Kybella Injections Beverly Hills

Kybella® is an FDA approved breakthrough in the treatment of submental fullness, also known as a “double chin.” It is the very first injectable on the market designed exclusively to destroy fat under the chin. Once shed by the body, the damaged fat cells never return.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is composed of deoxycholic acid. This acid is naturally found in the human body and helps to break down dietary fat. When injected into the fat below the chin, it can decrease the quantity of fat. It is an excellent alternative for those who do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure or for those that want to postpone surgery. Many have dubbed Kybella® the “lunchtime” treatment for a fatty chin zone. Nearly 80 percent of patients treated with Kybella® reported increased self -confidence after the procedure and felt they appeared as if they had lost weight.

Why Choose Dr. Ardesh?

  • Dr. Ardesh is double board-certified in plastic surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
  • He will apply his expert knowledge of facial anatomy to your Kybella® injections, providing you with safe and precise results.

Recovering from Kybella® Injections

After your Kybella® injections, you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately. Even though the recovery with Kybella® is minimal, there may be minor swelling and bruising for the first week. Any bruising can be hidden with makeup, but we generally advise you do not schedule a Kybella® treatment directly before a major event such as a wedding.

What happens during my Kybella® Procedure?

You will receive multiple small injections under the chin during your treatment. The total number of injections you receive will depend on the amount of fat under your chin, and the desired profile you want. The entire process will only take 15 to 20 minutes.

How many treatments of Kybella® will I require?

Most patients receiving Kybella® experienced visible results to the contour of their chin profile with 2 to 4 treatments. Patients with significant fullness may require up to 6 treatments.

If you feel that submental fullness is taking away from your appearance, Kybella® treatment may be right for you. Speak with our double-board certified plastic surgeon today.
