KYBELLA® is the new FDA approved drug, used to improve the appearance of one's double chin. The fat below this chin is called "submental fat" and can leave some feeling self conscious or embarrassed. According to Web MD upwards of 80% of people with double chins are concerned about the condition. Kybella is an alternative to other treatments such as liposcution or surgery in order to fix a double chin.

What is in Kybella?

The active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. It is a naturally occurring molecule that helps to breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected underneath the chin Kybella helps to destroy the fat cells which in turn results in a noticeably nicer profile, and smaller double chin. The best part of this injectable is that once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Therefore, this treatment last long and no further treatments are expected.

Who should not receive this treatment?

You should not recieve Kybella is you have an infection in the treatment area.

How many treatments will you need?

This varies from person to person. Everyone's chin profile is different. The best way to determine this is to talk to a doctor that has experience with injectables and figure out together what are your personal goals for this treatment. These treatments are given at least one month apart, and one should not need more than six treatments. According to the Kybella® website clinical studies found 59% of patients received 6 treatments.

How much time will you need to recover?

One will likely receive swelling, burising, or possible numbness under the chin. If you do develop any facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing talk to your doctor immediately. If not, recovery tends to be very quick and one can resume normal active immediately after injection.

Is Kybella right for you?

  • Does the fat under your chin bother you?
  • Do you not want to go through surgery to achieve your desired look?
  • Do you believe you look older, heavier, or less attractive than you actually are?
  • You eat consider yourself a healthy person, but this submental fullness will not go away?

“Dr. Ali not only fixed the physical appearance of my scar, but healed the psychological and emotional scar it caused. She  genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her patients and I trust her implicitly.” *

– B. Paget

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

– Chris D.

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *
