WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM KYBELLA?

Kybella dissolves “pinchable fat” that you can feel between your fingers. It does tighten the skin of the neck slightly, but a patient with excess skin would be a better candidate for a neck lift or a face lift.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR KYBELLA INJECTION

Dr. Epstein will determine the correct amount of Kybella to meet your needs. He will then anesthetize the skin below your chin so as the injections are painless. Once the injections have been placed patients will experience minor burning and swelling that dissipates over 2 days. Depending on the extent of fat present the average patient will require 2-4 treatments spread out every 6 weeks. Each session takes about 5-10 minutes.

AFTER YOUR TREATMENT

You will notice swelling and redness of your neck that is present for 2-3 days.
