What is Kybella?
Just a little extra fat in the upper throat area can cause the appearance of a "double chin" that may be bothersome to both men and women. The additional pockets of fat beneath the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer chin and jawline for a less defined profile. Our Denver, CO team is pleased to offer a revolutionary way to reduce neck fat at Cherry Creek Face and Skin. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid that works like the body's natural DA to break down and absorb fat. Once it's injected under the chin, you can see a noticeable reduction in fat. When the fat is removed, the cells do not return so you are able to enjoy your new, slimmer profile and defined jawline for years to come.

"Thank you Dr. Terkonda! I went in for a chin implant because I inherited my mothers weak chin. Dr. Terkonda and I had a good discussion about the symmetry of my face specifically that I have a round face and the result I was looking for was a more angular masculine jaw line. He explained the difference between a chin implant and genioplasty.He explained how genioplasty would actually pull the muscles attached to the bone in my chin forward and give my face a slightly more angular look. Because of my round face he also performed lipo under my chin and buccal fat removal. It’s been 6 weeks and I am extremely pleased with the results. The recovery was just as he explained, I was out of work only a couple of days and the majority of the swelling was gone in 10 days."- R. / Healthgrades / Jun 18, 2021

"Doctor Terkonda was absolutely excellent in his diagnosis, treatment options explanation, and surgery. Where as I could not breath before because the side of my nose had been crushed from an assault, I can breath well now! Insurance I used at the time was Blue Cross.Dr Terkonda has a great bedside manner, and really cared about me and my outcome. His surgical skills were awesome performing a septoplasty, turbinate reductions, in addition to other items in the same visit. Make sure to consult with this doctor if you need help with your nose and sinuses for breathing, have suffered traumatic injury, or would like cosmetic surgery. The doctor did top-notch care and work from beginning to end."- A. / Healthgrades / May 03, 2021

How does Kybella work?
If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not worked to remove the fat in your submental area, KYBELLA may be the ideal option for your goals. KYBELLA is performed in one of our treatment rooms. We will typically apply a numbing cream to the injection area, if desired, after the skin has been cleaned. The procedure takes around 15 – 20 minutes, which comprises of a few small injections into the submental area. Some patients may need a single treatment to achieve their goal while others may need several injections spaced three weeks between each appointment at Cherry Creek Face and Skin. Injections of KYBELLA don't require general anesthesia so you can leave the office when you feel ready to return to your daily routine. You may have temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising below your chin, although this should not last more than a couple of days. Contact Cherry Creek Face and Skin immediately if you are noticing any unusual side effects, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger so we recommend you keep a stable weight after your KYBELLA injections to maintain your results. Optimal results following this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and sleeker, and your profile will be more defined.
