This annoying trait (often inherited) can make a person look older, heavier and less attractive than they would otherwise. Worse yet, this fat under the chin does not typically respond to changes in diet and exercise as other parts of the body tend to do. The stubborn, unwanted fat beneath the chin has notoriously been among the most difficult areas of the body to treat cosmetically. Now, thanks to the innovative, FDA-approved injectable, Kybella, patients are enjoying a slimmer, more streamlined profile and a huge boost in their self-confidence.

What Makes Kybella So Effective?

Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid. This potent molecule is found naturally in the human body. It works to break down fat reserves and escort their waste out through a normal elimination process. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella works to metabolize the fat cells and flush them from the body.

How is Radiesse Formulated to Achieve its Stunning Results?

Radiesse relies on the power of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) molecules that are suspended in a gel-like substance. They work to hydrate the skin, while simultaneously helping to boost the body’s production of collagen.

"I had a vertical restore at age 65 with Dr Amir Karam. It has been a little over a year and I am delighted with the results. Some of my friends have not even noticed - I just look rested. Dr Karam will provide you with all the information and supplements that you need to make the procedure and the recovery time as comfortable as possible. I usually bruise very easily but with the supplements that were given to me prior to my procedure and afterwards, my bruises were gone within a week."

"I highly recommend Dr. Karam and would go back to him for anything I might want done in the future. I totally trust his approach and recommendations. You won't be disappointed!"

"I'm one month out from a Vertical Restore with Dr Karam. Dr Karam is an incredibly talented Surgeon. I can barely see my scars already. I also did a laser peel, within 8 days I was wearing makeup and admiring my new jawline and neck. I'm 65 this month and so happy I chose him. He is the best there is. His staff are fun, caring and kind. They made my entire experience so easy. I would not hesitate or even think about going anywhere else. Check out his Instagram account. He does all his content himself. Extremely informative, with many before and after photos. I decided on Dr Karam after researching his Instagram and had made my decision before we had even met."

"Dr Karam is a great surgeon, a true artist and a wonderful human being. He has done 2 procedures on me over the last 3 years. Both with excellent results. His fat transfer and his lip lift technique are extraordinary. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for the best."
