Even a little extra fat in the upper neck area can cause the appearance of a "double chin" that can be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Dallas, TX plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz is proud to offer a new way to get rid of neck fat at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid that acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it is injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in fat. Fat cannot return once destroyed, so you can enjoy your new, slim profile and strong jawline for years to come.
The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods and may be caused by genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can remove small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction at our practice.
"I had the best experience working with Dr. Schwartz and his beautiful staff! I went in for my second breast augmentation to have my saline implants of 13 years removed and replaced with silicone. Upon meeting Dr. Schwartz, I knew immediately my search was over. He walked me through everything in detail, Listened to every question I had and truly wanted me to have the best experience and what I wanted within reason. From the moment I set foot in his surgery center the day of my surgery, I was greeted with smiles and I felt so comfortable, the nurses, Dr. Chang his anesthesiologist, PCD Laura, all of them, I knew I was in good hands! They look amazing now and I love them! Thank you Dr. Schwartz!"- Anonymous / RealSelf / Jul 03, 2019
"I've always had an AMAZING experience at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and everyone!Let's start with Cristy which is who introduced me to Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery. Cristy is a genius and just like Dr. Schwartz her meticulous attention to detail is exactly what you want, in your licensed medical professional. When I first started to see Cristy I immediately saw a difference in how I was treated as a patient. Instead of being rushed in and out like I had been at previous places, Cristy took her time to understand both my concerns, and what look I was going for. I've been seeing Cristy for over two years and each time I go she always ensures I'm happy with the results. Aside from filler Cristy has also taken care of my botox needs. I've had botox injected into my masseter to help my TMJ, my forehead, and I've had a brow lift! I've always had an amazing experience with Cristy and I'm just so impressed with how talented she is! Now let me tell you about my experience with Dr. Robert Schwartz. Back in November 2019 I had a consultation with Dr. Schwartz and the second I left his office I knew I would pick him to perform my surgery. My consultation lasted over two hours, he went into detail about every step of the procedure, answered every single question I had, and made sure I fully knew what to expect before, during and after surgery. This really stood out to me since other consultations at best lasted 20 minutes. Not only was he wonderful and personable but Laura and Anna were both extremely sweet and helpful throughout the entire process! On January 17th I had my surgery I could not be happier with my results so far!!"- S.C. / Google / Feb 19, 2020
"Dr. Schwartz and his staff top notch! I've been a client of his since 2008. Trust him 100%. He listens and hears you!"- B.C. / Google / Feb 18, 2020
"I considered a few different surgeons for my breast augmentation, but Dr. Schwartz was amazing! He explained everything, and his staff made me feel comfortable and kept me well-informed of the entire procedure. My surgery was comfortable and recovery was relatively easy, and I LOVE the results! I'm now about 6 months post-op, and my new breasts look and feel like ME. They don't look or feel "fake" - half the time I forget that I even have them! It's like he made me look like I should have looked all along. He was able to translate what I wanted to look like into what I actually look like now. I love it!"- H.A. / Google / Feb 18, 2020
"I have trusted Dr. Schwartz to care for me twice, after considering the procedure for several years before deciding to proceed. After my first surgery, I was feeling disappointed with my outcome, and it took some time for me to come to terms with this, and share my feelings and concerns with Dr. Schwartz. After having some very candid discussions about what could be done to improve the results, Dr. Schwartz revised the results and I'm 100% happy with the outcome now. He was very patient and supportive throughout the process, and so was his office staff. I'm very glad I trusted him to help me achieve what I was hoping for, because I got a great result and I can recommend him to others. Make sure you keep the lines of communication open throughout your pre- and post-op journey, and know that if you aren't feeling delighted with your outcome, you can have that conversation and get to a great result!"- E.S. / Google / Feb 18, 2020
Kybella is performed during an in-office appointment. Dr. Schwartz may apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, after the skin has been cleansed. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery.
What to Expect
Kybella doesn't require anesthesia, so you are able to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may have temporary numbness, bruising, or swelling under your chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells destroyed by Kybella do not return, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and slimmer and your profile will be more defined.
