Are you unhappy with the look of your profile due to fat under the chin? If so, you are not alone. A double chin, or submental fullness, is a top aesthetic concern for millions of men and women. Although it is a common complaint, many have not sought a cosmetic treatment because it is difficult to treat without the aid of surgery–until now. Kybella is a revolutionary FDA-approved injectable treatment that can remove submental fat and improve the contour of the chin. Its active ingredient is similar to deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance the body naturally manufactures. Dr. Milgrim, a New Jersey board certified plastic surgeon specializing in non-invasive cosmetic treatments and Kybella injections, performs Kybella injections at his Teaneck, New Jersey office.

Before, During, and After Your Kybella Procedure

  • Before: Before scheduling a Kybella treatment, Dr. Milgrim will consult with the patient to determine if the procedure is an appropriate solution. During the consultation, Dr. Milgrim will evaluate the chin area and overall condition of the skin to design the most effective way to achieve a more defined jawline. To reduce the risk of bruising, patients should avoid taking ibuprofen a week or two prior to treatment.
  • During: Using a fine needle, Dr. Milgrim will administer a small amount of Kybella to the treatment area. When injected, Kybella targets fat cells and permanently destroys them. Over the next few weeks, the body will eliminate the dead cells via its natural cleansing channels. As the cells are swept away, results will gradually become visible.
  • After: Because there are no incisions involved in the procedure, Kybella does not require a recovery period. Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Patients will experience some minor swelling, numbness in the treatment area. But these side effects are temporary and will resolve themselves in a day or two. The benefits of a Kybella treatment can be long-lasting. To best maintain results, patients should avoid weight fluctuations.

Why Choose Dr. Milgrim?

Although Kybella treatments are a fast and painless procedure, the injections should be done by a specialist who has been properly trained to administer Kybella. If done by an unqualified or inexperienced individual, there is an increased risk of adverse side effects. Dr. Milgrim, MD has extensive training in the latest minimally- and non-invasive cosmetic treatments, including Kybella. As a highly qualified facial plastic surgeon, he understands the anatomy of the face and how to safely achieve natural-looking, stunning results.

Scheduling Your Consultation

During your Kybella consultation, Dr. Milgrim will discuss your aesthetic goals and expectations. Although Kybella is considered a safe and effective treatment, there are some risks involved. Dr. Milgrim will review your medical history to confirm that your are a good candidate for the procedure.
