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 that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Led by board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Thornwell Parker and Dr. Kevin Hanz, our team is pleased to offer a new method to eliminate neck fat at Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery in Dallas, TX. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is an innovative nonsurgical procedure for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid that works like the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat. Once it's injected below the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in the volume of fat. Once the fat is eliminated, it should not re-form, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer profile and clear jawline.
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 other 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 correct small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.

"Love this place for Botox, dysport and IPL photofacialS. Tori is the best, she listens to what you want and explains everything and I have been very happy with the results of my treatments since my girlfriend referred her to me several months ago. The friends I have sent have also been happy with their results."- K.H. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2018
"Can't say enough about how professional and comfortable this Med Spa is in comparison to some of the other popular locations in town (which I've tried). Elevate feels less like a cattle call and more like a one on one experience. Suzanne is phenomenal for brows and facials- very kind and has your best interests at heart. I've seen Tori as well for photo facials and a few other minor treatments. Both are kind, very informed and the office is efficiently run. Avoid all the other Med spas that advertise like crazy. This place is sophisticated yet comfortable. Employees have a high attention to detail and it is very competitive when it comes to pricing."- T.S. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2018

Kybella injections are completed during an in-office appointment. We often apply a numbing cream to the treated area, if preferred, 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 bruising, swelling, or numbness beneath the chin. Call Elevate Medical Spa immediately if you are feeling any unusual side effects. While the fat cells eliminated by Kybella do not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger, so patients must maintain a steady weight after their Kybella injections to prevent existing fat from growing. This principle holds true for almost any type of fat treatment, including liposuction or CoolSculpting. The results following this treatment leave your neck looking slimmer, tighter, and sleeker and your profile will be more defined.
