Kybella

The Lake Nona Ophthalmology Med Spa features Kybella®, the newest, non-surgical injectable used to treat the double chin. Dr. Chirag Patel is one of the few physicians in Orlando that are trained in the procedure.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.

Kybella® is a formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat, reducing the appearance of a double chin. Before Kybella® was created, the only way to remove fat from under the chin was through a procedure called liposculpture.

What to Expect With Kybella® Treatment

You and Dr. Patel will design a treatment plan tailored to help you improve your chin profile. During your treatment sessions, Dr. Patel will administer Kybella® into the fat under your chin using tiny injections.

Many patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions. Up to six treatment sessions may be administered, spaced no less than one month apart. In all, the treatment can take four to six months.

The number of injections and the number of treatments should be tailored to the individual patient’s submental fat distribution and treatment goals. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Dr Patel saved my vision. I cannot thank him enough! The first week of January I suffered a pretty horrific eye injury playing Dek Hockey. I was struck directly in my left eye by a hard plastic ball traveling at 30-40mph. I was immediately blind in my left eye as it filled with blood. I went to the ER at ORMC and Dr Patel was called when it was determined by CT scan that I had a 5mm tear on my eyeball on the back side. He arrived to the hospital very quickly after they called him. He took me to surgery and repaired my torn eyeball. Discharged me at 330am and saw me back at his office for a follow up 7hrs later. He referred me to a retina specialist for further evaluation. I’m happy to say that not only has my vision returned as of yesterday I’m 20/25 in an eye that I was blind in not too long ago. He’s amazing. Thank you Dr Patel for being there 24/7 for those in need of your services!!
