Non-surgical Double Chin Removal

Are you sick and tired of looking in the mirror and noticing an unwanted double chin? The presence of excess submental fat creates an out-of-shape appearance, even in those who are generally in good physical condition. It can also make a person look lethargic. This creates body issues and problems with self-confidence. To recontour the submental area, many people are trying out the state-of-the-art fat-reduction solution known as Kybella. A double chin usually comes about due to several factors, such as genetics, weight gain, and the aging process. A strict exercise regimen and a proper diet can’t always change the appearance of excess fatty tissue in this area. Los Angeles Kybella injections at Marina Plastic Surgery & Med Spa are able to dissolve away that stubborn fat, recontouring the area to balance it with the rest of the facial features.

What is Kybella?

Millions of men and women suffer from a double chin their whole lives, but now there is an FDA-approved solution: Kybella injections offered at Marina Plastic Surgery & Med Spa. This simple treatment can help you get rid of that pesky extra chin for good! Schedule your Los Angeles consultation today.

What Does Kybella do?

Kybella is the only approved completely non-surgical injectable fat-reduction treatment.

This means that there are no scalpels or incisions involved. You won’t have to deal with any frustrating and uncomfortable downtime, and you’ll be able to get right back to your daily schedule. What exactly is Kybella? Also known as ATX-101, Kybella was created using a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid.

This substance is normally found in the human body, where it emulsifies dietary fat. The Kybella formulation disables the cell membrane – the walls of the cell – and thus its general cohesion of it. Once the fat cell has been disabled, it is safely flushed out of the system over time. Removing a large number of fat cells reduces an area in volume.

What are the benefits of Kybella?

Patients respond well and are typically very satisfied with this cutting-edge new double chin removal treatment. Kybella can help people who want to get rid of their double chin in many ways, including:

  • Giving you a jawline that is smoother, more sculpted, and younger looking.
  • An alternative to liposuction that is safer and less painful.
  • No downtime
  • Minimally invasive and offers a faster recovery time than liposuction
  • Achieve results that last

Along with experiencing a reduction in submental fat, patients feel better about their appearance and less self-conscious in regard to weight and the aging process.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

Women who are pregnant or nursing should postpone using Kybella. Additionally, you might not be a good candidate for submental fat reduction if you have an active skin infection, blood disorders, specific illnesses, or known sensitivities to the chemicals in Kybella. To find out if you are a good candidate for Kybella Los Angeles med spa fat reduction specialist at Marina Plastic Surgery can let you know during your consultation.

Your Kybella Procedure

Patients should clean their faces and necks well before coming to their sessions to avoid the risk of infection.

They also shouldn't take any ibuprofen or acetaminophen before their treatment. A topical anesthetic will be applied to your lower face and neck to numb it. This will make sure that you are completely comfortable and at ease. The areas where your injections will be given are marked with a surgical pen for the most accuracy.

Kybella is injected with ultra-fine needles into areas of your chin that contain the most submental. Most patients receive two to four injections per session with very little discomfort. In total, an in-office Kybella treatment usually only requires 15 to 20 minutes to perform. During treatments, the patient’s submental fat cells are targeted using precise injections. The number of injections required varies.


Individual results may vary.

Kybella Recovery & Results

Typically, results can be seen after an average of two to four Kybella treatment sessions. Sometimes up to six are required to reach full results. Patients will wait one month between each session. Usually, after the patient’s desired degree of change has been reached, no more treatments will be necessary.

Kybella Frequently Asked Questions

After treatment, some patients have experienced a degree of bruising, swelling, or numbness. This is temporary and will fade soon after treatment.

Kybella is a synthetic fat-digesting acid. Deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cell membrane, allowing fat and other substances to be absorbed and removed by the body. Kybella permanently removes fat. Kybella is safe and effective when administered by a specialist. When injected into a nerve branch or elsewhere, injectables can cause transient facial paralysis. Kybella can harm skin cells if injected incorrectly. Proper injection placement is key for successful results.

This fat-reduction injection is the first of its kind to gain FDA approval to correct excess submental fat in adults. It’s a rigorously clinically tested and proven option that can be specially designed for the patient’s beauty goals. While liposuction is an effective surgical treatment for submental fat, many patients are not interested in undergoing any sort of surgical treatments. The idea of an operation can be intimidating, and the discomfort and recovery time that comes with it is not an appealing prospect.
