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.

"My experience at the Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery was stellar from start to finish. I went to Dr. Tamburrino because he is double-board certified – a HIGHLY trained and experienced plastic surgeon. A very cheerful and informative staff greeted me upon entering. Dr. Tamburrino answered all of my questions and he alleviated my concerns. I really appreciated his honesty. He does not try to oversell on procedures but provides his expert opinion on what he thinks will look amazing and NATURAL! I’ve gone to other plastic surgeons before (because I had breast cancer) however Dr. Tamburrino is truly the best! He is an artist and perfectionist. I am so happy with my results! I cannot recommend anyone higher than Dr. T!"- M.D. / Google / Sep 29, 2019

"I highly recommend Dr. Joseph Tamburrino and his wonderful staff! I had breast cancer and was devastated at the internet photos of breast reconstruction. I did not want to look like that! When I went to Dr. Tamburrino, he immediately put all my fears to rest. He said no one would be able to tell I had breast surgery, and he is right! After breast reconstruction, I feel like me again! I don’t feel like and look like I have had breast reconstruction. I can’t say enough of Dr. Tamburrino’s wonderful bed side manner. He makes me feel important and cared for. His staff is just as wonderful, and they helped me through a very difficult time of my life."- L.K. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
"I can not say enough about the wonderful care I have received from Dr. Tamburrino. I have a very complicated medical history and was on steroids for 2 years. I developed Breast Cancer and had Bilateral Mastectomies. Dr. Tamburrino expertise cautioned me against Reconstruction until I tapered and was off the steroids. I was extremely disappointed however his opinion to wait was the proper thing to do. It was worth the wait as I go through weekly visits since January to have my expanders develop. His kind, caring, professional manner down right enjoyable. I had not been having trouble with pain until as I draw nearer to the end. I had one week where I was experiencing more pain than usual. As it progressed I called Dr. Tamburrino who saw me in minutes at his office. I fortunately was visiting family in Doylestown because I live two hours away. It was Easter Eve at 10 pm he saw me and relieved my terrible pain. So willing, helpful and kind! He has been the most amazing physician, when dealing with a Cancer diagnosis having him help me through this Reconstruction has been an uplifting experience. Anna his nurse makes you feel like family. She’s been supportive and caring. Kristen his Administrative Assistant is always upbeat and helpful! At the time waiting a year seemed so awful, but Dr.Tamburrino’ s professional opinion was totally in my best interest and I know now that giving me the best care was his goal. Thanks Dr. T, you are the BEST!! Lyn McNair"- L.M. / Google / Aug 29, 2019
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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery.
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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery.
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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery 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 Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery 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.
