Even a little bit of extra fat in the upper neck area can create the presence of a "double chin," which is bothersome to most women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) are generally caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a softer chin and jawline for an undefined profile. DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA is pleased to offer a revolutionary way to eliminate neck fat. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical procedure for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once we inject KYBELLA beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable decrease in fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells cannot regrow so you can enjoy your new slimmer profile and defined jawline for years to come.
Is KYBELLA For You?
The best patients for KYBELLA injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection helps reduce stubborn pockets of fat, which common weight loss techniques can't do because of genetics, aging, or other health conditions. If you maintain a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to remove the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the right treatment for your goals. KYBELLA can address small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck. For larger amounts of fat, our doctors will generally recommend surgical neck liposuction or a neck lift.

"Derosa Clinic is a state-of-the-art skin care and facial aesthetics center. I recently had the most incredible facial with Steven. During my appointment he took the time to listen to my concerns and responded with a treatment plan including skin care products and IPL, (Intense Light Therapy) sessions. Steven is very experienced, gentle and his knowledge of treatments and products is endless. Beyond that, he is very kind and takes an interest in the person as well as the skin. You truly feel like you are the only person in the world while he's treating you. My skin is brighter, smoother and softer and I plan on a long relationship with Steven and Derosa Clinic. I would highly recommend them for any and all skincare needs."- L.Z. / Google / Jun 04, 2022

KYBELLA is completed during an in-office appointment. If requested, we may apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. Once we clean your skin, the procedure takes around 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may require a single treatment to achieve their desired goal while others may require multiple treatments spaced three weeks apart.
What to Expect
KYBELLA doesn't need general anesthesia so you can leave the office when you feel comfortable. After the treatment, patients can resume their daily routine. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising below your chin. These symptoms shouldn't last longer than 2 – 3 days. Contact DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa right away if you notice any unusual side effects, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your smile appears uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger. To maintain your results, we recommend keeping a steady weight after your KYBELLA treatments. This will help prevent new pockets of fat from forming. After this treatment, patients generally notice a tighter and slimmer neck and a more defined profile.
