Does Fat Come Back After Kybella Treatment?

Kybella is an injectable fat dissolving treatment that can remove small portions of fat. It currently is most commonly used to address chin fat. However, since it is a non-surgical procedure versus the alternative surgical procedure of liposuction, prospective patients often ask, “Does fat come back after Kybella treatment?”

Treating fat under the chin with Kybella usually requires more than one session to see the desired results. Once the Kybella successfully dissolves the fat, the dissolved fat cells are gone for good. However, this does mean that with weight gain the remaining fat cells will not expand, or that fat will not appear in places not treated with Kybella.

Thus, the answer to the question is technically yes, but that does not mean it is necessarily straightforward. It is important after any fat removal procedure to maintain your weight and avoid gaining significant weight. Even losing weight can affect your results, so you should seek out Kybella treatment once you are at or near your goal weight, if you are working on losing weight.
