Kybella Los Angeles
Kybella, or deoxycholic acid, is a new treatment for patients with fullness under their chin (submental fullness). Kybella is FDA approved to treat fat deposits in this area. Kybella treatments are given through a series of microinjections to the underside of the chin. These are performed in office by Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Elliot Hirsch. The entire process typically takes less than 30 minutes, and the results are permanent with no surgery required!

Frequently asked questions about Kybella
How does Kybella work?Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. When Kybella is injected, it helps destroy fat cells. These cells are then naturally removed by your body. With this treatment, Dr. Hirsch is able to non-surgically contour the jawline for a younger appearance. The treatment results look natural because the process is similar to what happens with weight loss.
The treatment requires a series of small injections with a very thin needle to the treatment area. The procedure itself generally involves minimal discomfort.
The procedure is suitable for adult men and women ages 19 and up who have fullness in the submental area. If you are pregnant, nursing, or have an active infection in the area, you should not get Kybella.
