About Kybella

At Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Tampa, FL we offer Kybella as an advanced treatment for excess fat beneath the chin. Learn more about the benefits of this treatment below.

What is KYBELLA Treatment?

KYBELLA is a medication prescribed by your doctor or plastic surgeon to eliminate excess fat beneath the chin. It’s an injection of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Deoxycholic acid assists the body with breaking down and absorbing dietary fat.

Technically referred to as submental fat and often called a “double chin” by patients, excess fat under the chin can have many causes. In some people, submental fat is present throughout their lives. For others, it only occurs in older age.

Some of the leading causes of submental fat under the chin include:

  • Aging
  • Weight gain
  • Genetic factors

How do KYBELLA injections work?

Deoxycholic acid is a substance found in the body that helps break down fat. When injected beneath the chin, it targets and breaks down submental fat at the injection site to help the body naturally get rid of it. Once fat cells are broken down and absorbed by the body, they can no longer store fat. This process minimizes the presence of under-chin fat. Your doctor may advise multiple treatments to reach your desired results. At least one month should separate each treatment, and you shouldn’t undergo more than six treatments in total. Reach out to our Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa team to learn more about this injectable treatment.

I cannot recommend Dr Watt and his team highly enough. I am now a year postop from my breast augmentation surgery and it has completely changed my life and given me the confidence I've always wanted for myself. Now I am a continued customer and go to Tori as my aesthetician and would highly recommend her to anyone as well. I also now see Jamie for all injections and can honestly say that Dr Watt has put together the most friendly, caring and intelligent team.

Dr. Watt approached my surgery in a way the made me feel comfortable and confident in the end result. I was able to get the support I needed pre & post-surgery. The OR and clinic staff were also fantastic. I’m one month out and already have stellar results from my breast revision. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Over 3 months post op and could not be happier!!! Cannot recommend Dr.Watt enough.

My experience was beyond my expectations at Watt Plastic Surgery. Dr. Girardot is incredible & truly cares about her patients. She takes her time with you during the consult, makes you feel comfortable, and listens to what you want & gives her recommendations based on your breast goals. I was nervous and scared with having a breast reduction & lift but she really made me feel comfortable the day of the surgery & after. The staff was incredible as well. She took her time with measuring out and marking me up the morning of my surgery and my breast look perfect. I highly recommend her to address your needs and concerns for whatever procedures she can preform. Thank you Dr. Girardot for caring and understanding my needs! ❤️

I had a breast augmentation performed by Dr. Girardot. Let me start off by saying Dr. Girardot is AMAZING!! She is highly skilled, knowledgeable, kind and has the best bed side manner (her list can go on!!) I’m so happy with my results, it is exactly what I always imagined them to be. During my initial consultation I felt so confident in Dr. Girardot, she made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. The Watt team is so sweet. They were super helpful pre and post surgery. I can’t thank them enough for following up on me and always answering my questions when I would call in. I will always recommend Dr. Girardot to anyone that is considering plastic surgery. I am forever grateful to have Dr. Girardot as my surgeon. Thank you so much

Had my breast augmentation done here by Dr.Watt and everything went amazing! Still feeling great almost 9 months later. Also got a free 1/2 syringe of lip filler afterwards on the Allē app, done by the incredible Jaime. Just went back for my second round and she never disappoints. Highly recommended if you’re looking for some extra plump in your life :)

About Us
How does KYBELLA work?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA, works to break down and destroy fat cells in the submental area. After the fat cells are eliminated, these cells cannot regenerate. Therefore, additional treatments shouldn't be necessary as soon as you have reached your desired outcome. However, the remaining cells can still grow in size, that is why it's important to maintain a healthy weight to preserve your results.

Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?

No, it cannot. Currently, KYBELLA may only be used to treat the area below the chin to effectively reduce the appearance of a double chin. KYBELLA hasn't been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for any other areas of the face or body.

Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?

There are a few factors that could make you ineligible to receive a KYBELLA treatment. You must be at least 18 years old, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you should not have any infection in or around the treatment site. Before your treatment begins, you are encouraged to be open about your medical history and health concerns with your injector so that they can determine if you may be at risk for an adverse reaction from the treatment.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

In your initial consultation, a customized treatment plan will be developed to address your needs and cosmetic goals. Usually, patients receive between two and four KYBELLA treatments before achieving their goals. KYBELLA appointments must also be spaced about 30 days apart. You should not get any more than six injections in total.
