What Results Will I See From Kybella®?
You will see a significant decrease in your double chin. This gives you a more sculpted neckline and can improve the appearance of loose skin. However, more significant amounts of loose skin may need a different type of treatment to tighten and firm it. Most people need two to four Kybella® treatments to achieve their treatment goals.
After removal, fat cells cannot grow back, so your results should last long-term. If you experience any dramatic changes in weight, that can change how your results look. In addition, Kybella® cannot stop the normal progress of aging, including the development of loose skin in the neck and chin area.
Is There Any Downtime After Kybella®?
You may see bruising, swelling, and some soreness in the area of the injections that lasts a few days, up to a week. Some people develop temporary areas of firmness as Kybella® works on the fat cells, but these will go away on their own. You can return to your regular activities after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
Most people with submental fullness are good candidates for Kybella®, although people with significant amounts of loose skin may want to consider a different procedure. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use Kybella®, and you should not use it if you have recently had or plan to have facial surgery.
