Kybella is a revolutionary injectable treatment by Allergan that is specifically formulated to reduce excess fat in the submental area (where the upper neck meets the chin) to reduce the appearance of an unsightly "double chin." Kybella is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to help patients who have stubborn pockets of fat in their upper neck with nonsurgical neck liposuction. Baltimore patients are now able to receive Kybella treatments from board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Janet Woodyard. To give each patient their best results, Dr. Woodyard will perform a consultation to discuss the patient's concerns and goals before helping the patient determine if Kybella injections or surgical neck liposuction is best for their treatment plan.
"Dr. Woodyard, I sincerely would like to thank you such a kind and patient person and doctor that you are. You make sure that things are understood by the patient and explained thoroughly. Thank you for not being one of many "Stuffy" doctors that we have in healthcare. I would also like to inform you of the professional, very patient and friendly staff. I call the office five times in one day and the hospitality is always the same. They are the poster children of "Customer friendly". I really appreciate you and excited to have experienced you are my doctor."- L / Office Visit / Nov 14, 2017

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, works by destroying the dietary fat in the submental area. It will take 2 – 6 treatment sessions for patients to get their best results, but 79% of patients in clinical trials were satisfied from the final results of their Kybella treatments and they reported feeling that they looked younger, happier, and more confident.
During/After the Procedure
The plastic surgeon will clean the area to be treated and then carefully make multiple injections under the chin with the Kybella. Patients generally begin to see results after 2 – 4 treatment sessions, but if needed, patients can have up to 6 Kybella treatments with no more than a 4 week break between sessions. Many patients report minor, temporary side effects after their treatment, including pain, redness, numbness, swelling, and bruising.

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs
Once the Kybella treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
Kybella has been approved by the FDA, scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with Kybella. Patients should disclose their full medical history during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. Kybella is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
Kybella Vs. Liposuction?
Kybella neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. We will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
