About Kybella

Just a little extra fat in the upper throat area can create the presence of a "double chin" that can be unwanted to both women and men. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (also known as 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. Board-certified otolaryngologist & head and neck surgeon Dr. Masoud Saman is proud to provide a revolutionary way to get rid of chin fat in the submental area at Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery in Plano, TX. Approved by the FDA, Kybella is a new nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it is injected under the chin, you can see a visible decrease in fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return, so you can enjoy your slimmer jawline for years to come.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidates for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats resistant pockets of fat that can't be reduced with normal weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the correct treatment for you. While Kybella can reduce small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical neck liposuction at Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery.

Procedure Technique

Kybella is performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Saman will usually apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, once the skin has been cleansed. The injection lasts around 15 minutes, which comprises of several small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may only need a single treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple injections spaced three weeks between each appointment at Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery.

What to Expect

Kybella doesn't need general anesthesia, so you are able to leave our office when you are ready to return to your normal routine. You may have short-term swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin, but this shouldn't last more than a few days. Contact Saman ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery right away if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated do not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should 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.
