Kybella is a revolutionary way to decrease moderate to severe amounts of fat under the chin without surgery. Commonly known as a “double chin”, excess submental fat can be reduced with Kybella injections by a plastic surgeon without the time, expense, and pain of neck liposuction. Like the rest of the body, the chin can accumulate pockets of stubborn fat that cannot be reduced by a healthy diet and exercise. The active ingredient in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, permanently destroys dietary fat beneath the chin. Patients will need multiple Kybella treatment sessions to achieve their desired results, but the change is permanent.
"I will be seeing Dr D in October. He will be fixing years of BOTCHED work. His staff are pleasant, insightful and all around awesome. Its a big deal to take my case on and I'm proud to say even before the work is done, I have FINALLY made the right choice. AND I'm coming all the way from Canada! Im soooo freaking excited!So I had my surgery in early October. It was quite the case although Dr D has such great energy all the fear I had was alleviated. I had a few issues after the fact that caused me to return to him and Orange County (basically the poor skin quality from all the previous surgeons BOTCHED work). Again he was unphased. He's a genius, talked me through all steps, what we should do and my aftercare. Rachelle and himself took great care of me. Also nurse Julie I'd highly recommend if travelling alone which I was this time. He makes himself available to you 24/7 which you pretty much never see. HIs work is amazing, hes pleasant, kind and compassionate as is Rachelle. I wish I had gone to him in 2012 like I had initially planned. If I could rate him 100 out of 10 I would.Love his and his teamSE"- S.E. / Google / Nov 28, 2019

"Dr. Domanskis has performed surgical procedures on both, wife and I and he is by far the best. His knowledge and patient centric approach making you comfortable by informing you on every step of the way was more than we hopped for. What an outstanding doctor !! Well done Dr. Domanskis."- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 21, 2019
"Dr. Domanskis is the best Plastic Surgeon! I would give him 20 stars if I could. He just performed an En Bloc Capsulectomy on me 3-weeks ago, tomorrow. I am pleased with the results, I feel great and am so happy that I had this done. I feel great after just 3-weeks post-surgery, it's unbelievable.When I initially called his office to schedule my Consultation with Dr. D, Rachelle took my call and was so incredibly helpful in answering all of my questions and has always been so kind and understanding. At my appointment with Dr. D, he was so thorough and informative. He answered all of my questions big and small and got me to a point prior to surgery that I knew exactly what to expect afterwards. He fully explained the process of the surgery, so I understood exactly what he would be doing to remove the capsule and implants. After surgery he made sure to follow-up with me to make sure I was doing okay and to make sure I didn’t have any issues/ concerns. He is empathetic and has the best bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone that is looking to have surgery – big or small."- S.D. / Google / Oct 09, 2019

Surgical Neck Liposuction
Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.
In clinical trials, 79% of patients were satisfied with the results of their Kybella treatment in improving the appearance of their face and chin. Additionally, patients in the trial reported that they felt younger, happier, and more confident after their Kybella treatment session.
Before/After The Procedure
After cleaning the area, the doctor will inject Kybella into multiple sites under the patient’s chin. Most patients will begin to see visible results in 2 – 4 treatment sessions. Patients can have up to 6 treatment sessions with less than a month in between each session. After the treatment, patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness.
Depending on the amount of treatment sessions needed, patient should expect to pay between $1,000 and $2,000 for Kybella injections. Kybella is a new and therefore, more expensive procedure, however Kybella is less expensive (in time and money) than neck liposuction with a respected plastic surgeon.

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and a plastic surgeon will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.
Before receiving Kybella injections, the doctor will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.
How It Works?
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot return.
