Kybella double chin fat removal is a specialty of Alpha Male Plastic Surgery in NYC.  Dr. Steinbrech is proud to offer the FDA-approved, non-surgical injectable treatment to eliminate double chin fat with Kybella. The procedure is available in his office in New York and takes about 15 minutes with no downtime.

What Is Kybella and How Can it Help Men?

Kybella™, also known as deoxycholic acid, is a non-invasive injectable treatment designed for male patients in NYC who have moderate-to-severe fat deposits beneath the chin, often referred to as submental fat. Dr. Steinbrech now offers Kybella™ as an effective solution to eliminate double chins without the need for surgery. This quick procedure, which typically lasts around 15 minutes, involves the administration of 10-20 Kybella™ injections directly into the area with double chin fat. Patients can return home the same day with minimal tenderness and usually experience little to no scarring as a result.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Kybella?

The perfect candidate for the Kybella™ injection procedure typically includes men with surplus skin beneath the chin. With Kybella™ treatment, patients will shed the fat cells that fill the excess skin beneath the chin. Once the fat has been dissolved, the optimal outcome is to have highly elastic and resilient skin, ensuring it can contract effectively following the procedure.

Kybella Benefits

Kybella™ is the only minimally invasive treatment available today to treat a double chin. Double chins tend to be highly resistant to diet and exercise, and therefore cannot be treated through self-help methods. Kybella™ is permanent and will not need to be repeated again in the future.

How does Kybella Treatment work?

Kybella™ contains a synthetic form of the ingredient known as deoxycholic acid which is a natural molecule in the body that works to eat away dietary fat. When the substance is injected into the fat underneath the chin, the reaction absorbs and terminates the existing cells, leaving patients with noticeable results and a reduction in the fullness of the treated area. Once treated, the existing cells can no longer retain fat. When patients have reached their desired results, no further treatment is required or necessary. 

Kybella™ can be injected to treat the excess tissue or pocket of fat located directly underneath the chin region. The number of Kybella™ injections each male patient needs is determined by the amount of excess fat that is under the chin, in addition to your desired results. The treatment process is quick and effortless and is typically completed within 15 to 20 minutes.

A certified specialist is the only individual that is authorized to administer the treatment. At each session, Dr. Steinbrech and his trained staff specialists will make multiple small injections throughout the desired area.
