Kybella™View More Before & Afters
An injectable solution for dissolving chin fat
Schlessinger MD of Omaha was the first in the country to offer Kybella™, an exciting drug that helps to dissolve fat below the jawline in order to minimize the appearance of a double chin. Dr. Joel Schlessinger and his team helped to complete the eight years of extensive research that culminated in Kybella™’s nationwide release, and they have more experience than any other clinic when it comes to administering this breakthrough treatment. The FDA-approved procedure is non-invasive and it can help you enjoy a more sculpted, youthful contour in as little as two treatments. A cost-effective alternative to liposuction, Kybella™ can help you achieve similar results without surgery and with little to no downtime.
Firstly, Dr. Schlessinger’s staff is incredible. Kristen was friendly, attentive and explained things very clearly. Dr. Schlessinger is down to earth and made me feel very comfortable. He was candid and expert in his knowledge of procedures. In all, I visited his office 5 times to complete my assessment/treatments, and I found each visit to be as good as the last. My results were amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to consult with Dr. Schlessinger and his staff if/when I pursue another cosmetic solution.

How does Kybella™ work?
Kybella™ is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to absorb, metabolize and destroy fat. When Kybella™ is injected in the chin area, it has the power to destroy fat cells without harming healthy surrounding skin cells.
Injections are performed in a series of two to six treatments spaced about a month apart. Most patients enjoy noticeable results in two to three treatments.
A Kybella™ procedure
During your Kybella™ procedure, a topical numbing solution is first applied to the neck and chin area. Next, a grid that allows Dr. Schlessinger to make precise injections spaced evenly apart is placed on the skin. Finally, the Kybella™ drug is administered via a series of 12-20 injections. Treatment only takes about 15 minutes, and aside from mild swelling, patients report little pain and no other side effects. Kybella™ carries fewer risks than traditional liposuction and requires little to no downtime.
Can Kybella™ be used to address other areas with unwanted fat?
So far, Kybella™ is only approved for addressing a double chin. Kybella™ works best on small areas, and may be available for other uses in the future.
