Dr. Mountcastle tailors every patient’s KYBELLA® treatment plan to suit their needs. After assessing the patient’s chin, neck, and profile, Dr. Mountcastle will perform a series of injections. The patient will be able to leave immediately after the procedure and resume their normal activities.
What to Expect?
Patients should expect to have temporary swelling, bruising, mild pain, redness, and numbness for up to 1 week after their treatment. Results will start to appear from 1 week to 1 month after their treatment. Patients may receive up to 6 treatments at least 1 month apart until their best results appear.

Is KYBELLA® permanent?
Once the KYBELLA® treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
Are there any safety concerns with KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® has been approved by the FDA, scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with KYBELLA®. Patients should disclose their full medical history to Dr. Mountcastle during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. KYBELLA® is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
What is the difference between KYBELLA® and liposuction?
KYBELLA® neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but KYBELLA® does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Dr. Mountcastle will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
