I was not aware that I was self-conscious of my chin until it started drooping. My name is Angela and today I’m getting Kybella injections. Two years ago I experienced some trauma in my life, I lost a loved one, I moved across country — the list goes on. Experiencing all that in one month’s time really took a toll on my body. And I think that now I’m on the other end of it two years later and I can see that that had a direct impact on the way that my face looks, particularly around the chin. It almost kind of feels like for the last two years I haven’t looked in a mirror. If there’s a change that I could make today that maybe is a little quick fix, I would do that. Otherwise, I will literally be stuck here doing these neck exercises for I don’t know how long! It’s not gonna work! I’m going to ice you a little bit. Okay Just so that I can numb you and not have you feel it. This is not normally part of the procedure. I am fortunate enough to go see the world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Liotta. She is a boss queen! I am Dr. Dara Liotta and I am a facial plastic surgeon on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Kybella kind of fills a little niche that we didn’t have a good answer for before. It is an in-office, non-invasive treatment that can be done in 10 minutes using a needle and an injection. Even though it’s a non-invasive procedure the results of Kybella are permanent which is another great thing about it. Kybella is deoxycholic acid which is very similar to the acid your body releases to break up fat. I don’t know anybody that has ever had this treatment done. Is this real? Or is this hokum? Dr. Liotta! Help. A. Girl. Out! It’s feeling really exposed at the moment. Kybella will pop those fat cells. And once the fat cells have been liced and removed by your body, you don’t grow new fat cells in the area. So whatever results you get from one treatment of Kybella, two treatments, four treatments of Kybella, it’s all permanent. Each treatment is very specialized and customized to the patient. I am not afraid of needles, really. But this area under here feels like it might be sensitive. Okay, you’re brave! You’re not even gonna feel it because you’re numb. You okay? Mhmm. Pain or no? Uh-uh. Awesome job. (Off-camera) Will you be pinching all of them? I can try not to. Don’t screw up my Kybella treatment! (Off-camera) No, if you are then I’ll move! Oh, I can feel that burning. Oh yes. Yeah. Are you okay? Yeah, no I’m fine. It’ll come — it’ll be better and better. Great. Ta-da! That’s it? That’s it! No way! That’s it! Really? You did it! Cool! It’s been eight weeks since I had the treatment. The treatment itself lasted just a few minutes. It’s very, very, very quick. I didn’t find it more painful than just a pinch with some soreness, just like any other shot. (Off-camera) Oh, this color combo! When I first did it, the swelling was lasting a really, really long time. It looked like I swallowed a potato. I thought, “Is this going to be forever? Am I never going to see the results of this treatment?” Then after six weeks, the swelling started to go down. The fluid started to go — I don’t know, wherever the fluid goes. Then I started to see a noticeable difference in my jawline, which was awesome! Oh yes! Honey! I think that I would definitely do another treatment just to see if I could see a really noticeable difference in it. Thanks for watching! To subscribe to Refinery, click here.
