice packs to reduce swelling after treatment and follow your provider’s specific aftercare instructions. It’s also recommended to avoid strenuous activities for a few days post-treatment.

During a Kybella treatment, your provider may apply a topical anesthetic and clean the treatment area to reduce discomfort. The Kybella injections will then be administered in a grid-like pattern under your chin. It usually takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete the procedure. You may feel slightly burning or stinging during the injections, but this is usually well-tolerated.
