KYBELLA®

Many people—male and female—can relate to feeling self-conscious about a double chin. Until recently, surgical liposuction was the only treatment option to minimize a double chin. KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment approved by the FDA to reduce fat below the chin. The injectable treatment creates a sleeker neckline and improves the definition of the chin and jaw. Patients from Glendale, Pasadena, and throughout the region get KYBELLA treatments at our Burbank, CA, practice.

Is KYBELLA Right for You?

Even though some people associate a double chin with being overweight, women and men who are fit and athletic can also have a double chin. Submental fat—fat under the chin—can accumulate with age and may also persist after weight loss. You can benefit from KYBELLA injections if you:

  • Have excess fat on your upper neck, contributing to the appearance of a double chin.
  • Have skin that retains most of its elasticity, so it will “shrink-to-fit” the neck’s new contours.
  • Are in good general health.
  • Aren’t interested in liposuction.

If you have loose neck skin, wrinkles, and jowls on the lower face, a facelift may be a better treatment option.

How Does KYBELLA Work?

KYBELLA dissolves treated fat cells with deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body that helps it break down and absorb dietary fat. Our registered nurses perform KYBELLA injections, carefully marking injection sites on the neck.

A patient can request a topical numbing ointment be applied to minimize any potential discomfort. Most patients report experiencing little to no pain at all.

How Many KYBELLA Treatments Will You Need?

The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your cosmetic goals and how you respond to the injections. Our injectors create a custom treatment plan after your consultation. Most patients get 2 to 4 treatments spaced about a month apart for optimal results, and sometimes up to 6 treatments. The number of injections also varies from patient to patient.

What Happens During Recovery After KYBELLA?

Swelling is a common side effect following KYBELLA injections. The swelling usually peaks at around 2 to 3 days and then gradually subsides within 7 to 14 days after the treatment. Patients with larger deposits of fatty tissue may see more swelling, which is also more pronounced after the initial treatment session.

You may also notice some bruising. Soreness is rare and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. KYBELLA patients often notice some slimming under the chin after 2 treatments.

If you’re concerned about the appearance of a double chin and don’t want to undergo liposuction, request a consultation using the online form to discuss KYBELLA with one of our medical professionals. You can also call us at (818) 500-0823 to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Vartany is just amazing! He has performed my breast lift and breast augmentation and I absolutely love it!! He is so kind, patient, and very detail orientated. He answered all my questions and was very realistic about what the outcome was going to be like. He doesn't sell you a story, he explains how each body type is different and even if you do the same surgery the results can be different from person to person. His entire staff is wonderful as well. Front desk was welcoming and friendly, and the surgery nurses very caring and thoughtful. Surgery went so smooth, it felt like I just went to sleep and woke up. No extra commotion. They called me the next day to see how I was doing and at my post-op everyone was just very attentive. Overall, it was a great experience!!! I recommend that Dr. Vartany to anyone who wants a beautiful natural look.

Get laser hair removal by time block instead of by area. Get more areas covered for your money. Laser facial is awesome, got rid of my preggo spots and dark freckles!

One of the best doctors around. I had three procedures on my nose and my eyes.For years I was skeptical to go under knife as I am a 56 years old male with some underling heart problems. The surgery was practically painless and to my wonder recovery was super fast. On cosmetic side, he did exactly what I asked for, no more, no less. The entire staff are super polite and professional.
