 Kybella Pre Care 

  • To see maximum results of KYBELLA, it is essential that you do not gain weight during the entire course of your treatment series. You may be weighed at the beginning and end of your treatment series. Even weight gain of just a few pounds can negate your results.

  • To decrease the chance of bruising and bleeding at the injection site, avoid taking all optional blood thinning medications one week prior to treatment. These medications include Aspirin and NSAIDS. Please notify our office in advance if you are taking Coumadin, Plavix, or any other blood thinner.
