Even a small amount of excess fat in the upper neck area may cause the appearance of a "double chin" that is bothersome to both men and women. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) may be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. At Yonick Plastic Surgery of Midland, MI, Dr. David Yonick and our Nurse Practitioner, Karen, are pleased to offer a new method to eliminate neck fat. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical procedure for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid that works like the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat. Once it's injected below the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is eliminated, it does not re-form, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer profile and clear jawline for years to come.
The best patients for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes unwanted fullness or a double chin. This injection addresses stubborn sections of fat that cannot be minimized with usual weight loss methods because it is created by genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at or near a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the right procedure for your needs. While Kybella may remove small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction at Yonick Plastic Surgery.

"My entire experience at Yonick was phenomenal. The office is brilliant, well-designed, and modern. The waiting area is welcoming and the front desk staff are kind. It was my first visit and Megan did a wonderful job of explaining the necessary paperwork and what my visit would entail.Tara is a great nurse. She answered all of my many questions and provided me with thorough answers. The experience was very relaxing and at no point did I feel rushed. There was a very good blend of interaction and providing me with time to enjoy my time. At check-out, I was greeted by more team members and they expertly guided me toward a couple of products that I'll look forward to using. Overall, I'd go back and would recommend Yonick to anyone."- J.M. / Google / Jan 02, 2020

Kybella is completed during an in-office appointment. Dr. David Yonick or Karen may apply a numbing cream to the treated area, if preferred, after the skin is cleansed. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may need one treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Yonick Plastic Surgery.
What to Expect
Kybella treatments do not require anesthesia, so you can leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your usual routine. You may experience temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling beneath your chin; however, this should not last longer than 2 – 3 days. Call Yonick Plastic Surgery immediately if you are feeling any unusual side effects, like facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells eliminated by Kybella do not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger, so you must maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and slimmer and your profile will be more defined.
