Effortlessly re-contour your neck, for a more Attractive, Youthful, and Slimmer Profile
Excess fat under the chin (submental fat) is among the most common cosmetic issues that patients report when they first visit a plastic surgeon.
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.
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.
Dr. Karam or a member of the team will meet with you beforehand to go over all the details of your treatment and answer any outstanding questions. They will discuss topics such as costs and financing; recovery; risks; and of course your final results. For optimal results, 2-4 treatments are required.
On the day of the procedure, the provider will create a grid with a surgical pen beneath your chin, detailing the exact strategic points to be targeted. He will then use an ultra fine needle to make anywhere from 14-55 injections. This will take approximately 20 minutes to complete, so you can be in and out of our San Diego offices during your lunch break!
