Uses for Kybella
I am at the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons meeting in Montreal right now and just had a long discussion with the Kybella people. They will reveal the costs in 2 months but it will be comparable to the cost of chin liposuction. They do not have FDA approval or studies for use anywhere else on the face. It will be widely available in July or August. Can't wait!
With the very little fat in the nose, I don't see a use for Kybella in the nose.

Ask a doctor
ATX 101 for the double chin
ATX 101 is FDA cleared as an injectable to reduce the double chin, not for reshaping the nose.
I am not sure a nose job would be in the list
Thanks for the
question and I think you need to be realistic when you think of what a fat
busting drug may be able to do – and I am not sure a nose job would be in the
list. I think if you are having concerns with your nose, make sure that you
consult with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to learn all of
the potential treatment options that are available to you for this.
ATX -101 is going to
be approved for treatment of the double chin area – and everything else at the
beginning will be considered off-label.
Fat melting not an option for nose jobs
I can think of many potential uses for a fat melting injection, but a nose job is certainly NOT one of them. The nose has very little fat. It's structure is bone and cartilage primarily.
ATX-101 Does Not Belong in the Nose
ATX-101 is a formulation of deoxycholic acid which can dissolve fat. ATX-101 would be totally inappropriate and unpredictable in the nose. Rhinoplasty is a technique to reshape bone and cartilage in the nose, which contains relatively little fat.
