The Kybella Debate

Our skin is something that does so much for us so the least that we can do is take care of it back! As we age, the effect of life starts to take a toll on it and that’s when we start to lose the confidence that we had. This is where Kybella comes in.

It sounds like such a pretty word but we promise it makes you feel even prettier. This is the only FDA approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. You can consider Kybella for many reasons:

  • You eat well and exercise but submental fullness doesn’t go away
  • You don’t want surgery
  • You feel like you look heavier than you are
  • You’re bothered and unhappy with your appearance


So you feel all of these things, now what? Well its important for you to prepare for this treatment with your healthcare provider. You have to make sure that you are the right candidate for this procedure because you don’t want to get anything done that you don’t need. You should go I for a consultation and discuss any of the worries that you have. At this point you guys should go over your medical history as well as any cosmetic procedure you’ve already done in the past.

Before getting any procedure, it’s important to know how it even works. Let’s get a bit scientific. Your body produces a bile acid called Deoxycholic acid that helps your body absorb fat. The Kybella injections use a synthetic form of this as an injection so that when it’s used on your submental area, the acid can destroy fat cells beneath the chin. This will keep it form being able to store fat anymore. When you come get the procedure, the amount of sessions you will need depends on the patient and how serious the condition may be. One thing that’s for sure is that multiple treatments are usually needed to reach optimal results.

This type of procedure is nonsurgical so it doesn’t have any great side effects but you should expect some swelling, bruising, and numbness for a bit. This can subside within two weeks so if you feel a constant reoccurrence of it then it’s a good time to call your healthcare provider. This is a procedure that’s starting to become more and more popular because of how minimally invasive it is.

One good thing is that here at YMD, we offer just that! Kybella is something that Dr.Yielding has perfected and has made sure that her main goal is the overall satisfaction of her customers. Make sure you visit our website to schedule a consultation today.
