Kybella® Treatment Details
The procedure itself takes 15 to 20 minutes and is performed in the office with local anesthesia to provide optimal comfort. A single session may involve 8 to 50 injections in the treatment area, depending on the treatment area size, placed with precision, to ensure maximum patient safety and results.
Patients may experience some bruising and should expect swelling after their Kybella® procedure. This can be controlled with Motrin and ice packs; Nurse Injector Robyn J. Berger will provide the details of exactly what to expect during a thorough consultation. Other potential side effects include temporary discomfort or numbness at the injection site. During your consultation, Nurse Injector Robyn Berger will discuss what to expect in the days after your treatment session, explaining normal reactions, anticipated number of total treatments to achieve a certain outcome, and the expected timeframe for results.
Fat destruction, and the process of its subsequent removal, can take weeks and months, depending on a patient’s desired look. It usually takes two to four Kybella® treatments, spaced about a month apart, to achieve the full reduction.
The results are expected to be permanent. As with any fat-reduction procedure, slimmer contours are best maintained by avoiding new weight gain after a successful Kybella® treatment.
