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.
Kybella Ideal Candidates
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 The Creme De La Creme - I had a Mommy Makeover (extended tummy tuck and breast lift w/ fat transfer) with Dr. Jules Walters on October 24, 2018. Dr. Walters has truly been an amazing doctor. He’s patient, kind, listens to your questions and concerns and gives you his honest, professional opinion on what he thinks will give you the best outcome and most satisfying results for you personally. I am 2 weeks out from s..."- C. / RealSelf / Nov 07, 2018
"I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Walters in September and had an amazing experience! I went to a few consultations before choosing him as my plastic surgeon and he was by far the most thorough, easy to talk to, and overall I just felt very comfortable with him. I went in with an idea of what I wanted but I took his advice on what he thought was best for me (he is a true perfectionist). My results are amazing and I am completely satisfied. I had my procedure on a Friday morning and went back to work the following Monday with very minimal pain and absolutely no bruising (and I bruise quite easily). He truly has gifted hands and he is so nice! I will be coming back to him for all my plastic surgery needs!"- L.R. / Google / Mar 13, 2020

"Dr. Walters performed liposuction of the calves, ankles, interior and exterior thighs, and fat transfer. I was extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Walters and his staff were available to answer any questions that I had. I would highly recommend Dr. Walters to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon."- S.B. / Google / Dec 25, 2019
"BBL & lipo: Dr Walters was very kind af professional - Ever since I was a teenager I could never properly pants, my upper body Is like a medium lower body more an xl. I used to cry in front of my closet feeling fat and upset. So now at the age 28 after so many years of not feeling comfy in shorts dresses and skirts, I've finally made the decision to pursue lipo and while at it transfer some fat to my upper buttocks. My surgery happened 2 days ago and it's honestly a tough recovery so far. I did my surgery in New Orleans which is where I live. I realized going abroad and thinking I'd save money wasn't true. I got to go home the same day in my comfortable space with the people I love taking care of me. So far I'm pretty swollen so I know it will take a while before seeing permanent results. Dr Walters was very kind af professional, very quick in response over text for the few additional questions I had. The nurses were sweet, on the way home, we got hit by a car, thank god my husband and I are both safe. But it was traumatizing having to deal with that while still being gone on anesthesia. The first night I woke up to pee like 5 times and I could make it to the bathroom alone. I had to vomit each time I would move around even with the nausea pills and the patch behind my ear. But today I got to shower and take off my pads. I slept a lot and tried to eat a bit more. Hopefully each day will be a bit better! The pictures in red outfit are my before pictures."- N. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019
Kybella Procedure Technique
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 with Kybella
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.
