Kybella® in Vineland, NJ
At the Eye Institute of South Jersey, PC, we want to help you put your very best, most confident face forward. That’s why Dr. David R. Pernelli, MD, offers Kybella, the only FDA-approved treatment used in adults to destroy fat cells under the chin to improve profile appearance.
Having a double chin (submental fullness) is often genetic and can make you unhappy and self-conscious. Stop hiding behind scarves and high neck tops and find out if Kybella is right for you.
How Kybella Works
Kybella is made of synthetic deoxycholic acid (deoxycholic acid is naturally found in our bodies and acts to break down dietary fat). Specifically-placed, Kybella injections into the fat under the chin destroys fat cells leaving healthy cells intact. As the cells die, they are no longer able to accumulate fat resulting in a tighter, more contoured chin area.
What to Expect with Kybella
Depending on your aesthetic goals, Kybella may provide the results you desire in several treatments or in just a single treatment. The entire treatment process typically takes less than 30 minutes and is performed by Dr. Pernelli in our South Jersey office.
The best news is that once the fat cells are gone, they will not return. Your new chin profile should remain constant if you live a healthy lifestyle.
During your consultation Dr. Pernelli will assess your appearance and medical history to ensure that this will be a safe treatment for you. You will be informed about any potential side effects of Kybella during your consultation and you should expect temporary bruising and swelling in the neck area after the procedure.
