Kybella Is An Exciting New Option For Nonsurgical Treatment of The Neck
During your initial appointment for a Kybella consultation at Wave, you will meet with a consultant to determine if treatment with Kybella will meet your aesthetic goals, and if you are a candidate for such a treatment. If the answer to these questions is yes, you will be seen by one of our surgeons, who will do a thorough history and physical examination, and discuss with you all of the different considerations that relate to treatment with Kybella, including the schedule of injections, since Kybella is usually not a single injection treatment.
The treatment itself is remarkably quick and easy to do, and recovery and downtime is minimal. This makes it one of the most exciting new options for patients looking to improve the appearance of their neck, chin and jawline without resorting to surgery.
Treating Double Chin with Kybella Injections
A skillfully trained provider will determine how much is needed to treat the designated area. We typically apply a topical numbing cream as well as inject with Lidocaine to ensure that the treatment will be comfortable and virtually painless. After the treatment, we suggest anti-inflammatory remedies and ice for comfort and swelling reduction.

Kybella and Expectations
Kybella is a fabulous treatment to remove the submental fat - better known as the "double chin". We apply a topical numbing for 30 minutes and then locally inject the patient to make the Kybella injection comfortable. After I mark the patient's anatomy and the area of injection with a template, I meticulously inject the Kybella into the treated area. We ice the patients and follow-up with all patients in several weeks. We have had fantastic results with Kybella. Best, Dr. Green

Kybella Treatment Experience
Once the decision to proceed with treatment by Kybella has been made and the patient arrives for treatment the following protocol is used in my Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Practice:
The skin is cleansed with antiseptic and the neck is reexamined. The patient is given an oral prescription dose of an NSAID such as Ibuprophen (Advil ) which will help to reduce discomfort and subsequent swelling. Markings are placed to set the borders of the desired treatment area. Ice packs are applied to the skin to begin to make the skin less sensitive. Local anesthetic is injected as a "field block" to further reduce the sensation from the actual Kybella injections. After a few minutes when the anesthetic effect has been achieved Kybella solution is injected carefully into the subcutaneous fat compartment above the muscle layer and below the skin to avoid undesirable side effects. After the injections are completed the area is lightly massaged and ice packs are reapplied for a few minutes. Markings are removed and the patient is discharged until their next injection appointment 4 to 8 weeks later.
With this approach we have had no complications, no pain during treatment and reduced swelling following the treatment.

What to expect During a Kybella Visit
Prior to the Kybella procedure patients can sit with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes. During the treatment the target area will be marked with a pencil and a temporary "tattoo" grid will be placed. (This is easily removed after treatment.) The area is then injected with numbing medicine, and then with Kybella. The treated area usually starts turning red and swelling within about 15 minutes. Most patients will have temporary side effects of redness, swelling, and tenderness for about 4-5 days. Occasionally this will last longer. Treatment is repeated about 6-8 weeks later. Most patients need 2-4 treatments.

What to expect during a Kybella appointment
If you decide you are open to Kybella, then the procedure can be usually be done on the same day. The procedure takes ~20 min and is very well tolerated. Although you may start to see changes with even one treatment, you may want to consider 2-4 treatments before you start to notice a much bigger change.
Better appearance, youthful look
No general anesthesia
Very rare and minimal side effects (typically bruising, pain, and redness at the injection points)
I suggest consulting with a qualified physician for a full consultation.
