Can Perioral Mounds Be Effectively Reduced By Kybella Injections?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I believe I may have excess perioral fat, and I am writing to enquire exactly what these pockets of fat around the highlighted area is.

I am situated in London England therefore I am asking to get an opinion on what exactly the right procedure could be. I have already had complete buccal fat removal however this treated my middle cheek and not the perioral area.

Could these be treated with an injection such as Kybella or would micro lipo be a more appropriate approach?

A: Kybella never works for fat reduction in that area, it requires liposuction alone or combined with a buccinator myectomy. In thinner faces it is most likely going to require both to create your outlined effect.
