Renowned plastic surgeon Rami K. Batniji, M.D., F.A.C.S, is pleased to offer the newly FDA-approved Kybella® double chin injections to current and future patients. He is among a small number of highly trained plastic surgery professionals with extensive proficiency in the technique of Kybella® injections who instruct other physicians across southern California.

“We have been fortunate to be at the forefront of this procedure as one of the first of a handful of practices with initial access to this procedure,” says Dr. Batniji. “As well, we have been responsible for training over 70+ physicians throughout the country on this technique.”

Kybella® has become a revolutionary new procedure in the world of cosmetic advancements. It is the first and only approved injectable drug available that can dramatically improve and contour the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness commonly known as the "double chin."

One can be a super athlete in excellent physical shape and still be plagued by a double chin or sagging jawline. It's an area of the face that bothers many Americans because it can be impossible to eliminate submental fullness through careful diet and exercise. General aging and even genetics can be responsible for the dreaded double chin.

“In our facial plastic surgery practice, we now have many excellent options for neck rejuvenation, including neck liposuction and necklift surgery,” says Dr. Batniji. “Kybella® is the newest, non-surgical treatment for those patients with a double chin.”

According to Dr. Batniji, the beauty of Kybella® comes through a simple, safe and effective procedure that can be accomplished without surgery. The solution is injected like Botox in a non-invasive manner during a simple in-office treatment. A Kybella® session lasts about 15-20 minutes. As the solution is injected into subcutaneous fat, it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer accumulate or store fat.

For optimal improvement in the chin and jawline, up to six treatments may be needed. However, many patients see visible, impressive results after only two to four treatments spaced at monthly intervals.
Following a Kybella® procedure, patients can expect a few minor side effects including redness, swelling, numbness, bruising or a feeling of hardness in the treated areas. According to clinical trial results, these side effects decrease with subsequent Kybella® treatments. Ice and ibuprofen can be used in the meantime, and the patient can resume their normal routine immediately after a session.

Kybella® was developed by Allergen, the same pharmaceutical company that introduced the world to Botox, Juvederm, Latisse, and other popular aesthetic, injectable treatments. Kybella® underwent rigorous testing before receiving the green light from the FDA, namely through two clinical trials that enrolled a total of 1,022 adults with the appearance of moderate or severe amounts of fat located beneath the chin or lower jaw. The trials were conducted at 70 sites across the United States and Canada.

Kybella provides a wonderful, non-surgical alternative for patients interested in permanently removing neck fat. It's a safe, simple, in-office procedure with effective results as demonstrated by its FDA approval.
