Choosing Kybella injections over plastic surgery for a double chin

Dr. Frank Ferraro of Paramus, NJ understands the embarrassment a double chin can cause for patients who are self-conscious about their appearance. A double chin, or “submental fullness,” is a bothersome cosmetic concern for both men and women. Regardless of weight, some patients form this excess fat underneath the chin that can make patients look heavier than they really are. A double chin may develop due to fat cells or genetics. While plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction can be used to achieve desirable results, there are less invasive solutions for patients in the area to consider such as Kybella.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a special injection that is formulated with synthetic deoxycholic acid. This ingredient is naturally-occurring in the body, and can be injected into the chin area to target and break down unwanted fat. This is the first and only FDA-approved cosmetic injectable for the treatment of submental fullness, and continues to be the most conservative treatment method for patients in the area of Paramus, NJ. With just a few injection periods spaced weeks apart, patients can achieve noticeable results and maintain them for many years to come! Instead of liposuction, patients undergo a few injections to make a change in the excess fat deposits in the chin and neck area.

Am I a candidate for Kybella injections?

If you are an adult man or woman who feels self-conscious because of excess fat int eh chin area, and have not seen improvement with changes to your diet and exercise routine, Kybella may be ideal for you. Patients who want to avoid surgical procedures often find that Kybella injections are more desirable, eliminating the need for surgery, scarring, and infection risks. During a consultation visit with our team, patients can be evaluated to decide if Kybella is right for their needs.
