Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, both male and female patients experience unwanted fullness beneath the chin. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys the fat cells and once destroyed, the submental fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Kybella uses a deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

Dependent upon the amount and distribution of the submental fat, Dr. Zoumalan will determine how many treatments are necessary. Patients may receive up to 6 treatments spaced between one month increments. Treatments typically take between 15 to 20 minutes and patients typically return to their normal daily activities post injection.

How do I know if I am a Kybella candidate?

Patients who do not want surgery and have concerns with the fat under the chin or suffer from stubborn submental fat regardless of weight loss may be great candidates for Kybella.

Testimonials

  • I was injured on January 7, 2012 in a mo-ped/scooter accident in Cozumel, Mexico. My entire body head to toe (literally) endured horrendous road rash, my nose broke & plenty more. The level of care I received from dr Zoumalan & his entire office was/is truly indescribable but I shall try!

  • It’s been a year since my septoplasty and rhinoplasty and I am extremely happy with my results.Not only has my breathing dramatically improved, I am sleeping better than ever. I feel healthier and it has significantly changed my exercise routine. I can definitely push myself harder and my work outs are longer and more efficient. Best part is I don’t get that winded feeling or stuffy or runny nose while running. I didn’t realize how many aspects of my life would change after the surgery.

  • I had a Face and Neck Lift on December 3rd, 2014. Dr. Zoumalan does excellent work! He is very thorough in explaining the procedure, and has an excellent bedside manner. I am so happy with my result. I would highly recommend Dr. Zoumalan.

  • So when I met with Richard Zoumalan, I gave him a picture of me when I was 42, and I said, “That’s what I want. Is that possible?” And he said, “Yes!” He explained what he’d do, and how he would do it. I had surgery less than a month ago, and amazingly, I look almost exactly like me, only about 25 years younger.

  • Dr. Richard Zoumalan performed an exceptional revisional rhinoplasty of my nose. I have a history of chronic sinusitis and have had several sinus surgeries and 2 rhinoplasties in hopes to correct my problem. My original rhinoplasy was done to correct a severely deviated septum.
