Are you troubled by a double chin? This fullness beneath the chin is caused by the accumulation of fatty tissue. It can be due to aging, genetics or weight gain. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise the fullness just won’t go away. Your not alone. Over 60% of people are bothered by this appearance. In the past the only treatment alternatives were liposuction or plastic surgery. Now there is Kybella.
It is the first FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment to improve the appearance of a double chin. The product is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat in our diet. When injected in the fatty tissue in the double chin, it causes permanent destruction of these fat cells. Once destroyed these cells cannot accumulate or store more fat. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes in the office and is customized to each patient. Most people can resume their normal activities but side effects might include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness in the treated area. Because of this, keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling a treatment. Most patients require from 2-3 treatments.

I had interviewed several doctors and my decision to have Dr Berris MD provide my surgical procedures was by far my best possible choice. And thank you so very much to his staff.
From first appointment for evaluation, staff getting authorization for upper eyelid surgery and forehead lift, and then to surgery, all staff were so helpful, courteous, and caring. I would refer others to Dr. Craig Berris.
