When injected to areas such as the submental fat “ turkey neck” or jowls (heaviness in the lower cheek) patients see a significant reduction in fat. The beauty of this treatment is that the fat never comes back!


Kybella is based off of syringes needed and that is dictated by the area being treated. The submental fullness area generally requires 2-4 sryinges and a series of treatments, spaced 2-3 months apart to allow for full fat “aptosis” (fat cell death). The jowl area uses much less material- no more than 2 syringes and also requires a series of treatments, spaced 2-3 months apart. Treatment times takes about 1 hour.
