We are proud to have been among the first practices in New York to offer Kybella
Kybella is an FDA-approved (deoxycholic acid) injection that can be used to permanently reduce excess fat below the chin, commonly known as "double chin." Kybella can also be used for fat reduction in other small fatty bulges such as the front of underarms or fat around the knee. Excess fat accumulation is influenced by multiple factors, and can be resistant to diet and exercise.
About submental fullness (double chin) Double chins (known in the medical community as "submental fullness") may affect adult women and men of different ages and weights. Both the aging process and genetics contribute to submental fullness. In a recent survey, sixty-eight percent of respondents said they were bothered by their double chin.
"I am excited to add Kybella to the solutions I can offer my patients for their body contouring needs in addition to the CoolMini CoolSculpting applicator and liposuction. We now have an excellent array of solutions available." – Dr. David Rapaport New York Plastic Surgeon
Although Kybella is a safe, non-surgical procedure, it should not be performed by just anyone. By choosing a board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Rapaport to administer your injection, you are ensuring the best care and outcome possible, rather than leaving your results to a spa technician or other beauty professional who may not have the extensive body contouring experience that Dr. Rapaport possesses. His precise knowledge of anatomical proportions in the face, neck and body allow him to deliver exceptional chin contours that are customized to complement the rest of the patient’s unique features. This highly personalized approach separates Dr. Rapaport from his competitors and makes him the ideal choice for your Kybella treatment in Manhattan.
Working in tandem with Dr. Rapaport is Dr. Smith, a world-class cosmetic surgeon who has completed elite fellowships in aesthetic surgery and craniofacial surgery. Dr. Smith’s expertise and skill in administering Kybella has earned him a reputation as offering among the best injectable treatments available in NYC.
If you are interested in learning more about whether Kybella is the best solution to your needs, please schedule a confidential consultation with Dr. Rapaport and Dr. Smith at their Manhattan-based offices. The doctors will not only be able to answer all your questions in greater depth, but they can also present you with numerous before and after photos of other clients so that you can see their work in action.
The consultation will involve a thorough examination of your face and chin, a review of your medical records and previous procedures, and instructions for pre and post treatment. Educating and informing the patient are top priorities for Dr. Rapaport and Dr. Smith. Listening and honest feedback are hallmark features of their practice in Manhattan. Communication is key, as a clear understanding between physician and patient is critical when it comes to achieving excellent results.
