Kybella ™ is now FDA-approved for reducing fat underneath the chin! Kybella is now available in Doctor Kopelman’s Ridgewood, NJ and Midtown Manhattan practice. He has a simple targeted non-surgical option for men and women who desire a reduction in the excess fat below their chin. Some people have “heavy necks” or “double chins” that gives them impression of an overweight round face. Now,Doctor Kopelman has a non- surgical option to offer his patients, without the same risks associated with surgery.
Q: How does Kybella™ work?
A: Kybella is made of deoxycholic acid which can reduce the fat beneath your chin with a series of injections that will melt fat away. Once the fat cells are destroyed they are eliminated and expelled by the body.
Q: How is Kybella ™ treatment performed?
A: The procedure can take as little as ten minutes but does require a series of injections spaced six weeks apart over several months. The injections are placed in a grid pattern under the chin. Following a treatment, patients may experience temporary discomfort, bruising, swelling, or numbness. These side effects are usually short-lived. Doctor Kopelman will take steps to minimize any untoward effects. ∗ Individual results may vary.
A: Not everyone who has a bulge of fat beneath their chin are good candidates for Kybella™. Usually patients between their thirties and sixties are the best candidates for the procedure. These patients typically have good skin tone and do not have extreme degrees of skin or muscle laxity which predisposes to respond to Kybella™ in the most favorable way.If on the other hand you have significant skin and muscle laxity then Kybella™ would not be the treatment of choice.Therefore ,it is important to consult with a facial plastic surgeon who can you decide which treatment option is ideal for you before you embark on this treatment.
