Kybella

Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after Plastic Surgeons in Palm Beach for patients who desire Kybella. This product helps restore a youthful and defined neck by reducing or eliminating the unwanted double chin. Having a double chin can create the appearance of being overweight, tired, and unhealthy. Kybella is an alternative for patients who want improved neck and underchin contour without the need for surgery. Dr. Rueda is well known for his unique and novel technique for injection that minimizes bruising. He performs these injections guided by a special machine that helps the needle avoid any veins in the face and thereby greatly reduce the chance of bleeding or bruising.

HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?

Kybella’s active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the digestive system. It is made and processed synthetically and packaged for injection with syringes. This substance is injected into the fatty tissue under the chin and destroys the fat cells in the area. The elimination of fat cells and fat leads to a decrease in the bulgy appearance of the neck (common known as double chin).

HOW MUCH KYBELLA DO I NEED?

The amount of Kybella needed depends on the desired effect and amount of fatty tissue under the chin. Most patients need multiple sessions ranging from 2-6 treatments to achieve the desired effect. Dr. Rueda performs the initial injection and follows the contour improvement in the neck and under chin area. The injections can be repeated at least 1 month apart until the desired contour is achieved.

RECOVERY AND DOWNTIME

Injections with Kybella are performed in the office. There is swelling in the neck and chin area that last between 1-10 days in most patients. Multiple injections may be needed, and results are seen between 2-4 months after the procedure.

There is no downtime with Kybella injections! Patients are asked to abstain from exercise and laying down for 24 hours to prevent migration of the substance. The swelling in the neck and chin usually peaks at 1-2 days and most patients decide to postpone social gatherings for 1-3 days.

The cost of Kybella varies from patient to patient depending on the type of substance, amount needed, and areas treated. At Precision, we make sure we provide you with an accurate personalized price that will cover all costs needed for you to obtain a fantastic result.
