Long Island Plastic Surgical Group Offers KYBELLA for Double Chin Reduction

To Help Patients Reduce the Appearance of a Double Chin, the Surgeons at LIPSG Offer KYBELLA Injections, Creating a More Desirable Contour to the Upper Neck Area

GARDEN CITY, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2015) - Known for performing a wide range of innovative plastic surgery treatments, the team at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group (LIPSG) is one of a select few practices in Long Island now offering KYBELLA™, a non-surgical method for treating the appearance of a double chin. This revolutionary injectable has been FDA-approved for the reduction of moderate to severe submental fullness. The Long Island plastic surgeons explain that patients who are unhappy with excess fatty tissue under the chin can now achieve a more contoured and toned profile without having to undergo surgery.

KYBELLA™ is composed of deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body to break down dietary fat. When carefully injected into a person's trouble area under the chin, this molecule gradually destroys the targeted fat cells, which are then absorbed and processed through the body. The procedure is performed in-office at LIPSG and takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete the entire process.

Among the many benefits of KYBELLA™, the surgeons highlight the treatment's less invasive approach to reducing a double chin. They note that traditionally, patients would have to undergo procedures like liposuction or neck lift surgery if they wished to improve the contour of their neck. With this non-surgical alternative, patients of LIPSG can treat their double chin with a much shorter recovery period.

While one treatment of KYBELLA™ can help reduce excess fat under the chin, the Long Island surgeons explain that most people require a series of two to four injectable sessions to reach their optimal outcome. They encourage anyone self-conscious about a perceived double chin to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss whether KYBELLA™ can help them achieve their goal results.
