How to Prepare for Kybella Treatments

Kybella is a non-invasive surgery that requires minimum preparation. It is critical to plan the Kybella therapy with your healthcare professional and ensure that you are a good candidate for the operation. Discuss your medical history and any cosmetic techniques you have had done on your face, neck, or chin. Additionally, inform your SeeBeyond Beauty doctor if you have difficulty swallowing or bleeding.

An overview of Kybella Treatments

Kybella is a non-surgical injectable operation that targets the fat beneath your chin. The therapy involves a series of deoxycholic acid injections to address the fat cells in the area. No incisions are needed, and the downtime is minimal in most situations. The ideal candidate is an adult 18 years or older with mild to severe fat beneath the chin. You might not be an excellent candidate if you’ve had or are planning to have a facial operation, have difficulty swallowing, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have an infection, or have a medical issue in or near the intended injection location.

How do Kybella injections work?

When a specialist injects Kybella into your submental region (the chin), it destroys fat cells, reducing the appearance of a double chin. The FDA has only authorized Kybella for use in this location. You can receive up to six Kybella procedures, spaced at least a month apart, for best results. However, many obtain two therapies. The operations should be spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. This type of technique is called injection lipolysis. This indicates that it’s a method that breaks down fat through an injection. People frequently select Kybella because it’s a non-surgical alternative for excess chin fat removal. It also has a quicker recovery period than surgical techniques and poses fewer risks.

What to anticipate after Kybella injections

Your healthcare provider will create a treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements. Most patients need more than one Kybella procedure to achieve their desired cosmetic goals. In clinical tests, many people who’ve obtained Kybella therapy achieved visible outcomes after two to four operations. Six procedures were required in 59% of situations. Once the deoxycholic acid eliminates fat cells in the submental region, the outcomes should be lasting, and further therapy is not needed as the fat cells can no longer store fat.

Alternatives to Kybella injections

There are other choices for submental fat removal, and they include:

  1. Coolsculpting: This is also known as cryolipolysis. In this treatment, the fat cells are frozen and killed.
  2. SculpSure: This therapy is also known as laser lipolysis. It’s identical to Vanquish treatment in that the fat cells are heated and killed. However, instead of radiofrequency, it uses a laser for application.
  3. Neck contouring operation: This is a more invasive alternative. It may include liposuction, a neck lift, or both. The purpose of this technique is to give your chin and neck a flat, smooth appearance without a double chin.
  4. Vanquish: Also called radiofrequency lipolysis, this procedure heats fat cells with a radio frequency, killing them.
