The Wall Street Journal Report: Double Chin Solution with Kybella

In this report from The Wall Street Journal, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar discusses the non-invasive solution to the double chin: Kybella. Dr. Rokhsar offers NYC Kybella injections at both his Manhattan and his Long Island offices.

Among the First to Offer Kybella In New York

Dr. Rokhsar, the founder of the New York Cosmetic, Skin & Laser Surgery Center, is proud to be among the first group of physicians hand-selected by Kythera (the maker of Kybella), to offer the new revolutionary Kybella ™ procedure: a new, non-invasive approach for reducing fat below and around the chin, the submental area and the neck.

Dr. Rokhsar is a certified trainer for physicians and speaker for Allergan Medical Institute.

“Submental fullness” near the chin and the neck is often associated with aging and weight gain and can develop even if you are relatively young or lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Kybella reduces the appearance of a double chin and provides a natural, firmly contoured appearance of the neck and submental area.

With offices in New York and Long Island, Dr. Rokhsar places small amounts of the fat buster drug, Kybella, into precise areas of the neck with fatty deposits reducing the heavy appearance through few simple injections.

Kybella injections are considered a major breakthrough in minimally invasive fat reduction techniques and have the potential to transform the contour of the jowls and the neck by dissolving the unwanted fat in these areas. Kybella injections have the potential to replace liposuction as a procedure for many patients with submental fullness, heavy necks, jowls or double chin.

Kybella’s Benefits

You may notice deposits of fat around your chin, neck and the submental area particularly when you speak or make certain facial expressions. These deposits may be prominent even if the rest of your facial features are balanced and in harmony.

Many New York Kybella patients find that chin fat resists diet and exercise and becomes more of a problem with age or weight fluctuations. Most previous remedies for this concern were surgical, resulting in downtime and discomfort.

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment to reduce submental fullness. It is:

  • An effective procedure that requires no downtime.
  • Tolerable, as injections are often combined with anesthetic for your comfort.
  • Capable of providing permanent improvement.

Kybella works by destroying the unwanted fat cells so that they cannot store or accumulate fat in the future. In other words, you should not require retreatment once you have reached your aesthetic goals.

New York Cosmetic Skin & Laser Surgery Center and Dr. Rokhsar offer Kybella to patients who are healthy enough for treatment, who have moderate-to-severe submental fullness, and who are looking for a way to achieve an improved chin profile as well as tighter neck.

What Should I Know Before Getting Kybella?

  • FDA-approved Kybella may require 3 or more sessions for desirable results.
  • Unlike chin liposuction, there is no downtime or compression garments required.
  • Desirable results are maintained permanently by a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
  • Complimentary consults are available at New York Cosmetic, Skin and Laser Surgery Center.

What New York Kybella Patients Can Expect

Start with a consultation at our practice. Dr. Rokhsar will talk with you about your concerns, conduct an examination, and help you decide if NYC Kybella is right for you.

Treatments are very tolerable and take little time:

  • Rokhsar will perform 2-6 injections around the chin depending on your needs and the areas that you are targeting.
  • He can combine treatment with an anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
  • The entire procedure takes about 20 minutes. Many people get Kybella during a lunch break from work.

Following treatment, you can return to your job or normal daily activities without special care. You may notice some swelling, redness, and tenderness for a few days, and then these effects should subside.

Most patients have treatment once a month (for up to six sessions) and notice improvement within 2-4 treatments. The benefits are permanent, and for many patients, they create a dramatic and important change in their appearance. If you have been looking for a way to improve the contour of your lower face and chin, we encourage you to explore Kybella treatments in NYC.

With Kybella, New York Cosmetic Skin & Laser Surgery Center helps patients achieve a younger-looking, more attractive appearance. Learn more online or by calling(212) 285-1110 for an appointment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella?

As with many novel procedures, some patients may not be entirely confident that they are good candidates for Kybella treatments. During your consultation with Dr. Rokhsar, you will discuss whether Kybella is a good fit for your desired final results. In general, patients who are good candidates for Kybella:

  • Want to eliminate excess fat around the neck
  • Are troubled by the look of their “double chin”
  • Are unable to eliminate their double chin easily through diet or exercise
  • Desire the confidence that comes with a more slender, more visible jawline
  • Do not want to undergo surgery or are not a good candidate for surgical procedures
  • Are comfortable waiting a few months for optimal results
  • Are comfortable with permanent fat loss results
  • Have realistic expectations about what this procedure can accomplish

During any consultation with Dr. Rokhsar, patients should be prepared to discuss their general medical history, including any medications they are currently taking. This is also true of Kybella, though the injection does not present many risks to patients. You should also be ready to talk about your desired results—where you would like to eliminate chin fat and how best to accomplish that.

It should be noted that Kybella is currently only approved by the FDA to treat chin fat; Kybella will work on other areas of the body as well. If you would like to eliminate fat in other areas of the body, Dr. Rokhsar may also recommend non-invasive procedures such as Coolsculpting or minimally invasive liposuction.

How Does Kybella Work?

Your body has natural ways of breaking down fat, and those mechanisms are generally activated when your body needs that fat for energy (for example, during rigorous exercise or when you might be fasting). Kybella is an artificial reproduction of a natural molecule in the body—that is, the molecule is chemically identical to what is already in your body, making this a very safe treatment.

