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.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017
"Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner! He was able to work magic with a rhinoplasty revision from the previous botched nose job I had received from a doctor before him. My nose looks better than it ever has!! He also did a breast augmentation. Upsizing my 10 yr old implants from saline to silicone and a larger implant. And I finally have the breasts I always wanted!! And a testament to his generosity and commitment to perfection, originally I had a smaller implant chosen and after the original surgery was not happy with the size after all. Dr Mentz was kind enough to allow me to go back under the knife only a couple of days after the initial surgery and obtain the larger implants I desired...FREE OF CHARGE!! Only charging me for the price of the implants. His compassion and understanding made me feel like he really cares and his commitment to perfection rivals my own I am about to have a Brazilian butt lift done with him in a month or two and I am so excited!! Because I know what a talented doctor he is!! I would not entrust my body or face to another doctor EVER AGAIN! If your looking for your "happily ever after", look no further! Thank you again Dr Mentz!! For making me feel (and look) whole again!!"- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
"I absolutely love Dr. Mentz. He did my septum many years ago and the bone in my nose fractured like an egg. It was extremely thin. This has happened only once before in his career. He reconstructed my nose and it came out wonderfully. I also had a breast reduction. I balanced it to my body type, and ten years later I still have a good shape. I absolutely trust his aesthetics. He has a wonderful eye, and desire to do beautiful work on every patient. My experiences with him have always been exceptional, and I have extreme confidence in his work. His education speaks volumes about his knowledge."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 25, 2019
"I had a wonderful experience today undergoing my #rhinoplasty and #septoplasty I had the best and most caring doctor along with the help of his wonderful team! I cannot thank Dr. Mentz enough for all he did. I will be forever grateful!"- A.C. / Yelp / Aug 04, 2020

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.
