It’s Here!!! Kybella – the under chin, permanant ‘fat-dissolver!’

It’s here and we’re excited to provide our patients another option in losing that stubborn under chin and neck fat!  We welcome to our line-up of fabulous, non-surgical injectables…KYBELLA!

Since earning its FDA approval early in 2015, KYBELLA has been gaining traction in the media for its ability to slim down double chins without surgery. You may have seen the recent TV ads with the man or women who have participated in the series of treatments of Kybella?!  And let me say, before we introduced this to our patients, I wanted to ensure this wasn’t another fade or gimmick that was being pushed on us.

You see, with these products; injectables like Botox and Dermal Fillers like Juvederm, we as Plastic Surgeons have to undergo the manufacturers training.  We’re well studied, skilled and me, I’m Board Certified; which means I’m the ‘real deal,’ but when introducing a new product that ‘permanently’ destroys the fat cells under the chin and gives you a more defined profile, I wanted to delve in and take a closer look at this product!

Kybella gradually works over a series of injections to a specific area under the chin.  In some patients, this could require a series of 2-3 treatments and with others, they may need 3-5 treatments.  These treatments are carried out over a span of 4-6 weeks, hence the timing of my post!  As with any medical procedure, I must disclose that results will vary and not every participant or patient will achieve the same results as our participants have or the manufacturers trial patients did.

This past September I met with my Representative from Allergan. I hand picked a group of patients who volunteered their time to participate in my own ‘in-house’ study.  Each patient had unique goals with their chin, neck and their profile.  To give you an idea of my test patients, I’ve put together a brief profile of each:

  • Gentleman: Age 23.  This patient had a minimal amount of reduction with the desire to sharpen, refine and polish his profile. He received 1-Kybella treatment and within 5-weeks, we saw a reduction of fat and his jaw line was enhanced and refined;
  • Woman:   Age 36.  This patient has struggled with weight but recently loss 25-pounds but was still looking at her double chin.  Patient is profiled in below picture and is currently in between her second and third treatment. We are treating her every 4-weeks and as seen, we’ve noticed a moderate reduction in her chin and neck line improving her overall appearance; stephkybella

The picture above shows our patient; on left, before her first treatment with Kybella and on the right, after her second treatment and 7-weeks out from her first,

  •  Woman:  Age 46.  This patient recently underwent a Circumferential Tummy Tuck and had the desire to reduce her ‘hereditary’ double chin.  We seen a major reduction in chin/neck fat and a more defined jaw line after 2-treatments.  After further examination, we are going to administer one more treatment of Kybella to get her the desired look she desires.

After working with these patients, I am pleased to announce that we are now offering Kybella in my practice!

Join us on Friday, November 4th from 11AM to 2PM! We are having a luncheon to officially launch Kybella along with the manufacturers Representative in attendance, where you can come, learn more about Kybella and its many benefits and features AND meet my test patients who so kindly volunteered for my in-office study!

We will serve Box Lunches between Noon and 1PM, of course complimentary to you, and in addition, this is a great time to mingle with me, my staff and other patients alike!  We will be raffling off one of our fabulous skin care products so make sure you RSVP by calling 859-429-3333 by Wednesday, November 2, 2016!
