Dr. Shridharani’s Surgery in a Syringe℠ Body Contouring Treatment with Kybella in New York City
What Is Kybella Treatment?
Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2015 to destroy subcutaneous fat cells accumulating under the chin- creating the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring deoxycholic acid (a molecule found in your gastrointestinal track working to metabolize fat). This non-human and non-animal treatment permanently destroys fat and tightens the skin surrounding the treatment area. Kybella can be injected in a variety of areas apart from the submental region, i.e. arms, abdomen, and outer thighs to improve the overall contour.
What Is Body Contouring with Kybella?
Weight gain in these areas can be attributed to many things, namely genetics, age, diet, and loss of mobility. Traditional methods to treat excess fat required liposuction or thermal manipulation treatments. However,New York’s own Dr. SachinShridharani’s Surgery in a Syringe℠ for body contouring with Kybella is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that offers less downtime for the patient. Not all patients are candidates for Kybella; therefore, other safe surgical procedures performed by Dr. Shridharani still may be necessary.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Non-Surgical Body Sculpting?
The ideal patients are individuals with mild to moderate amounts of fat deposited in the respective treatment area. This often is accompanied by complaints or thoughts of said fat creating an unaesthetic contouring of the area. Dr. Shridharani will offer you his expert advice on whether you personally should consider body contouring with Kybella during your consultation. Each patient is unique; therefore, each person should receive a personalized treatment plan. Having injected thousands of individuals, Dr. Shridharani has perfected his Surgery in a Syringe℠ technique to offer patients the best outcome.

How Does Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Work?
Dr. Shridharani’s Surgery in a Syringe℠ for body contouring with Kybella treatment is a series of injections which work to rebuild your body’s youthful physique. The molecule found in Kybella, deoxycholic acid, is injected under the skin directly into the fatty tissue. Deoxycholic acid then works to destroy fat cells in such a way that they cannot be re-created in the future. However, it is important to note, with weight gain the remaining fat cells can reinhabit the area. After the destruction of the fat cells neocollagenesis (the process of making more collagen) begins offering the skin a tighter more youthful look.

Is Kybella a Permanent Treatment?
Yes! At only two stages in one’s development are fat cells produced by the body. The first is during embryonic development (when you are developing in the uterus). The second phase is during puberty. Kybella permanently destroys subcutaneous fat cells, which leaves the patient with a more aesthetically pleasing treatment site. It works well for those maintaining a healthy lifestyle before and after treatment. Diet, exercise, and metabolism contribute to one’s outcome and maintenance.
Everyone’s body uniformly accumulates fat; therefore, remaining fat cells (those not destroyed) can enlarge secondary to metabolic and dietary changes. However, one’s body will not create new fat cells. If one gains weight after being treated with Kybella, when they shed the weight they regain their results.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Most individuals require 2 – 4 treatments to reach their ideal aesthetic goals. But note, some patients have seen remarkable results in as few as one treatment. Treatment plans are individualized to accommodate the unique characteristics presenting in each individual patient. This being said, Dr. Shridharani will offer his expert opinion on the treatment plan that is right for you.
