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 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
"Excellent and highly qualified. She’s busy because she’s fantastic. Her results reflect her perfectionism and caring. Best in Boston. Staff great. Facility is top notch."- J.M. / Google / Dec 19, 2020
"Dr. DeRosa did a perfect job on my rhinoplasty. I saw age and gravity were accentuating the bulbous tip and drawing down my profile when smiling. Jaimie clearly heard and saw the issue, expressed her vision, and performed professionally to give me the best result. I am very pleased. It looks great and just like the computer image initially projected. Moreover, she is very tuned in and caring. She is a lovely, highly trained, artistic, and perfectionistic. The facility was topnotch. I consulted with my doctor friends, even another top Rhinoplasty guy in Brookline, and I chose Dr. DeRosa based upon my research which highlighted her training/skills, communication, and followup care. Her staff is great. She consistently has the same topnotch anesthesiologist. I was made to feel comfortable. My result is just what I wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any cosmetic procedure."- J.M. / Yelp / Dec 13, 2020
"Dr. DeRosa did a rhinoplasty on me, a woman of 62, to address a bulbous tip that angled down. She did a spectacular job. She is also one of the warmest most personable surgeons one could want. She explained the procedure and did excellent follow up in her comprehensive, modern office/facility on Newbury Street in Boston. Her whole staff, including the anesthesiologist was informative and supportive. I highly recommend her perfectionist skills at plastic surgery."- J.B. / Healthgrades / Dec 13, 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.
