Dr. Busso was invited to be among the first physicians in the United States to introduce new Kybella in July of 2015.
What is KYBELLA™?
KYBELLA™ is an injectable treatment that improves the profile and appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”* Fat cells are killed and eliminated by your body while surrounding tissues are unaffected.*
How many treatments are required?
1-5 treatment sessions may be required; each requires 1-2 vials of Kybella. Dr. Busso will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on the amount of submental fat you need to lose and your desired chin profile. Dr. Busso will administer a series of injections spaced a month or more apart. Many patients see visible contouring after 2 treatments.
How Long Does KYBELLA™ Last
Kybella destroys fat cells. Retreatment should not be required.
What are possible side effects of KYBELLA™?
The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ include: swelling, pain, numbness, bruising, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. KYBELLA™ can cause serious side effects, including difficulty swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or weakness of facial muscles. Talk to Dr. Busso for medical advice about side effects and additional information.
Who should not receive KYBELLA™?
You should not receive KYBELLA™ if you have an infection in the neck area. Tell Dr. Busso about any medical conditions, planned or past surgery or cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; or any history of medical conditions in or near the neck area; trouble swallowing; or bleeding problems. If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA™ will harm your unborn baby), are breastfeeding, or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA™ passes into your breast milk, talk to Dr. Busso about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA™).
Tell Dr. Busso about all medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements, and especially any medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).
