Thank you for your question. Kybella is only approved by the FDA for use underneath the chin. For an approach to toning the stomach, please consider SculpSure. The SculpSure laser has been clinically approved to eliminate up to 25% of that stubborn to lose subcutaneous fat in the belly and flanks regions. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Off label use of Kybella
As you know, Kybella is only FDA approved for treating submental fat. Any other use is considered "off label" so you will really need to trust your surgeon and his or her understanding of anatomy. Personally, I would probably encourage you to try something else for the mid section such as CoolSculpt.
Kybella and Off-Lablel Indications
Kybella is currently only approved for submental fat and has undergone rigorous studies for this approval. I would not consider off label areas at this time. Please look into Coolsculpting or other effective and approved ways to reduce fat. Best, Dr. Green
