Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable designed to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness. Typically, the fat found below the chin is non-responsive to diet and exercise, especially when caused by genetics. The non-surgical procedure can be done with a quick, in-office visit and has minimal side effects and virtually zero downtime.

- Treat moderate to severe fullness
- Improve self-image and confidence
How Does It Work?
At the time of your Kybella® appointment, one of Image Surgical Arts ’s expert injectors will mark the injection sites and apply a topical numbing agent. They will then strategically make multiple small injections to the predetermined treatment area. The deoxycholic acid-based injectable breaks down and absorbs localized pockets of fat. During your initial consultation, Dr. Harris and his staff will walk you through every aspect of your upcoming procedure in-depth.
When Can I Expect to See Results?*
Results from Kybella® are not immediate. It takes time for your body to naturally absorb and expel dead fat cells. On average, you can expect to see results from your initial Kybella® treatment about 4-6 weeks later. Anywhere from 2-6 treatments may be necessary to help you achieve your desired outcome. However, Kybella® provides long-lasting results. Once existing fat is gone, it isn’t coming back. Fluctuations in weight can have adverse effects on your treatment.
*Individual results may vary.
Does It Hurt?*
Most patients find the procedure quite tolerable. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied beforehand to make the treatment more comfortable. During the 15-20 minute injection process, you may feel slight pressure from the small needle. After your Kybella® procedure, you’re free to return to normal activities as needed.
Common side effects may include slight swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness. Any symptoms of your Kybella® treatment should subside within several days. It’s important to choose a skilled injector such as Dr. Brady Harris or one of his trusted, expert injectors to perform your Kybella® treatment to ensure the best possible outcome with the least amount of recovery time.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Men and women who are bothered by their profile or a double chin can benefit from the procedure. Ideal candidates are patients who are in good general health and are non-smokers.
