Kybella: The Destroyer of Double-Chins

Chin Treatments New York, NY

Feeling self-conscious about your double-chin? Tried diet and exercise and still see your double-chin? A double-chin or submental fat affects both men and women and could be the result of aging, diet, and genetics. A double-chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops under the chin. In 2015, the FDA approved a drug to target double-chins without liposuction or surgery. Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable technique used to target fat beneath the chin without any incisions.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella acts the same as deoxycholic acid that your body naturally produces. The Kybella procedure uses deoxycholic acid injections to breakdown fat cells beneath the chin. The number of small injections administered to the chin at each session will vary per person. A numbing cream or ice pack will help alleviate any discomfort caused by the injections. Once the fat cells are destroyed that area will no longer store fat. The breakdown of the fat cells is then re-absorbed back into the body. The number of treatments will vary per person based on their fullness. For the best results, multiple treatments may be recommended. You may experience mild bruising, redness, and swelling following the procedure.

What are the benefits of Kybella?

  • Jawline Definition
  • Long-lasting Results with Stable Weight
  • Relatively Fast Procedure
  • Minimal Downtime
  • Non-invasive Procedure

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!

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.
