The Newvue Approach to
Dr. Min or Dr. Levy will take the time to fully understand your goals and ensure that you have clear and realistic expectations about the results you can expect from Kybella. We will recommend a customized injection series to reduce the submental fullness.
How It Works
Kybella is an injection that mimics the body’s natural fat absorption process. Kybella is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid (a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat). After a series of injections you can see your double chin disappear without the need for surgery or liposuction.
Kybella may be right for you if:
- You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
Safety & Risks of Kybella Injections
This breakthrough treatment has been the focus of a global program involving over 20 clinical studies with over 2,600 patients.

Your Kybella Injection Procedure
Kybella procedures usually take no more than 20 minutes. Injection points will be marked on your skin with a special template. Ice may be applied to help numb the area prior to injection.

You can expect to experience mild soreness and pain after the injection. You may also have bruising and swelling that can last from a few days up to a week.
Once the Kybella has destroyed the fat cells, they are gone forever. On average, patients need 2-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
