With Kybella®, patients can eliminate fat under the chin to reduce the appearance of a double chin, without the use of surgery. Eko Plastic Surgery offers this treatment to the residents of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, CA and surrounding areas.
Kybella® is an injectable treatment composed of an ingredient known as deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a substance that is found in the body, which helps to break down and absorb fat. The Kybella® treatment is FDA-approved for the treatment of submental fullness, otherwise known as a double chin. When Kybella® is injected into the area under the chin, it helps the body break down fat to enhance the contours of the neck and improve the facial profile.
The cost of your Kybella® treatment at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
The Kybella® treatment is performed using a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Once the skin is numbed, Kybella® will be injected into and around the area under the chin. The exact number of these injections will depend on your unique treatment goals. This process takes less than 30 minutes. After the treatment, you may notice some mild swelling or redness in the treatment areas, but there will be no downtime required. You will be able to resume work and other normal activities immediately.
You will begin to notice results from your Kybella® treatment after any side effects fade and the Kybella® formula begins to take effect. For most patients, a series of Kybella® treatments will be needed for optimal results. Patients can expect to achieve noticeable results about two to three months into their treatment, after they have received a few Kybella® treatments.
With the Kybella® treatment, the fat cells are broken down, removed by the body’s natural processes and eliminated permanently. Patients can achieve long-lasting and even permanent results with the Kybella® treatment. We encourage patients to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits after their treatment, as future weight gain can impact the results from Kybella®.
