What is Kybella?

In 2015, the FDA approved Kybella for non-surgically improving the appearance of unwanted fat beneath the chin. The injectable treatment contains deoxycholic acid, a compound responsible for fat metabolism found naturally within the human body. When injected, Kybella works to destroy fat cells and produce surgical-like results. A common bonus is tightening of the surrounding skin. Today, Kybella is not only used for submental contouring, but for a variety of body sculpting treatments as well, including the dreaded “armpit roll”.


Why consider using Kybella around the breasts?

Using Kybella around the breasts can safely and non-invasively slim and tone fatty regions, including the bra rolls, which are traditionally unreceptive to dieting and exercise. Kybella is injected into the fatty tissue, where it works to sustainably emulsify stubborn fat and leave you with a more toned and streamlined breast contour.

Kybella can be used to contour other areas of the body as well, including:

  • Back
  • Inner knees
  • Lower buttocks
  • Armpits

Who is a good candidate for Kybella around the breasts?

Kybella works best for the following patients:

  • Healthy, both emotionally and physically

  • Patients with realistic expectations

What is the recovery like for Kybella?

For 2-3 days there may be some minor swelling at the injection site. This is normal and will pass quickly.
