Sood Center > Med Spa > Kybella®

As we grow older, our bodies often store extra fat in the chin area. Do you hate the thought of looking in the mirror because you have a double chin? Then Kybella® could be the right solution for you, and that solution is now available at Sood Center. Kybella® is a revolutionary treatment designed to specifically target and eliminate the submental fat that causes a double chin. Patients can visit board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood to receive this treatment in a safe and comfortable environment.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that utilizes injections to reduce the amount of fat under your chin, thus improving the appearance of a “double chin.” It is the only FDA-approved treatment to target this specific area of concern. The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid which is identical to the deoxycholic acid naturally produced by the body. Deoxycholic acid works by absorbing fat, thereby allowing Kybella® to destroy fat cells in the targeted area. Once these cells are destroyed, they are no longer able to store fat. In addition, they are unable to gain back the fat they once held, therefore making Kybella® an extremely effective solution for eliminating unwanted fat.

What are the Benefits of Kybella®?

Kybella® offers a non-surgical solution to a problem that, in the past, would have been treated with invasive surgery and liposuction. Kybella® zeros in on fat cells, literally melting them away to reduce the appearance of the dreaded double chin. One of the reasons people seek out Kybella® treatment is to improve their outward appearance in order to experience an increase in their self-esteem. While having a double chin may seem like one of the more insignificant cosmetic conditions, 80 percent of people with a double chin report a desire to get rid of it. Kybella® is a simple, pain-free means to contour the facial profile and gain confidence by getting rid of a negative aspect of your appearance. Past Kybella® patients of Dr. Sood report feeling an overwhelming increase in self-confidence and self-esteem as a result of undergoing their treatment.

Who is a Candidate for Kybella®?

Having extra fat under your chin and at the top of your neck can cause you to be self-conscious and may often be uncomfortable, as well as interfering with your ability to perform certain activities, such as golfing, reading, or playing the violin. A double chin is a common problem that now has an incredible solution. More than 80 percent of people who have a double chin are bothered by it. If you are part of this 80 percent, you may be a good candidate for Kybella®.

What is the Kybella® Procedure?

Your Kybella™ experience will be uniquely tailored to your needs and desired results by Dr. Sood. During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sood, the number of sessions needed and number of injections to be used will be decided in order to map out your personalized course of treatment. Every treatment session takes place in our office in a comfortable reclining chair. A local anesthetic will be administered to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Afterward, you may be asked to remain at the office for a few minutes so that Dr. Sood can be sure you aren’t experiencing any adverse reactions, namely, nerve weakness or swelling. The procedure itself is quick, and you may resume working and other normal daily activities immediately following your appointment. A noticeable difference in your chin profile is generally achieved after two to four separate treatment sessions. It is important that you maintain patience post-treatment. The swelling you experience will take some time to go down before you are able to appreciate your results.

How Much Does Kybella® Cost?

The cost of Kybella® injections depends on the amount of medication needed to correct your unique facial wrinkles. During your consultation, Dr. Sood will discuss the cost and your payment options, which can include cash, personal checks, credit cards, and CareCredit® financing.

Why Choose Dr. Mohit Sood for Kybella®?

Dr. Mohit Sood’s years of training as a plastic surgeon will come in especially handy when performing Kybella® injections since his carefully trained eye will help deliver exactly the right amount of product precisely where it is needed to obtain maximum results.
