Kybella is the first and only nonsurgical, injectable treatment 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.

"I have been under Dr. Failey's care since the summer of 2018 after a breast cancer diagnosis and the need for reconstructive surgery. Dr. Failey, is professional, very knowledgeable, patient, calm, reassuring and kind. He is very dedicated to his work and genuinely cares about his patients and their happiness.

"I have been using Peer Group for over 15 years because once you have experienced the best why go anywhere else? Dr Colon has a deft hand and keeps me looking “younger” than my years. Lol The office staff is warm and so helpful. And don’t even get me started on their VIP discount card, I don’t know any other offices that offer great different deals all year long and that kind of customer appreciation."- E.S. / Solutionreach / Sep 04, 2018
"Professional yet friendly staff...Dr Starker is wonderful, I had a problem that another Dr caused, and was told by 2 doctors that nothing could be done to fix it, Dr Starker had the solution. I couldn't be happier. Thank you I will return.. you are the best!"- W.A. / Facebook / Dec 26, 2018
"You will not find a more highly skilled surgeon than Dr. Colon. His expertise is second to none. He also has a very kind demeanor and is sensitive to his patients needs. The Peer Group staff is also second to none"- A. / Healthgrades / Dec 18, 2018

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs
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.
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.
