Kybella® is a nonsurgical solution for the treatment of moderate to severe fat deposits underneath the chin. The first FDA-approved treatment of its kind, Kybella assists in the breaking apart and emulsification of submental fullness (double chin), helping produce a slim and firm appearance to the neck and jaw without surgical intervention. Our practice is excited to bring this revolutionary product to our facility. We welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your needs, and to help you determine if Kybella is the best solution for you.

How Kybella Works
Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a bile acid typically secreted by the liver to metabolize fat from food sources. Highly refined for safe injection into the area beneath the chin, the deoxycholic acid in Kybella separates and breaks apart stubborn fat deposits, allowing them to be removed through your body’s natural process of elimination.
Number of treatments depend on the amount of fat in your double chin. On average, most patients see results 2-3 treatments. How many treatments you will require can best be determined during your initial consultation at our Grand Rapids office.
An Alternative to Surgical Procedures
Kybella is an alternative to surgical procedures such as liposuction of the neck, and does not require a lengthy recovery. Some bruising, swelling, loss of sensation, and discomfort in the injection area may accompany treatment, but these side-effects should be short lived. Extended discomfort is rare and should be brought to the immediate attention of our board-certified plastic surgeons.
While not as fast as a surgical procedure, Kybella is a safe and effective way to address fat deposits that have failed to respond to diet and exercise. During your initial consultation we will carefully evaluate your face and neck to ensure Kybella is the right treatment for your needs.
Once fat has been eliminated through Kybella treatment it cannot come back as long as you maintain a consistent weight. For more information please schedule a consulation.
