What is KYBELLA®

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring molecule in the body involved in fat metabolism. This ingredient breaks down the fat causing double chin and contours the chin area. The fat cells are permanently destroyed with the KYBELLA® treatment and will not re-accumulate. Once you've reached your desired results, no further treatment sessions will be needed. 

How is KYBELLA® performed

How is KYBELLA® performed?

Using a series of injections in a grid-like pattern, Dr. Bonakdar will administer KYBELLA® under your chin. The process is completed within several minutes, and you can return to your daily activities immediately. You may experience some mild burning for a few minutes afterward, but this can be eased with an ice pack and should subside quickly. KYBELLA® is a non-invasive procedure and does not involve surgery, anesthesia or prolonged downtime.

Do I Qualify

Do I Qualify?

The ideal candidates for KYBELLA® are adults with surplus fat just below the chin. Individuals who have skin laxity as well as submental fat, may need further treatments to address the skin laxity. Dr. Bonakdar offers a number of other cosmetic services to achieve young, healthy-looking skin. Other than KYBELLA®, Bonakdar Institute offers CoolMini™ which uses the CoolSculpting technology to break down and kill fat cells under your chin and as well as other other stubborn fat areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms and  knees. 

The best way to know if you qualify for KYBELLA® is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Bonakdar.

How Many Treatments will I Need

How Many Treatments will I Need?
