San Francisco Plastic Surgery & Laser Center is proud to offer Kybella treatments in the San Francisco, Bay Area
Kybella is a simple, non-invasive injection treatment designed to tighten and accentuate the natural contour of the neck and under-chin area of the face.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Usha Rajagopal and our professional staff provide Kybella treatments at our state of the art office location.
Why Kybella Treatment?
Dr. Usha Rajagopal and San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center now offers Kybella (deoxycholic acid) treatments. Kybella is an innovative, non-invasive, FDA-approved injectable treatment which improves the appearance of fat beneath the chin without surgery. "Submental fullness" due to fat beneath the chin can be caused by genetics, weight gain or aging. Diet and exercise may not reduce this fullness. Kybella injected into the fat beneath the chin, destroys your fat cells. Once destroyed, these affected cells cannot store or accumulate fat any longer.
Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella. Once the fat is destroyed, it is processed through our body’s natural metabolism.
Kybella may be right for you if:
- You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as "submental fullness"
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
Getting Kybella Treatment
During your initial consultation, Dr. Rajagopal will assess the area and determine if you are a good candidate and determine how many treatments you would require.
During treatment, you will be asked to ice the area five minutes prior to the treatment. After icing, the area is cleansed, marked, and treated. The entire in-office treatment takes less than 15 minutes. The treatment is uncomfortable but completely tolerable.
After treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort for 2- 3 days. Over-the-counter NSAIDS and icing will help. You may resume activities as tolerated. You may notice results as soon as 6 weeks after the procedure, and the area will continue to improve for 2-3 months. Follow up is recommended at 2-3 months.
Off-Label Use of Kybella
Did you know that Kybella could be used to treat bra bulge fat and target certain areas for body contouring? This is considered an "off-label" use of Kybella, so make sure you go to a qualified Kybella injector if you're considering this procedure.
