VERO BEACH, Fla., July 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, the first and only FDA-approved injectable that contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, also called "double chin," is now available in Vero Beach, Florida. Submental fullness is a common condition that is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics and weight gain.
"We are excited to be the first cosmetic plastic surgery office in Vero Beach to be able to offer KYBELLA™ to patients. Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable therapy that targets and removes neck fat without surgery, anesthesia, or external scarring," says Dr. Alan Durkin.
Each in-office treatment with KYBELLA™ is typically 15-20 minutes. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected.
With this nonsurgical treatment, many patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Treatment with KYBELLA™ is customized by Dr. Alan Durkin to the patient's aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.

KYBELLA™ is the first and only approved injectable drug for contouring moderate to severe submental fullness, also called double chin. KYBELLA™ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
