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.
"Fantastic Experience with Dr. Setty and Staff - My experience with Dr. Setty was truly fantastic. From the first time I walked into his McKinney office for a consultation to my follow up appointments, everything has been quick and so easy. I’m a busy working mom, and I had researched surgeons extensively before my Mommy Makeover, but I still had tons of questions. Dr. Setty answered everyone of them, never rushed me or made me feel like j..."- J. / RealSelf / Oct 18, 2018
"35 year old mom of two, 5-7”, 145 lbs, getting 400 cc ideal implants - I’ve been thinking about getting implants for the past two years. My breasts have always been small but after breastfeeding 2 kids for a year each, they shriveled up. I consulted with 4 different surgeons and finally decided on Dr Naveen Setty in McKinney, TX. I am soooooo excited to finally be doing this although also a little nervous admittedly. Part of my motivation for going there w..."- N. / RealSelf / Nov 03, 2018
"Dr. Setty and his staff are incredible! Dr. Setty is very professional yet outgoing, friendly and caring. I've been a patient in his office for many years now and have always felt that each person in the office truly cares about me. Kelly is in the front office and always remembers me and has a compliment when I arrive. Giovanna is Dr. Settys nurse and her outgoing personality and happy demeanor is infectious. She truly makes you feel so comfortable being there. Jess, the surgery coordinator, always says hello and never minds if I call with questions. You simply can't go wrong choosing Dr. Setty as your Doctor with any procedure you decide on!"- S.A. / Yelp / Nov 01, 2018

"After 2 children by c-sections, and 3 back surgeries which required entrance through my abdomen my body was no longer what it was beforehand. For 19 years I looked in the mirror on a DAILY basis and absolutely hated what I saw without clothes on. I would not undress in front of my husband and would go out of my way to make sure the lights were off or I was in a locked room so none would walk in on me and see the front of me. I researched procedures and surgeons at least once a week wanting to make sure that when I did this that it would be exactly what I wanted by only the best. I knew I wanted breast implants, Lipo on my back and sides, a tummy tuck, and a few skin tags removed. From the moment I scheduled my consult I was put at ease, Nichole who scheduled my consult was extremely nice and helpful yet very professional. Kelly immediately acknowledges you when you walk into the office and has the kindest and sweetest personality. Giovanna is there with you thru every single step from start to end and leaves nothing out or unanswered. Jessica was extremely discreet and was very informative if I had needed financial help. Dr. Settys himself is a truly amazing artist, and life changer. I call him my angel in disguise. He makes you feel the most comfortable you have ever felt around anyone without clothes on. No question or concern is unacceptable. He listens to you and what you want and gives you exactly that plus more. My body did not look this amazing even before my first pregnancy. The day of my procedure which was at Craig Ranch surgery Center (which by the way is a extremely nice facility with amazing people which is important to me) Dr. Setty came in and talked me to make sure that I was at ease before my procedure. The anesthesiologist that Dr. Setty uses calls you the night before which I’ve never had done and that was a huge deal for me, who also comes into to talk to you before he puts you under so you are at ease from that side. When I awoke from my procedure (I don’t recall much of it) my husband said I was never left unattended or in pain at any given time. I arrived home late that night and began to rest and the next morning Dr. Setty called me to check on me. Once again something I have never experience with any of my Dr’s in the past. I had a question one night at 10:30pm about my belly button and Dr. Setty called me back within 2 minutes literally. I was blown away by how you are catered to. This entire experience (I am now 6 weeks out) is beyond words the kindness, care, and professionalism Dr. Setty and his entire staff give you from the moment you schedule your appointment and long after your procedure is finished. I also have had by Nichole at his Dallas Location which is his med spa office coolsculpting on my neck, laser hair removal on my face and microneedling on my face as well from years of not taking care of my skin and that location is amazing as well. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Setty and his staff which I consider my family for giving me back my body and most important my life."- D.L. / Google / Oct 27, 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.
