But now, non-invasive Kybella treatments may be able to enduringly end these worries for you. Dr. Stark and the team at the StarkMD Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center are pleased to offer this revolutionary new treatment to their Philadelphia area patients.

What is Kybella?

Kybella treats and corrects submental fullness, colloquially known as a “double chin.” Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to enduringly reduce and destroy fat cells below the chin. 

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body, When these molecules are injected into the under-chin area, fat cells are lastingly destroyed. Once destroyed, they can no longer store or accrue more fat. After completing your Kybella treatments, you will see less fullness under the chin and an improved profile.

How many Kybella treatments will I need?

Every treatment case is different. At the Philadelphia area Stark MD Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center, led by double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stark, time and care is taken to ensure that your custom treatment plan is appropriate to your individual situation.

Most patients see success after 2-4 Kybella treatments spaced about a month apart. The amount of fat that needs to be addressed, along with other cosmetic and medical factors, will determine how many treatments Dr. Stark recommends.

While it may take several treatments to achieve the desired results, those results are made to last. Once completed, further treatment with Kybella should not be expected.

How is Kybella administered?

Each Kybella treatment lasts 20-30 minutes. First Dr. Stark will apply a grid pattern to the treatment area to guide his injections with precision. He will either apply ice or utilize local anesthesia for your treatments.

Using a fine needle, Dr. Stark will inject Kybella strategically in the treatment area to reduce fatty deposits and contour the profile. After your treatment, you may experience some redness, burning, numbing, or swelling for one to three days.

You can return to normal activities immediately after each Kybella treatment. However, it will take 4-8 weeks after completing all treatments for your full results to be visible.

Could Kybella be right for me?

Kybella is not a weight loss treatment. If you are maintaining a healthy weight but still struggle with disproportionate fat below the chin and on the neck, Kybella could be a welcome solution. 

Whether the condition of submental fullness arises from aging, weight loss, or you’ve always suffered with submental fullness, Kybella may be an appropriate treatment.
