In April 2015, Kybella injections were approved as a cosmetic method of getting rid of a double chin without surgery. Kybella is made up of deoxycholic acid, which is something that the body naturally makes. This deoxycholic acid helps to absorb fat, according to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Kybella injections are given into the neck tissues to destroy fat cells. These injections are an alternative to liposuction and double chin surgery.
Dr. Maurice Khosh in New York, New York, is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon that is proud to offer this newest non-surgical option for the reduction of fat, the infamous “double chin,” that causes millions of Americans to feel self-conscious about their appearance. This non-invasive treatment is a fat-dissolving agent that works by breaking down fat cells and allowing them to re-absorb back into the body. Kybella injections are extremely effective for small pockets of fat that can form under the chin.
Double chins are associated with age and being overweight, however, genetics play a huge role in the development of double chins. Many people will find that they begin to notice a slight double chin forming as early as their twenties if they have a family history of double chins. Even people who are incredibly physically fit can have fat develop under the chin. A double chin creates a lack of definition between the chin and neck, and it can make people appear older and heavier than they really are.
Dr. Maurice Khosh is located in the heart of Manhattan as a renowned facial plastic surgeon. He offers this revolutionary treatment, along with many other advanced options for facial alterations, in order to help patients put their best faces forward.
