Kybella is a non-surgical treatment widely used to get rid of excess neck fat. This injectable drug consists of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that absorbs fats. Approved by the FDA in 2015, Kybella quickly garnered praise for offering an effective and non-invasive alternative to surgery and liposuction to eliminate double chins. Apart from removing fat this treatment also produces a tightening effect on the neck skin.
This cosmetic procedure is considered to be safe and requires only two to three visits with each treatment taking approximately 15 minutes. While this procedure is brief and minimally-invasive, it is known to produce enduring effects; once fat cells are absorbed by the drug, they disappear permanently. The recovery period lasts only two to three days with no bandages required.
