Even just a small amount of excess fat in the upper throat area can create the presence of a "double chin" that is unwanted for both women and men. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawline and chin and a less-defined profile. Beverly Hills, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz is pleased to provide a revolutionary method to eliminate neck fat. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella® is a new nonsurgical procedure for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella® is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it's injected below the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells do not re-form, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer neck and firm jawline for years to come.
The ideal candidates for Kybella treatments have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates unwanted fullness or a double chin. This injection addresses resistant sections of fat that can't be minimized with usual weight loss techniques because they are created by genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are at or near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not worked to remove the fat from your neck, Kybella may be the correct procedure for your needs. While Kybella may correct small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better treated with surgical neck liposuction by Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz.
"I went to visit Chelsea (Dr Schwartz's NP) for my first ever consultation to get some non-surgical procedures. I arrived nervous, not knowing what to expect, and I was taken aback at the amount of hospitality Chelsea and her team showed me right from the start. I cannot recommend her more! Each time I go back, the results are better than expected and I am so much more confident now. If you are in need of any type of medspa procedure, I cannot fault Chelsea and her team. They are caring, consistent and make you feel at home :)"- L.L. / Yelp / Nov 10, 2016

Kybella® is completed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Schwartz will often apply a numbing cream to the treated area, if preferred, once the skin is cleansed. The injection session lasts around 15 minutes, which comprises of multiple small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may need a single treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several injections spaced three weeks between each appointment at Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz.
What to Expect
Kybella® treatments do not need general anesthesia, so you can leave our office when you are ready to return to your usual routine. Your recovery shouldn't last more than 2 – 3 days. Contact Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz right away if you are feeling any unusual symptoms. While the fat cells eliminated by Kybella® do not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger, so you must keep a stable weight after your Kybella® treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and sleeker and your neckline better defined.
