KYBELLA is an advanced new treatment designed to reduce the appearance of a “double chin.” Traditionally, a surgical technique such as liposuction was necessary to address this common cosmetic concern. Since KYBELLA is a non-surgical method of improving the contours of the chin, this innovative procedure is quickly gaining popularity among our patients at New York Plastic Surgical Group.

Rather than using an invasive surgical approach, KYBELLA is an injectable treatment that can reduce excess fat under the chin (also known as submental fullness) with potentially permanent results. KYBELLA is the first FDA-approved procedure of its kind, and uses the power of deoxycholic acid—a naturally-occurring substance our bodies—to target and break down excess fat cells.

To learn how you can obtain a more defined and contoured profile with KYBELLA, please contact our office today.

KYBELLA Procedure

KYBELLA injections utilize a very fine needle, and a topical numbing agent can be applied to increase your comfort during the procedure. KYBELLA treatments are performed in-office and each treatment session takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. Our plastic surgeons typically recommend a series of two to four sessions to optimize your results, depending upon your unique needs and expectations.

KYBELLA Recovery

KYBELLA treatments typically involve very minimal downtime. You may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or temporary numbness in the treatment areas following your injection; however, these side effects usually last only a few days. As the KYBELLA solution begins to take effect, you should begin noticing a reduction in excess fat under the chin. The results of KYBELLA should gradually become more apparent as the depleted cells exit the body through the natural metabolic process.
