Kybella & Weight Loss
Bravo you for starting your weight loss journey and taking control of your health. I would encourage you to wait until you are at a maintainable goal weight before trying Kybella. You would get results if you do it now, but your face will change as you loose weight so I always think it best to wait if you can.
It’s better to wait to have any fat reduction procedure done until you’re at or near your goal weight for the best results.
Kybella Weight Loss
Weight loss after facial procedures may loosen neck skin. This should be taken into account when consulting with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in person.

Kybella is used primarily for destroying fat. The skin tightening is secondary. If you lose all the weight, you may not need Kybella. However, you may need a neck lift to tighten the loose skin.
To be sure what is best for you, see two or more experienced, licensed and board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment.
I hope this helps.
Kybella if your are overweight
Kybella and Weight NYC
You asked a very important question. I typically weigh patients before starting Kybella because if you gain weight you will feel that Kybella injections were not effective. It would be best to lose weight first since you will lose fat in that area and require less treatments. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
