How Many Kybella Treatments Do I Need to See Results?

Posted on September 8, 2016 by: Dr. Rocheford

Let’s face it: You’ve had it up to here with your double chin.  As we head into a new season, you may be concerned about excess fat underneath your chin.  After all, it’s tough to feel confident in photos when you’re worried about how your double chin looks.

To make matters worse, it seems as though diet and exercise aren’t having any impact on your chin fat.  You can’t help but wonder what you can do to eliminate your chin fat. Is it possible? And if it is, does it involve plastic surgery?

If you’ve found yourself wondering those questions, it’s time to introduce yourself to Kybella injections at Rocheford Plastic Surgery in Woodbury, MN.

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-cleared injection approved for the treatment of excessive submental (chin) fat.  Kybella contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring compound that’s injected straight into the submental fat.  The acid then eats away at the fat cells, causing their destruction.  Once the fat cells are destroyed, they’re removed through the body’s metabolic processes.

Over a period of six to twelve weeks, clients will see a drastic reduction in submental chin fat.  The results are permanent; however, Kybella injections do not prevent the formation of new fat cells.  Therefore, clients will need to commit to a diet and exercise regimen to maintain results.

How Many Injections Will I Need?

Most patients will need 2-4 injections to see desired results.  However, the amount of submental fat will eventually determine how many treatments are needed.  Side effects include slight swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection site.  These side effects resolve themselves within the first few days after the treatment.
