What is KYBELLA?
Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area will cause the appearance of a "double chin" that many people find bothersome. The additional pockets of fat beneath the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Founding dermatologist Dr. Adam Bodian is happy to provide a revolutionary method to reduce neck fat at Bodian Dermatology in Great Neck, NY. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which acts like the body's natural DA to break down and absorb fat cells. After it's injected beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells will not return so you can enjoy your new slimmer profile and stronger jawline for years to come.
Ideal Candidates for KYBELLA
The best candidates for KYBELLA injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection corrects resistant areas of fat that cannot be removed with common weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, or several other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to eliminate the fat in your neck, KYBELLA performed at Bodian Dermatology may be the correct treatment for you.

Our Kybella Injection Technique
KYBELLA is administered during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Bodian will often apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, once the skin is cleaned. The injection takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes a few small injections into the submental area. Patients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look while some may require several treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Bodian Dermatology.
What to Expect After Injections
KYBELLA treatments do not require anesthesia so you can leave the office as soon as you are comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may have short-term bruising, swelling, or numbness below your chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Call Bodian Dermatology immediately if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells that remain can grow larger so you should keep a steady weight after your KYBELLA injections to keep new pockets of fat from forming. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck looking slimmer, tighter, and more defined.
KYBELLA Frequently Asked Questions
How long do results from KYBELLA last?
KYBELLA eliminates submental fat cells, preventing the accumulation of excess fat under the chin. After treatments(s) and obtaining your desired appearance, those cells will not return. The effects of KYBELLA and a cleaner neckline with no double chin will be noticeable for many years to come.
How much does KYBELLA cost?
Your costs for KYBELLA will vary based on how many appointments you need. During your consultation, a customized treatment plan will be created to fit your budget and goals. Dr. Bodian can also discuss payment options with you during your consultation.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of unwanted fat on the body?
Currently, KYBELLA is approved to treat areas below the chin and has been proven to reduce fat that creates the appearance of a double chin. The safety and efficacy of KYBELLA on other parts of the body with excess fat have not been fully evaluated. It has not been approved by the FDA for use beyond the submental area.
