Overview

Kybella is the first and only nonsurgical, injectabletreatment approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to eliminate submental fullness, often referred to as “double chin”. Kybella is made with deoxycholic acid, a natural substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat. When Kybella is injected into the submental area,the part of the neck under the chin), the fat cells are destroyed. The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery, a practice in Morristown, is one of the few centers in NJ that has been trained and certified to administer this new product that can eliminate a patient's double chin without surgery.

Administering Kybella

The Peer Group tailors every patient’s Kybella treatment plan to suit their needs. After assessing the patient’s chin, neck, and profile, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will perform a series of injections in the comfort of our exam rooms. The patient will be able to leave immediately after the procedure and resume their normal activities.

What To Expect

Patients should expect to have temporary swelling, bruising, mild pain, redness, and numbness for up to 1 week after their treatment. Results will start to appear 3 to 6 weeks after their treatment. Patients will normally receive 2 -3 treatments, spaced at least 1 month apart, to achieve the best possible result.

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs

Permanent Results?

Once the Kybella treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.

Safety Concerns?

Kybella has been approved by the FDA. Scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with Kybella, nationwide. Patients should disclose their full medical history to our physiciansduring their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. Kybella is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.

Kybella Vs. Liposuction?

Kybella and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Our physicians will discuss both options during the initial consultation to determine which option is the correct one for you.
