Even a small amount of excess fat under your jaw can give you the appearance of a double chin, which can be a source of embarrassment for both women and men. The excess fatty tissue under the chin (called submental fat) may be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations, and may not respond to diet or exercise. Long Island plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev are pleased to offer an innovative, nonsurgical method to slim away a double chin: Kybella. This FDA-approved injectable treatment stimulates your body’s natural processes to melt the fat away and restore a more smooth, defined jawline.

What is Kybella?

In the past, the only effective method for removing double chin fat was liposuction or surgery. With Kybella, you can achieve similar results with a series of injectable treatments. The active component in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which helps your body break down and absorb fat cells. Once injected into the under-chin fat, you will begin to see a visible decrease occur. As your body sheds the fat, the cells affected are gone for good. You can enjoy your slimmer, more youthful look for years to come. Call our office in Long Island, NY, to learn more today.

Is Kybella right for me?

The ideal candidates for Kybella in Long Island are both women and men who suffer from an unattractive double chin. This injection treats resistant pockets of fat that do not respond to standard weight loss techniques, caused by genetics, aging, and several other conditions.

If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to reduce the fat beneath your chin, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can correct small or moderate pockets of fat beneath the chin, larger pockets of fat may require neck liposuction at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery.

Your Kybella treatment

Your Kybella treatment will be performed in one of our private treatment rooms, beginning with a full cleansing of your skin and numbing cream applied if requested. Once your skin has been cleansed and prepared, the Kybella is delivered with a series of small injections. The entire treatment lasts around 15 minutes. You may need a single treatment to reach your goals, or a series of injections spaced three weeks apart for optimal results.

Recovery after Kybella

Kybella doesn’t require general anesthesia, so you can leave our office as soon as your treatment is complete, returning immediately to your regular routine. You may have short-term bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin, but this shouldn’t last more than a few days. Contact North Shore Cosmetic Surgery right away if you experience any unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven.

Your results

Your results will appear gradually in the weeks following your injections as the product works its magic. You will notice your double chin shrinking, and your jawline becoming more defined and aesthetic. The results can last for many years as the fat cells destroyed by Kybella do not regenerate, but your body may accumulate new fat in the area if you do not maintain a stable weight. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and sleeker, with an aesthetically-defined neckline.
