Kybella in Los Angeles, CA
There’s a new FDA-approved injectable that makes it possible to reduce the appearance of a double chin without undergoing an invasive surgery and a long healing and recovery process. Double board-certified plastic surgeons, Kian Karimi, MD, FACS, and Chester Griffiths, MD, FACS, treat men and women in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Brentwood, CA, and the surrounding California communities, with Kybella,® to reduce excess fat accumulated under the chin and to reveal a slimmer, more contoured neckline.
What is Kybella®?
The dreaded double chin no longer must be dealt with surgically. Kybella® is a prescription injectable FDA approved to reduce the fat deposits under the chin. It corrects and eliminates excess fat deposits by dissolving fat cells in the area using deoxycholic acid, a natural acid found in the human body responsible for aiding in the digestion of fat found in foods eaten.
This brings new possibilities to people who are very self-conscious about the way their chins and necks make them look heavier than they are. With Kybella®, they can achieve and maintain a healthier, more sculpted appearance.
The Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® offers a solution to diminishing or eliminating excess fat without invasive neck lift surgeries, and the following benefits:
- Only FDA-approved treatment for fat reduction under the chin
- Fast results that improve over time
- Permanent results
- No downtime or recovery
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Kybella®?
The ideal candidate for Kybella® has excess fat under the chin that creates a “double chin” and gives the illusion of being overweight even if the person is fit and healthy. Kybella® is chosen as a course of treatment to avoid invasive surgeries that require a lengthy recovery.
What Do I Do to Prepare for My Kybella® Treatments?
We recommend you schedule a consultation to ensure Kybella® is the right option for you. Other than that, there is no preparation for Kybella® treatments.
What Happens During My Kybella® Treatment?
Kybella® is injected into the targeted area under the chin and jawline with an ultra-fine needle. Once injected, the solution dissolves the fat using deoxycholic acid, revealing a contoured, slim chin. The body uses deoxycholic acid to process and digest that fat we eat in food. While the treatments are painless, it is common to require several injections to achieve the desired look.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Kybella® Treatments?
It typically takes about an hour for the appointment with most people needing two to six treatments. Each one is spread out about four weeks apart.
What to Expect After Kybella® Treatments
There is no recovery with Kybella® treatments. Patients may return to their normal activities immediately following their appointments. On top of that, once the desired look has been achieved, they are permanent. It is necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet to ensure a sculpted look is maintained.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients typically see results after just one Kybella® treatment. The full results may take up to four treatments scheduled about one month apart to achieve the desired look. Since the results are permanent, once they are revealed, no more treatments are necessary.
How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Los Angeles?
The cost of Kybella® injections differs with each patient and is determined based on the extent of the targeted area, the number of treatments needed and whether other treatments are being performed at the same time. During your consultation, we review the cost as well as payment and financing options. We accept cash, check, and major credit cards as well as offer financing through CareCredit®.
