What is KYBELLA?

Do you see a picture of yourself and shudder at the presence of a "double chin?" If so, Brickell Cosmetic Center may be able to help! Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper neck area may create the presence of a "double chin" that is bothersome to both women and men in the Miami Beach and Brickell, FL areas. Additional pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Our team is proud to offer a cutting-edge technique to get rid of neck fat at her Miami, FL office. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is a nonsurgical option to reduce upper neck fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which works like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you should see a visible reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not return so you can enjoy your new slimmer neck and strong jawline for years to come.

What Are The Benefits Of KYBELLA?

KYBELLA injections in Miami, FL at Brickell Cosmetic Center can tackle even the most stubborn double chins to reshape and redefine your look with a number of great benefits like:

  • Reducing a double chin without surgery
  • Shrinking unwanted neck fat
  • Slimming the neckline and profile
  • Creating a younger, rejuvenated look
  • Treatments are quick and easy
  • No downtime
  • No scarring

Am I A Good Candidate For KYBELLA?

The ideal patients for KYBELLA injections have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn areas of fat that can't be removed with normal weight loss techniques and are typically due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not been able to eliminate the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the right procedure for your needs. While KYBELLA can remove small to moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better suited for other procedures like FaceTite at Brickell Cosmetic Center in Miami, FL. During your consultation, our team will examine you and listen to your concerns to determine if KYBELLA is right for you.

What Can I Expect from My KYBELLA Treatment?

To start your KYBELLA appointment, someone from our team may apply a numbing ointment to the injection area, if requested, for added comfort. The injection takes around 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections into the upper neck area. You may only require one treatment to achieve your desired goal, or you may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart, depending on your overall goals. After your appointment, you're free to return to your normal routine, although keep in mind, you may experience temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin for a few days. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger so you must keep a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatments to keep new pockets of fat from forming. Ideal results after this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and tighter, and your neckline will be more defined.


Am I eligible for KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is designed for adults at least 18 years old who want to improve the appearance and profile of their double chin. Patients should discuss their health history with the specialists at Brickell Cosmetic Center to determine if KYBELLA is safe for their needs. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for KYBELLA at this time.

Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas?
Currently, KYBELLA is only approved to treat the chin and upper neck areas. For people who want to treat unwanted signs of aging like wrinkles and creases, our clinic offers a wide range of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. These injections can be placed around the eyes, mouth, nose, and brow to achieve a more pleasing appearance.

How much does KYBELLA cost?
The cost of KYBELLA injections depends on how many units are needed to complete your look. During your consultation at Brickell Cosmetic Center, our aesthetic team can create a personalized KYBELLA treatment plan based on your budget and goals. We can also discuss payment options — so there are no surprises in terms of cost.

How does KYBELLA work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA, deoxycholic acid, is designed to break down and destroy fat cells in the submental area. After the fat cells are destroyed, these fat cells cannot regenerate. This is why additional treatments shouldn't be needed as soon as you have reached your desired outcome.

How many treatment sessions will I need?
At your consultation, a customized KYBELLA treatment plan will be tailored to meet your needs and goals. Most often, patients get between 2 – 4 KYBELLA treatments before achieving their goals. KYBELLA treatments need to be made about one month apart. You should not get more than six injections.

Can KYBELLA Results Be Reversed or Altered?
Once KYBELLA destroys the fat cells in the submental area, the results are permanent and cannot be reversed. This is why it's crucial to consult with the specialists at Brickell Cosmetic Center to ensure that you are an ideal candidate and that your treatment goals are clearly understood. If you would like to alter the results, there are other aesthetic procedures that can be considered to enhance or balance your profile, but the fat cells eliminated by KYBELLA cannot be regenerated. It's essential to discuss any concerns you may have during your consultation.
