What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the only minimally invasive injectable cosmetic treatment on the market made specifically to melt away subdermal fat, or fat underneath the chin. Dr. Lewis and the expert team at Lewis Dermatology & Associates typically recommend patients receive Kybella® to reduce the appearance of their double chin, contour their jawline and help reshape their face to better complement their natural features. Kybella® is a great alternative to invasive surgical procedures like neck liposuction, as there is no cutting, anesthesia or downtime required with each Kybella® treatment. Instead, patients are able to receive dramatic, yet natural-looking results comparable to neck liposuction without having to change up their busy schedule.
How Much does Kybella® Cost?
The price of your Kybella® treatment will vary depending on the size of your treated area, and the amount of product needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your Kybella® treatment will cost, come in for a private consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis and her staff.
What are the Benefits of Kybella®?

- No downtime or recovery period
- No cutting, scarring, or anesthesia
- Dramatically improves the appearance of a double chin
- Contours the jawline
What Can I Expect During my Kybella® Treatment?
Before your Kybella® treatment begins, Dr. Lewis may apply a topical anesthetic to your treated area, typically around the upper third of the face. This will ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, Dr. Lewis will place a stencil under your chin and make a series of strategically placed Kybella® injections into your treated areas. The entire treatment process typically takes under an hour to complete, after which patients are able to return to their normal daily activities including work.
What Results Can I Expect from Kybella®?
Following your Kybella® treatment, you may notice some mild tenderness and swelling around your injection sites. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few days of treatment. Because Kybella® works by slowly dissolving the fat underneath your chin, it may take up to four to six weeks to see the results of your treatment. Dr. Lewis and her team may recommend coming in for multiple Kybella® treatments to help you achieve your ultimate desired results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
If you are looking for a non-surgical alternative to neck liposuction that will reduce your double chin and contour your jawline without the downtime and recovery of traditional plastic surgery, Kybella® may be right for you. The best way to find out if Kybella® treatments are right for you is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Amy B. Lewis. She’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic and skin health goals.
