Even a little excess 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 genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations, but it weakens the chin and jawbone for a less-defined profile. 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 that acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. When it is injected into the fat under the chin, patients see a noticeable reduction in fat. We are here to assist you if you are looking for Kybella treatments in Houston, TX. Feel free to contact us for consulting. Once the fat is destroyed, it cannot return, so patients are able to enjoy their new, slim profile and strong jawline.

Plan Your Procedure
Kybella injections are performed during an in-office appointment. We usually apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area after the skin has been cleansed. The treatment 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.
What to Expect
Since Kybella does not require anesthesia, patients are able to leave the office as soon as they feel comfortable to resume their normal activities. Patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call our office immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells destroyed by Kybella cannot return, the remaining fat cells can become larger, so patients should maintain a steady weight after their Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming in other areas of their body. The results following this treatment leaves your neck looking slimmer and tighter, and your profile will be more defined with significant improvement.
