What’s the best non surgical option for jowls?
Getting a finishing touch after rejuvenation treatments
Jul 10, 2020
I appreciate your question. There are nonsurgical skin-tightening treatments that may address your jowls and put the finishing touch on your rejuvenation process. Ultherapy is a device that delivers ultrasound energy deep into the tissue, resulting in constriction and increased collagen levels. The procedure creates firmer, smoother skin from the inside out. Results are apparent within weeks and continue to improve for up to 6 months. Make sure you work with an experienced, board-certified...
How can I improve the roundness of my face and my ever-present double chin?
Options in treating submental fat
Jul 10, 2020
There are a few different options for reducing submental fat under the chin. CoolMini is a noninvasive treatment that freezes the fat cells so the body can eliminate them naturally. Kybella is an injectable treatment that also destroys the fat cells for elimination by the body. Both of these procedures may require more than one session and it will take some time for your results to develop. 
Chin liposuction is your third choice. This procedure is performed using local anesthesia and ...
I'm a healthy, active 29 year old adult woman. Will CoolSculpt, liposuction or other options help redu
Liposuction or CoolSculpt? Take your pick
Jul 10, 2020
Liposuction can be used on nearly any area of the body where stubborn fat develops. CoolSculpting can also be safely and effectively used for arm fat. The right treatment for you will depend on how much fat you have and the results you would like to achieve. I encourage you to schedule an in-person consultation with an experienced, board-certified physician for further assessment and treatment recommendations. 
Can my belly retract nicely from a liposuction without needing a tummy tuck? I've never had kids (Phot
Skin retraction is probably not the first consideration
Jul 10, 2020
Thank you for your question. It is very possible your skin would retract well after a procedure. However, the bigger question is whether liposuction would be sufficient to produce a satisfactory result for you. This treatment works best on patients that have achieved a stable weight but still have stubborn, isolated areas of fat they would like to lose. In your case, liposuction may not be able to remove as much fat as you would need to obtain an ideal outcome. I recommend an in-person...
Would a fat transfer improve the look of these lines around my mouth?
Fat transfer can be an alternative to fillers
Jul 10, 2020
You could use dermal fillers or fat transfer to soften these lines. Fat transfer involves taking a small amount of fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the face to achieve the desired result. Fat tends to last longer than filler for most patients. However, it also cannot be reversed if you don’t like the effect. Some patients like to start with dermal fillers to see if they like the result before moving to fat. Either way, make sure you work with a board-certified d...
Interested in seeing if I could be a candidate for chin liposuction?
Candidate for chin lipo with minimal downtime
Jul 10, 2020
Thank you for your question and photos. It appears you would be an excellent candidate for chin liposuction. This procedure uses micro-cannulas and gentle suction to remove stubborn fat from underneath the skin and define the jawline. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia and downtime is just a few days. In your case, I would consider adding some chin augmentation using dermal fillers. Your chin is currently recessed and by adding a bit of volume, it would bring the chin in...
Neck lift age 36?
Still young for a surgical procedure, may benefit from nonsurgical skin tightening
Jul 10, 2020
It is difficult to tell for sure based on photos alone. I would need to examine you in person to see just how much skin laxity you have. I can tell you that 36 is a bit young for a surgical procedure and there are some very good nonsurgical skin-tightening procedures that may provide very good results for you. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy to constrict tissue and boost collagen levels. ThermiTight fulfills a similar purpose using radiofrequency energy. I recommend scheduling an in-person...
I'm wondering about Cellfina, its permanence and workings.
The facts about Cellfina
Jul 10, 2020
Cellfina is a very effective treatment for cellulite. The procedure uses subcision to release the fibrous bands under the skin that lead to the dimpled appearance. There is little downtime after treatment and results become apparent once the treatment area heals. We tell patients that results have been shown to last for at least one year. However, cellulite can reform and additional treatments may be needed to maintain your improved appearance. Find a board-certified dermatologist with...
Am I a good candidate for liposuction? I am 5’3, 168lbs
Liposuction can produce more dramatic results
Jul 10, 2020
Based on your photos, it appears you might be a good candidate for liposuction. This procedure would address the stubborn fat around the middle with just a few days of downtime afterward. If skin laxity is also a concern, we could combine the liposuction procedure with a nonsurgical skin-tightening device known as ThermiTight. The treatments could be performed at the same time. Make sure you are working with a very experienced, board-certified physician to ensure your treatments are both...
My sagging neck is aging me, what are my treatment options?
Nonsurgical skin tightening is a great option
Jul 10, 2020
The skin laxity you are experiencing can likely be improved with a nonsurgical skin-tightening procedure like Ultherapy or ThermiTight. These treatments deliver energy into the dermal structure to constrict tissue and boost collagen levels. Ultherapy uses ultrasound energy while ThermiTight uses radiofrequency energy. I encourage you to schedule an in-person assessment with a board-certified dermatologist who is very experienced in these procedures. Your doctor can perform an examination and...
Can I lose this double chin pouch with weight loss?
Weight loss not always the answer for submental fat
Jul 10, 2020
Thank you for your question. The submental fat that collects under the chin can be a result of weight gain, but can also be due to genetics. Through diet and exercise, you might be able to lose some of the fat. However, it is more likely you will need a procedure at some point if you want to get the best result. Liposuction is a one-and-done procedure that uses micro-cannulas and gentle suction to remove the fat. The procedure is done using local anesthesia and downtime is typically just a...
What other modalities can I use to tighten the chin area?
Kybella takes time to show results
Jul 10, 2020
Kybella typically requires a series of treatment sessions to achieve full improvement. It can also take a few weeks for the treated fat cells to be eliminated by the body so results are not quick. Another option for you would be chin liposuction. This procedure is performed using local anesthesia and requires a few days of downtime afterward. However, the results are apparent after a single treatment session. I recommend speaking to an experienced, board-certified dermatologist about your...
How can I get a more defined jawline as my chin connects far down my neck?
Defining the jawline starts with removing submental fat under the chin
Jul 10, 2020
You may be a candidate for chin liposuction. This procedure removes submental fat that accumulates under the chin, affecting the definition of the jawline. The treatment is performed in the office with local anesthesia. Tiny incisions are created to insert micro-cannula that remove the fat from the treatment area. Downtime after the procedure is just a few days and the results can be both dramatic and long-lasting. I encourage you to find a board-certified dermatologist with extensive...
Is it safe to get filler in the nose after rhinoplasty?
Nose fillers require precision and expertise - choose your doctor wisely
Jul 10, 2020
It is likely you can get fillers in your nose at this point, but keep in mind this procedure requires a tremendous amount of precision and knowledge of facial anatomy to achieve a positive result. I advise you to find a board-certified dermatologist who performs this type of rhinoplasty regularly to ensure your procedure is both safe and successful.
Am I candidate for liposuction?
Candidate for Liposculpture
Jul 10, 2020
Based on your photos, it appears you would be a very good candidate for liposuction. This procedure can be used on nearly any problem area where stubborn fat has accumulated. I use tumescent liposuction, which injects a tumescent solution into the treatment area before removing the fat. This approach minimizes bleeding and bruising, while providing the precision necessary to achieve a very good result. The procedure can be performed using local anesthesia and downtime is usually just a few...
