KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved nonsurgical injectable product proven to safely and effectively destroy the fat cells underneath your chin. Simple KYBELLA injections help Austin-area women and men reduce the appearance of fat and fullness that contribute to a double chin.
At The Piazza Center, we believe that beautiful results are enhanced by leading a healthy lifestyle. Our aim is to help you achieve your cosmetic goals and desires. If you live in or around Austin and fat reduction treatments such as KYBELLA interest you, request an in-person or virtual consultation online or call our office at (512) 288-8200.
During your consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rocco Piazza, or our advanced nurse injectors Hayley Peña, RN., and Alison Kothmann, RN, BSN, will talk with you about your goals and discuss your options for treatment. Once you and your provider have determined a treatment plan, your treatment will begin.
Before your treatment, you will have the option to use Pro-Nox™ treatment (laughing gas) to help control any discomfort you may experience. Traditionally, using ice following the treatment provides the majority of our clients with a comfortable treatment.
Once your KYBELLA treatment has been completed, we will provide you with post-injection care instructions. Generally, you will be free to resume your normal activities immediately. After the treatment, you may experience moderate swelling, mild tenderness, and temporary redness. Swelling is expected following treatment for approximately 3 to 7 days, but reactions vary by patient. We often schedule KYBELLA treatments around any special occasions, lifestyle limitations, etc. because of this temporary swelling.
Expect the results created by KYBELLA to last indefinitely. Once patients achieve the desired results, they typically do not need additional treatments in the future.
KYBELLA might be a good choice if you are:
If you are bothered by a lax, crepey “turkey neck,” consider nonsurgical skin tightening with SkinTyte™.

Using an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, KYBELLA works to safely dissolve fat. This ingredient occurs naturally in the digestive tract (a similar molecule is produced by your liver) where its main function is breaking down fat in the foods we eat, making them easier to digest and metabolize. When administered to the fat beneath your skin, deoxycholic acid goes to work breaking down the fat into small enough particles to ensure it’s flushed away by the body.
The short answer is, yes, there are a variety of effective ways to reduce the appearance of fat. However, consulting with your provider will provide a customized treatment plan that takes into consideration your area of concern, desired outcome, lifestyle, and downtime limitations in order to determine the best long-term fat reduction treatment plan for you. Common alternatives to KYBELLA are neck liposuction and CoolSculpting®. The beauty of KYBELLA is the ability to avoid the operating room and to return to normal activity soon after treatment. However, KYBELLA is best designed for small treatment areas such as the chin. Larger areas are better suited for other options.
Over the course of the 4 to 6 weeks following treatment, you should start seeing some changes in the treated area. The targeted fat gradually breaks down and shrinks, leaving behind an attractive, contoured profile.
We will create a tailored treatment plan based on your desired area of treatment. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections in the treatment area. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA treatments. (Almost 60% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.)
