Kybella™ in New York
Melt away your double chin with no down time
Kybella™ is a new injectable treatment for the submental or double chin area that dissolves fat with deoxycholic acid, the naturally occurring acid that is produced in the body to absorb fats.
You can now melt away your double chin without liposuction or surgical procedures – with a series of injections!
Kybella™ was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in April 2015 as ‘ a treatment for adults with moderate-to-severe fat below the chin, known as submental fat.’ For our New York Kybella™ patients, a series of simple lunchtime appointments in Manhattan (Upper East Side and Chelsea Market), Tarrytown or Goshen can soon produce a more youthful profile.
For many years, patients who wanted to rejuvenate their jaw line chose between an array of liposuction techniques for an athletic profile. These invasive techniques require local sedation and involve some discomfort during the healing process.
Kybella™ is a non-invasive way to remove your double chin without surgery
Unlike other injectable treatments, such as dermal fillers or Botox, the results from Kybella™ are permanent. Deoxycholic acid has a fat cell destroying cytolytic effect that, when properly injected into submental fat, will permanently dissolve your double chin, with no need for any anesthesia.
Kybella™ is composed of a synthetically produced deoxycholic acid, a compound naturally produced by the liver to break down fat. When administered in a series of treatments, with each session up to 50 injections, Kybella™ has a demonstrated efficacy in over 20 clinical studies and thousands of patients.
For patients in these clinical studies who underwent weight gain after their treatments, there was no recurrence of substantial submental fat deposits.
Depending on your physiology, the number of Kybella™ injectable treatments will vary between 2 to 5, with each session spaced one to two months apart. Most New York Kybella™ patients will typically require 2 to 3 treatments, with 15 to 20 injections, according to the custom plan developed for you by your Plastic Surgeon.
