Kybella® in Tucson, AZ
Kybella® is an injectable prescription medication made to improve the appearance of a double chin, also known as submental fat. It is made up of a molecule that occurs naturally in our body called deoxycholic acid. This molecule aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once Kybella® is injected, cells can no longer store fat, ensuring long-lasting results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable medication to improve the chin and neck profile. You may be a good candidate for this treatment if:
- You are self-conscious of your double chin
- Excess submental fat makes you appear older than you are
- You do not wish to undergo invasive surgery
- Your double chin cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise
What Can I Expect from Kybella®?
A consultation with Dr. Eades before your procedure is necessary to examine the area under your chin and determine if Kybella® is right for you. Before receiving injections, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Multiple small injections will then be administered, with treatment taking about 15-20 minutes.
Following treatment, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treatment area, though this should resolve within a week. There is little to no downtime associated, and patients can return to their everyday activities as soon as they feel comfortable.
