Extra fat in the upper throat may create a "double chin" and could impact men and women's confidence. The excess pockets of fat below the chin (also known as the submental area) are generally caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations. This leads to a softer jawline and chin and a less defined profile. At DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery in Palm Beach, FL, we proudly offer a new way to reduce neck fat. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that works similarly to the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it is injected below the chin, you may see a noticeable decrease in the volume of fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells do not reform so you are able to enjoy your new slimmer profile and clear jawline for years to come.
Is KYBELLA Right For You?
The best candidates for KYBELLA injections have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. The injection helps reduce stubborn fat that is resistant to normal weight loss techniques because of genetics, aging, or other conditions. For patients at a healthy, stable weight who exercise and maintain a healthy diet but have difficulties getting rid of the fat in their submental area, KYBELLA could be a great treatment option. While KYBELLA is used to treat small to moderate pockets of fat in the submental area, larger pockets of fat may require surgical neck liposuction at DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery.

"I just had my initial consultation with Dr DeRosa and was very satisfied, after having seen two or three other facial, plastic surgeons prior. I was highly impressed with her passion, obvious skill and competency. In today's high volume, fast paced, often automaton medical world, her reassuring and gentle manner, after my recent facial trauma, was certainly refreshing, as well as her thoroughness in explaining her proposed treatment plan and followup visits . I will definitely be returning for my continued recovery from my facial injury. I highly recommend her services to the Palm Beach community as I am sure her new office in Palm Beach will be booming and successful for years to come."- M.D. / Google / Mar 15, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"The DeRosa clinic is one of my favorite spots in Boston. I schedule visits around Dr. DeRosa and lead aesthetician, Steven Giannetta’s availability. The practice is located centrally on Newbury Street in the heart of Back Bay. The experience is pleasant and effortless from ease of communication with appointment schedulers to greeting when you walk through the doors. The office is gorgeous with natural light shining through the lobby front windows and meticulously kept modern and spacious treatment rooms. Dr. Derosa’s hallmark is enhancement with emphasis on a natural aesthetic. I never feel rushed when speaking with her and that holds true with the rest of her team. Each member of the team shares an attitude of professionalism, excellence and compassion. Although there is not a treatment I have not liked, I am personally obsessed with dermaplanning and the Vi peel. My only complaint is not having a DeRosa clinic in New York...yet."- E.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Dr Derosa did an incredible job on my daughter... we specifically chose her because my daughter had breathing difficulties and we wanted someone double board certified. We met her after interviewing 3 other surgeons... and we adored her immediately. The night before surgery I saw the negative reviews she has gotten and it made me very nervous... but then I remembered that the percentage was tiny in comparison to all the surgeries she has performed. She knew exactly how to calm my daughter. We are now a week out of our surgery and all I can say is she was amazing. The nursing staff raved about her at Mass Eye and Ear...she listened to us and changed as little as possible. My daughter is thrilled and we are too...she is a true artist. We are thankful to all the lovely staff too."- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
KYBELLA is completed during an in-office appointment. After the skin is cleansed and if requested, we can apply a numbing cream to the treated area. The injection lasts about 15 minutes, which includes a few small injections targeting the submental area. Patients may need a single treatment to reach their desired goal while some may want several injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment.
What to Expect
KYBELLA doesn't need anesthesia so you can leave the office when you are comfortable to resume your usual activities. You may notice temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness below your chin, although this should not last more than a few days. Contact DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery immediately if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the remaining cells can become larger so you need to maintain a steady weight after your KYBELLA injections to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Optimal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing sleeker and slimmer, and your neckline will be more defined.
