Here at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery, we understand that sometimes people don't need or want to go under the knife for minor fat reduction or skin tightening concerns. Non-surgical cosmetic treatments have come a long way, and nowadays there are very effective procedures available that can provide visible results, although nothing will be as dramatic as surgery.
If you are just beginning to see signs of skin laxity, or if you have small areas of problem fat deposits such as a double chin, then one of our non-surgical skin tightening or fat reduction procedures in Phoenix may be a good fit for you.
Call us today at 602-883-4483 to schedule your complimentary consultation.
Non-Invasive Double Chin Reduction
A double chin is a common problem that many people face. It is hard to lose weight on the face, and there are no targeted exercises that can reduce facial fat. A double chin can make you look heavier than you really are, especially in photos, and it can contribute to self-consciousness and a negative self image.
Kybella is an injectable fat reduction treatment FDA approved for submental fat underneath the chin. It uses deoxycholic acid to target and break down fat cells, which leads to a permanent reduction in fat without the need for a surgical procedure like liposuction.
Kybella requires anywhere from two to four treatments for optimal results, but once you've reached your ideal results, there is no need for follow-up maintenance visits. Once the fat is gone, it's gone for good.
The ideal candidate for a Kybella treatment is someone who:
- Has excess fat under the chin (not excess skin, like a "turkey wattle")
- Does not want to undergo liposuction
- Is patient - final results may take a few months to appear
Kybella treatments are not painful, and side effects are mild. You may feel some slight soreness, and there may be some swelling for the first few days.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening and Cellulite Reduction
Here at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, we offer Venus Freeze radiofrequency treatments for patients who want tighter, smoother, toned skin without surgery. Venus Freeze can be used on the face or body to help firm minimally sagging skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help improve the appearance of cellulite.
Venus Freeze uses a combination of pulsed magnetic fields and multipolar radiofrequency technology to gently heat deep tissue and stimulate collagen production. This collagen production helps to tighten and firm skin gently and effectively.
You may be a good candidate for Venus Freeze if you:
- Have minimal skin sagging that doesn't warrant a facelift
- Have cellulite you'd like to reduce
- Want to firm and tone skin on your thighs, abdomen, arms, or other area of the body
- Want to reduce the beginnings of a "turkey wattle"
- Want a more contoured jawline without surgery
While Venus Freeze can be a great option for non-surgical skin tightening, it's important to understand its limitations. If you have significant sagging or jowls, a surgical neck lift or facelift is always going to give better results.
