Kybella San Diego

Lose the Chin Fat

Now that the FDA has approved Kybella injections, San Diego and La Jolla residents who are unhappy with stubborn chin fat or neck fat can remove double chin and jowl fat without enduring painful surgical techniques that require long recovery times.

What causes "Turkey Neck or Double Chin?"

After age 35, your skin starts producing much less collagen and elastin, two chemicals necessary for providing support and firmness to skin. Other factors encourage development of unattractive double chins as well, such as weight fluctuations, genetics and excessive exposure to sunlight. Although you might be able to delay the appearance of a turkey neck by making lifestyle changes, it will not help much if your closest relatives have double chins. Unfortunately, no exercises or diets exist that can eliminate neck and chin fat if you inherited this trait. However, now that we offer injectable Kybella San Diego residents now have a treatment to help treat neck fat!

How does Kybella work?

Kybella injections essentially give you a sleek, attractive neck lipo appearance without any surgery involved. According to P. Alexander Ataii, M.D. “Kybella safely disrupts submental fat cells and dissolves them permanently by destroying the membrane of a fat cell. Any remaining pieces of disrupted fat cells are naturally absorbed by the body using normal metabolic pathways”.

Kybella FAQ's

How many injections are needed?

It can vary between 10 to 30 injections per session, depending on the severity of a double chin. You may need to visit our clinic two or four times, with visits spaced around one month apart. Each session should take less than 15 to 20 minutes.

Are there any side effects?

As with any cosmetic injectable, common side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, pain and numbness are to be expected. The possibility of extremely rare side effects does exist, which your doctor will discuss with your prior to your treatment.

How long does it take to recover from Kybella injections?

Recovery time is typically limited to a few days. No bandages are needed but are offered and any pain or swelling can be treated with a cold compress.

Can I have Kybella injected into areas other than my chin?

Kybella is exclusively made to remove double chin fat only. You would need much more product to dissolve fat in the thighs, abdomen and hips. Consequently, P. Alexander Ataii. M.D. offers other procedures such as Coolsculpting for other body areas.

Although the FDA hasn’t approved it for saggy skin, will Kybella help tighten loose skin?

Although it is meant to dissolve fat and not tighten skin, some people receiving Kybella in San Diego have reported a noticeable tightening of loose skin. However, this unintended effect will not be experienced by everyone receiving injections.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated May 20th, 2020

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • 1. We have received clearance from San Diego county and are now open and seeing patients
  • 2. We require any person entering our office to wear a mask or face covering
  • 3. Under federal anti-discrimination laws, we have the right to refuse service to any person for any reason except for race or color

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We have added a new filtration system with bipolar ionization attached to multiple HVAC systems throughout our office and had HEPA filters installed. This filtration system is similar to ones that are in hospital operating rooms. It will create reduced virus zones. We also spray the entire office at night with Electrostatic which generates charged droplets that repel one another and actively seek out environmental surfaces, which they stick to and even wrap around to coat all sides and disinfects bacteria and viruses off any surface within 2 minutes.

If you are sick or mildly sick, please stay home. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms such as fever, cough, fatigue, no appetite, shortness of breath, sputum production, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea or body ache please reschedule your appointment. We will reschedule your appointment without penalty or fees after 14 days.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
