A unique and remarkable treatment, Kybella is the first of its kind, FDA-approved treatment used to target a “double chin,” which is the moderate to severe fat in the region beneath the chin.
Our triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, can use this safe and effective treatment as an alternative to neck liposuction at Y Plastic Surgery in Atlanta or Alpharetta, GA. This nonsurgical injection uses deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body, to breakdown and destroy fat cells so these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Kybella results are long-term, but subsequent weight loss and gain can affect its effectiveness and longevity. Dr. Yalif may recommend multiple treatments to achieve full results.

What To Expect
A number of small injections will be made in the fat under the chin during this outpatient procedure.
If pain or discomfort will be an issue, a local numbing agent can be administered prior to a Kybella treatment. The treatment typically lasts around 15 – 20 minutes. Since 2 – 6 treatments are usually needed, they will be spaced out about a month apart.

After Kybella Atlanta patients don't go through any downtime, but might experience mild pain, swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the injection site. These side effects could last 2 – 3 days. Some patients may notice a reduction of fat after just a single treatment, but most patients will notice improvements after 2 or 3 treatments.
