Kybella™

Kybella™, now available at Dr. Berg's practice in Wilmington, DE,  is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment used in adults to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as "double chin" or submental fat. Kybella is administered in a 15- to 20-minute in-office treatment session that is customized to help you achieve your treatment goals. Once your desired look is achieved, re-treatment is not expected.

How does Kybella™ work?

The main active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected into the fat beneath your chin, the deoxycholic acid aids in the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Most patient treated with Kybella™ experience visible improvements of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. 

What can I expect after treatment with Kybella™?

For most patients, downtime after surgery was minimal and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. As with other injectable treatments, there may be side effects when being treated with Kybella™, including swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. The incidence and severity of most side effects decreased with subsequent treatments. Prior to treatment, Dr. Berg may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anesthesia to make you as comfortable as possible. Some patients may also want to take an over-the-counter pain reliever before the appointment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.
