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 (also known as 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 surgeon Dr. Thornwell Parker, 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 reform 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.

"I love this place! I haven’t been here since Covid hit over 13 months ago and they were just as friendly as ever! Tori knows her stuff and I’ve always trusted their advice and knowledge of procedures."- J.Z. / Yelp / Apr 14, 2021
"These are my GIRLS!!! I could not say enough good things about Elevate. The experience is wonderful from the second you step foot in the lobby - they have a very serene and beautifully decorated waiting room with calming music. The women at the front desk are outstanding - so positive and welcoming every time. Tori is a wizard, I have been seeing her for Botox and microneedling. She has also been an amazing and honest consultant for other treatments I'm interested in. She won't hesitate to tell me when I don't need something, which is so refreshing when it comes to getting cosmetic treatments in Dallas. The culture is usually the opposite and geared towards getting you to spend more money. You'll never feel this kind of pressure at Elevate, they take a conservative approach and genuinely care about the results. I'll never go anywhere else."- S.G. / Google / Mar 03, 2021
"Normally I would be afraid to utilize a service like this as a man, but in this instance my experience was nothing but the best. I didn’t feel like I was a person going through a factory to get basic services but rather someone but the nurse practitioner took time and gave great suggestions of short, mood, and long-term improvements I could go to my health. Tori did a great job and I highly recommend this experience."- M.A. / Yelp / Dec 29, 2020
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.
