What is KYBELLA?
Kybella is an FDA-approved cytolytic drug, used to cosmetically treat chin and neck fat in order to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Kybella treatments are far less invasive than the average cosmetic surgeries for neck contouring (liposuction, lifts, etc.), offering incredible results for patients with far less discomfort and downtime.
The drug Kybella is an exact synthetic replica of deoxycholic acid, a secondary bile acid that is naturally occurring in the human body and is responsible for the absorption of fat. Since its discovery, deoxycholic acid has been used in a variety of ways, but with the approval of Kybella by the FDA in 2015, it has become one of the most common and effective treatments for submental fat, or fatty pockets in the chin that can make people appear older and heavier.
