Kybella® in Tampa Bay

Kybella® is the first treatment of its kind – an injectable treatment that can eliminate fat cells to enhance your facial profile. Dr. Mohadjer of Eyelid Surgeons of Tampa Bay specializes in this and other injectable treatments, offering these services to men and women living in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, FL and the many others who travel to us for Dr. Mohadjer’s expert services.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that can reduce the appearance of a double chin, otherwise known as submental fullness. The main ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a material that helps the body break down and absorb fat cells. When injected into the area under the chin, the Kybella® formula gradually destroys fat cells. Over time, the body will eliminate these fat cells from the body, producing an improved chin profile and a leaner appearance.

Am I A Good Candidate for Kybella®?

If you are struggling with the appearance of a double chin and are unable to achieve results with diet and exercise alone, you may be a good candidate for Kybella® treatments. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for Kybella® is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.

During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if Kybella® is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.

What is the Kybella® Treatment Like?

The Kybella® treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. This will help reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Once the skin is numbed, the Kybella® formula will be injected into the area under the chin. The number of injections performed can vary depending on your current condition. However, the injection process takes only a few minutes, so the Kybella® treatment is often completed in less than 30 minutes.

What is the Kybella® Recovery Process Like?

Kybella® requires practically no downtime or recovery period. You can expect some swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment area. These effects may persist for a few days, but they should resolve on their own within a week of treatment. It is not uncommon for patients to experience discomfort swallowing for a few hours after their treatment. Despite these effects, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their appointment.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?

The results from Kybella® will develop gradually as the Kybella® formula breaks down fat under the chin. Most patients begin to notice results within a few weeks, with full results developing a month or two after treatment.

For most patients, we will recommend a series of two to four Kybella® treatment sessions. These will be performed about one month apart for best results. Since Kybella® permanently destroys fat cells, the results can also be permanent. However, patients are encouraged to maintain healthy diet and exercise habits to make their results last as long as possible.
