What is Kybella™?
Kybella™ the only injectable available for the treatment of submental fullness. More commonly known as a double chin, submental fullness affects over 60% of Americans and can be embarrassing and affect your self-esteem. Kybella™ uses deoxycholic acid to eliminate moderate to severe fat that accumulates underneath the chin. Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced in the body and is effective in targeting and disintegrating unwanted dietary fat, leaving your skin tight and smooth. Kybella™ is FDA-approved and has received incredible reviews from patients and doctors everywhere.

Is Kybella™ Right For Me?
If you have excess fat underneath your chin and around your neck that you would like to eliminate, Kybella™ may be the solution. Ideal patients are adults over the age of 18 who are unhappy or self-conscious about their double chin. During your personal consultation, Dr. Wilcox will examine the target area to determine if you are a candidate for Kybella™.
Does Kybella™ Actually Work?
Kybella™ was tested in two clinical trials with over 1,000 participants. Of those, the participants who received the injections reacted positively and had noticeably reduced double chins compared to those who did not receive the treatment. Additionally, the Food & Drug Administration has approved Kybella™ as a safe and effective alternative to cosmetic surgery. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to discuss them with Dr. Wilcox or one of our experienced skin rejuvenation professionals.
What Is the Kybella™ Procedure Like?
Like most dermal fillers, Kybella™ is administered directly into the target area using a long, thin needle. The procedure normally takes 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the severity of your condition. Multiple injections are often needed to achieve the desired results. The injections are administered in our office and, once finished, you will be free to resume your daily activities.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
During the procedure, deoxycholic acid is injected directly into the excess fat. This naturally occurring molecule then disbands and breaks down the fat so the body can absorb it. Before beginning treatment, your esthetician will explain the amount of injections you will be receiving. In total, 2 – 4 treatments are usually needed to see results, however, up to 6 treatment sessions can be administered at least one month apart. The results are expected to be long lasting, and retreatment is not expected to be necessary.
What is the Cost of Kybella™?
Not all patients are created equal, and as such, treatments and procedures will vary in cost depending on your unique needs. The Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas offers financing options through CareCredit®.
