We all know that both men and women desire a well-defined jawline. Not long ago, liposuction was one of the only options for treating a double chin (submental fat). Then came the breakthrough, non-surgical procedure, Kybella. Time and time again, Kybella proves to be the #1 injection for double-chin treatment.
Why Kybella Injections?
Since the FDA approval in 2015, Kybella has been Houston's favorite way to treat submental fat. Recent Kybella studies have shown that it is safe and effective. Data from the same study says that 82.4% of recipients felt like their appearance had improved.
Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that breaks down fat cells. After the fat cells die, the body then breaks them down with its natural disposal system. Kybella injections, being a non-surgical procedure, boasts a short recovery time. While Kybella injections may have minor effects, they usually subside within a few weeks.
Who Qualifies for Kybella Injections?
Adults with moderate to severe amounts of submental fat are ideal Kybella injection candidates. Disqualifying factors include:
If you have difficulty swallowing
If you are pregnant, or nursing
Have chin or neck related medical issues
If you qualify for Kybella injections, TOPS’ highly-qualified staff members will build out a treatment plan, designed specifically for your needs. TOPS staff will inquire about your medical history, including any past cosmetic procedures to make sure that the procedure is done safely and without side effects.

What procedures are often performed with Kybella?
Kybella injections work best with other complimenting procedures at The Oaks Plastic Surgery. Kybella injections give you a sculpted chin but don't tighten skin or eliminate wrinkles. That is why many patients will opt for Botox as well.
Since Kybella injections are not suggested for combating fat on other areas of the body, the Oaks Plastic Surgery often performs liposuction for fat around the body. For fat around the face, TOPS surgeons perform Buccal fat removal.
