What Should I Expect From Kybella Injections?

In La Jolla

By Nasrin Mani, M.D.

Kybella® is an innovative way to melt the fat causing a double chin. You may be interested but also quite curious about the injectable. The best way to learn all about it is to visit Dr. Nasrin Mani for an in-person, complimentary consultation. In the meantime, here are some things to expect:


You can expect to first have a consultation to determine your candidacy. During your consultation, we will assess the condition of the fat and skin beneath your chin, to determine if it is treatable with Kybella®. During this same appointment, we will develop your treatment plan and help you decide if you want to move forward with treatment.


The cost of Kybella® varies across the country. Right now, it is in high demand and there isn’t a similar product against which Kybella® would be competing. The cost will most likely fall in the decades ahead, although there’s no way to know for sure. At your consultation, we will provide you with a cost estimate for your specific treatment plan. We will also describe your options for financing and payment.

The injection appointment.

To achieve optimal results, Kybella® is administered over the course of 4-6 treatment sessions, with most people benefiting from the full 6. These appointments are spaced a month apart.

During the appointment, the under-chin area will be numbed with lidocaine. You may feel a slight pinch or sting when the fine needle is inserted, but most people are surprised by the painlessness of the injections. The appointment will be completed quickly and efficiently, and you will be able to get back to your day immediately.

Results and longevity of results.

You should begin noticing results quickly. The results continue to improve until your treatment is complete. The results take time to form because your body is processing away the destroyed fat cells. These cells are destroyed permanently.
