What is KYBELLA?
Even a tiny bit of extra fat in the upper throat area can cause the appearance of a "double chin." Unfortunately, a double chin can create embarrassment for many people. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can occur because of aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics. These factors may cause a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. At Forma Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeons in Scottsdale, AZ proudly offer an injection to reduce the appearance of neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical double chin injection. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which works like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After injecting it underneath the chin, patients can see a noticeable decrease in fat. When the fat dissolves, the cells do not re-form so you can enjoy your new, slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.
"In August of 2021 I was diagnosed with breast cancer which required a mastectomy to remove a very large tumor which in my case had not yet turned invasive. Although I was blessed on the cancer not spreading the size of a 11cm tumor removal would leave my chest highly disfigured especially because the nipple needed to be removed. Brenda Morthy my oncologist surgeon who in her own right is the best there is only wanted me to visit with one breast reconstruction surgeon - Dr. Walsh. Dr. Walsh was able to make something out of my left over breast no one thought possible. To this day what I find shocking is how humble she is and the fact she isn’t out there advertising her services just for money, but yet anyone you talk to in the world of cancer or complicated reconstruction cases to a one will tell you, "Dr. Walsh is the very best, there is no better". I believe someone was watching over me in all the doctors I met in my journey with the most talented being Dr. Molly Walsh."- S.R. / Yelp / Aug 09, 2022
"Great experience with Dr. Sabeeh. He is very personable, listened to my concerns and gave his best advice/opinion. Office staff are friendly and helpful."- M.C. / Google / Jun 28, 2022
"These guys are amazing! This was my first experience with plastic surgery and I could not be happier. Dr. Yao did my upper eyelids (upper bilateral blepharoplasty) and it really changed the way I look. My eyelids were pretty close to touching my upper lashes prior to surgery. As you can see after surgery my eyes look "open" again. Every person in the office is so caring and professional. It feels like they really are a family. From the consult through the entire process, they really make you feel special."- J.L. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2021

"Dr. Molly Walsh is the best plastic surgeon in AZ. She’s professional, personable and has impeccable bedside manner. She’s a very experienced and accomplished surgeon and her work speaks for itself. She’s a miracle worker, perfectionist, very thorough and one of the nicest most humble surgeons I’ve ever met. She did an impeccable and impressive job. I would rate her 10 stars ?? if it were possible. Highly recommended!! "- R.L. / Healthgrades / Jan 23, 2021
What are the benefits of KYBELLA?
Small pockets of fat beneath the chin can be difficult to target with diet and exercise alone. Even if you are at a healthy weight and eat a balanced diet, some fat may remain in this area. KYBELLA can reduce unwanted fat without resorting to surgical options like liposuction. Injections are minimally invasive and involve little pain and downtime. Our professionals at Forma Plastic Surgery have years of experience with KYBELLA and can help you achieve the slimmer facial profile you desire.
Who is a candidate for KYBELLA?
Ideal candidates for KYBELLA have a moderate amount of fat below the chin and are not interested in or ready for an invasive cosmetic procedure. This nonsurgical injectable is perfect for anyone who wants to improve their appearance without surgery or downtime. KYBELLA candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their results. Patients should undergo a health evaluation at Forma Plastic Surgery to ensure their eligibility. Our surgeons will examine the treatment area and develop a personalized plan to achieve your desired results.
What to Expect with KYBELLA Injections
A member of our team will complete your KYBELLA injections in one of our spacious treatment rooms. At the beginning of your treatment, you will receive a numbing gel to reduce any discomfort. Once your skin is numbed and cleaned, the injection takes around 15 minutes to complete. We place several small injections throughout the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to achieve their goal while others may want a few injections spaced three weeks apart.
After we complete your treatment, you can resume your regular routine. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising under your chin, but these effects shouldn't last longer than a couple of days. Please call Forma Plastic Surgery immediately if you feel any unusual side effects, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or an uneven smile. While the fat that we eliminate doesn't return, the cells that remain can get larger so you should maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming.
