Kybella Q & A

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a FDA approved series of injections, that destroy the fat cells under the chin. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This naturally occurs in our own bodies to help break down fat. When injected into the fat, under the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a reduction of fullness under the chin.

Who is the best candidate for Kybella?

Dr. Billano recommends Kybella for anyone who has fat under the chin.

Is this a good treatment for Men?

Kybella works for both men and women. In fact Heights Dermatology has treated several couples who decided to do something transformative about their neck fat together.

Should I wait until I lose weight to get it?

No. Patients will see better skin tightening if they have a fat pad under the chin.
