What is Kybella?

In 2015, the FDA approved Kybella for non-surgically improving the appearance of unwanted fat beneath the chin. The injectable treatment contains deoxycholic acid, a compound responsible for fat metabolism found naturally within the human body. When injected, Kybella works to destroy fat cells, and a common added benefit is tightening of the surrounding skin. Today, Kybella is not only commonly used for neck contouring, but for a variety of body sculpting treatments as well, including the dreaded “armpit roll”!

Why consider Kybella around the breasts?

Kybella injections around the breasts can safely and non-invasively slim and tone small unwanted fatty regions, such as the bra roll, which is typically unreceptive to diet and exercise. Kybella is injected into the fatty tissue, where it works to sustainably emulsify stubborn fat and leave you with a more streamlined breast contour.

Kybella can be used to contour other areas of the body as well, including:

  • Back
  • Inner knees
  • Lower buttocks
  • Armpits

“Dr. Lee is a life saver! It is very important that a plastic surgeon actually listens to a patient’s wants and needs. That is exactly what Dr. Lee did. I highly recommend her!”

Who is a good candidate for Kybella around the breasts?

Kybella works best for the following patients:

  • Healthy, both emotionally and physically
  • Those with small pockets of excess fat
  • Non-smokers
  • Those without excessive loose folds or skin
  • Those who have already explored dieting and exercise to lose fat
  • Patients with realistic expectations

What is the recovery like for Kybella?

For 2-3 days there may be some minor swelling at the injection site. This is normal and will pass quickly.

How long do Kybella results last?

Results from Kybella are considered to be long-term. The fat will not return, as long as you maintain a stable weight and healthy lifestyle.
