Injection Lipolysis with Kybella® and PCDC
Kybella® deoxycholate injection is made by Allergan and is a FDA-approved medication for dissolving and reducing specifically double chin fat (more politely known as “submental fullness”), in order permanently to permanently “lighten” fullness of the upper neck under the jawline. PCDC stands for phosphatidyl choline and deoxycholate. A standardized mixture is not as yet FDA-approved but the proportion used at this office has been used for injection lipolysis for many years. It does require compounding at special pharmacies and must be prescribed specifically for each patient.
Kybella® or Compounded PCDC may be right for you if:
- You are bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by localized areas of fat accumulation
- You feel this condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You eat well and exercise, and perhaps even lose weight and inches, but the localized fatty area does not seem to go away
- You don’t want to have surgery or perhaps have had liposuction or laser or ultrasound fat reduction procedure and some irregularity remains
