Fleming Island plastic surgeon, Dr. William Wallace, uses Kybella, a new injectable by Allergan, to reduce fat deposits in the chin and upper neck. Unfortunately, sometimes dedicated diet and exercise is still not enough to lose stubborn fat in areas like the chin. These reluctant fat pockets can create a very displeasing appearance, such as a “double chin.” This can cause an individual to be reluctant to take pictures and enjoy showing off their body. While surgical neck liposuction is another treatment option, Kybella is a great alternative because it’s a nonsurgical procedure. The results produce a thinner looking chin that leaves clients feeling confidant and beautiful.
Kybella™ Neck Liposuction Reviews
"Excellent, kind caring doctor! Very skilled doctor and the only one I would trust for my injectables!"- D.R. / Google / Oct 15, 2017
"Excellent Doctor! - Excellent! Dr Wallace is a very kind, gentle doctor. I wait until I visit my daughter in Florida to get anything done, I don’t trust anyone else to do my injectables. I had Kybella and Voluma done and it still looks good and I’m very pleased with the results. He has taken years off my appearance without looking like I have had anything done! I would highly recommend him to anyone!"- D. / RealSelf / Oct 24, 2017
Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, works by destroying the dietary fat in the submental area. It will take 2 – 6 treatment sessions for patients to get their best results, but 79% of patients in clinical trials were satisfied from the final results of their Kybella treatments and they reported feeling that they looked younger, happier, and more confident.
During/After the Procedure
Our plastic surgeon or our trained Nurse Practitioner will clean the area to be treated and then carefully make multiple injections under the chin with the Kybella. Patients generally begin to see results after 2 – 4 treatment sessions, but if needed, patients can have up to 6 Kybella treatments with no more than a 4 week break between sessions. Many patients report minor, temporary side effects after their treatment, including pain, redness, numbness, swelling, and bruising.

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs
Once the Kybella treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are 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 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. We will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
