Kybella® – Nonsurgical Neck Liposuction – Plano, TX*

Procedures ( View All )

Overview

The “double chin” is a universally dreaded sign of genetics, weight gain, and aging. Until recently, liposuction, among other invasive procedures, was considered the go-to treatment for men and women wishing to achieve a more contoured and defined chin. However, the injectable medication, Kybella, can be used in lieu of these invasive measures to reduce the fat beneath the chin to help a patient achieve a slimmer neck and profile. Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, injects Kybella in the fat under the chin to reduce the fat cells to prevent the fat from accumulating in the future. Its main ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is naturally found in the body, and is safely used to breakdown the fat cells. In order to achieve the best results, more than 1 treatment is needed. 

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for Kybella:

  • Have moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, which gives the appearance of a double chin
  • Desire a nonsurgical approach for fat reduction
  • Desire long-term results
  • Desire natural-looking results

What to Expect

A number of small injections will be made in the fat under the chin during this outpatient procedure. If pain or discomfort will be an issue, a local numbing agent can be administered prior to a Kybella treatment. The treatment typically lasts around 15 – 20 minutes. Since 2 – 6 treatments are usually needed, they will be spaced out about a month apart. 

Anticipated Results

After Kybella, there is no downtime, but patients might experience mild pain, swelling, bruising, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the injection site. These side effects could last 2 – 3 days. Some patients may notice a reduction of fat after just a single treatment, but most patients will notice improvements after 2 or 3 treatments.
