Dr. Frank Ferraro and his team at the Plastic Surgery Specialists of New Jersey offer a wide range of face and body surgical procedures. However, cosmetic plastic surgery is not all that he offers. Many patients are excited to learn that his office also provides a range of aesthetic treatments that are nonsurgical, including certain injectable services. One injectable that is newer to the market and providing amazing results is that of Kybella.
What is Kybella?
The FDA approved Kybella as an effective treatment for submental fullness, also known as the “double chin.” A double chin can form due to excess fat under the jaw that reduces the projection of the chin. This causes patients to feel self-0cnosicus about the appearance of their double chin, which may not resolve with diet or exercise. In fact, many patients struggling with their double chin are within their ideal weight range. With injectables such as this, patients can now achieve a more slimmed, contoured chin and jaw without undergoing plastic surgery.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is a medication that uses an ingredient called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid targets dietary fat that develops underneath the chin. It destroys the fat cells, allowing the body’s lymphatic system to flush them out with time. The result? Less fat beneath the chin and a slimmer appearance to the jaw and neck—without surgery! Kybella is safe and effective for many of our patients who want to avoid liposuction or other invasive treatments for the appearance of their double chin.
