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.
"Fantastic experience from my initial consultation to my post op follow up. The entire staff was wonderful. Kim was a pleasure to work with during scheduling and Carrie was wonderful leading up to my procedure. And I can't say enough about Dr. Paresi. Bedside manner is extremely important when contemplating a medical procedure and he made me feel very relaxed and sure of my decision. And his work is second to none. He's a very skilled doctor and a leader in his field. Overall I could not be happier with the whole experience. I did a lot of research prior to making my decision and I'm so glad I chose De. Paresi. I highly recommend him."- J.O. / Google / Aug 20, 2021

During my consultation Dr. Paresi understood my expectations and accurately informed me of what I could expect.My results were beyond my expectations! I feel like my body was completely transformed and gave me back the confidence I needed. his incisions were meticulously placed and the scars are flat, thin, and barely noticeable to the naked eye.

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.
