KYBELLA Double Chin Injections in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

Kybella is the first and only nonsurgical, FDA-approved injectable treatment to destroy submental fat cells and improve the appearance of the double chin and profile, and can significantly enhance the jawline contour as well. It works by dissolving fat cells beneath the skin using deoxycholic acid. It results in permanent reduction in the number of fat cells in the treated area.

When used to target subcutaneous fat around the chin and neck, Kybella reduces the appearance of a double chin, resulting in an elegantly contoured, slimmed-down appearance.


First, you will meet with Dr. Anita to share your concerns and discuss the results that you hope to achieve. This will be followed by a facial and submental analysis, treatment plan, and discussion of risks. Dr. Anita will go over the post-treatment care and activity restrictions, and give you time to ask questions.

You will then fill out consent forms and the area to be treated will be marked on the skin. The skin will be cleansed, cooled with gel ice packs, and prepped for injection. Laughing gas may also be offered.

Dr. Anita will then use carefully calibrated injections in precise locations in order to produce natural-looking results tailored to your individual needs. Pre- and post- photos (6 weeks after injection) will be taken to show you the side-by-side comparison and highlight changes.

Time in Office

45 minutes to 1 hour.



Icing is most effective. Topical numbing and laughing gas are also available.


Patients typically experience swelling that can last from a few days to one week.


Patients should avoid exercise for 48 hours and should not massage the treatment area.

Please Note: These are general estimates that may or may not apply to you individually.


Payments for nonsurgical treatments are made prior to or on the date of service, and payments for surgery are required to be paid in full 3 weeks prior to the surgical date.

We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, cash, and cashier checks. We also work with two third-party financing companies, Care Credit and Alphaeon Credit. You can find more information and apply for credit online using the links below.




During your consultation, Dr. Patel will take time to learn about your areas of concern and aesthetic goals, create a custom treatment plan, and discuss the treatment in detail. She will go through your medical history and make sure you are a good candidate for treatment.


After marking the skin, the treatment area is cleansed, iced, and prepped for injection. The injections then begin, and progress from area to area, until completed. If laughing gas is desired, this is taken just before injections begin, and as needed during treatment. Pre- and post- treatment photos are taken. Your comfort, safety, and results are our priority, so if at any time you would like to pause, please inform us.


Post-injection instructions and precautions are provided, and a 6-week follow-up visit is scheduled for overall assessment and further treatments if advised.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I have a double chin?

Submental fullness can be due to genetics, age, or weight gain.

Are double chins genetic?

Double chins, or submental fullness, can be genetic.

How do you get rid of chin fat?

Kybella works to diminish submental fat cells over the course of the 4-6 weeks following treatment. Other alternative treatments are liposuction or Coolsculpting ro reduce volume, and a neck lift, and/or platysmoplasty procedures for tightening.

How long does it take to get rid of a double chin?

How many treatments of Kybella are advised depends on the amount of submental fat that is present. Most patients require at least 2 treatments (and some up to 6 treatments), with a more visible reduction noted after the second treatment. If these were spaced 6 weeks apart, that result is seen 3 months after the first Kybella treatment. Depending on the distribution of submental fat and the patient’s personal goals, Dr. Anita will determine how many treatments are recommended. Patients should not receive more than six total treatments.

What is KYBELLA used for?

Kybella is used to improve the appearance of submental fullness in adults.

How does KYBELLA work?

Kybella works to destroy fat cells using synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.

Is KYBELLA permanent?

Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells, and once destroyed, those cells can no longer accumulate or store fat. Once your desired aesthetic is reached, further treatment is not expected.

Is KYBELLA worth it?

Kybella is a nonsurgical way to reduce double chins, or submental fullness, and is generally very satisfying when the recommended number of treatments are completed.

" I had my lap band surgery three years ago now I was ready for my tummy tuck. But from the horror stories I heard I kept putting it off. I went to see two other doctors and wasn't happy, until I met Dr. Patel and her amazing staff. The first day I met them I knew I wanted her to be the one to do my surgery for me. Everyone was fantastic from Dr. Patel's staff to the after care. "

" Dr. Patel is a great Doctor. From the very first phone call with Jenny, Dr. Patel's Coordinator, I felt very comfortable. When I went for the 1st appointment in Newport Beach, I was very impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Patel and Jenny. They took time discussing the procedures and options and put my mind at ease. I had a Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift with Implants. The surgery day went great and I am so happy with the results. I would recommend her to my family and friends and will use her for any future cosmetic surgeries I may have. Thank you Dr. Patel!! "

Dr. Patel cares about every person who takes the time to come to her clinic. Throughout my pre-op, surgery and post-op Dr. Patel's exceptional care was displayed without waiver.
