Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper neck area will cause the appearance of a "double chin" that is bothersome to both men and women. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (the submental area) may be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a softer chin and jawline for a less defined profile. Our provider, Dr. Hope Short, is happy to provide a revolutionary technique to get rid of neck fat at Oak Hills Med Spa. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical procedure for submental fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that works similarly to the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it's injected below the chin, you may see a visible reduction in fat. When the fat is removed, the cells cannot regenerate so you are able to enjoy your new, slimmer profile and defined jawline for years to come. Schedule a consultation at our Tyler, TX practice to find out if KYBELLA is right for you.

What Are the Benefits of KYBELLA?

Many people have a hard time loving their face and chin. KYBELLA injections at our Tyler, TX practice can help create a jawline you feel comfortable about, plus other advantages such as:

  • Hardly any downtime following treatment
  • Noninvasive alternative to surgical procedures
  • Brief appointments that coincide with your packed calendar
  • Quick results that offer you the chin appearance you've always desired

The ideal patients for KYBELLA treatments have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), creating a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection treats resistant pockets of fat that can't be minimized with usual weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to eliminate the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the right option. While KYBELLA can address small or moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, more significant amounts of fat may be better suited for surgical liposuction at Oak Hills Med Spa in Tyler, TX.

What to Expect from KYBELLA

KYBELLA doesn't require anesthesia so you are able to leave the office as soon as you are ready to return to your normal activities. You may have short-term swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin, although this should not last more than a few days. Call Oak Hills Med Spa immediately if you are noticing any unusual side effects, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the remaining cells can get larger so you must maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA injections to keep new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this procedure leave your neck appearing sleeker and tighter, and your neckline will be better defined.

Love this staff! Always an easy experience! Highly recommend Corey for injections!

About Us
How much does KYBELLA cost?

KYBELLA treatment costs will vary based on how many appointments you need. In your consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to work with your budget and goals. A member of our staff will also talk about the payments we accept in your consultation.

How does KYBELLA work?

Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in KYBELLA, is designed to break down fat cells in the submental area. After they are eliminated, these fat cells cannot grow back. Therefore, more KYBELLA injections shouldn't be needed as soon as you have finished.

Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas of the body?

Right now, KYBELLA can only be used to treat the upper neck. KYBELLA can effectively minimize the fat in the upper neck that creates the appearance of a double chin. KYBELLA hasn't been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for use on any other areas of the body.

Am I eligible for a KYBELLA treatment?

Before your consultation, you will answer a few questions to make sure you are a candidate for KYBELLA treatments. You must be over the age of 18, not pregnant or breastfeeding, and you should not have an active infection at the treatment site. Before the process begins, you are encouraged to be open about any health concerns and your medical history with your injector so they can decide if you can safely receive the treatment.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

In your consultation, a personalized KYBELLA treatment plan will be developed to meet your desired results. Usually, patients receive between two and four KYBELLA injections to achieve their goals. KYBELLA injections must also be spaced around one month apart. You shouldn't receive any more than six treatments.
