What is KYBELLA?
Just a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area can create the look of a "double chin" and cause embarrassment. The excess pockets of fat beneath the chin is caused by multiple factors, such as aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations. This can lead to a softer jawline and chin, creating a less defined profile. At Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK, Dr. Angelo Cuzalina provides a revolutionary treatment that eliminates neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical option for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which dissolves and absorbs fat cells. Once injected underneath the chin, it decreases the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells cannot return so you can enjoy your slim neck and tighter jawline for many years.
What are the benefits of KYBELLA?
A double chin can be very difficult to improve through diet and exercise alone. Many people feel self-conscious about the extra fat and may even avoid certain social events and situations. KYBELLA can give you back your confidence by targeting the tough-to-lose fat beneath your chin. This nonsurgical treatment is quick, easy, and requires minimal downtime. Patients choose to work with Tulsa Surgical Arts because our team has years of experience performing KYBELLA injections and knows how to produce beautiful, natural-looking results.
Is KYBELLA For You?
The best patients for KYBELLA treatments have excess fat in the upper neck or submental area, which causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. KYBELLA addresses stubborn sections of fat, which patients can find difficult to reduce with normal weight loss routines. A double chin may be difficult to eliminate because of genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but diet and exercise don't seem to work, KYBELLA could help you achieve your cosmetic goals. While KYBELLA is used to treat small to moderate pockets of fat in the submental area, larger pockets may require liposuction.
"Dr. Cuzalina and his entire staff have been so incredible to me. I wish I could give more than just 5 stars. I’ve lost 135 pounds and they did my tummy tuck! Not only this, but they did it completely free to me after applying for Dr. Cuzalina’s complimentary surgery. Never once did I feel as if I was treated any differently than patients who paid. Each member of the staff was so incredibly kind, caring, and made sure to let me know they were there for me! They gave me their personal cell phone numbers to be able to access them outside of regular office hours if I had any issues. My stomach has never been flat my entire 23 years of life, and now it is thanks to Tulsa Surgical Arts! Down the line I hope to get skin removal on my arms and thighs as well, and I know without a shadow of a doubt I will be returning to their office when I can afford it. Thank you all so very much for changing my life. Words can’t describe how grateful I am for all of you."- S.H. / Google / Oct 20, 2020

Our KYBELLA Injection Technique
We perform KYBELLA injections in one of our private treatment rooms. At the beginning of your appointment, Dr. Cuzalina will clean your skin to eliminate oils or lotions. If needed, he can apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. Usually, we can complete your KYBELLA injections in about 15 – 20 minutes. To achieve your desired results, we place several small injections underneath the chin. Some patients may require a single treatment while others need several follow-up sessions scheduled three weeks apart.
What to Expect
KYBELLA does not require general anesthesia so you can leave our office after the procedure. You can also return to your daily routine without recovery time. Patients may experience some bruising, numbness, or swelling beneath the chin; however, this should subside in 2 – 3 days. Please call Tulsa Surgical Arts if you have any unusual side effects, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or uneven expressions. The eliminated fat will not regenerate, but the remaining cells could become larger. To maintain your results, we highly recommend keeping a steady weight after your KYBELLA treatments. After your procedure, your neck should look tighter and slimmer and your profile more defined.
Is KYBELLA safe?
KYBELLA is considered safe for most people when administered by a skilled professional. However, there are a few potential side effects you should be aware of. These include temporary bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site. In rare cases, people may experience headaches, nausea, or allergic reactions. Speak with our team if you have any concerns.
How do I prepare for KYBELLA?
You don't need to do anything special to prepare for KYBELLA. Just avoid taking aspirin, ibuprofen, or other blood-thinning medications or supplements before your appointment. Our team members at Tulsa Surgical Arts can provide additional information and guidance during an assessment. We'll make sure you're ready for your procedure.
Will my KYBELLA results look natural?
Our cosmetic specialists always aim for natural-looking results when it comes to KYBELLA. We have helped countless patients achieve a slimmer appearance without looking "done" or artificial. The key is to receive the right amount of KYBELLA for your individual needs. We tailor each treatment to help you achieve subtle and beautiful results.
