What is Kybella?

Reduce submental fat without surgery.

At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery Kybella targets and eliminates the fat cells under the chin with its active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, which works by disrupting and permanently destroying fat cells (adipocytes) in the areas of injection. Over the next six weeks, the destroyed fat cells are naturally eliminated by your body, leaving you with a slimmer and more defined jawline.

How do I know if Kybella is right for me?

Consultation and same-day treatment is available.

For many patients in Brooklyn Kybella is an excellent option to reduce the look of the double chin without undergoing invasive surgery. When fullness under the chin can be pinched or is stubbornly present despite weight loss, it usually corresponds to an accumulation of fat. In these cases, Kybella is an excellent non-surgical cosmetic solution. On the other hand, patients who largely have excess neck skin or skin laxity as their cosmetic concern are not likely to benefit from Kybella treatment and instead are more readily treated with cosmetic surgery.

Kybella is also not approved for use on pregnant or breastfeeding women. Patients with active infections or bleeding disorders may also not be ideal candidates for Kybella. During your consultation, Dr. Khelemsky will take a complete medical history and assess your neck and jawline. In the context of stable body weight, Kybella treatment results are long-lasting as the fat cells are permanently removed and no longer store or contain fat. Typically three or more treatments, spaced about eight weeks apart, are needed to achieve optimal results. Dr. Khelemsky will discuss the anticipated number of sessions for your unique anatomy, along with any skincare recommendations, in your treatment plan.

“Dr. Khelemsky brings the “art” of medicine to a whole new level. She is a perfectionist that took her time with my procedure. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. My surgery was on a Friday morning, and Dr. Khelemsky came in on both Saturday and Sunday to ensure that I was healing appropriately and my pain was being managed… I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the results even now.”

Kybella Procedure

Expert training and authentic brand-name products are our top priority.

Before your treatment with Kybella Brooklyn patients will have the treatment area properly cleansed, and makeup removed. You may elect to have topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable. Next, the areas under the chin are marked with a cosmetic pencil for treatment. Using a very fine needle, Kybella is injected just under the skin. This only takes several minutes, and patients usually describe a mild tingling sensation. There will be mild swelling after the treatment, and an ice pack is applied for comfort. By choosing a highly trained facial cosmetic surgeon and master injector like Dr. Khelemsky, you can ensure the best and safest results from your Kybella treatment.

Kybella Recovery

Three or more treatments may be needed for optimal results. Following a treatment of Kybella Brooklyn patients may experience varying degrees of soreness and redness for up to one week. Most patients note significant swelling under the chin, which corresponds to the fat-dissolving reaction that is taking place. Rest assured that swelling indicates your treatment is in progress, and it will subside within a short period of time. If you are in any discomfort, you can apply ice and take an over-the-counter medication for quick relief. The results of Kybella are gradual. Following each treatment, patients will notice a slimmer and more sculpted neckline under the chin after several weeks.

Kybella Results

Additional Kybella treatments may be recommended at follow-up visits. Most Brooklyn Kybella patients receive between three and six sessions to the submental region, spaced about eight weeks apart. Patients are advised to maintain a healthy diet and exercise plan, as large fluctuations in body weight may affect the overall chin and neck appearance, regardless of Kybella treatment. A significant gain in weight may lead to reaccumulation of fat cells in other parts of the face and neck and lead to unwanted changes.
