Even a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area will cause the appearance of a "double chin" that may be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) may be caused by aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marisa Lawrence is happy to offer a new technique to reduce neck fat at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery Atlanta, GA. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical option for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid that acts as the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it has been injected beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate so you are able to enjoy your new slender profile and defined jawline for years to come.
The best patients for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects stubborn areas of fat that cannot be removed with common weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are near a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the right option for your goals. While Kybella can be used to address small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, significant amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery.
"Everyone was very kind and helpful. It is a very pleasant office atmosphere."- D.E. / Yelp / May 05, 2023
"I’ve had several procedures at this office, and I’ve been very happy at the outcomes for all of them, One of the procedures was the PDO facelift. I had sagging jowls and a small chin that made them look even worse. I am scared of surgery, so I thought I’d look into the PDO. I didn’t look normal for about 3 weeks, which, for some reason, I wasn’t expecting. One side of my face was swollen and the other wasn’t - I thought maybe they’d messed up. I will say that Dr. Lawrence was very supportive, even offering to do the procedure again or something else to fix it if it remained a problem. The swelling finally went down, but then I didn’t see very much difference for the next several months. However, it’s now been a year, and the collagen production has kicked in. I now look 10 years younger than my age, did not pay a fortune, and did not have to take the risk that comes with any surgery.I see that the person I had for this (Angela) is no longer at the office,, but I wanted to explain my experience for people who might be considering this procedure. I am going to do it again in a few years."- S.H. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2023

Kybella is done during an in-office appointment. Dr. Lawrence will generally apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, after the skin is clean. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes a few small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may require one treatment to get to their desired look while some may want a few treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery.
What to Expect
Injections of Kybella don't require anesthesia so you are allowed to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your daily activities. You may notice temporary bruising, numbness, or swelling below your chin, although this should not last longer than a couple of days. Call Marisa Lawrence Plastic Surgery immediately if you are noticing any unusual side effects, including facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the cells left over can grow larger so you need to 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 tighter, and your profile will be more defined.
