Just a small amount of extra fat in the upper throat area may create the presence of a "double chin" that is unwanted. Women and men with additional pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) can be caused by genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for a less defined profile. Dallas, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Naveen Setty is pleased to provide Kybella (a revolutionary method to eliminate neck fat) at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics in McKinney, Dallas, and Allen, TX. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical procedure for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it's injected below the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells do not reform, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer neck and clear jawline for years to come.
The ideal candidates for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates unwanted fullness or a double chin. This injection addresses resistant sections of fat that will not be minimized with usual weight loss techniques or exercise. If you are at or near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the right procedure for your needs. While Kybella may reduce small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical neck liposuction at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics.

"I Got Exactly What I Wanted - Even Better Than I Hoped For! - Hi! I am 54 and had body tite to my abdomen and flanks with a fat transfer to my hands. During my consult I gave Dr. Setty input regarding my hopes for the outcome and he did a fabulous job! I can tell by my results that Dr. Setty took my input into consideration as he gave me exactly what I wanted! For example, I did not want to lose all of my hip curves, look boyish or have a concave..."- S. / RealSelf / Jul 29, 2018
"Dr. Setty is absolutely amazing. I was so nervous about my tummy tuck but once I showed up at the surgery center and Dr. Setty met with me before the surgery, he put me at complete ease. His calm approach and knowledge made me completely relax. I had my tummy tuck 10 weeks ago and the results are unbelievably wonderful. Way better than I even anticipated. I find myself looking in the mirror everyday in disbelief that this is actually my body after having 3 children. I am so happy! And the fact that Dr. Setty continues to meet with his patients post-op just to make sure everything is ok is an extra special touch. As a nurse, the extra follow-ups really stand out as something only a great surgeon would do. Thanks, Dr. Setty!!"- A.L. / Facebook / Jul 15, 2018

Kybella is completed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Setty will usually apply a numbing cream to the treated area if preferred, once the skin is cleansed. The injection lasts around 15 minutes, which comprises of multiple small injections into the upper neck area. Some patients may need only a single treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several injections spaced three weeks between each appointment at Setty Plastics & Aesthetics.
What to Expect
Kybella treatments do not need general anesthesia, so you can leave our office when you are ready to return to your usual routine. You may experience short-term swelling, bruising, or numbness beneath your chin; however, this shouldn't last more than 2 – 3 days. Contact Setty Plastics & Aesthetics right away if you are feeling any unusual symptoms, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger, so you must keep a stable weight after your Kybella treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing slimmer and tighter and your neckline will be better defined.
