One week after my rhinoplasty I walked into Dr. Siegel’s office to finally see the results. I’d waited for this moment for more than ten years- and I was nervous. I’d compulsively found every list online of botched nose jobs. I researched all the worst possible outcomes of recovery, but there I was just one week later; I wasn’t stuffed with gauze, there was no heavy bruising, and it certainly didn’t hurt. Just a simple splint and what felt like the longest week of my life waiting for that appointment.

Dr. Siegel removed the splint easily and painlessly with a liquid solution and asked if I was ready to see my new nose. Seeing myself in the mirror for the first time after my surgery was unreal- it was a subtle, natural looking change, my nose finally fit my face. After waiting for nearly a decade, I finally felt like I had the nose that I should have been born with.

The KYBELLA® Process
If you’re interested in slimming your chin with KYBELLA® injections, the first thing you need to do is schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Siegel. During this meeting, he will examine your chin, go over your cosmetic concerns, answer any questions you may have, and design a customized treatment plan for you. He may also create a three-dimensional KYBELLA® “Before and After” image to show you the expected results. There is no set time for this consultation – Dr. Siegel will meet with you for as long as you need to feel informed and ready to move forward in this process.
Since each patient and each KYBELLA® procedure is unique, Dr. Siegel will give you individualized instructions to follow leading up to your appointment. While these may vary, we typically recommend that you avoid taking certain medications that could interfere with the treatment and stay properly hydrated. On the day of your procedure, we ask that you please thoroughly cleanse your face and neck before coming in.
The KYBELLA® treatment process is relatively simple, swift, and easy since it requires no incisions. Dr. Siegel may use a topical anesthetic to numb your chin area before beginning with your injections. He will also tailor the placement and volume of each injection according to your specific needs and preferences. Most KYBELLA® injection appointments take just about 15 minutes, but the length may be shorter or longer depending on your circumstances and goals.
Most patients are able to return to work immediately following their injections. More than 20 clinical studies have confirmed KYBELLA®’s safety and effectiveness. After your chin treatment with KYBELLA®, you may experience some mild pain, redness, swelling, numbness, hardness, or bruising around the site of the injections. You may use ice and analgesics (painkillers) to minimize any discomfort from the injections. Typically, you will schedule your next round of KYBELLA® injections approximately one month after your previous treatment. The number of treatment visits you require will depend on your personal cosmetic and medical factors, but most patients achieve their desired results within two to six appointments.
