Kybella®, is a non-human, non-animal derived version of deoxycholic acid, which is a NATURALLY occurring material found in all of us that helps breakdown fat and absorb it.
It was recently approved by the FDA for use to dissolve fat in submental/“double chin” region to improve the overall contour of the neck and jawline.
Kybella is a non-surgical PERMANENT FAT DISSOLVING solution to a heavy neck/jawline. The injection is administer by a select group of doctors who have been trained to assess the proper dosage and frequency to obtain optimal results. Dr. Core is the first in Alabama to be trained.
Kybella is not for everyone but is most effective in patients with consolidated fat deposits and fullness underneath the chin. Patients who have a lot of loose and hanging skin (“turkey neck”) are not good candidates for this procedure, because Kybella is not intended to remove skin. However, patients who have this problem may be candidates to have a neck lift procedure by Dr.Core.
