Dr. Kris Reddy FACS utilizes Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that utilizes contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.
Kybella is a nonsurgical, 15 to 20 minute in office treatment session used to reduce moderate to severe fat in the upper neck, also known as a "double chin." Dr. Reddy can customize the Kybella to meet your goals and objectives. Kybella destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved achieved, re-treatment is not expected. The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which eats away at fat. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. Using Kybella for treatment on areas other than the double chin is not approved nor recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions: Kybella West Palm Beach
Question: What is Kybella?
Answer: KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA approved prescription injectable medication used in adults to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called a “double chin.”
It is made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Kybella is the trade name for ATX-101, a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally found in our body and helps metabolize dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the submental region, it disrupts the cell membrane of the localized fat cells and the fat cells are removed through the metabolic process.
Question: What areas can be treated with Kybella?
Answer: The FDA approved area for the use of Kybella™ is the subcutaneous fat in the submental region, or the area under the chin known as the “double chin” region.
Question: Are there any off-label uses for Kybella? If so, are they safe?
Answer: The safety and efficacy for the use of Kybella™ for fat outside the submental region has not been established and not recommended.
Kybella vs. liposuction for double chin? Which would you recommend and what is the difference?
There are many considerations when determining which procedure would be more appropriate for each patient. Both of the above mentioned procedures remove fat cells from the treatment area. Treatment with Kybella™ is a good option for patients who do not wish to have surgery. Both liposuction and Kybella™ are curative procedures and permanently remove a number of fat cells.
The most obvious difference is that lipo is a surgical procedure and Kybella is an injectable procedure. The Kybella™ treatment is less invasive than liposuction, but does typically require more than one treatment. Whereas lipo is generally a single procedure, Kybella typically takes 2-4 treatments with less downtime than lipo. Treatment with Kybella is limited to the “double chin” or submental area. If there is a substantial amount of fat outside of the treatment area, or if the patient has skin laxity, a surgical intervention might be more appropriate. The best way to determine which procedure would be right for you is to schedule a consultation so we can evaluate the treatment area and discuss the treatment options in depth.
Question: What is recovery like for Kybella injections?
Answer: Downtime with Kybella is minimal. Most patients tolerate this procedure very well. As with any injection, there is always a risk of some swelling and tenderness to the touch, that is generally dependent on the amount of subcutaneous fat that was treated. This is typically resolves in 7-10 days. Other side effects can include bruising and temporary numbness.
Question: How long do results from Kybella injections last?
Answer: The destruction of fat cells is permanent and the fat cells that are destroyed are permanently removed from the body. Once the desired aesthetic correction is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not anticipated.
Question: What do I do if I gain weight after using Kybella?
Answer: While a Kybella™ treatment removes a number of fat cells in the submental area, there are still some fat cells remaining. The remaining fat cells can still expand with weight gain. However, there are less fat cells remaining so the fullness should be to a lesser degree if there was significant weight gain so the contour will still be improved due to the fat cells that have been removed with the Kybella treatments.
Question: How long is a Kybella treatment?
Answer: The actual treatment is usually completed in approximately 15-20 minutes. However, we do apply a topical anesthetic on the treatment area prior to the procedure. So, the entire time in the office is typically 30-45 minutes.
Question: How many Kybella treatments do I need to see results?
Answer: The amount of treatments required will vary significantly from person to person. An average of 2-4 treatments are typically needed. It takes about 4 weeks to begin to see the results from a treatment, and treatments are typically spaced about 6 weeks apart. Typically the amount of product needed for each treatment will decrease for subsequent treatments.

Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon, can address this triangle of age either surgically with procedures such as facelift, fat transfer to the face, and/or chin liposuction. Alternatively, Dr. Reddy can address the triangle of aging with dermal fillers such as voluma and/or nonsurgical fat reduction procedures such as Coolsculpting or kybella. Laser resurfacing procedures as Halo also helps. Some typical signs of aging include loss of collagen, formation of lines and wrinkles, drooping skin in the cheeks, brown spots and rough skin texture, and sagging skin on the jawline.
Live Your Life Forever Young
"Live Your Life Forever Young” is one of Dr. Reddy's unique concepts which he derived partially from the research and publication of Dr. Anne Lynn S. Chang of the Stanford University School of Medicine as published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology and scientists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD of Harvard University.
As applied at his AAAASF nationally accredited center, “Live Your Life Forever Young” means providing patients significant transformation without needing them to alter their lifestyle.
Some of the key procedures that would fall under this concept include Coolsculpting which is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment for fat reduction (Dr. Reddy has the only Certified Coolsculpting Center in West Palm Beach), Halo Laser Resurfacing which is widely recognized as the first major advance in laser resurfacing in 2 decades (Dr. Reddy has the only Halo Laser in West Palm Beach and treats appropriate patients with traditional laser), and Nonsurgical Facelift utilizing Voluma, Juvederm, Volbella, Vollure, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne/Defyne, and Radiesse. Dr. Reddy is a an experienced and expert physician injector.
