The FDA approved Kybella injections in 2015 for the reduction of excess fat accumulated under the chin. In recent times, a few experienced Kybella med spa treatment providers are also providing Kybella for non-label use, such as removal of stubborn fat from the thigh area.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by the judicious board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Kybella injections to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations across the horizon.
Kybella’s Action for Fat Elimination
Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxychoilic acid, which is naturally found in the gastrointestinal tract and performs the function of fat metabolizing. Kybella medication permanently destroys the targeted fat cells and triggers the production of new collagen to produce slimmer, firmer contours around the outer thighs.
The key is to ensure that Kybella drug is precisely injected into the area where fat tissue is present. If the provider inadvertently injects it into the skin tissue, it could also destroy the healthy skin cells.
Therefore, patients should ideally choose a med spa provider for Kybella who is a board certified plastic surgeon with a well-known practice.
Permanent Fat Reduction in Outer Thighs
The fat destroying molecules in Kybella are injected directly into the fatty tissue in the outer thigh area. The medication works to eliminate fat cells, which will not re-grow in the future. Fat cells once destroyed in an adult will not be regenerated later on. They are gone for good.
However, patients should be aware that if they gain weight in the future, the remaining fat cells in the high area can grow larger in size and re-inhabit the treated sites.
Following the fat cell destruction, the process of new collagen generation (neocollagenesis) is triggered to create a tighter and firmer skin appearance in the thighs.
Therefore, the sagging skin appearance due to elimination of fat gets restored due to new collagen fibers, which work from inside to create more natural looking, smooth and youthful thighs.
Ensuring Patient Comfort during Treatment
The treatment provider may decide to administer a local anesthetic in the thigh area before starting the Kybella injections. If the treatment is required in a larger surface area or multiple area, involving many injections, the provider may also consider using mild sedation in some cases. However, Kybella treatment will not involve general anesthesia.
Choosing an Expert Injector
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable procedure to permanently eliminate subcutaneous fat cells in the outer thighs and other areas. The key is to deliver the Kybella medication precisely into the targeted fat cells to cause their disintegration. However, if the provider mistakenly places the injections in other sites, it could destroy the healthy skin cells.
To achieve healthy, sustainable, and aesthetically appealing results with Kybella injections, patients should choose an experienced injector. Preferably, the treatment should be performed under the supervision and guidance of a salient board certified plastic surgeon.
Temporary Side Effects
Treatment from an expert injector will usually result in minimal side effects that will dissipate quickly. Minor bruising, swelling and numbness in the injected sites may occur, which will resolve on its own.
