What Is Kybella?

A Kybella treatment involves little to no downtime, and the product is FDA-approved for double-chin reduction. This is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures and should only be performed by an experienced professional.

Kybella injections cause fat cells to die and be safely and naturally filtered out of the body. Deoxycholic acid is naturally secreted in your body and helps absorb dietary fat. Kybella injections use the synthetic form of this bile acid to destroy the fat cells located under the chin. Once destroyed, the fat cells can no longer store fat.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Kybella?

You are a good candidate for Kybella if you are at least 18 years with noticeable excess fat under your chin. The procedure may not be for you if you have difficulty swallowing, are planning a facial surgery, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have any medical conditions affecting your chin.

Preparing for the Procedure

There’s nothing much to prepare before undergoing Kybella. Since it is non-surgical, the risks associated with it are very minor and negligible. However, you need to avoid taking acetaminophen and ibuprofen beforehand to prevent bruising post-procedure.

During your consultation, you will discuss your medical history in detail with a skilled expert. Talk to them about any cosmetic procedures you have already undergone and any allergies you may have. You should also let them know if you are under any medication. Once they are confident about your candidature for Kybella, you can plan a date for the procedure.

Kybella: The Procedure

At the start of the procedure, the targeted injection sites will be marked. A topical numbing agent will then be administered to ensure you are at ease throughout the process. Generally, 20-50 quick injections are administered beneath the chin. The acid kills the fat cells, which are then gradually metabolized by your body.

The number of sessions depends on the fat deposits you have and your expectations from the procedure. Usually, multiple sessions are required to achieve optimal results. While some people achieve desired results after 3-4 sessions, several others require 6 treatments.


You can carry on with your daily activities after Kybella treatment without any issues. The procedure comes with minor temporary side effects such as bruising, swelling, and numbness. These conditions subside by themselves within a few days.

Do not lie down for several hours after receiving the injections. Additionally, it is best to apply an ice pack immediately after the treatment. You may need a cold compress for 2-3 days to control any swelling.

After the Kybella treatment, you must take care to reduce the chances of infection and inflammation. Avoid engaging in rigorous activities, since strenuous physical exercise can intensify inflammation. Avoid wearing makeup for a couple of days following the procedure.
