Kybella is a nonsurgical neck liposuction injection that is approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Kybella, the first injection approved for fat reduction in the submental area, is made with deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that breaks down and absorbs fat for a visible improvement. Kybella is injected into the part of the neck under the chin (the submental area), and the gradual fat reduction eliminates the fullness that creates a "double chin." At InsideLookMD of Chicago, plastic surgeon Dr. Paresi offers this advanced new treatment to their Chicago area patients as an alternative to surgical neck liposuction. During the patient's initial consultation at his Downers Grove, IL office, Dr. Paresi will explain the differences between Kybella injections and neck surgery to help the patient determine which procedure is best for their cosmetic needs and goals.

"I Highly Recommend Dr. Paresi for any Facial Procedures as I have experienced two of his surgeries and been very pleased.. He is a very kind and caring doctor who really listens to what you are trying to achieve in doing the surgery that you are requested of him. He will talk you through everything in detail and is very professional. I had a partial face lift and did a full facial laser treatment and rhinoplasty surgery all at one time last year and went home feeling great and no pain meds needed at all. I would attribute that a lot to the special care of the doctor during the surgery and his wonderful staff as well. Everyone in the office makes your feel so comfortable and are always welcoming and warm. The day of the surgery if you have any fears they are there to calm you down and prepare you for surgery. Dr Paresi will come in and talk to you before the surgery and ask you if you have any concerns or questions before he starts the procedure and before you get the IV to be put under. . I then had another little procedure done this last week to just refine the tip of my nose and that went very well too. This time I just had alocal anesthesia and was fine with it. All good once again and very happy with the results both times! A Great Experience!"- M.R. / Google / Nov 06, 2017
"He is wonderful! Dr. Paresi is very personable and easy to talk with, which has made this such a comfortable experience. I sought him out after seeing how absolutely beautiful a friend, who was also patient, looked at a wedding we attended. I am so excited about my results now too, and have already referred a close friend. I wholeheartedly recommend him."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Nov 02, 2017

"Piece of Cake - Dr Paresi did my Tummy Tuck less than 2 months ago. Dr Paresi and his entire staff were wonderful from my first meeting, through the procedure and my follow-up visits. I was very worried about the pain and scarring.....piece of CAKE. The first couple of days were uncomfortable, but walking around and working hard to stand up straight helped with soreness. My only regret is that I..."- P. / RealSelf / Oct 12, 2017

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs
Once the Kybella treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
Kybella has been approved by the FDA, scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with Kybella. Patients should disclose their full medical history to their Doctor during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. Kybella is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
Kybella Vs. Liposuction?
Kybella neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Our Doctors will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
