What Do You Need to Know About Kybella?

In Two Words: Kybella Works!

  • Treatment: The first and only FDA approved injectable that dissolves fat permanently upon contact eliminating the need for surgery!
  • Purpose: Non-invasive permanent fat destruction that is FDA approved for submental/under chin region. Off label treatment includes jowls, bra fat, abdomen and knee fat.
  • Results: Submental/Underchin treatments result in a lifted, more contoured chin and thinner appearing face. With the fat bulge gone, you will look like you have lost weight. Additionally, jaw line treatment creates a beautifully contoured lower face/jaw line.
  • How It Works: The active ingredient in Kybella destroys fat permanently upon contact. The body than removes the destroyed fat.
  • Treatment Plan: Most individuals require 2-4 treatments which are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.
  • Time it Takes: You are in the office for one hour for pictures, numbing and treatment. Injection time is less than five minutes.
  • Recovery: Mild to moderate swelling occurs for a few days. Worse with the first treatment and less with repeat treatments. Swelling signifies destroyed fat cells that the body has to eliminate. Vigorous icing during the first 48 hours dramatically reduces swelling. The small inconvenience of transient discomfort and swelling is well worth achieving permanent fat loss!

What to Expect During Your Consultation





Kybella FAQs

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 reduced 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?

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?

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 reduce 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?

Number of required  Kybella  treatments depends on  treat your age, the amount of submental fat as well as your desired results. Most individuals need three treatments, but some require as many as six treatments. Treatments are performed six weeks apart with gradual results visible after each session.
