Aspen, Colo. – At the 2017 edition of The Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), attendees learned about the composition of the submental area during the cadaver dissection session.
Dissector David Sieber, M.D., said the submental area is relatively straightforward. “There are 3 main areas of the neck as it relates to Kybella. These are the skin, the submental fat and the platysma muscle. Directly beneath the skin is the submental fat, which is the target for Kybella. Deep to the platysma lie additional structures of the neck including the marginal mandibular nerve and submandibular glands. The marginal mandibular nerve can have a more variable course laterally, at times going beneath the mandibular border. Injections of the central neck are relatively safe because the nerve is above the mandibular border.” Dr. Sieber is a San Francisco-based plastic surgeon in private practice.
