what is Kybella?
Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area will create the presence of a "double chin" that may be unwanted by both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for a less defined profile. Wareham, MA board-certified physician Dr. Nada Zaknoun is happy to provide a revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Nadomi Medspa. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly to the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you can notice a visible decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate so you can enjoy your new slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.

am i a candidate for kybella?
The ideal candidates for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects resistant areas of fat that cannot be removed through common weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the correct option for your goals. While Kybella can be used to correct small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, significant pockets of fat may be better suited for an alternate procedure.
