Kybella is the first and only nonsurgical neck liposuction approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Kyle is made with deoxycholic acid, a natural substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat. When Kybella is injected into the submental area( the part of the neck under the chin), the fat cells are destroyed. Dr. Dana Khuthaila, a plastic surgeon in New York City with an office in Midtown Manhattan overlooking Central Park, is trained in this new technology and can eliminate a patient's double chin without surgery and minimal recovery time.
"22 Year Old Unhappy with Profile of the Nose - I always felt that my profile was missing something but I didn't know what I wanted to correct. I realized after taking countless profile selfies that the tip of my nose was lacking perky-ness (If that any makes sense). I've thought about having a rhinoplasty to correct it but I didn't want to break my nose in the process being that all I wanted was structure to the tip. Dr.Khuthaila recommended we try a non surgical temporary treatment and we proceed from there. I was amazed with how quickly and instantly the results were! My nose has the perfect uplift I was looking for and she saved me from going under the knife when it truly was not necessary. The result is exactly what I wanted and I cannot thank her enough for all her help and support. <3 "- S. / RealSelf / Apr 06, 2017

"I met Dr. Khuthaila through a mutual friend. I have been thinking for a couple years how much I would love to have a breast reduction. Where do you start? Something like this you want to be able to trust in your doctor. Also to know that your doctor is listening to your wants. I found Dr. Kuthaila to be a very dedicated and truly passionate about what she does for people. Plus she listens! I am from Connecticut and was willing to travel into New York so that I could have her do my surgery. I was a bit apprehensive about this , but her location is so easy to get to and out of New York. I started the process and was worried about my insurance coverage from someone out of network. The office people where so helpful and I got my OK. Then we set up date and time and they even booked my hotel for me! Really there was nothing to worry about. Now to the results. I am so happy with the way I look and feel!! No more neck and back pain! Can I say I haven't been this perky since I was 18 years old!! There is a lot to say about being really secure in your choice of surgeons. I would highly recommend Dr. Khuthaila."- L.M. / Yelp / Sep 29, 2017

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs
Once the Kybella treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
Kybella has been approved by the FDA, scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with Kybella. Patients should disclose their full medical history to Dr. Khuthaila during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. Kybella is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
Kybella Vs. Liposuction?
Kybella neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Dr. Khuthaila will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
