Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko is pleased to offer a new method to significantly reduce neck fat. Even a small amount of excess fat in the upper neck area may cause the appearance of a "double chin" that is bothersome to both men and women. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) may be caused by genetics, aging, or weight fluctuations, but it weakens the chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical procedure for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that works like the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat. Once it's injected into the fat below the chin, patients may see a noticeable reduction in the volume of fat. Once the fat is eliminated, it does not re-form, so patients can enjoy their new, slimmer profile and clear jawline. Call or visit the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston, TX today to learn more about Kybella.
The best patients for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper neck (submental area) that is causing unwanted fullness or a double chin. Kybella addresses stubborn sections of fat that cannot be minimized with usual weight loss methods because it is created by genetics, aging, or more conditions. If you are at or near a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the right procedure for your needs. While Kybella may treat up to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.

Plan Your Procedure
Kybella injections are completed during an in-office appointment. We typically apply a numbing cream to the treated area after the skin is cleansed. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may need one treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart.
What to Expect
Since Kybella does not require general anesthesia, patients can leave the office as soon as they feel comfortable to resume their usual routine. Patients may experience temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising beneath the chin, however this should not last longer than 2 - 3 days. Call our office immediately if you feel any unusual side effects, like facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. It's important to note that, while the fat cells eliminated by Kybella cannot re-generate, the fat cells that remain can get larger. Therefore, patients must maintain a steady weight after their Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. The results following this treatment leaves your neck looking tighter and slimmer, and your profile will be more defined with significant improvement.
