Double chin fat isn’t always caused by being overweight. Often this is an inherited trait that does not respond to diet or exercise and adds years to one’s appearance.
Kybella® now available in Los Angeles
Until recently, the only permanent solution was liposuction surgery which our office pairs with tightening of the skin to achieve maximal results, sometimes paired with a neck lift. Now there is a remarkable new injectable called Kybella which permanently destroys fat cells in just a few treatment sessions, restoring a more youthful, firm profile.
Kybella injections are now FDA approved and proudly offered at Dr. Lee’s clinic for all of her patients. Finally there is a simple, effective way to erase a feature that is been troubling to millions of men and women, some for their entire adult life. Come experience some of the best Kybella injections Los Angeles & Beverly Hills have to offer.
Lunch time treatment for submental (under chin) fat
Depending on the amount of fat to be treated, two to six sessions will be scheduled approximately six weeks apart. Each session takes fifteen to twenty minutes making this an ideal lunch time treatment.
Following treatment, patients may have some swelling and bruising which will resolve in two to seven days. For this reason, it is best to schedule treatment at least two weeks before an important event. Using an ice pack on the treated area a few times a day and taking non prescription pain relief will handle any discomfort. If bruising is a concern, our office offers lymphatic drainage treatments and surgical strength Arnica and Bromelain to help your body resolve bruising and swelling faster.
Having been through the Dr. Kimberly experience, these patients can help you understand the smoothness of the journey.
Does Kybella work for everyone?
Candidates for Kybella injections are those who have moderate to severe fatty deposits under the chin and are unhappy with their appearance. Most people are good candidates for this procedure since the product is a replica of a naturally occurring acid in the body used to dissolve fat. . Candidates should not have an infection at the treatment site and should be in good health generally. Before Dr. Lee administers Kybella to her Beverly Hills patients, she ensures they have no underlying conditions that would make treatment unsafe.
The elasticity of the patient’s skin should be sufficient to ensure the removal of the fat does not create a cosmetic outcome that is just as unpleasant as the double chin. Patients with poor elasticity or who have a considerable volume of submental fat may be left with hanging skin that will require a neck lift or minimally invasive procedure to tighten the skin to fully rejuvenate the area. This would be the same outcome after liposuction surgery or Kybella injections in these patients.

Is Kybella safe?
Kybella is a synthetic form of an acid naturally occurring in the gut to digest fat. The synthesized material, called keoxycholic acid, works by destroying the membrane surrounding the fat cell which allows the fat and other material to be naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. Once the fat has been targeted by Kybella, it is permanently gone.
When delivered by a trained professional Kybella is a safe and highly effective procedure. Injectables can cause temporary facial paralysis if injected into a nerve branch or anywhere other than the target area. In addition, if Kybella is mistakenly injected into skin cells, it can cause tissue damage.
Los Angeles residents are fortunate to have many choices for cosmetic procedures such as this, but Dr. Lee cautions anyone considering having Kybella, Botox® or any other procedure to ensure they have entrusted their care only to a board certified specialist, such as a facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
These professionals have many years of training on the anatomic structures of the face, including nerves. While the procedure appears deceptively simple, proper placement of each injection is vital to a successful outcome.
