Kybella Ideal Candidates
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 Dallas and McKinney, 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.
Kybella Procedure Technique
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.
"Unbelievable. I was absolutely shocked by the staff's professionalism and hospitality. KATE is as beautiful as she is talented. I highly reccomend her for the hydrofacial; my skin has never felt so clean!"- K.C. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
"I stumbled upon Setty's page on Groupon about a year ago and I'm glad I did. I knew my tolerance for pain and was of course very nervous at first considering I've never explored laser hair removal before that point. When I met Autumn, my life changed forever!!! She couldn't have made me feel MORE comfortable & understanding of my insecurities. I was a first timer so pain level & nakedness were my top 2 worries. Autumn's bubbly, funny, and relatable personality put me at ease right away! She even let me treat with the lights off to make me feel more comfortable. :) Now I come in to the office with confidence, ready to breeze through the treatment. I started with a Brazilian, then added arms & underarms, with legs coming up next, I cant seem to stop! Autumn gives great advice and tips on upkeep. Yeah, Setty's not the cheapest, but they do have utilize cryogenic equipment (so it's every bit of worth it in my eyes). Keep up the amazing work Autumn, I love ya!!!!"- S.M. / Yelp / Apr 22, 2020

"Mommy Makeover - Dr. Setty and his crew made me feel very comfortable during the first consultation till after my surgery. The surgery has given me confidence back in my body that I have been lacking since my first baby was born, 13 years ago! I have abs again!"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Mar 30, 2020
"I have been coming here for about 5 years now and I absolutely love it! I have been with Autumn for all those years and I have to say she is AMAZING! She truly cares about her patients and takes time to connect with them! She makes me feel so comfortable, I came in as a patient and have gained a new friend! I would recommend Autumn in a heartbeat!"- C.A. / Yelp / Mar 18, 2020
Reduce Neck Fat Today
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 with Kybella®
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.
