Even a little extra fat in the upper neck area can cause the appearance of a "double chin" that can be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Our expert injector and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Reuel Aspacio, is pleased to offer a new way to eliminate neck fat at Summerlin Dermatology in Las Vegas, NV. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it is injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return, so you are able to enjoy your new, slim profile and strong jawline for years to come. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. That’s when its time to contact Dr. Aspacio. If you are looking for a nonsurgical alternative for getting rid of your double chin in the Las Vegas area, call Summerlin Dermatology to schedule your appointment.
The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can correct small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.

"My family & I have seen Dr. Aspacio for years! He's great! removed some Lipomas from my arm and did a great job. However it's tough only being able to remove 1-2 at a time. I have done some research on the Lipoma Removal and found that Dr.'s are now doing Lipoma Liposuction or limited suture removals. I currently have 10-20 lipomas in my right arm, 3 in my left arm, 1 on my left thigh and 1 on my lower back. I have read that doctors are now able to remove anywhere up to 20-30 lipomas in one sitting...I really hope this is something Dr. Aspacio can do or treat, because there is nobody I trust more!!"- J.S. / Yelp / Feb 15, 2019

Kybella is performed during an in-office appointment. Dr. Aspacio will often apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, after the skin has been cleansed. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Summerlin Dermatology.
What to Expect
Kybella doesn't require anesthesia, so you are able to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may have temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking tighter and sleeker and your profile will be more defined.
