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.
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.

"Breast Augmentation - Dr. Setty and staff are informative and compassionate. I felt very comfortable and respected the whole time. Due to some life challenges that came up shortly after the consultation, I will not be able to do the surgery for awhile but plan to do it with Dr. Setty early 2023."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Jun 21, 2022
"I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience and results at Setty Plastics and Aesthetics. I have had several Clear and Brilliant treatments. The overall appearance of my skin is improved, and my favorite part is that the deep wrinkle between my eyebrows is pretty much nonexistent. It used to be the first thing I would notice about myself in pictures and when I looked in the mirror. I have also had 2 treatments of Morpheus 8. My main goal was to tighten the loose skin on my neck (under my chin). Amazing is all I can say about this! I also had this treatment on my face, where I saw an overall tightening as well. My favorite part of this treatment, other than my neck, was the tightening around my eyes. The staff is very friendly, and Autumn, who has performed these treatments on me, is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain the benefits as well as what to expect during and after the procedure. Highly recommend!"- D.R. / Google / Jun 08, 2022

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.
