Get Rid of Your Double Chin with Kybella

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgeon

Kybella is a fairly new, FDA-approved injectable that can help get rid of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a double chin or turkey neck. Candidates for Kybella include men and women who have neck fat that may be caused by the aging process, genetics, or weight gain. Kybella is made with deoxycholic acid, which is a chemical naturally produced by the body that helps digest fat cells. Kybella rapidly destroys fat and prevents fat from accumulating in the future. The results of Kybella are expected to be indefinite. Once the fat has been digested, those cells can no longer rebuild fat, so no treatments will be needed in later years.

Many patients like that Kybella treatments are completely noninvasive and nonsurgical, yet the results are significant. Treatments are administered in our office and take less than an hour. The effects of Kybella are cumulative. Depending on a person’s needs, between two and six sessions are required to achieve maximum results. Treatments are spaced between four and six weeks apart.

During each Kybella treatment, many tiny injections will be applied with a small needle directly into a patient’s neck.  Your desired outcome and how much fat there is under the chin dictates the exact number of injections that will be needed. There is mild discomfort from the injection and the chemical going into the skin, but most people tolerate the procedure easily. Numbing creams and ice packs are used to help ease any discomfort the procedure causes. For a day or two following the injection, there can be swelling, redness, or mild bruising.

Kybella injections are a viable alternative to liposuction or chin lift surgery. It improves definition, contour, and defines the jaw line. Patients are reporting positive results. Dr. Khosh, dual board certified, offers this groundbreaking treatment in our office on Park Avenue in New York City.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.
Leah G.
Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
