Kybella. How long will it last? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 25
One of the really excellent things about Kybella is that once the fat is dissolved, it is gone for good so while it may take between 2-4 sessions to achieve your final results, those results are permanent. Hope this helps.
Kybella is Permanent
Kybella is FDA approved non-surgical treatment for excessive fat underneath the chin (double chin). Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin. The fat cells are then destroyed and cannot store or produce fat any longer. A patient may have to return 4-6 times to receive their desired look. The results are permanent. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they can no longer accumulate fat.
Permanent Kybella Results
Kybella can be a very effective way to address excess submental fat in many of my patients. I have been happy to achieve excellent results with this treatment. The removal of the excess fat is permanent; however, ongoing aging of the skin can lead to additional skin excess under the chin over a period of years.

Kybella permanently destroys fat
Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable drug used to treat the submental fat that causes a double chin. It destroys the fat cells and prevents the fat from reaccumulating. It has produced amazing results and is associated with very little downtime, with most going to work the next day. Depending on how much fat is in the submental region, the typical number of treatments ranged from 2-4 for maximal results. Theoretically, the fat cells that are destroyed do not regenerate so it is considered a long lasting treatment. Cost usually ranges from $1000-$1200/Treament
Thanks for your question. Kybella targets fat cells to remove them permanently. This does not include natural factors such as aging. The number of treatments needed depends on a patient’s desired goal. Visit a board certified dermatologist to get the exact number of treatments needed. Hope this helps. Best, Dr. Katz

How long does Kybella last?
The great thing about Kybella is that the results are permanent. After significant weight loss, the best result in your neck may be a facelift to tighten the loose skin- the nice surprise with kybella is that we do see some skin tightening-the question is whether it is enough to meet your needs. I have had some patients with loose skin after weight loss who didn't want a face lift and have been happy with their kybella results. I would recommend that you seek out a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss which options are best for you. Good luck and congratulations on your weight loss!
