Kybella is a nonsurgical neck liposuction injection that is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Kybella, the first injection approved for fat reduction in the submental area, is made with deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that breaks down and absorbs fat for a visible improvement. Kybella is injected into the part of the neck under the chin (the submental area), and the gradual fat reduction eliminates the fullness that creates a "double chin." At Dr. Robert J Paresi, Jr. MD of Chicago, plastic surgeon Dr. Paresi offers this advanced new treatment to their Chicago area patients as an alternative to surgical neck liposuction. During the patient's initial consultation at his Downers Grove, IL office, Dr. Paresi will explain the differences between Kybella injections and neck surgery to help the patient determine which procedure is best for their cosmetic needs and goals.

Dr. Paresi tailors every patient’s Kybella treatment plan to suit their needs. After assessing the patient’s chin, neck, and profile, our Doctors will perform a series of injections in the comfort of her on-site minor procedures room. The patient will be able to leave immediately after the procedure and resume their normal activities.

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. Patients should disclose their full medical history to their Doctor during 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 neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Our Doctors will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
