Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area will create the presence of a double chin that may be unwanted to both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for a less defined profile. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters is happy to provide a revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Dr. Jules Walters. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate, so you can enjoy your new, slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.
The ideal candidates for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight but exercise and diet have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the correct option for your goals. While Kybella can be used to correct small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, significant pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical neck liposuction at Dr. Jules Walters.

Kybella is done during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Walters will often apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, once the skin is clean. The injection lasts around 15 minutes, which consists of a few small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look, while some may want a few injections spaced several weeks between each appointment at Dr. Jules Walters.
What to Expect
Injections of Kybella don't need general anesthesia, so you are allowed to leave our office when you are ready to return to your daily routine. You may notice short-term bruising, swelling, or numbness below your chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Contact Dr. Jules Walters right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated do not regenerate, the cells left over can grow larger, so you need to 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 tighter and sleeker, and your neckline will be better defined.
