Visiting the Northside Plastic Surgery Center is always a pleasure. Beautiful facility, competent and compassionate professionals. I highly recommend. - K. D.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved medication used to destroy fat cells in the neck, commonly referred to as a double chin.

Is it nonsurgical?

It is a nonsurgical treatment performed in the office without any anesthesia and takes less than 10 minutes to perform. No pain medicine is required after the treatment and individuals can drive themselves home immediately afterwards. Our Atlanta Kybella procedure is a nonsurgical alternative to neck liposuction.

Who’s a candidate?

The best candidates are individuals with excess neck fat without excess neck skin. Kybella only destroys fat cells, it doesn’t improve sagging skin that sometimes accompanies a double chin, nor does it tighten loose skin.

If you have loose skin, you can still use Kybella; however, a tightening procedure, such as Ultherapy, may be needed to prevent the loose skin from sagging after the fat has dissolved.

Can I see a simulated result before treatment?

The Vectra XT 3D simulation technology at Northside Plastic Surgery can show you your potential Kybella result before having the treatment performed. It can be usually performed at your consultation.

How many treatments are required?

Kybella is an injectable treatment and requires anywhere from 2 to 4 sessions, 4 weeks apart for the best results. The entire treatment usually takes 3 months. On average, 2 vials are required per treatment.

What are the side effects?

In addition to destroying fat cells, Kybella can rarely also affect nerves, glands, and muscle. Kybella should only be injected by a professional who understands the specific anatomy of the neck to avoid injury to other nearby structures. Dr. Majmundar performs these procedures himself.

Kybella is an injectable treatment but we inject it with one of the smallest needles on the market so bruising is rare. Kybella does create some inflammation and swelling after the treatment.

This is a good thing as the body needs to be able to absorb the fat cells destroyed by each treatment. Swelling usually lasts 3 days. The more fat you have, the more swelling you can have, but, again, this is a good thing as we want our bodies to absorb the destroyed fat cells.

The more fat that’s destroyed per treatment, the quicker you will achieve the desired result. Allergic reactions are unusual as the medication, deoxycholic acid, is a natural occurring substance made by your liver to remove natural dietary fat.

What will my recovery be like?

While you may see some of the side effects described above, there is no recovery from Kybella in the typical sense. You will be able to leave the office immediately and return to your normally scheduled activities, and you will not be limited in any way by your treatment. It really is that simple.

What is the cost of Kybella?

Costs for Kybella will vary, based on how many injections you receive, and on whether you undergo any skin tightening treatments such as Ultherapy at the same time, for instance. The doctor will calculate your individual fees in detail during your consultation and give you the most accurate quote possible. We will also help you to apply for financing from a variety of trusted healthcare lenders.

Practice Update re: COVID-19 situation

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the corona virus, we have taken the following additional measures to protect our patients:

  1. Until April 30, 2020, we are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for all new patients.
  2. Our teams are receiving ongoing briefings, trainings, and enhanced operating protocols as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
  3. We are introducing the “No ‘waiting’ waiting room”. In general, we are reducing waiting times; but also, as a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our larger size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing and the number of individuals in each reception area.
  4. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
  5. We are asking all patients and staff members to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer when entering the office and exam rooms.
  6. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we are not subject to actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  7. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until mid-April.
  8. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the corona virus
  9. We are instructing staff to welcome our patients with a nod or wave instead of fist bumps, elbow bumps, or handshakes.
  10. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please cancel and reschedule your appointments. We advise you to call your family doctor if you have any of these symptoms. Also, if you have recently traveled to a country with high rates of the corona virus or have been on a cruise, please reschedule your visit for at least 14 days from the time of your visit.
  11. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
