Even patients who are very fit or lean otherwise can suffer from stubborn fat below the chin, commonly called a “double chin.” This disrupts the appearance of a defined jawline and causes self-consciousness for many patients. Thankfully, our Kybella Los Angeles treatment is available as a simple nonsurgical solution. Dr. Ourian is proud to provide high-quality, safe, and effective Kybella procedures at Ourian Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.
Kybella is an injectable product designed to reduce submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Kybella can be used to sculpt the chin and jawline without any incisions or downtime.

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. This is naturally produced by the body to absorb fat. Kybella destroys fat cells below the chin, which are then metabolized and absorbed by the body over time. The result is a semi-permanent reduction of fat in the neck and chin area.
Patients who wish to reduce their double chin without surgery are typically good candidates for Kybella. Before choosing Kybella, patients should be generally healthy and at a stable weight. Patients must also have good skin quality and elasticity. Dr. Ourian will evaluate your health and the treatment area to determine whether Kybella is the best treatment option for you after a consultation.
Patients with more fat under their chin may be better suited to neck liposuction, with or without a skin tightening procedure such as J-Plasma or FaceTite. Those with sagging or loose skin may benefit most from a neck lift procedure.
After determining that our Los Angeles Kybella treatment is the right treatment option for you, Dr. Ourian will thoroughly sterilize the treatment area and will apply a topical numbing agent to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Injections are then made, with most patients requiring between 20-50 injections to achieve ideal results.
Once Kybella has been injected, the body will gradually metabolize and remove the damaged fat cells over the following weeks. Many patients require multiple sessions of Kybella injections to achieve the best results. Dr. Ourian may recommend up to six sessions of Kybella injections, with at least a month between each session, to fully reduce the appearance of a double chin.
The final cost of your Kybella injections in Beverly Hills treatment depends on the amount of product used, the number of sessions necessary, and other factors. Dr. Ourian’s team will give you a more specific cost estimate for your treatment after a complimentary consultation at Ourian Plastic Surgery.
