An established AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice based in Manhattan, NYC, bodySCULPT® helps men and women address the double chin problem with the new Kybella injectable. Also called ATX-101, this deoxycholic acid injection is FDA-approved for improving the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness.
Aging, weight gain and hereditary factors are responsible for the buildup of stubborn fat under the chin, marring facial aesthetics to a great extent. The plastic surgeons at bodySCULPT® are adept at using Kybella to treat the fat that causes the double chin to result in an attractive, well-defined jaw line and neck. This injectable is effective because it contains a naturally occurring molecule that helps absorb fats.
The treatment involves administering multiple injections into the fat under the chin. The surgeons provide customized procedures after a careful evaluation of individual needs. A single treatment session, which may take 15-20 minutes, typically comprises up to 50 injections, 0.2 mL each and spaced 1-cm apart. Six single treatments spaced one month apart may be recommended for better results. Visible improvement appears 3-4 weeks after the injections.
This injectable treatment does not require any anesthesia. Men and women choosing this NYC practice for Kybella treatment can expect to resolve fat cells under the chin effectively, with tighter skin a well contoured jaw. Additional benefits include:
- Minimal downtime and discomfort
- Minimal bruising and swelling
- Faster recovery (compared to chin liposuction)
- Long-lasting results
In addition to minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments, the surgeons also provide a wide range of non-invasive procedures for men and women. Advanced technology and techniques are used to provide safe and effective treatments.
