Kybella®

Many Houston men and women have excess fat under the chin that detracts from their overall look. Although some people elect to have liposuction to reduce a double chin, Kybella® offers a non surgical alternative. Kybella® is an injectable product used to reduce the size of a double chin.

Dr. Bob Basu of Houston, Texas, is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in surgical and non surgical facial enhancement. His background in a range of cosmetic procedures as well as reconstructive surgery make him a top pick for men and women throughout the Houston area seeking a solution for a double chin.

Contact us online or call our office today at (713) 799-2278 to schedule a consultation at Basu Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery, conveniently located in three centers throughout Houston.

Your Kybella® Options

Once you’ve decided to move forward with Kybella® treatments, the procedure itself is fairly straightforward.

However, we may make recommendations for additional procedures to help you meet your aesthetic goals. Many people combine Kybella® treatments with other injectable products such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or JUVÉDERM® for a more comprehensive facial enhancement.

People who are fine-tuning their weight loss success may combine Kybella® with liposuction of the body for a more streamlined look. Some women choose to include Kybella® in their mommy makeovers, while men may opt for Kybella® after weight loss.

Your Kybella® Treatment

During your consultation, our certified aesthetician will describe the Kybella® treatment in greater detail, including an estimate of the number of treatments you may need and when you can expect to see your final results.

Kybella® uses deoxycholic acid, a natural molecule found in the body, to break down fat cells. The treated fat cells die, are then eliminated by the body’s natural disposal system, and are no longer able to store or accumulate fat.

Each Kybella® treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes. During your appointment, the aesthetician will inject the product directly into the submental area of the chin. Up to 50 injections may be administered during a single appointment, depending on your individual needs.

Most people benefit from a series of 2 to 6 treatment sessions spaced about 1 month apart.

Your Recovery & Results

While Kybella® injections are typically not painful, you may be treated with a topical numbing cream or an ice pack prior to your injections to maximize your comfort. You may experience temporary swelling, redness or bruising of the treatment area immediately following your appointment, but these effects should fade within about 1 week. If you experience more severe side effects, such as trouble swallowing, contact your doctor immediately.

You should see your results within 4 to 6 weeks of your final appointment; however, individual experiences vary. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent future weight gain can help you enjoy long-lasting results from your Kybella® treatment.
