Kybella Injections

New York NY Kybella injections

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. If you are concerned, self-conscious, or embarrassed by your double chin, contact Dr. Khosh to learn more about Kybella and how it can help your double chin disappear.

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

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.

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.
