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.

"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
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.
