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.
"Liposuction - I had facetite and laser resurfacing around my eyes and on my upper lip. My neck was really bothering me with all the loose skin and facetite tightened my neck area enormously. I thought my only recourse was a neck lift. I can put this off for a couple of years because of my results. Also, I am very pleased with the results of the laser resurfacing-no crows feet and my upper lip looks much better-the lines are not as deep."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / May 08, 2019
"Tummy Tuck - Dr. Setty followed up with me the same day of my surgery, and answered all of my questions. I was very nervous, but Dr. Setty did a wonderful job on my tummy tuck. My scars are already healing after two months, and I was able to walk straight after three weeks. I had a full release to work out after eight weeks. I feel wonderful, look wonderful, and feel very confident. Dr. Setty is very attentive to all of his patients needs, and so is his wonderful staff!"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 22, 2019
"Breast Augmentation - I am highly satisfied with my breast augmentation because the whole experience, from first consultation to post care treatments is going as expected per Dr. Setty. I felt Dr. Setty took extra care to listen to exactly what I was looking for in size and he also asked for pictures of what I wish or may expect to look like after the procedure. The size is perfect and I feel greatly satisfied!"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 19, 2019
"Breast Reduction - My results are better than I imagined and Dr. Setty and his team treated me with much kindness and answered any questions I had with urgency. I had a consultation years ago with another doctor who made comments that made me feel uneasy. Dr. Setty’s spirit and professionalism put me at ease and made me feel extremely comfortable."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 10, 2019
"Mommy Makeover - Everyone in Dr. Setty’s office has been wonderful. From my first visit I felt very comfortable and informed. I am thrilled with my results. My results are above and beyond what I was hoping to achieve."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Apr 09, 2019
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.
