Kybella is a fabulous product to reduce the submental fat known as the "double chin". The injections also tighten up the treated area by as much as 25% in the lower face. It would only have a good impact on postponing surgery and not interfere with future surgeries. Best, Dr. Green
Kybella is a great option for the treatment of submental fat (double chin). As a trainer for this product, I have treated many patients and they have all seen nice results. Some have even experienced skin tightening. I am not sure if it could affect surgery later on. Time will tell.
Kybella is the first
injectable approved by the FDA for treatment of submental fat or fullness, also
known as a double chin.Newly approved
in 2015, Kybella has thus far seen very exciting results, and promises to be an
extremely popular, highly effectiveform of facial rejuvenation.Kybella
targets localized pockets of excess fat underneath the chin.It will not treat loose, sagging skin, so
patients seeking tighter, firmer skin in the neck and chin will need to
investigate a different treatment such as Ultherapy, Venus, or Thermi.Most patients require 3-4 injectable treatments
about a month apart for optimal results.
Approved by the FDA
in 2015, Kybella is the first—and only—FDA-approved injectable treatment targeting
the double chin (also known as submental fat or fullness). Initial results have
been very exciting, and Kybella promises to be a very popular, highly
effective—if very specific—facial rejuvenation procedure. Kybella is designed
to treat localized pockets of excess fat underneath the chin. It does not
address loose, sagging skin, so some patients may require supplementary,
skin-tightening procedures in addition to Kybella injections. Most patients
require 3-4 injectable treatments, spaced about a month apart, for optimal
Kybella provides outstanding results. I have been so impressed with the results of Kybella that I have received the treatment on my neck region - see the attached video.
Kybella, also known as ATX-101, is the first and only
FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of
submental fullness due to submental fat. It is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to
severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. The injection is administered by injections into the fat under the chin and each in-office treatment session lasts 15 to 20 minutes.
I suggest you consult a board certified facial plastic surgeon
to receive the highest quality knowledge, treatment, care and skill available.
A consultation provides you the opportunity to relay your
concerns and desired outcome to the surgeon while the surgeon can assess your
health profile and discuss his/her pertinent advice.
Excellent question! Kybella is a new product that has recently been FDA approved to dissolve submental fat under the chin. It usually takes 3-4 treatments to see optimal results and can be extremely effective. While Kybella has been proven to reduce fat, it does not offer the same lifting and tightening that a facelift or necklift does. Although Kybella is effective non-invasive treatment for eliminating a “double chin”, it does not stop or alter your body’s natural aging process. Your face and neck will still age normally, and it should not have any bearing on you being a good candidate for a face or necklift in the future. Kybella provides patients with another non-surgical option for facial revuvenation. I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified physician to determine if Kybella is the right treatment for you.
Kybella should not impact dramatically your ability to have a face/neck lift in the future should the need arise. You may have some more scar tissue in the area but still manageable surgically.

submental fullness and is the only non-invasive treatment for the reduction of
“double chins”. Kybella will permanently destroy fat cells in the targeted area
as well as offering limited skin tightening to the treated area administered by
