A chiseled jawline is quintessentially masculine, and a slender chin and neck define femininity. Yet thousands of men and women have blurred profiles. Dr. Ariel Ostad offers Kybella in New York, a double chin removal option that does not require liposuction or surgery, and requires no downtime.



Kybella is a revolutionary treatment for fat under the chin, or submental fullness. These conditions can be hereditary, or they can be the result of age or excess weight. Regardless, it adds years and pounds to your face.

Kybella dissolves fat internally by utilizing its active ingredient: synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a natural molecule in body that aids in breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. It’s created naturally within the body, in the digestive tract.

Kybella is a synthesized version of this same element. Precisely injected into targeted locations, it disrupts the walls of fat cells, causing them to spill their lipid content. Destroyed fat cells and residual deoxycholic acid are harmlessly cleared by the circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Kybella Benefits

With Kybella, you can get rid of a double chin through a tailored series of treatments (usually about six), without the risks and recovery period associated with surgery. Other advantages include:

  • Brief treatment time: Each injection session takes less than an hour
  • Non-surgical: Kybella is an injectable treatment to reduce fat under chin; no surgery required

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved, safe, nonsurgical way to treat your double chin.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a treatment that is injected beneath the chin to destroy the fat cells. Your metabolism processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. The active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in our body that helps to break down fat.

Is there any downtime?

Because Kybella is an injectible, non-surgical treatment, downtime is extremely minimal. However, it’s good to note that you will experience some swelling in the site of injection for a few weeks, post procedure.

How many sessions do you recommend for best results?

Depending on the amount of submental fat you have, we recommend 3-4 sessions for the best results.

How long does the procedure take?

The average Kybella session will take 15-20 minutes.

Will my fat come back?

No. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good!
