Kybella® in Santa Barbara, CA

Excess fat can develop just under the chin making it difficult to wear certain styles of clothing. Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, offers Kybella® injections to people living in and around Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Ventura, CA, to permanently eliminate pockets of fat under the chin and create a more contoured neckline.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® is a prescription injectable FDA approved specifically to eliminate excess fatty deposits under the chin. This injectable treatment contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps break down dietary fat. When injected, fat cells are destroyed creating a more contoured silhouette.

Why Choose Kybella®?

Kybella® is an excellent alternative to having invasive plastic surgery or liposuction in the area to remove the fat. The results are long lasting.

Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella®?

Candidates for Kybella® have excessive pockets of fat that create a fuller looking neck or a double chin.

How is Kybella® Administered?

Kybella® treatments are performed in the office by injecting it into several spots under the chin. The number of injections depends on the amount of submental fat present and the desired look. Most treatment times are no more than 30 minutes with additional treatments a month later if necessary.

When Will I See the Results from Kybella®?

The results from Kybella® take a few weeks to fully reveal themselves. The goal is for the results to be subtle rather than dramatic. Once the fat is destroyed, the results are permanent.

How Much Does Kybella® Cost in Santa Barbara?

Kybella® treatments vary with cost based on the number of injections needed and whether repeat treatments are recommended. We go over the costs during the initial consultation along with payment and financing options through Alphaeon® and CareCredit®.
