41 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Excess fat in the submental area (the upper neck just below the chin) creates what is commonly known as a “double chin.” Typically a hereditary condition, excess submental fat cannot be reduced with a healthy diet or exercise. Previously, a double chin could only be corrected with surgical liposuction, but now revolutionary Kybella injections can reduce moderate amounts of fat under the chin. Deoxycholic acid (the active ingredient in Kybella) is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely destroy fat cells in the submental area for a more sculpted jawline. Dr. Bill Aydin, a double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs Kybella treatments for patients in and around Paramus, NJ and White Plains, NY who want a more sculpted profile without the time and expense of surgery.

Procedure Technique

Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed from the area under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. The doctor will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.

Before/After The Procedure

After cleaning the area, the doctor will inject Kybella into multiple sites under the patient’s chin. Most patients will begin to see visible results in 2 – 4 treatment sessions. Patients can have up to 6 treatment sessions with less than a month in between each session. After the treatment, patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness.

Kybella FAQs

Other Areas?

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and a plastic surgeon will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.

Restrictions?

Before receiving Kybella injections, the doctor will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.

How It Works?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells cannot return.
