Your KYBELLA Procedure
When you arrive at LUX Med Spa at Buckhead Plastic Surgery, our first priority is to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed. Our master injector customizes a treatment plan based on a physical examination of your neck and the cosmetic goals you describe. Fat below the chin – called submental fat – accumulates for a number of reasons. In many cases the men and women we treat with KYBELLA are in good shape but are genetically prone to developing a double chin.
Your injector begins the procedure by marking specific injections sites in a grid-like pattern. A topical anesthetic is applied before the injections to help you remain comfortable throughout the treatment. A treatment session includes multiple injections to get the desired results. Because our injector customizes each treatment, the number of injections varies from patient to patient. Between 20 and 30 injections is fairly typical.
Because KYBELLA works by gradually destroying fat cells, you won’t notice results immediately after the treatment. Most patients require more than 1 treatment session and optimal results typically occur after 2 to 4 treatments. Sessions are scheduled at least a month apart. Swelling is expected in the first several days after the injections, along with some mild discomfort that can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Each patient’s experience is unique and swelling may last longer in some cases.
