Kybella is a revolutionary injectable that can transform a person's profile, creating a more youthful lower face appearance. Our aesthetic professionals at Genecov Plastic Surgery may recommend it to those who are looking to eliminate unwanted fat underneath their chin. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that shapes and defines the chin area to improve the appearance of the “double chin” effect. It contains the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, which is naturally occurring in the body for the breakdown and absorption of dietary fats. When injected into fat cells beneath the chin, Kybella destroys the cells, rendering them unable to accumulate or store fat any longer. Our Certified Nurse Injectors will work with each patient in deciding how many treatments are necessary to meet your needs and cosmetic goals. Patients can call our Dallas, TX office today to learn more about Kybella and how it can help them achieve the slim look they desire.
"I had pharyngeal flap surgery made by Dr. Genecov. I'm 32 years old and had been having hypernasal speech for the whole life - I was born with a cleft palate and had not the best surgery when I was a child. Even though it wasn't an easy task to fix it on an adult, Dr. Genecov did a great job, I already sound and feel better. His office staff is nice and professional, he treats his patients with care and kindness. I had to go to Dallas TX to have all of this done, but it did pay off.Highly recom"- V. / Healthgrades / Oct 26, 2018

"We have seen Dr Genecov probably for 8-9 years now, since we moved to Texas. You can truly see how much he cares about his patients, not once have I felt rushed or like he didn’t want to listen to my concerns. Dr Genecov and his crew are the best of THE BEST!"- W.S. / Facebook / Jul 14, 2020
"I LOVE DR. BARCELO! HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! He is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns/what you are trying to achieve with your visit. He is very realistic and conservative when it comes to injectables, and I have never been unhappy with any of my results! He has been doing my botox for years, and I never have a wrinkle afterwards. He also just did my lips for the first time, I was very nervous as we have all seen women who definitely went overboard. He achieved exactly what I was hoping for and I could not be happier! It is not even noticeable to those who don't know me, but it has made a huge difference for me! I can finally wear lipstick and it not be all over my face, lol. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering anything in his scope of practice! I live in Austin, and go see him when I come back to Dallas to see my family. I have also never had any difficulty getting an appointment, even the day of sometimes! HE IS THE BEST! Go see him!"- A.S. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2020
Ideal candidates are almost anyone who have concentrated fat underneath their chin or upper neck area. According to clinical surveys, 8 out of 10 people with a “double chin” feel self-conscious about their facial appearance and profile. The fat cells that accumulate in the chin and neck areas are not usually affected by improvements in diet and exercise. As the skin loses its elasticity and firmness with age, this fat content becomes more noticeable. Many individuals wishing they could do something to improve the look of their chin and neck are often hesitant to put themselves through a surgical, invasive procedure. With Kybella, these patients now have the opportunity to improve their appearance without surgery and with little to no recovery time.
What To Expect
The number of treatment sessions needed will depend on the desired results, as well as the specific needs and goals of each individual patient. 12 – 20 separate injections are typical in the average treatment course in order to obtain the patient’s desired end result. These injections are typically delivered over a span of 2 – 3 separate office visits, with each visit at a 1 month interval. Those patients with an extreme amount of fat stored in the chin area may require as many as 50 injections with office visits scheduled every few months. Treatment sessions generally take around 15 minutes, and results are visible after only a few treatment sessions.
The great benefit of undergoing Kybella injections is the natural-looking results it yields without having to undergo invasive surgery. Once your treatment session is complete, you will be free to return to your daily activities. However, it's important to adhere to any post-treatment care provided by your certified injector. Although the end result relies on the number of treatments each patient recieves, ultimately, the chin will overall be slimmer, which will produce a beautiful neckline and chin contour.
