Just a bit of extra fat in the upper throat area will create the presence of a double chin that may be unwanted to both women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for a less defined profile. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters is happy to provide a revolutionary technique to reduce neck fat at Walters Plastic Surgery. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical option for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetically made version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the amount of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not regenerate, so you can enjoy your new, slender neck and defined jawline for years to come.
The ideal candidates for Kybella injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection corrects resistant areas of fat that can't be removed with common weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are near a healthy, stable weight but exercise and diet have not been able to eliminate the fat in your submental area, Kybella may be the correct option for your goals. While Kybella can be used to correct small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, significant pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical neck liposuction at Walters Plastic Surgery.

"Dr Walters is an amazing plastic surgeon. I got a BBL with liposuction and my results are fantastic. It looks so natural. Could not be more happier. If you're looking for a surgeon for the BBL, he is your guy."- A. / Healthgrades / Nov 13, 2018
"Dr. Walters changed my life. I spent the better part of my adulthood too self conscious about my body to wear a tshirt or even go outside at times. I finally decided to make the decision to better myself and life. I could not have made a better choice. The professionalism and skills Dr. Walters and his staff possess are 2nd to none. I couldn't be happier. Thank you!!!"- M.F. / Healthgrades / Oct 18, 2018
"My overall experience with Dr. Walters was nothing short of perfect and professional. I was born with 3 nipples which is not entirely uncommon, however, mine had accessory breast tissue underneath which over time became an issue as the tissue would swell and become sore, especially while I was on my period. Because of his expertise in placement, the scar is virtually invisible. For the first time in my life, I love my breasts and could not be happier with the results!"- A. / Healthgrades / Oct 18, 2018
Kybella is done during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Walters will often apply a numbing gel to the injected area, if desired, once the skin is clean. The injection lasts around 15 minutes, which consists of a few small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may require a single treatment to get to their desired look, while some may want a few injections spaced several weeks between each appointment at Walters Plastic Surgery.
What to Expect
Injections of Kybella don't need general anesthesia, so you are allowed to leave our office when you are ready to return to your daily routine. You may notice short-term bruising, swelling, or numbness below your chin, although this shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Contact Walters Plastic Surgery right away if you are noticing any unusual symptoms, including difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated do not regenerate, the cells left over can grow larger, so you need to keep a stable weight after your Kybella treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and sleeker, and your neckline will be better defined.
