Finally! Double chin fat can now be safely removed without the need for liposuction or surgery. Kybella is a synthetic version of a natural acid that absorbs fat in the body . This remarkable product has recently been approved by the FDA to treat stubborn double chin fat and Dr. Kevin Sadati in Orange County is excited to be among the first to offer it to his Newport Beach patients. In just a few 30 minute treatments Kybella destroys targeted fat cells revealing a sculpted jawline and a slim youthful looking neck. If your profile is marred by a double chin, Kybella might be the perfect solution for you.
Kybella is the marketing name for deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in metabolism of fat in the body. The FDA approved Kybella, formerly known as ATX-101, for treatment of moderate to severe submental under the chin) fat. A trial was conducted at 70 different sites in the US and Canada involving over 1000 adults. The FDA approved Kybella following the successful conclusion of these trials, specifying it to be safe for under chin fat only.
Dr. Kevin Sadati cautions anyone considering Kybella treatment in Orange County to trust this procedure only to a trained professional. There are risks associated with injections into the facial area administered by undertrained people who have done a short course as opposed to a board certified facial plastic surgeon with years of training in facial structure.

Kybella treatment procedure
Kybella is administered through very fine gauge needles which are similar to acupuncture needles. Patients report feeling very little discomfort during treatment. Topical anesthetic can be administered if needed. After a thorough examination of the extent and location of the fatty deposits, the injections are done in a grid pattern to ensure even distribution of the product.
The total time for a procedure is about 30 minutes. Following the procedure there may be a little redness at the injection sites which can be minimized with makeup. In some patients there may be a little bruising and swelling which can be treated with cool packs as needed. Patients can return to their normal activities directly following treatment.
Candidates for Kybella treatment have stubborn fatty deposits under the chin not caused by other medical conditions. The FDA recommended Kybella not be used in the presence of infection in the treatment area.
Kybella is specifically intended to remove only under chin fat and is not intended as a weight loss solution nor is it approved to be used in other areas where fatty deposits are a problem.
While most people are good candidates for Kybella, patients who have considerable skin laxity under the chin and in the neck area may not get the aesthetic outcome they were hoping for with just this treatment. As a leading Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Sadati can assess the benefit of Kybella over other procedures for patients with these issues.
long lasting reduction of double chin fat
The benefit of Kybella for under chin fat is that the treatment is long lasting. As in liposuction, once the fat cells are eliminated, they are gone for good. Patients usually require 2 to 4 sessions of Kybella spaced at least a month apart but can have up to 6 sessions if needed to achieve the cosmetic goal.
Restoring balance to the face and neck
Finally there is a non invasive way to bring balance to an area that is notoriously resistant to diet and exercise. Many normal weight patients are plagued with a double chin which can make them appear overweight and older than they are. Formerly their only option was liposuction or surgery.
Kybella, skillfully administered by a trained professional will eliminate the fat that is ruining an otherwise youthful appearance. If you are considering this procedure, Dr. Sadati will be happy to help you decide if this treatment is right for you or not.
