Harness the Power of Kybella® to Smooth Away Unwanted Lumps!
You’ve probably heard about the amazing injectable designed to minimize excess fat causing the appearance of a double chin. But wait, why can’t this same treatment be used to target fat elsewhere? In fact, it can! That’s right: Kybella®’s amazing fat-targeting abilities aren’t just limited to submental fat. This state-of-the-art injectable can work anywhere you have small, localized pockets of soft, fatty tissue. Yes, anywhere!
In addition to minimizing the appearance of submental fat under the chin (or the so-called “double chin”), Kybella® is an easy injectable treatment that can actually reduce the appearance of small, soft pockets of excess fat just about anywhere*, especially:
- Bra fat / upper back rolls
- Armpits / upper arms above the breat
Kybella® injections can also be a highly effective follow-up treatment to traditional liposuction, minimizing any remaining lumps of fatty tissue and smoothing and enhancing your liposuction results.
At Motykie Med Spa, with offices in both Beverly Hills, California and Barrington, Illinois, our goal is to utilize today’s cutting-edge cosmetic techniques to enhance your health, your appearance, and your well-being. Working closely with Dr. Gary Motykie, Board certified plastic surgeon, we only offer treatments and procedures that we feel certain will work, and will work safely. Although Kybella® is only FDA-approved for use under the chin, it is both safe and legal to use Kybella® “off-label” to target fatty tissue in other areas of the body. Our highly skilled and experienced staff will work closely with you to ensure that you understand the benefits and risks of this powerful injectable treatment.

How Kybella® Works
Kybella® is an advanced injectable involving a precise formulation of prescription-strength deoxycholic acid. The body naturally produces deoxycholic acid in order to remove dietary fat. However, when this powerful substance is injected directly into unwanted fat cells in the skin, it destroys the cell membranes, allowing the body to painlessly and comfortably reabsorbed the burst cells. And once a fat cell is eliminated, it cannot grow back, leaving you with a smooth, shapely physique!*
*Individual results may vary. Fat reduction is never permanent. Kybella® can destroy fat cells, but remaining fat cells can continue to grow and expand.
