Kybella should not any in way affect your heart since it is injected into the underlying fat, not the blood stream. However, when you make your consultation appointment, let your injector know about your condition.
Kybella Is Safe For Heart Patients
Kybella is a localized injection that only affects the submental fat that it's meant to treat. There have been no reports about Kybella having any effect on the heart at all. If you are still concerned, you can get clearance from your physician, but it was not an exclusionary criteria for the study.
Kybella safety with heart conditions
Thank you for your question heatherfoyou. Kybella is the first FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. The safety and efficacy of Kybella has not been studied in people with heart conditions. So unfortunately we do not know the answer to your question. However Kybella dissolves the fat in the neck and it is thought to be completely eliminated from the body within 24 hours. The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring substance that we produce in the liver. Please consult with a cardiologist for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Kybella and Heart Problems
Kybella is a fabulous injection for the area of fat under the chin. There is no contraindication with these cardiac conditions but I would discuss them at length with your treating physician during your consultation. I often combine Thermage with Kybella for the best skin tightening and neck contouring. Best, Dr. Green
