Just a little excess fat in the upper throat area can create the presence of a "double chin" that can be unwanted to both women and men. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for a less-defined profile. Long Island plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli and John Layliev, are proud to provide a revolutionary way to get rid of neck fat at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which acts similarly like the body's natural DA to break down and absorb fat cells. After it's injected under the chin, you can see a visible decrease in fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return, so you can enjoy your new, slim neck and strong jawline for years to come. Call our office in Huntington, NY to learn more today.
Ideal Candidates for Kybella®
The ideal candidates for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats resistant pockets of fat that can't be reduced with normal weight loss techniques that may be caused by genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can correct small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better treated with surgical neck liposuction at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery.
"I have seen Dr. Layliev for a few things. I had a suspicious lesion on my ear that he excised. Thank good it was benign! I have been to him for injectables. He does a fantastic job. My cheeks haven’t looked this good since I was 20. Even though I’m not ready for any surgical procedures. I have friends that have had procedures with him. The results are sensational. I would highly recommend this fantastic surgeon with wonderful bedside manners!"- C.K. / Google / Aug 30, 2018

Procedure Technique for Kybella®
Kybella is performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. We will often apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, once the skin has been cleansed. The injection session lasts around 15 minutes, which comprises of several small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may only need a single treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple injections spaced three weeks between each appointment at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery.
What to Expect from Kybella®
Kybella doesn't need general anesthesia, so you are able to leave our office when you are ready to return to your normal routine. You may have short-term bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin, but this shouldn't last more than a few days. Contact Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery right away if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat destroyed by Kybella do not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should keep a stable weight after your Kybella treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and sleeker and your neckline will be better defined.
