Even a little extra fat in the upper neck area can cause the appearance of a "double chin" that can be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Dallas, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz is proud to offer a new way to get rid of neck fat at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it is injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in fat. Fat cannot return once destroyed, so you can enjoy your new, slim profile and strong jawline for years to come.
The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods and may be caused by genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can remove small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction at our practice.
"It's been a year since my surgery with Dr. Schwartz. The results are fabulous, and I love how my body looks! For the initial months, I had some hiccups with healing due to my own fault, but the Doc and staff took great care of me and seamlessly got me where I am today. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz for any cosmetic surgery/procedure! He makes your wishes come to fruition, with a natural touch.

Kybella is performed during an in-office appointment. Dr. Schwartz may apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, after the skin has been cleansed. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery.
What to Expect
Kybella doesn't require anesthesia, so you are able to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may have temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling under your chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells destroyed by Kybella do not return, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and slimmer and your profile will be more defined.
