What is Kybella?
Kybella is an official product and the only FDA-approved painless treatment for fat reduction below the chin (submental fullness). It is a minimally invasive alternative to surgery that works to dissolve away excess fat quickly and with minimal downtime. Dr. Kirk Lozada offers Kybella to patients in Philadelphia, PA, who are looking for beautiful, natural-looking results from jawline contouring procedures. Kybella has minor side effects but can lead to amazing results if used correctly.
How does the Kybella treatment work?
Dr. Lozada performs Kybella treatments right in his Philadelphia office. During an initial consultation, he will assess the patient’s neck area and discuss the best course of action for them. Depending on the patient’s anatomy, such as the elasticity or laxity of their skin, Dr. Lozada may recommend a specific number of Kybella injections to achieve optimal results.
Once a treatment plan has been established, Dr. Lozada administers a series of numbing injections to ensure that the procedure is comfortable and painless for the patient. Afterward, he marks out several facial landmarks to guide him during the injectable procedure and ensure proper Kybella placement.
Dr. Lozada then carefully injects small amounts of Kybella into precisely targeted areas in the upper neck and chin area, using advanced techniques to boost the effectiveness of results while minimizing discomfort and bruising potential for patients. He can also tailor treatments to each individual patient’s needs by varying injection depths and amounts based on their unique anatomy and desired outcome goals from this cosmetic procedure.
After completing all necessary injections, Dr. Lozada assesses the treatment region one more time to ensure all areas have been addressed before concluding with post-procedure instructions for maximum comfort at home following this minimally invasive procedure. Patients should expect little-to-no downtime after their Kybella treatment and can return to work or other daily activities immediately afterward when feeling ready!
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella?

What is the Recovery like for Kybella?
Recovering from Kybella injectable treatment is relatively easy. The aesthetic goal of the treatment is to reduce fat and improve the contour of the chin and jawline. As this treatment involves dissolving fat cells, there is generally some downtime for healing, though it should not prevent patients from doing their normal activities.
Immediately after the Kybella treatment, patients should apply ice packs as needed for any swelling or discomfort. During recovery time, patients are advised to maintain a healthy diet and ideal weight to ensure that they get the best results possible. It’s also important to avoid strenuous activities such as exercise or heavy lifting during downtime for recovery so that your body can heal properly and you don’t experience any adverse effects after the treatment.
Generally speaking, it takes about one day after the Kybella treatment for patients to resume their normal activities. Most people will see a noticeable improvement in their profile within a few days after Kybella injection; however, it typically takes between 4-6 weeks to see full results from one session of Kybella. As with any injectable treatment, it may take several treatments over time for optimal results.
The Safety and Side Effects of Kybella
It is essential to have a clear understanding of the potential risks and side effects of Kybella before receiving any injection procedure.
The most common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, numbness in the area being treated, and pain at the injection site. These side effects generally resolve within a few days following your session. In rare cases, more serious complications can occur, including skin damage or nerve injury.
It is also important to note that Kybella breaks down fat cells, which can result in reduced skin elasticity if too much fat is removed from an area. This can be avoided by consulting with your provider prior to receiving additional treatments beyond what was initially recommended.
Overall, Kybella is a safe and effective way to improve appearance without surgery for those looking to reduce the appearance of fat below the chin. It is important for patients to understand possible risks when considering cosmetic treatments such as Kybella and discuss these concerns with their provider prior to receiving treatment.

A Kybella treatment typically takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. During the procedure, a series of injections are administered into the submental fat (below the chin), and these injections may be spread out over several areas depending on your individual needs or goals. The injection process can take anywhere from 15-20 minutes, with some patients taking longer or shorter amounts of time depending on their individual needs.
It is difficult to determine how many Kybella treatments are needed to see results, as this largely depends on the individual and their aesthetic goals. Generally speaking, most patients may require anywhere from 1-4 treatment sessions depending on the extent of their fat accumulation and desired results. The intensity of treatments can be adjusted as needed based on the patient’s response to prior sessions and overall goals. In some cases, Kybella may be combined with a filler treatment for optimal results. It is important to note that Kybella works by breaking down fat cells, so additional treatments may be necessary over time in order to maintain desired outcomes.
The results of Kybella typically last several months to a year as the fat cells are permanently destroyed and cannot regenerate. Kybella is an effective treatment for reducing fat below the chin and offers longer-lasting results compared to other non-surgical treatments.
