Kybella not FDA Approved for Treating Armpit Fat
At this time, Kybella is only FDA approved to treat submental fat so anything else is considered "off label" which means that there hasn't been enough testing done into the efficacy and safety of using Kybella in these other areas. My best advice would be for you to schedule an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to talk about other options for treating the fat in your arm pit/bra strap area such as CoolSculpting.
Kybella is only FDA approved for the submental area
Kybella for bra fat
Kybella is the first and thus far only FDA-approved, non-surgical, injectable treatment for the double chin. At this point it is only indicated for the double chin. However there are currently studies on the use of Kybella for other areas including bra fat. The safety and side-effect profile for Kybella has not been established on areas other than the double chin and Kybella treatments in other areas are currently considered off label. There are a number of surgical and non-surgical options for pockets of fat including a variety of energy-based devices. Good luck!

Kybella for Armpit Fat Removal
Currently, Kybella is only FDA approved for injections in the submental (chin) area. However, there are clinical trials being performed for injections in other places. Stay tuned to updates as these trials unfold!
As for now, I would recommend liposuction with a board certified plastic surgeon. This is a permanent and reliable way to remove fat from this area.
Best of luck to you!
Kybella for arm fat?
Treatment of anterior bra fat with Kybella is actually being looked at in an ongoing trial and so I can't speak to their results just yet. I can tell you that we have used it in a few off-label areas with very good success but it has taken at least 2 treatments to do so.
My suggestion for a quick and easy in-office procedure would be to do liposuction in this area followed by ThermiTight. The procedure should take no more than 30-45 minutes total and the results can be seen in as little as a few months.
I hope that helps and wish you the very best!

Kybella for armpit fat removal?
Kybella can theoretically remove fat anywhere it is injected. It is currently only approved for the double chin area (submentum). Using it in the armpit area would be considered off label, and may carry some serious risks since the nerves that control your arm are nearby. There are other treatment options for that area which would probably be more effective, less expensive, and less risky.
I hope this helps and good luck.
