Board-certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, Dr. A Jay Burns, now offers Kybella injections at his well-established plastic surgery practice in Dallas, TX. He can help you eliminate troubling "double chin" appearance or mild-to-moderate neck fat with injections of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, Kybella. This is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat (the pocket of fat under the chin). The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA). When injected into the pocket of fat in the upper neck area, Kybella acts like a natural DA in the body and breaks down the fat cells. You will quickly see a reduction of fat in the treatment area and enjoy your slimmer neck and more defined jaw and neckline. Let us help you bypass genetics, aging skin, or weight fluctuations in your chin area. Dr. A Burns Cosmetic Surgery offers Kybella consultations to both men and women in the Dallas, TX area.
The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that is causing a double chin or unwanted fullness. Kybella treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods that may be caused by genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight and diet and exercise have proven to not help reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can reduce small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.
"I highly recommend Dr. Burns to everyone. He does AMAZING things and truly cares for his patients. Throughout my early childhood and adolescent years, I had several surgeries with Dr. Burns due to birth defects on my skin. He truly cares about his patients and his skills are the reason I have so much confidence in myself as an adult now. These surgeries happened many years ago but they have changed my life forever ( and for the better) and I’m forever grateful that I had Dr. Burns as my doctor!"- E.L. / Facebook / Mar 29, 2018
"Dr. Burns Is an amazing surgeon! I recently had my implants removed and did a fat transfer to the breast. I had larger implants (505's) and he was one of the only doctors I consulted with that did not urge me to do a lift. He listened to what I was looking for and was very confident that he could provide me what I wanted. My right implant was never placed properly so he spent some time fixing my right breast. He checked on me after surgery and gave my husband his cell phone number in case we needed to reach him. I flew from California for surgery and I do not have any regrets. His staff is kind and professional and Tracie is so sweet! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I'm so thankful for the great care him and his staff provided!"- A.B. / Yelp / Feb 24, 2018
"My husband and I have met with several pediatric plastic surgeons over the course of the past two years. Dr. Burns is by far the best of the group. Our son is still a few years out from having his surgery, however, I wanted to express how much I love Dr. Burns! He has been so extremely caring and has answered all my questions and made me feel like he truly cares about our little man. I never felt rushed when meeting with him and he made it very clear that if we felt we needed to see him again before our next yearly appointment, his door was always open. The other surgeons we met with may be great surgeons as well, but, Dr. Burn made me feel like my son was his only patient. His demeanor and caring personality make him the best fit for our family. I know our son will be in good hands when the time comes for surgery."- F.S. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017
"Dr. John Burns is caring, kind, honest, and, most importantly, extremely skilled at what he does. I've been a patient for 12 years, having gotten a laser resurfacing, lipsuction, a facelift, botox, fillers, and a chemical peel. He does all of his own injections. His prices are reasonable, his staff is caring and really fun, his office is modern and elegant, and he's just the best."- N.A. / Yelp / Aug 05, 2017

- Procedure Recovery Location
Kybella injections are performed during an in-office appointment. We usually apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area after the skin has been cleansed. The treatment takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart.
What to Expect
Since Kybella does not require anesthesia, patients are able to leave the office as soon as they feel comfortable to resume their normal activities. Patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, or numbness under the chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call our office immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells destroyed by Kybella cannot return, the remaining fat cells can become larger, so patients should maintain a steady weight after their Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming in other areas of their body. The results following this treatment leaves your neck looking slimmer and tighter, and your profile will be more defined with significant improvement.
