Thank you for your question chloelattman. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. It is thought that the fat destruction is complete within an hour or so after a treatment as the product is cleared from the body in that time. Also the burning patients feel for about 15 minutes after a treatment is from the fat being dissolved. The body eliminates this fat slowly over months. Patience is important and multiple treatments are required. It is important to maintain a healthy diet after the treatment so as not to gain weight.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Thank you for your question. As the deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells, the unwanted fat cells can then be safely eliminated by the body. It make take between two (2) and six (6) Kybella treatments for optimal results, although most patients begin to see results after only two treatments and as early as two weeks. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. The in-person examination will illuminate some of these answers based on your health profile and desires.
The Kybella will start o work on breaking down the fat immediately. However, it may take your body several weeks to eliminate the fat. Every individual is different but you can expect to be swollen for anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks. Hope this helps.

Kybella and Fat
Kybella works almost immediately after the injection to break down the fat. Over the next few weeks the body will eliminate the fat. You can see the break down of the fat by the swelling and immediate reaction after Kybella is injected. Best, Dr. Green
