Just a little extra fat in the upper throat area can create the presence of a “double chin” that can be unwanted to both women and men. The additional pockets of fat under the chin (also known as 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. Portland, OR board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Aric Aghayan is proud to provide a revolutionary way to get rid of neck fat at Après Plastic Surgery. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical treatment for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly to the body’s natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it is injected under the chin, you can see a visible decrease in fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return so you can enjoy your new slim neck and strong jawline for years to come.
I am 7 weeks post abdominoplasty and I am loving the results. I can’t wait to to see my final transformation in 3 to 4 months which I only expect to get better! If you are considering any aesthetic surgery I highly recommend Dr. Aric Aghayan who is so easy to talk too and real world and his attentive staff will take great care of you. Make the call, you will love the results!
What made my experience with Dr. Aghayan so rewarding was not just his wildly competent and professional procedural skills as a plastic surgeon, but his addicting spirit of reassurance and strong bedside manner. Many doctors have the intellectual capability to perform plastic surgery related procedures, Dr. Aghayan goes beyond this by his spirit of kindness and respect.
The ideal candidates for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats resistant pockets of fat that can’t be reduced with normal weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are at a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the correct treatment for you. While Kybella can correct small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better suited for surgical neck liposuction at Après Plastic Surgery.

Kybella is performed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. Dr. Aghayan will often apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, once the skin has been cleansed. The injection lasts around 15 minutes, which comprises of several small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may only need a single treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple injections spaced three weeks between each appointment at Après Plastic Surgery.
Kybella doesn’t need general anesthesia so you are able to leave our office when you are ready to return to your normal routine. You may have short-term bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin, but this shouldn’t last more than a few days. Contact Après Plastic Surgery right away if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat cells that are eliminated do not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger so you should 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.
Even though everybody else in your family has to hide their genetic double chin, it does not mean you will.
