Introduction to KYBELLA

While certain areas of your body can be slimmed down and toned with basic exercise and a good diet, other spots are practically impossible to improve – like the area under your chin and jawline. Having a body contour that you can’t change can cause a mix of emotions, causing many to feel embarrassed or self-conscious. At KH Plastic Surgery in New York City, we offer KYBELLA as an incredibly helpful and simple way to improve your facial profile and reduce the appearance of a double chin!

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA works by destroying fat within the treatment area. Made of a synthetic Deoxycholic Acid (DA), KYBELLA is administered into the upper neck area and acts like the natural DA found in your body to dissolve fat, reducing the appearance of a double chin and bringing greater definition to the jawline. While targeted fat cells will not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger, making it important to maintain a healthy weight after KYBELLA injections to keep new pockets of fat from forming.

The procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete and is comprised of a few tiny injections administered into the upper neck area. Most patients receive between 2 – 4 treatments to achieve their goals with appointments scheduled about one month apart. Optimal KYBELLA results can leave your neck looking tighter and slimmer and your profile more defined.

What are the Benefits of KYBELLA?

There are many life-changing benefits to receiving KYBELLA injectable treatments from KH Plastic Surgery. Most patients in the greater NYC area find benefits such as:

  • Balanced facial features and contours
  • Improved self-confidence about your appearance
  • Long-lasting, permanent, and natural-looking results
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • More youthful and healthier-looking appearance
  • Slimmer jawline and thinner neck

Who are the Best Candidates for the KYBELLA procedure?

If you are in the New York City area and looking to reduce or eliminate a double chin but don’t want to have major surgery, then Kybella may be exactly what you have been searching for. Our ideal patients for Kybella are:

  • Are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have a moderate amount of unwanted fat beneath the chin
  • Maintain realistic expectations and a positive outlook toward the results
  • Non-smokers
  • Prefer the use of a non-surgical treatment
  • Struggle to get rid of unwanted chin fat through traditional means

What’s the First Step?

When you are ready to get the KYBELLA treatment in the NYC area, the first step is to contact our practice and set up a consultation with either Dr. Hoschander or one of our skilled providers. When you come in for this appointment, you will be able to ask any questions regarding the injection and have your neck examined so there’s a better understanding of what degree of treatment you will need.

It is very important that when discussing your medical history with the technician you are detailed and honest. The more information that you provide allows us to make the smartest decisions and prevent or limit any possible side effects. Remember, we are here to help, not make things worse.

If you agree with the assessment that is made and have your treatment plan created, our Patient Coordinator will then help you schedule your first session and provide you with any instructions you will need to follow before your treatment as well as the full cost of your treatment plan.

What to Expect on the Day of KYBELLA

When you come into our practice for your KYBELLA treatment, strategic markings for the injection sites will be made and you will either have a topical numbing agent applied, or we can provide you with an ice pack to help with any pain or discomfort. This will be discussed during your initial consultation.

A typical session will usually have 20 to 30 (possibly up to 50) injections made under the chin. Once injected, the acid gradually begins to kill fat cells, which will be metabolized by your body over the next few weeks.

KYBELLA Recovery

After your injection, you will be able to return home, although you should expect some temporary swelling and bruising, which will subside within a few weeks. The swelling will be at its peak the first few days following your injection, but this is very common. You can help lessen the swelling by using an ice or cold pack after your treatment.

Other ways to help the swelling are applying a warm compress the first few days, wearing a chin strap for additional compression, and firmly massaging the treated area. You should take over-the-counter pain medication to reduce any pain or swelling during your recovery.

You will need to return for follow-up visits about a month after each session, but our Patient Coordinator will schedule your next appointment date. Do keep in mind that if you have post-Kybella treatment swelling, the swelling will have to subside before you can get your next injection. If you are still experiencing swelling before your next scheduled treatment, please let us know.

How Much Does KYBELLA Cost in New York City?

The cost of KYBELLA in New York City will vary based on several factors, such as how many injections are required, the number of injectables needed, and the number of sessions. The best way to get an accurate cost is to come in for your consultation and get an evaluation. After your provider has a better understanding of what you will need, you will be provided with a price breakdown sheet that will let you know everything your treatment will include.
