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 Center 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 Center Plastic Surgery.

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 Center 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.
