  Many women suffer from bra fat problems and if you are one of them you know how frustrating it can be and how insecure it can make you feel. You may have recently lost weight but you still have that dreaded armpit “pooch” or those uncomfortable bra folds around your back. What if you could enjoy your strapless dresses confidently without uncomfortable Spanx-type solutions or costly procedures like liposuction? With Kybella you can enjoy firm, toned skin around your armpits, underarms and back without any serious medical procedures.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an innovative injectable solution, based on a unique chemical formula. It has quickly made a reputation as a reliable product for spot specific fat removal and has even garnered endorsements from celebrities like Khloe Kardashian. The solution works by weakening and eventually breaking fat cells in a particular area. This is made possible due to the presence of deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a synthetic chemical compound that dissolves fat cells and reduces the overall number of fat cells in a region. Once dissolved, the fat cells making up the fatty deposits are metabolized by the body in the injected area. The FDA has approved the use of Kybella for chin touch ups only at the moment. However, medical practitioners are successfully utilizing its stellar spot reduction on areas of stubborn fat, such as knees, lower abdomen and, of course, bra fat.

Usage for Bra Fat Reduction

If you have fat in your underarm, upper chest and arm pit bulging out of your bra strap, Kybella can help lessen its density and in some cases completely remove the excess fat. Ideally, any fat which can be pinched by your fingers can be removed through the injection process. Before any treatment can be provided to you, a consultation with a Kybella certified medical specialist is required to determine if this treatment will be the best option for you. The specialist will then design a tailor-made schedule for your Kybella injections, with a maximum of six possible sessions. Factors like the amount of fat to be removed and the patient’s profile are involved in determining the total number of sessions required. The sessions are typically thirty to thirty-five days apart. Once ready, your Kybella certified specialist will begin your treatment plan in our luxury medical spa environment. Each treatment will last fifteen to twenty minutes. The process itself is basic and non-surgical.

What to Expect from Kybella Treatments

Kybella is great for breaking up subcutaneous fat deposits in smaller areas. It is not as precise as an all-out liposuction but has a considerable impact on spot reduction of fat through noninvasive means. After your Kybella specialist has provided you with a treatment schedule, based on your requirements and body type, it is imperative that you follow the routine without any delays. After every treatment session, you are going to notice a change in the level of fat in the area. You can compare it by pinching the area and notice how the height of the pinch has reduced. While the injections are going to show results from the first few sessions, it is not a long term solution or a cure for bad eating habits and poor lifestyle choices. We recommend using Kybella to help you with stubborn areas and as supplemental procedure to assist you in achieving your ideal body image. Combined with changes to your eating habits and lifestyle, including making healthier food choices and exercising regularly, your Kybella results will be nothing short of amazing.

Possible Kybella Side Effects

It is possible to experience side effects after a Kybella treatment though they are generally not severe and only last a few days. Most of the patients report the injected area to swell, bruise, and feel uneven or even hard upon touch. (If you are using ibuprofen and acetaminophen, you may see post-treatment bruising). Others also report numbness and soreness in the injected area. These are the common side effects and are temporary in nature. You do not necessarily have to report them to your doctor as they disappear within a few days of the injection treatment. However, Kybella injections may cause nerve damage in the local area which can take several weeks to fully recover. If you feel weakness in the injected area or have doubts about its recovery, you must get in touch with your Kybella certified specialist. With any injection, be sure to keep the area clean prior and post treatment to prevent any bacterial infections. Some patients are not qualified for Kybella treatment. This includes patients with excessive skin laxity, which prevents their skin from tightening back after the support of fat deposits has been removed. Moreover, to prevent post-procedure complications or risks, you must tell your Kybella physician about any cosmetic treatments or medical conditions you have or had. There is also no certainty about the effects of Kybella on an unborn baby, therefore pregnant women should avoid the treatment. Similarly, mothers who are breastfeeding should also avoid this procedure as it is not known whether Kybella affects the properties of the milk or not.
