Enhance Your Look with Double Chin Procedure
in Beverly Hills

Kybella is a non-surgical, non-invasive injection treatment that works to eliminate unwanted fat. Kybella permanently reduces submental fat under the chin and in body areas, such as the outer thighs, mons pubis, bra fat, or knees.

As you are undoubtedly informed, fat accumulates due to aging, weight gain, or genetics. Surgical treatments, such as facelifts, neck lifts, and liposuction, used to be the only solutions for removing fat beneath the chin and other body areas. Well, chin up because we now have Kybella™ — the revolutionary non-surgical treatment that permanently melts undesirable fat!

What is Kybella?

Kybella injection is the first and only FDA-approved non-invasive treatment for permanently eliminating the double chin —unwanted fat (submental fat) below the chin. Experienced practitioners often use Kybella off-label to reduce fat in other body areas.

At Nazarian Plastic Surgery, we utilize Kybella injections to reduce fat in areas such as

  • beneath the chin
  • outer thighs
  • mons pubis
  • bra fat
  • knees
  • lipomas

The active ingredient in Kybella™ is ATX 101, which is synthetically identical to deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected properly, Kybella™ dissolves and destroys fat cells, restoring and transforming structure and contours. Once eliminated, those cells can never again store or accumulate fat.

Kybella Benefits

Kybella treatment is highly effective and safe when done by certified plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Sheila Nazarian, a leading Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon. Kybella permanently dissolves excess fat to enhance your facial profile and body contours. It may also benefit those seeking a non-surgical solution to eliminate fatty lipomas.

What Results to Expect:

  • Quick Treatment: 20-25 minutes
  • Little to No Downtime: you can return to your regular activities as soon as you’re comfortable.
  • Effective Results: proven effective and allows patients to get rid of excess fat without surgery.
  • Permanent Results: Eliminated fat cells do not regenerate.
  • Non-Surgical Procedure: Kybella is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that does not require incisions.

How Long Will Results Last?

The results of the Kybella treatment are permanent. Once the injectable dissolves the designated fat cells, they will not regenerate. However, patients must maintain a healthy weight after the procedure. Results are noticeable within three to four days after treatment, with full results developing gradually over four to six months.

Kybella Cost & Pricing Structure

Kybella treatment costs depend on the number of treatments needed and the provider’s experience. Some patients may benefit from combining Kybella with other fat reduction modalities such as CoolSculpting, increasing overall costs.

  • US National Average: $1,200-$2,400
  • Our Price: Costs can vary depending on the provider. Please contact us for an estimate.
  • Additional Costs: There are no additional costs.
  • Insurance: Most insurance companies do not cover cosmetic procedures. We offer a variety of payment options for your convenience.

How the Procedure Works

At Nazarian Plastic Surgery, your Kybella specialist will customize your treatment based on the amount of fat and your desired facial profile or body contours. Your provider will proceed to schedule your treatment sessions and the series of injections.

Most of our patients have experienced visible contouring of their chin profile, bra line, or legs in just 2-4 treatment sessions scheduled about a month apart. For the best possible outcome, you may require six treatment sessions. After completing your treatment plan, no further treatments are necessary as the Kybella treatment provides permanent results.

Before & Preparation

  • Schedule your appointment at least two weeks before special occasions, events, or vacations.
  • Stop using aspirin, NSAIDs (Aleve, Motrin, etc.), fish/flax oil, or other blood thinning supplements one week before treatment.
  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, refined carbohydrates, high sodium, high sugar, and spicy foods for 24-48 hours before treatment to reduce the risk of swelling and irritation.
  • Please reschedule your appointment if you develop a cold, flu, infection, blemish, or rash on the treatment area.
  • Your provider will assist you in coordinating Kybella treatments with other cosmetic modalities if necessary.
  • If you are highly sensitive to pain or discomfort, you can purchase Zensa to pre-numb the treatment area. Apply thirty minutes before your treatment for the best effects.

During the Procedure

  • Your provider will administer multiple injections into the treatment area.
  • The number of injections will depend on the amount of fat in the treatment area and your desired profile.
  • The entire procedure typically takes 15-20 minutes but may take longer, depending on the size of the treatment area(s).
  • Anesthetics are not required, but your provider may apply a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort.

Aftercare & Recovery

  • Apply a cold compress to the treatment area in 20-minute intervals to reduce post-treatment irritation.
  • Use Arnica to reduce discomfort, swelling, and bruising.
  • Sleep on your back with the head elevated for 3-5 days after treatment.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise, direct sun exposure, and heat exposure for 3-5 days following treatment.
  • Drink plenty of fluids and remain hydrated after treatment.
  • Please inform your provider immediately if you experience rare adverse side effects, such as an asymmetric smile or facial muscle weakness, skin ulceration in the treatment area, or difficulty swallowing.

Kybella Reviews

“I'm going to jump on the "WE LOVE SHEILA" train. I went to Dr. Nazarian for Kybella treatments. Kybella is a non-surgical treatment used to get rid of annoying fat under the chin. #byebyegobbler

Dr. Nazarian and her team are beyond personable and most important to me, honest. She laid out all the possible options for my treatment and gave me her honest opinion about what was the best course for me. I was not pressured or lead to make an expensive decision.

Two of my friends go to her office for regular Botox treatments and another just had a minor surgery. We will continue to recommend Dr. Nazarian and her team!”

The results from a Kybella treatment are permanent. Once injected, the active ingredients work to eradicate unwanted fat cells. Fat cells gradually dissipate, with full results appearing within 4-6 months after treatment.

A typical Kybella treatment costs between $1,200 and $2,400. Treatment costs depend upon the chosen practitioner, the geographical location of the service, and the amount of excess fat to be removed.

Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid as the primary active ingredient. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that assists the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat within the body. Kybella has proven efficacy in reducing fat beneath the chin and off-label on other body areas.

Kybella permanently removes fat from the body. Once injected, Kybella’s active ingredient breaks down submental fat deposits that are then metabolized by the body. The eliminated fat cells do not regenerate. However, it is essential to maintain a healthy body weight to maintain optimal results.

Kybella is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment to remove unwanted fat cells from the body. However, adverse side effects may occur, including bruising or necrosis at the injection site, ulcers, hair loss, trouble swallowing, and temporary muscle weakness. It is essential to locate an experienced provider for Kybella treatments.

Patients may apply a cold compress to reduce discomfort after Kybella treatments. Your provider may recommend taking Arnica before and after treatment to reduce bruising and irritation. It is important to avoid strenuous exercise, direct sun, and heat exposure for 3-5 days after treatment. It is always beneficial to stay hydrated following any cosmetic procedure.
