)-- Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa will be the first medical spa and cosmetic surgery center in Illinois to offer Kythera Biopharmaceutical Inc.’s injectable drug, Kybella, a solution that destroys adult submental fat. Currently, the only options for fat removal in the double-chin area or neck area are liposuction - until now.
The Kythera Biopharmaceutical drug named, Kybella, is identical to deoxycholic acid - a solution that aids the body to absorb fats that are naturally produced by the body, according to the FDA. Kybella is an injection administered into the fat tissue in the submental area (under the chin) and works to destroy fat cells. As of right now, Kybella is only FDA approved for the submental area. This is a big advancement in the cosmetic surgery industry.

Daniel Ritacca, President of Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa says, “I’m excited to offer this technology to my patients….I have met with thousands of patients with this concern – now I have a solution.”
The safety and efficacy of Kybella for treating adult submental fat were established in two clinical trials that enrolled over a thousand patients.
