Overview

Men and women alike love the fat reducing effects of Kybella injections. At our plastic surgery office in Denver, CO we can provide you with a revolutionary way to slim your neckline by decreasing the amount of fat under your chin without neck liposuction. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Manish Shah, may need to perform several treatment sessions before achieving the desired result, however, the outcome of those injections will bring you fabulously younger looking skin, and slimmer facial profile. When diet and exercise won't rid you of that dreaded "double chin," you can destroy that fat with deoxycholic acid, the main ingredient found in Kybella. Call today to schedule a consultation to see if this is an injectable that is right for you.

Procedure Technique

Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.

I feel like a new person - As someone of normal weight who has always had a "fat" face, I was tired of trying to contour in a jawline and cheekbones. I tried Kybella in December of 2017 and it did nothing. In addition to this, I have always had a recessed chin and no amount of contour can make a chin magically appear. I finally decided to take the steps and get a tiny bit of liposuction in addition to a chin implant....

As someone of normal weight who has always had a "fat" face, I was tired of trying to contour in a jawline and cheekbones. I tried Kybella in December of 2017 and it did nothing. In addition to this, I have always had a recessed chin and no amount of contour can make a chin magically appear. I finally decided to take the steps and get a tiny bit of liposuction in addition to a chin implant. Dr. Shah explained the process to me and out of all the doctors I contacted, I chose him due to his professionalism and non-salesy attitude. I don't want to be sold procedures—I want to be informed and given the ability to decide what is best for me, and this is exactly what Dr. Shah did. Dr. Shah and his colleagues gave me a good idea of what the procedure would feel like and helped me through each step of my procedure and recovery. I am now 2 months out and I feel like a new person.Updated on 3 Mar 2019:Here are some photos! I would say the recovery process wasn't too painful, but it was not pain free or easy. There was a decent amount of bruising and some pain/numbness from the lipo that still lingers. Everything seems to be healing well, though, and I can't wait for the final results.

About Us
Other Areas?

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and a plastic surgeon will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.

Restrictions?

Before receiving Kybella injections, the doctor will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.

How It Works?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot return.
