NEW YORK, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- KYBELLATM (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for improving the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness or "double chin," a common problem area for men and women due to aging and genetics. Dr. Richard Swift, a double-board certified aesthetic plastic surgeon in private practice on the Upper East Side (www.plasticsurgeonnyc.com) is among the first practitioners in Manhattan to offer this revolutionary treatment.
"I am thrilled to be able to offer my patients KYBELLA, an innovative treatment that simply melts fat from the chin and upper neck area," said Dr. Richard Swift. "I have been trained on the proper technique for administering this injectable treatment to help ensure the safety of my patients. Until now, the only procedure available for reducing fat from this area was liposuction."
KYBELLA is unique because it is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, the cells cannot store or accumulate fat and once eliminated, they cannot return.
"This treatment represents the latest advancement in anti-aging injectable procedures. It is a welcome addition to the variety of non-surgical options that I offer my patients who want to look years younger, but still look like themselves and not like they had 'work done'," added Dr. Swift.
KYBELLA is an in-office procedure that typically takes 15-20 minutes and requires several injections. Patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. There is little downtime and side effects are minimal, such as bruising and swelling.
Dr. Richard Swift has been performing aesthetic procedures for more than 20 years to patients from all over the tri-state area. He has extensive training and experience in both surgical and non-surgical procedures for the face and body. He is committed to delivering high-quality and personalized care to ensure his patients' comfort and satisfaction.
