Do you have a double chin or other small fat deposits you want to shrink permanently? Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure used to reduce fat under the chin and is also used all over the body to remove small, stubborn pockets of unwanted fat. At LM Medical NYC, we offer non-invasive Kybella injections for double-chin treatment and fat reduction at our clinic in Manhattan.


Genetics, aging and lifestyle factors can all contribute to fat accumulation that is difficult to lose with diet or exercise. Fat under the chin, “love handles,” saddlebags and other trouble areas can be hard to slim without cosmetic treatments or surgery. Kybella injections offer an alternative to liposuction, dissolving fat cells with a non-invasive treatment. A series of Kybella injection treatments can permanently reduce a double chin or other areas of unwanted fat without surgery or downtime.

Kybella Injections FAQs

What is Kybella (deoxycholic acid)?

Kybella is a non-human, non-animal FDA-approved formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that causes the destruction of fat cells. Once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate fat, and they are permanently removed.

What does the procedure entail?

Kybella is administered by injection into the portion of the body with excess fatty tissue. Each treatment typically takes between 5-15 minutes and is customized to match the patient’s goals. Typically, patients will start to experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella?

Kybella is a recommended treatment for patients in good health that want a non-surgical option for slimming the area under the chin and small areas on the arms, inner thigh, legs, buttocks and back.

What is a typical treatment plan?

Patients typically receive 4-6 injections spaced out one month apart from each other with a maximum of 6 treatments.

How do I prepare for my first treatment with Kybella?

Little preparation is required for Kybella. It is advisable not to schedule this procedure prior to any major events. In addition, avoid ibuprofen and acetaminophen 7 days prior to treatment in order to prevent post-treatment bruising, which is otherwise typically minimal.

What is a typical treatment like?

The area is first cleansed. A grid is placed to ensure even distribution of Kybella injections. Then, Kybella is placed in the treatment area followed by icing, which takes 5-15 minutes.

What do I do post treatment?

We recommend using ice packs at the injection site for 24-48 hours to minimize swelling as Kybella breaks down the fat cells.

What are the side effects with Kybella?

Side effects may include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness or the formation of small areas of firmness.

When do I start to see results?

Patients will start to see noticeable results at four to six weeks.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
