Just a bit of extra fat in the upper neck area may cause the presence of a "double chin," which can be bothersome for both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a weaker chin and jawline for an undefined profile. Cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin are proud to offer a revolutionary way to eliminate neck fat at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that works similarly to the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not reform so you can enjoy your new, slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.
"Everyone at CSA is extremely friendly. The surgery went seamlessly. Their client services are excellent. I was given the doctor’s and nurse practitioner’s number to call or text if I had any concerns or questions. The response time for answering my texts was close to immediate. I have never been to a medical office with such wonderful employees."- L.T. / Google / Nov 07, 2022

Our Kybella Injection Technique
The best patients for KYBELLA injections have additional fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects resistant pockets of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to remove the fat in your neck, KYBELLA may be the best option for you. KYBELLA is completed during an in-office appointment. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin will often apply a numbing gel to the treated area once the skin has been cleaned. The procedure takes around 15 – 20 minutes, which comprises several small injections into the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to achieve their desired goal while some may require multiple injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates.
