One of the most desirable facial features on any man or woman is a well-defined chin and jawline. Balance, or facial harmony, creates a sense of continuity and flow, and it divides the face into equal thirds of the brow, mid-face, and the jaw line. A poorly defined neck or jawline can appear less attractive than one that is well-defined. Submental fullness, commonly referred to as a “double chin,” is a common facial aesthetic condition that can impact both women and men. It can result from aging, genetics, or weight gain. For some individuals, the condition will have no chance of disappearing no matter how much they diet or exercise. Using Kybella injections, the Houston MedSpa of triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz, helps patients eliminate the fat cells under their chin for a better defined chin and jaw.
"I have been a patient of Dr. MENTZ for more than 15 years. He is an artist...very gifted. He is extremely kind and thoughtful. His staff is conscientious, diligent and very responsive. Choose Dr Mentz and you will be ecstatic with the quality and aesthetics. Also HIGHLY recommend Renee at the spa for fillers, Botox excetera. She is just the best."- L.F. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2017

"I had an amazing experience. Would do it again. - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon. I am 13 days out at this time so still early in the recovery process but I am very satisfied with my progress. I had the remainder of my sutures removed yesterday and am looking forward to the future with my new much improved face. Dr. Mentz and his "family" of caring staff are beyond what everyone should look for in a PS. I know I chose the best!! - - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon.

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid which helps break down fat cells. When Kybella is injected below the chin, it will destroy the fat cells, and these cells will not be able to collect or store fat once destroyed. However, if the patient gains weight after a Kybella treatment, the remaining fat cells will expand for diminished results.
