The first of its kind, Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment used to target what is known as the “double chin,” the moderate to severe fat in the region beneath the chin. The nonsurgical injection uses deoxycholic acid, which is naturally found in the body, to breakdown and destroy fat cells so these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Houston, TX double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, uses this safe and effective treatment as an alternative to neck liposuction. The results of Kybella are long-term, but subsequent weight loss and gain can affect its effectiveness. Multiple treatments are needed to achieve full results.
"Dr. Brissett, If you ever have anyone who would like to talk to someone I would be happy to do so. Thank you for the wonderful care you have given me so far! You have been a blessing in my life and I am most grateful for you! May God continue to bless the work of your hands. Sincerely, AL"- AL / Other / Jun 15, 2017

The best candidates for Kybella:
- Have moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, which gives the appearance of a double chin
- Desire a nonsurgical approach for fat reduction
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results
What to Expect
A number of small injections will be made in the fat under the chin during this outpatient procedure. If pain or discomfort will be an issue, a local numbing agent can be administered prior to a Kybella treatment. The treatment typically lasts around 15 – 20 minutes. Since 2 – 6 treatments are usually needed, they will be spaced out about a month apart.
After Kybella, there is no downtime, but patients might experience mild pain, swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the injection site. These side effects could last 2 – 3 days. Some patients may notice a reduction of fat after just a single treatment, but most patients will notice improvements after 2 or 3 treatments.