In order to be most effective, Kybella needs to be administered by a highly trained and experienced cosmetic surgeon, such as Dr. Rokhsar. Once injected into the double chin, the molecule (deoxycholic acid) will disrupt the cell walls of the fat, essentially breaking the fat cells down (or “melting” them in other words). The fat is absorbed back into your body, but broken down and moved away from your chin. Therefore, any submental fullness—or any double-chin fat—will be removed.

Dr. Rokhsar is one of the few cosmetic surgeons in New York authorized to administer Kybella. This treatment helps many patients achieve a more slender, more athletic look without the need for surgery. Dr. Rokhsar also conducted the clinical trials for Kybella.

What are the Side Effects of Kybella?

As with any injectable treatment, there is a slight possibility of side effects. Patients can experience slight bruising, swelling and redness at the injection site following a Kybella treatment. This irritation typically subsides quickly.

Kybella Recovery and Results

There is no true “recovery” period from Kybella injections. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately. There may be some bruising or redness after the initial injections, but that should diminish within two to three days. Swelling and lumpiness can persist for a few weeks in some people.

The results of Kybella will generally manifest themselves over two to three weeks, with peak results showing a few months later. Most patients will notice a substantial loss of excess fat from around the jawline and neck. In most cases, the “double-chin” will diminish and reveal a more slender, sleek jawline. Our patients have reported a significant increase in confidence and self-esteem thanks to this procedure, as those patients are thankful to finally be rid of persistent, difficult to target fat.

When Can I Get Kybella?

Now that Dr. Rokhsar has helped spread the word about this procedure, demand for Kybella will undoubtedly rise. If you are looking for Kybella injections in the New York area, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is undeniably among the foremost experts in this procedure, and he offers Kybella at his Manhattan and Long Island, NY cosmetic surgery clinics.

Contact Dr. Rokhsar to get started on your transformation right away. A more athletic jawline could be just a few injections away.

Kybella for Chin Sculpting

Kybella—the first and only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for submental fullness—is now available from New York Cosmetic Skin & Laser Surgery Center and from our surgeon, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar. Dr. Cameron Rokhsar is one of the first doctors selected by Kythera, the maker of Kybella to offer this revolutionary procedure in Manhattan and long island and has been selected as a clinical trial site.

For patients in New York, Kybella can target:

  • The double-chin effect.
  • Weight that collects in the lower face regardless of diet and exercise.
  • Heaviness around the chin that can develop as you age.

Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells around the chin. Within a few non-invasive treatments, you can expect a major improvement to the way that you look and the way that you feel about your appearance.

Innovation and Effectiveness: Why We are Excited About Kybella

As a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained cosmetic and laser surgeon, Dr. Rokhsar closely follows developments in aesthetic treatment. He trains in the latest technology, prioritizes safety, and has invented several non-surgical procedures during his career.

He and our practice are proud to offer Kybella to our New York patients because it is:

  • Targets an important and common need. Many patients are dissatisfied with the appearance of fat around their chin. Few cosmetic options were available before Kybella, and most required surgery and downtime.
  • A game-changer. You may be familiar with BOTOX®, the injectable that made it possible for patients to appear years younger without surgical intervention. We expect Kybella to create a similar non-surgical revolution in how patients treat heaviness in the chin.
  • An FDA-approved solution. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Kybellaas a treatment for submental fat. Patients in the FDA process reported an improvement in the amount of fat they saw under the chin as well as improved self-image following treatment.

Getting Started with New York Kybella Treatments

If diet and exercise are not helping you achieve the results you want and if fat deposits around your chin are taking away from your appearance, we encourage you to explore Kybella.

Start by getting in touch with our practice. We will schedule an appointment for you so that you can get to know Dr. Rokhsar and our team, ask questions about treatment and learn what you need to make an informed decision.

Kybella treatments are non-invasive and take place in a short amount of time (typically 20 minutes per session.) Following treatment, you should be able to return to normal activities. After as few as two sessions, you should notice a significant improvement in the amount of fat around your chin. Patients typically need no more than six sessions.

The fat you can expect to lose will be gone permanently, leaving you with a natural-looking, more sculpted, and more youthful appearance. If you are ready to reveal your best self, get in touch now.

How Your Kybella Treatment Can Save You Money

One of the greatest benefits of modern procedures like Kybella lies in its simplicity and efficiency. One reason for the high costs of medical procedures has traditionally been the time and effort that goes into training specialists.

Think about it. You would be opting for major, life-changing surgery, and you would (rightfully) expect the best experience possible. That includes the time spent on the procedure itself, the expertise and training involved with going under the knife, the costs of anesthesia, etc. Surgeries like facelifts and liposuction can run you $4000+. And, of course, that does not even take into consideration lost wages from recovery time and potentially unforeseen consequences that can come with any surgery.

By comparison, Kybella treatments, on average run between $800-$1500 per treatment, requiring no more than two or three treatments in most cases. Much of this depends on your specific needs, and what exactly you want to have done. Side effects are minimal in most cases, and downtime is generally non-existent. While it does not carry the risks of surgery, Kybella is still a serious medical procedure that requires a highly trained cosmetic surgeon to administer.

Dr. Rokhsar, having taken part in the original clinical trials, is currently one of the foremost experts in this treatment, as well as one of the few doctors in the greater New York area certified to administer Kybella. In addition to helping pioneer the Kybella technique, he has been actively involved in the clinical development of both cosmetic device technologies and early FDA trials for laser liposuction systems.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a formula that safely melts the cell membranes to dispose of stubborn fat cells resistant to diet and exercise. Your body then flushes the fat cells out.
