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.

"I absolutely loved my experience here! I would recommend Dr. Nikko to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. I visited for a breast augmentation consultation about 2 months ago and as soon as I walked in the door Dr. Nikko and his staff treated me like family not like I was just a number they were extremely nice, helpful and answered any and every question I had. Stephanie(office manager) and Samah helped through the consultation process and made me feel very comfortable and assured me I'm in good hands and everything would be fine. Dr. Nikko is very knowledgeable and professional he is completely honest with you during the consultation and let's you know what exactly needs to be done and why. Vannica is the nurse here and she is awesome! So nice and informative she let me know all I needed to know for my pre op appointment and my follow ups like what to expect, what to do etc. After my surgery that same night Dr. Nikki called to check if all was well, and that says a lot because from what I've heard researching other surgeons they don't call or leave you their number to call after hours if something is wrong, they either won't call at all or have someone from the staff call, but like I said this place treats you like family and actually cares about how you're doing ...all in all I'm sooooo glad I choose Dr. Nikko for my cosmetic procedure my incisions are healing beautifully! some of the scars are healing so well they are barely visible and it's only been 4 weeks! They have great scar creams to prevent scaring..What I love is how you get 7 free visits after surgery to follow up and make sure you're doing ok and everything is fine during the whole healing process. So they definitely deserve 5 stars if I could go any higher I would."- R.G. / Yelp / May 01, 2018
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.
