Kybella® is a non-invasive double chin treatment that is FDA-approved. With age, excess skin and fat tends to accumulate around your neck, giving you and older-looking appearance. A Kybella® treatment creates a more contoured neck without a double chin or loose neck skin, reducing submental fat. Submental fat is the name given to the excess fat that forms under your chin and along your neck. Stubborn and persistent, submental fat can be extremely hard to treat through proper diet and exercise. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we can help you achieve a youthful-looking neck and facial profile by precisely targeting submental fat cells with Kybella® injections.
Kybella® targets submental fat and reduces the appearance of a double chin or submental fullness. A Kybella® procedure is an effective neck fat treatment because Kybella® injections specifically target and destroy stubborn fat cells in the neck, while not harming other healthy surrounding cells. By targeting only fat cells, Kybella® is a safe non-surgical double chin treatment that is scientifically engineered to contour your jawline by reducing submental fullness.
Kybella® is composed of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced and found within your body. Deoxycholic acid aids in your body’s absorption of your excess fat reserves. Because fat cells are destroyed and not shrunk, these cells can no longer gain or regain accumulations of fat, providing you with a youthful-looking neck in as little as 1 non-surgical Kybella® double chin treatment at our New Jersey office.
Kybella® injections are a simple in-office procedure that takes Dr. Asaadi just 10-15 minutes to administer. The length of your Kybella® treatment will vary depending on your individual case of submental fullness, the distribution of neck fat, and how many Kybella® injections will be needed to properly treat excess submental fat.

|Youthful contours beneath the chin|

We offer Kybella® in NJ and NY with our plastic surgeon Dr. Asaadi. A Kybella® consultation with our Kybella® doctor will begin with an examination of your neck and an assessment of submental fullness to determine if Kybella® injections are right for you. Dr. Asaadi will create a personalized Kybella® procedure to meet your individual needs to guarantee the best possible results. The amount of Kybella® injections needed will vary depending on your individual case of submental fullness and your personal goals.
Dr. Asaadi may divide your neck fat treatment into sessions to maximize your results. The number of Kybella® sessions you need will depend on your particular case of submental fullness. Kybella® sessions are scheduled at least 4 weeks apart to allow time for Kybella® to properly process the fat cells under your chin. Dr. Asaadi may divide your Kybella® treatment into 6 separate Kybella® sessions for the most pleasing results. The ideal Kybella® candidate is a patient looking to treat submental fullness.
Both men and women can experience the benefits of Kybella®. Kybella® may be right for you if you would like to treat a stubborn double chin or excess submental fat without the downtime associated with traditional surgery. You may not be eligible for Kybella® injections if you have had or continue to have a medical condition of the neck or an infection of the neck. Certain daily medications may need to be stopped prior to your Kybella® procedure. Ideal Kybella® candidates have realistic expectations with what Kybella® can help them achieve.
There is little to no downtime associated with Kybella®. Common side effects of Kybella® may include mild to moderate swelling, discomfort, redness, or bruising at the injection site. It is not uncommon for some patients to experience firmness at the injection site. These symptoms will subside in the days following your double chin treatment. The majority of patients are able to return to their regular activity shortly after receiving Kybella® injections.
Kybella® results are long-lasting because a Kybella® treatment destroys stubborn fat cells, which means these fat cells can never accumulate excess fat again. While some patients may see results after just 1 Kybella® treatment, other patients may require additional Kybella® injections and sessions for the best possible results. Most patients need only 2-3 days of rest to properly heal after a Kybella® procedure. The majority of patients see continuing results in the days and weeks after their Kybella® treatment, which may continue to improve with additional Kybella® sessions.
It is important that you choose a skilled Kybella® doctor who understands your individual anatomy, as every patient’s facial structure is different. Dr. Asaadi stresses the importance of choosing a qualified, experienced, and board-certified plastic surgeon when considering Kybella®.

Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have always had bags under my eyes, but as I became older, they seemed to get worse. Every time I looked in the mirror, all I saw were those bags. At least once a day at work, someone would ask me if I was tired. So, when my daughter announced her engagement, I thought it was time to do something. I made an appointment with Dr. Asaadi to see what my options were. My surgery was scheduled for August of 2012.
I was scared and apprehensive, but it was the right decision. I feel like a new person. No one asks me anymore if I am tired and I don’t shy away from having my picture taken. Dr. Asaadi and his staff have been terrific, so caring and professional. I only took one week off from work, and the bruising was minimal.
I probably would still have the bags if my daughter didn’t get married.
But, I am so thankful I had the surgery. And I was the proud mother of the bride. - M.W.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
I have known Dr. Asaadi for fifteen years. I first met him in my fifties. I look tired and worn out and looking for a more youthful appearance. In meeting Dr. Asaadi he presented a picture of a very sincere and up standing person.
He took the time to go over my goals and together we outlined what was needed. I had rhinoplasty and eye corrective surgery. Down time was minimal and the results perfect.
Several years later I had a face lift and again was completely satisfied.
Presently I am 69 years old looking way better than when I first met with him. Let me add that since my surgery Dr. Asaadi has maintained my youthful appearance by using injectable fillers. He is a true genius and a very honest person whom I highly recommend.
Also his staff is the best - A.E.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Just a short note to tell you how happy I am and to thank you for your wonderful work. As soon as I walked out the door from our first consultation, I had this “feeling” and I knew you were the one I could put 100% trust in. Thank you for your attention to detail, the care you’ve shown me, and your warm personality. I count myself luck to know you.
Thanks and all the best to you!
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“I am so very grateful for the tummy tuck that Dr. Asaadi performed on me. Dr. Asaadi has proven to me to be a meticulous artist of the body. I felt that the office and staff compares to no other. It has been 5 years since my surgery, I am 42 years old and I am feeling and looking just as good if not better since surgery. I am more confident putting on my clothing, especially bathing suits. Dr. Asaadi gave me my belly back from 20 years ago (pre-babies)."
I not only feel better in the way in which my body looks, but most important it changed the way I view myself inside and out.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
My name is Paula and about a month ago you gave me some botox injections. I had recently finished nine months of very tough treatment for a stage III breast cancer and I was neither feeling nor looking my best. My hair had just begun to grow but I still was showing way too much forehead for my comfort zone so I thought perhaps a little botox would give me a "lift".
Well, I cannot say enough about my results. I feel fantastic about the way my skin looks. In fact, the other evening I bumped into some friends at a restaurant. The first thing they said to me was "your skin looks fabulous! Even better than before your diagnosis." Now that's amazing. Since seeing you, I have received numerous compliments about how alive I look. Well, I do have a great attitude but I have to say that your skillful work has really made me feel confident.
Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. I wish all women who have been through treatment could feel as good as I feel. Thank you Dr. Asaadi.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“After 10 years of hearing comments about how tired I appeared, I decided that the time had come for me to take action which required more than just getting extra sleep!!!
I did my research and decided that Dr. Asaadi was the best choice upon seeing the results of past patients and the unique technique that he uses.
Now, close to two years later, I couldn't be happier! Not only do I look 10 years younger, but I now feel refreshed and vibrant. No more comments about how tired I appear.
This surgery not only restored my youth, but it greatly improved my confidence level. As a salesperson and a single girl, this is incredibly Important!!! Whereas prior to the surgery, I couldn't even think about walking out the door without makeup, now I am completely comfortable with it. No more trying to conceal or detract attention from the severe bags under my eyes!!! Friends and relatives, and even sometimes I, cannot believe the difference this surgery has made! One of the best parts is that it looks incredibly natural. No one would ever know I had anything done unless I had told them. A yearlong spa getaway would not have produced such results!"
It was hands down the best money I ever spent!!!!! I feel like I'm a walking billboard for Blepharoplasty.
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
“Once I decided to undergo a tummy tuck procedure, I knew my appearance would change for the better. What I did not anticipate is what a profound effect the results would have on my overall way of life. Along with giving me the body I wanted, the transformation gave me a great sense of confidence, reassurance, and security with myself. I now walk upright and confident, as opposed to slouched and submissive. I enjoy shopping for clothes and wearing two piece bathing suits on the beach.
If anyone is contemplating having this procedure done, I strongly encourage them to do so."
Thanks to Dr. Asaadi I have the perfect body and a better life. - CT
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you - the phrase is simple and the words are few, but behind them lies a world of appreciation. Special people like you make the world a brighter place.
Thank you for helping me get better. Also to improve day by day my special future. I pray God bless your hands to help the life of others.
On May 12, 2010 Dr. Asaadi performed a bilateral reduction mammoplasty, CORE AbdominoplastySM, repair of diastasis recti, VASER® LipoSelection of the back, flanks, upper inner thighs, pubic area, lateral chest walls, and a small area of the upper arms. I was very sore for the first week, but after that I could see improvement every couple of days. The more I walked the better and stronger I felt.
In exactly six weeks after the surgery I went with my daughter, son-in-law, and their 13 month old son to a destination wedding feeling great. My daughter was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to take care of the baby like I needed to ( her and her husband were in the wedding), but I had so much more energy and strength than I did in years. I felt so wonderful in my new clothes, and I can’t begin to express how many compliments I received.....especially in my “Tankini”!!!
I now look forward to getting up in the morning and picking out a nice fitting outfit for the day, and not some loose fitting shirt and baggy pants. Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Thank you, Dr. Asaadi....you gave me my self-confidence back!!!!”
Dear Dr. Asaadi,
Thank you for all your professionalism and time spent going over the procedure. I am pleased thus far; I can only imagine my gratitude in the months ahead, as I see my nose transforming. I put my face in the hands of a true sculptor and have nothing but praise and recommendation. Your staff are a wonderful representation of your reputation on being a true caring practice. Many Thanks.
