San Francisco Kybella

The double chin…it is one of the biggest problem areas for so many patients. In the past, anyone who wanted to get rid of the excess fat in their chin and add more definition to their neck had to have some sort of surgical procedure, either liposuction or a neck lift. Now, however, there is a truly effective non-surgical treatment that removes that stubborn pocket of fat under the chin — Kybella.*

Kybella is the first FDA approved injectable specifically designed to eliminate submental fat under the chin.* It’s fast and relatively painless. If you have fat which you can pinch and pull under your chin, then you might be a great candidate for Kybella. Dr. David Sieber has advanced training in injectables, and even trains other surgeons. He brings this expertise to every patient that he sees. Kybella can be performed alone or in conjunction with other non-surgical treatments such as fillers, neurotoxins, and laser skin resurfacing.

Improvements with Kybella:*

  • Reduction of fatty deposits in neck
  • Improved contour of jawline

Quick Facts

Kybella Technique

Dr. Sieber will first place a grid pattern onto your treatment area to act as a guide for your Kybella injections. He will then apply ice, and depending on your pain tolerance, you may be given some ibuprofen prior to the treatment. The Kybella will then be strategically injected with a needle in order to deliver the contour that you desire. Most patients will require anywhere from 2-4 treatments, spaced 30 days apart, in order to achieve their final results.*

Preparing for Kybella

As with any procedure, all medications and supplements which cause an increased risk of bleeding should be stopped 2 weeks prior. Please see our list of medications and supplements to avoid. As always, make sure to check with your doctor before stopping any medications.

Recovery from Kybella

Immediately after your Kybella procedure, you may experience some numbness, burning, redness, and swelling. Your swelling will get worse during the first 24 hours after treatment, and you can expect to remain swollen for at least 48-72 hours. Some patients, especially during their first treatment, may experience severe swelling. With each additional treatment, however, your swelling should diminish. You can return to your regular activities immediately after your Kybella procedure although it may take from 4-8 weeks for all swelling to subside and for you to see you final results.*


Q: How does Kybella work?

A: Kybella is composed of a substance called deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. When injected around fat cells, Kybella disrupts the cellular membrane, destroying these cells and preventing them from storing or accumulating fat.

Q: How long will my result last?

A: Because Kybella destroys unwanted fat cells, you should not require any additional treatments once your ideal neckline has been achieved.*

Q: How will I know how many treatments I will require?

A: All patients react differently to Kybella so it’s difficult to say exactly how many treatments it will take. In the Kybella studies performed, most patients required 2-4 treatments.* During your consultation, Dr. Sieber will be able to give you a more accurate estimate once he’s examined you in person and assessed the amount of fat that needs to be removed in order to achieve your goals.

I couldn’t be more pleased and excited about the refresh Dr. Sieber did on my face using a combination of botox and fillers. I had a baby a year ago and my face looked completely deflated. It felt to me that I looked like I had aged 5 years instantly by having a baby over 40. Dr. Sieber looked closely at my face and listened to my desires and fears in terms of the results I was seeking. I really liked that he took a conservative approach and followed up to check in and tweak things once the fillers and I had time to settle in.*

Dr. Sieber is a caring, friendly and talented doctor. I had two long consultations (free of charge) before scheduling my BBL (Brazilian butt lift). The staff and Dr. Sieber made me feel calm and relaxed the day of surgery. The results are amazing. Dr. Sieber understands a woman’s body and totally changed the shape of mine. I could not recommend him highly enough. I now go to him for my Botox and Juvederm.*

Dr. Sieber was fantastic throughout the entire process. From the beginning, he was patient with my questions and never made me feel pressured about making a decision. Once deciding that I was going to move forward with a breast augmentation, he made sure that I understood the process of the procedure and what I could expect post-surgery. I could not be happier with the results!*

Dr. Sieber is the best. I interviewed with numerous doctors. He pays close attention to detail. He called and checked on me and my results on a regular basis. My tummy procedure exceeded my expectation.*

Dr Sieber was very kind, knowledgeable and patient. He was able to answer all of my questions and put me completely at ease during the consultation as well as during the actual procedure. He made sure that I understood each part of the process which went a long way in alleviating my fears…after all, this is my face!*

He’s like my hair dresser, a magician, you just want to do a happy dance with the results, only these results are lasting. Ok, but seriously, the procedure was very smooth, the staff and the doctors (Dr Sieber and the anesthesiologist) had great communication and made sure I was comfortable with very clear and concise pre op and post op directions. The healing process was very easy and the results are FABULOUS. Side note, Dr. Sieber has really awesome skin, I feel like this is impressive and important because really, would you trust a dentist with bad teeth? I am so elated and satisfied with the results, the size is perfect and they look and feel very natural. They are exactly what I wanted.*

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
