Kybella

Right now, Kybella is only available in the US and Canada and FDA approved for under the chin. However, many surgeons are starting to experiment with "off label" uses so stay tuned.

Future of Kybella

The clinical uses in the US for Kybella in the future to shrink and eliminate fat will be interesting.  There is off label discussion of the non 'double chin' uses on other areas of the body but currently on-label treatment is only described in the Us and Canada.

Kybella Body Contouring

Kybella and Phosphatydyl Choline have been used in Europe and South America for years.  This is commonly known as Mesotherapy.  Publications regarding the effective and safe dosage and frequency of use have been published and reviewed in our journals. We have used these solutions with postitive results for years.
Please use this information when consulting in person with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Is deoxycholic acid / deoxycholate / ATX-101 / Kybella / Belkyra available for use for body contouring in Europe?

The product is only available in the US and Canada and is only approved for use in the treatment of double chin at this point. Get a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon near you to discuss options that are available for body contouring. Best of luck!

Is deoxycholic acid / deoxycholate / ATX-101 / Kybella / Belkyra available for use for body contouring in Europe?

Hello lea7890,

Kybella is currently only available in the US and is only approved for the submental area.  Anything outside of that has not been studied and FDA approved.  Treatment outside of the submental area would be considered off label.  Given the cost of Kybella and the number of treatment areas that would be needed to contour the abdomen, it would be prohibitively expensive when compared with liposuction even if it were approved.  

I hope this helps and good luck.
