Kybella Neck | La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic In San Diego



A double or triple chin is a complex issue that is not necessarily tied to your weight; therefore, diet and exercise may do little to reshape your upper neck area. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we recommend Kybella® injections for men and women in San Diego, Encinitas, La Mesa, El Cajon, and surrounding areas of California, who want to reduce excess fat along the jawline line and upper neck region.


What is Kybella?

Fat under the chin, known medically as submental fullness, has traditionally only been treatable with liposuction. The FDA’s approval of the injectable Kybella offers a simple, non-surgical in-office treatment to literally melt fat under the chin.

The Kybella injection contains a molecule that destroys the fat cell membrane. Once the membrane is “popped”, the fat within the cells is naturally removed by the body. You will have a series of treatments, all fast and easy, monthly. Average number of cycles varies per patient, but expect 4 to 6, each one month apart. You will begin noticing changes very quickly and each session will remove more fat cells.

What are the benefits of Kybella?

Kybella is offered in our clinic by Dr. Nasrin Mani. Dr Mani has special injection skills as a training physician for many fillers, so you know you will have the most expert treatment. Some of the benefits from Kybella in La Jolla and the San Diego area include:

  • Removes fat under the chin permanently
  • Requires only simple injections of the same molecule our bodies use to remove fat naturally
  • Involves no downtime
  • Leaves you looking thinner and more youthful

Who are the best candidates for a Kybella?

The best candidates for a San Diego or La Jolla Kybella treatment are patients over the age of  21. There is no upper age limit and clinical trial patients as old as 65 have been successfully treated. There are a few medical conditions that would prevent your treatment. These can be discussed during your consultation. Patients with pronounced skin laxity due to age or premature loss of skin elasticity may require a tightening procedure after the procedures are complete.

Before undergoing this procedure, be sure to make your provider aware if any of these issues relate to you:

  • Are pregnant or planning a pregnancy
  • Are currently breastfeeding
  • Have difficulty swallowing
  • Have had previous procedures or cosmetic treatments on or near your neck, face, or chin
  • Have a bleeding or blood clotting condition
  • Have a thyroid disorder

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting the Kybella treatment in La Jolla and the San Diego area is to contact La Jolla Laser Cosmetic Center for a consultation. During this appointment, you will meet with your provider, who will answer all of your inquiries regarding the Kybella. They will ask you questions about your medical history and lifestyle, as well as evaluate your face, chin, and neck. It is very important to be as open and honest as possible when having your consultation. Your clarity will help prevent any unnecessary negative reactions and provide the best possible results.

Once you agree with the direction of your consultation, your provider will create a treatment plan customized to meet your needs. Our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your procedure date and provide you with any necessary directions to follow before coming in.


What to expect on the day of a Kybella treatment

On the day of your Kybella treatment, we aim to have you feeling confident and calm. Since this is a non-invasive procedure, it allows your provider to focus on achieving optimal results. When we begin the treatment, the targeted area will be cleansed and marked where the injection will be placed. In some cases, you may receive a local anesthetic; this could be injected or used as a cream. The injection amounts and locations will be based on your personal aesthetic goals and the current amount of fat in the area. 

Each session takes about 15-20 minutes. An ice pack may be used to relieve swelling. Once the procedure is concluded, you may experience minor side effects like swelling, numbness, and bruising around the injection sites; this is normal and will subside in 24 to 48 hours.

Kybella recovery

Unlike invasive surgeries like liposuction, KYBELLA doesn’t require a complicated recovery period. Most of our patients return to work or normal routines right away. Swelling, the most common effect after KYBELLA treatment, will last mostly during the first few days. Minor swelling can last two to three weeks. Should you notice a crooked smile, weak facial muscles, or have difficulty swallowing, please contact our office immediately. 

If you wish to enhance, or at least maintain your results, we encourage a healthy lifestyle, diet, and exercise after your recovery period to avoid the future development of unwanted fat.

How much does Kybella cost in La Jolla & San Diego, CA?
