About KYBELLA for MEn
Just a small amount of extra fat in the upper neck area can cause the appearance of a double chin. The additional pockets of fat beneath the chin (or the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for an undefined profile. Leading dermatologist Dr. Melissa Chiang and seasoned plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho are proud to provide a revolutionary way to eliminate neck fat at Chiseled in The Woodlands, TX. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is a new nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which acts similarly to the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it's injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable decrease in fat. When the fat is eliminated, those cells do not regenerate, so you can enjoy your new, slender profile and stronger jawline for years to come.
Candidates for kybella
The best candidates for KYBELLA injections are men who have additional fat in their upper neck (submental area) that creates a double chin or unwanted volume. This injection treats resistant sections of fat that cannot be reduced with common weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you're near a healthy weight but exercise and diet have not been able to reduce the fat in your submental area, then KYBELLA may be an ideal option for your goals. While KYBELLA is used to treat small or moderate amounts of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may require liposuction at Chiseled.
"Best Experience - Dr. Cho is a warm, caring doctor who made me feel at ease immediately. He said that I was a good candidate for the Kybella procedure and I love my results. His staff is also very caring and professional. Dr. Cho takes as much time as needed to explain the procedure and what to expect. He and his staff are the abosulute best. I will be going back for more treatments of Kybella and other..."- D. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2017
"Kybella for Double Chin - Spring, TX - I'm loving my results from my first Kybella treatment. I had been hearing a lot about Kybella on the news a different talk shows over the summer, and it really sparked my interest. My little chin blubber has always been a trouble area for me. I feel like since I've turned 30 it's been worse. It was all I saw in photos of me. I am so glad I decide to have this treatment done. It was explained in my consultation that I might need several treatments to reach my goal. I've only had one so far and I am loving it. Even my friends have asked if I've lost weight. I was very comfortable throughout the injections, but I was a little sore and very swollen right after. It was all worth it. I still need another treatment or two, but I can already see significant results. This stuff really works."- R. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2016

I have also had Botox around the eyes and Silk on the lips in subsequent trips."- P. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2017
KYBELLA takes place during an in-office appointment at Chiseled in The Woodlands, TX. Dr. Chiang or Dr. Cho can apply a numbing cream to the injection site, if requested, after cleansing your skin. The treatment, which usually takes about 10 – 30 minutes, consists of multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need a single treatment to reach their desired goal, while others may require a few treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Chiseled.
after your session
Injections of KYBELLA don't require anesthesia, so you can leave our office as soon as you're ready to return to your usual routine. You may have temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness below your chin; however, these symptoms shouldn't last more than a couple of days. Call Chiseled immediately if you experience any unusual symptoms, including facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or asymmetrical facial expressions. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the remaining cells can grow larger, so you need to maintain a steady weight after your KYBELLA injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results will reveal a sleeker and tighter-looking neckline.
How does KYBELLA compare to other injections?
Cosmetic injections come in a wide range of formulas to address different concerns. KYBELLA is made from synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring element that helps with the breakdown of unwanted fat. Other products are designed to fill in sunken areas and lines. In your consultation at Chiseled, we can explain your options and recommend which one is correct for you.
Are KYBELLA injections painful?
KYBELLA patients may feel a little sting once the formula is injected into the skin. Dr. Cho could provide a numbing agent or other ways to make your appointment more comfortable. While some discomfort is expected, most of our patients agree that it's tolerable, and there is no need to worry.
Will the fat come back?
Once KYBELLA is injected, fat under the chin shouldn't return. Once the fat cells are removed, they're gone for good. However, patients should maintain a steady weight with diet and exercise if they want to maintain their KYBELLA results long-term.
