Even a small amount of excess fat in the upper neck area may create the presence of a "double chin" that is unwanted to both women and men. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for an undefined profile. We are pleased to provide a revolutionary method to eliminate neck fat at TruDerm in Allen and Plano, TX. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical procedure for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it's injected into the fat below the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. After the fat cells are eliminated, they do not re-form, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer neck and clear jawline.
Ideal candidates for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper neck (submental area), which creates an unwanted fullness or a double chin appearance. The unique formula of Kybella specifically targets resistant sections of fat that can't be minimized with the usual weight loss methods. If you are at or near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the best procedure for your needs. While Kybella may treat small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better treated with surgical liposuction.

"Dr. Adler is the only dermatologist I trust. Before seeing him I had cystic acne that had gotten worse from a prescription that my previous dermatologist had ordered me and I was basically told to get over it, I then found Dr. Adler and he listened to my concerns and completely changed my acne regiment which cleared my skin up in a matter of months. I highly recommend seeing him."- A.N. / Google / Dec 06, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
At the beginning of your Kybella treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied to the desired area, if preferred. The procedure usually takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may need a single treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several injections spaced 3 – 4 weeks between each appointment.
What to Expect
Since Kybella doesn't need general anesthesia, patients can leave our office when they are ready to return to their usual routine. Patients may experience short-term swelling, numbness, or bruising beneath the chin; however, this shouldn't last more than 2 – 3 days. Contact TruDerm right away if you are feeling any unusual symptoms like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat eliminated by Kybella cannot regenerate, the fat cells that remain can get larger, so patients must keep a stable weight after their Kybella treatments to avoid new pockets of fat from developing. The results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and slimmer.
