WHAT IS Kybella?
Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area may create the look of a "double chin," which can be bothersome for both men and women alike. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (also called the submental area) may be caused by aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics that contribute to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Thankfully, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino is happy to provide his patients with a revolutionary injectable formula that eliminates neck fat. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically crafted version of deoxycholic acid, which works like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat. After it is injected beneath the chin, you will see a noticeable reduction in the amount of fat present. When the fat has been expelled, the cells will not reform so you can enjoy your new slender profile and strong jawline for years to come. Contact Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to learn more about the effective outcomes of Kybella.
"After consultations with many plastic surgeons, Dr. Tamburino was by far the most knowledgeable and detailed. I’m so thankful I found him and I would recommend him over and over. Not to mention his staff is so welcoming and incredibly helpful. If you are thinking about a surgery/cosmetics this is the GUY to go to. Can’t say enough good things!"- M.M. / Google / Feb 05, 2021
"I was very reluctant to get a face/neck lift. I thought about it for a few years and it was seeing myself on video calls day after day that sealed the deal for me. I had heard from a friend that Dr. Tamburrino was an excellent plastic surgeon and decided that I would suck up the drive from South Jersey to Doylestown based on the recommendation. I am so glad I did! My neck and face have been restored to a much more youthful look and amazingly there are no tell tale signs of surgery. I feel a whole lot better about myself and my family and friends are very complimentary (and I think a few of them are now considering surgery for themselves). Dr. Tamburrino is a thorough , knowledgeable and accomplished surgeon who I put complete trust in and I'm forever glad I did!"- G.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 29, 2021
"The decision I made to put myself first and go see Dr. Tamburinno changed my life in the best way possible. I have never been more happy with myself and am grateful to him for being so knowledgeable and talented. From start to finish his staff is amazing and helpful beyond words ..... I have recommended him to many close friends and will continue to do so!! Lindsay Curtis"- L.C. / Google / Jan 29, 2021
"Dr. Tamburrino changed my life. After two failed breast implant surgeries after a double mastectomy, Dr. Tamburrino created beautiful breast and nipples that look amazing. He gave me back my life. I owe him everything and recommend him to anyone who needs reconstruction. And on top of that he has an amazing personality, I received amazing care. "- M.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 21, 2021
"Dr Tamburino is exactly who you hope for when faced with a difficult breast cancer surgery! He is a highly skilled surgeon, who is also caring and honest. He will tell you exactly what you need to know (though not always what you might want to hear) to get you through the long haul of surgery and reconstruction. I have had breast cancer with a bilateral mastectomy, chemo, radiation & expanders for reconstruction and have been going to Dr T for over a year. I feel now that he is the only plastic surgeon who was able to get me through my complicated journey. He always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend him to all my family and friends!"- M.D. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
WHO CAN GET KYBELLA?
The best patients for Kybella treatments are those who have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area) that creates unwanted fullness or the look of a double chin. This injectable addresses stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with common weight loss methods because of genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight but exercise and diet have not been able to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the best option for your needs. While Kybella may address small or moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may be better suited for surgical neck liposuction at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
Kybella is performed after your consultation inside one of our private treatment rooms. Dr. Tamburrino will typically apply a numbing gel to the treated area, if desired, after the skin has been cleaned. The session will last about 15 – 20 minutes, which comprises several small injections into the submental area. Some patients may only require a single treatment to reach their goal while other individuals may need several injections spaced three weeks apart at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa.
What to Expect
Kybella doesn't require anesthesia so you will be allowed to leave our office as soon as you're ready. You may experience short-term bruising, numbness, or swelling below your chin, but this should not last more than a few days. Contact Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa right away if you are feeling any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat that's eliminated does not regenerate, the remaining cells could potentially grow in size so you should maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking slimmer and tighter and your profile will be better defined.
A SMOOTHER, SLIMMER CONTOUR
Your profile no longer has to be negatively impacted by the presence of a double chin. With Kybella, men and women alike are able to achieve a slimmer neckline. Contact Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Doylestown, PA to learn how this FDA-approved injectable can help you achieve a younger, firmer look without the need for invasive surgery. Dr. Tamburrino or a member of his team will be thrilled to share these stunning results with you.
