Kybella is a non-surgical injectable for reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a "double chin." The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. Using Kybella for treatment on areas other than the double chin is not approved or recommended. The treatment is called Belkyra in Canada, Australia, and U.K.

My Doctor Encouraged Kybella over Chin Lipo. San Antonio, TX

At 2.5 weeks later, I look worse, than I did before the shots. All my research shows that I will... READ MORE
