Dr. Philip Miller Introduces Non-Invasive Procedure To Treat Double Chins
Date:6/11/2015

(PRWEB) June 12, 2015

Dr. Philip Miller, one of New York’s most respected facial plastic surgeons, has introduced a new, non-invasive procedure that will enable patients to remove double chins without surgery. This newly approved treatment by the FDA is called Kybella.

According to Dr. Miller, Kybella is an injectable treatment designed for adults that struggle with moderate-to-severe fat below the chin, which is also known as submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. This acid works by dissolving fat, which then allows Dr. Miller to sculpt the chin without the need for surgery.

“Kybella is a version of deoxycholic acid,” explained Dr. Miller. “It is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat.”

After Kybella is injected into a patient’s chin, Dr. Miller said it begins to break down and destroy the fat cell’s membrane. What remains of the fat cell is then absorbed back into the body. Kybella is an alternative to liposuction or surgery to remove double chin fat. Dr. Miller recommended that most patients would require a series of 10 to 20 injections per visit. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes and is conducted safely in Dr. Miller’s New York office.

“Ideal candidates for Kybella treatment are people with high skin elasticity under their chin,” said Dr. Miller. “Individuals with a lot of excess skin under their chin and neck are not good candidates for this procedure.”

Side effects that patients may encounter as a result from Kybella injections include swelling, bruising, pain, and some numbness around the areas of the injection. Most side effects clear up within 24 to 48 hours following the injection. There can also be some serious side effects including injuring the marginal mandibular nerve, which is the nerve that controls facial expressions. If it becomes injured, it can result in an off-balance smile. This typically happens when shots are administered too close to the nerve.

Not only is Kybella non-invasive, Dr. Miller said that patients also benefit from the very quick recovery time.

“It takes two or three days to heal,” he said. “Patients may resume their daily activity after treatment with no downtime.”

Kybella is manufactured by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, which based in Westlake Village, California. Prior to its recent approval by the FDA, the company called the injection ATX-101 before landing on the name Kybella.

The cost of a Kybella chin fat removal treatment in New York City can range anywhere from $550 per treatment. Since Kybella is a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by insurance. Patients that want to learn more about how Kybella can help remove their chin fat, then they should call Dr. Miller’s office at (212) 750-7100.

Board certified in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery, Dr. Miller is nationally recognized for his expertise in Rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation procedures. With over 20 years of experience, he has served as a member of the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He is also a guest examiner for the American Board of Otolaryngology. Dr. Miller is a frequent lecturer at national conferences and is often featured on national television news programs and in magazines.
