Continue reading to learn all about Kybella, and how it can help you slim and tone this common trouble spot.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is designed to permanently eliminate stubborn fat deposits. It is composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid and dissolves targeted fat cells, which are gradually cleared from the body.

While Kybella was initially introduced to treat double chins, it is now being used to successfully remove resistant fat from the underarms.

Why Consider Armpit Fat Removal with Kybella?

Armpit fat removal with Kybella is a safe, quick, and nonsurgical procedure. It is performed in the comfort of our office and requires zero downtime.

It is well-suited to patients who have been unable to get rid of their bothersome bra bulge through diet and exercise and wish to avoid a surgical procedure like liposuction.

What to Expect from the Procedure?

On the day of your treatment, your underarms will be cleansed and a grid will be applied directly to the skin. This temporary tattoo is meant to mark the injection sites and ensure thorough and even coverage.

Next, Dr. Singh will precisely administer Kybella as a series of small injections. Most patients find this process very tolerable and feel a temporary stinging or burning sensation. The number of Kybella vials injected will depend on the amount of fat removal needed.

Post-treatment, it’s normal to experience mild swelling, which resolves on its own in several days.

However, armpit fat removal with Kybella doesn’t require any downtime, and you are free to go about your day as you usually would.

How Quickly Can Patients See Results from Armpit Fat Removal with Kybella?

It can take up to six-to-eight weeks to notice visible fat reduction in the underarms. Results improve over the next several months and reveal a trimmer and more toned physique.

Best of all, armpit fat removal with Kybella produces permanent results. So, fat in the treated area is gone for good.

Keep in mind that patients may require a series of treatments to achieve optimal outcomes.
