Kybella: The nonsurgical solution to redefining your chin

The fear of having a double chin is extremely common in both men and women across the globe. This fear becomes or already is a reality for many of us. Thankfully, there is now a safe and effective solution for this common issue. Rediscover your jaw-line with the revolutionary procedure, Kybella.

Kybella is the nonsurgical solution designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat. It provides maximum results and requires minimal commitment as sessions average between 20 and 30 minutes. Although it varies with each patient, 2-6  sessions scheduled a month apart are suggested for optimum results.

Kybella is the first injectable substance that the FDA has approved to treat under the chin fat. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance found in our bodies naturally that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected into “under the skin” fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The preference for fat cells leaves surrounding tissue largely unaffected. It destroys fat cells under the chin, leaving the skin substantially tighter and the jaw more contoured.

Ways To Improve Your Quality of Life

There is something to be said about plastic surgery and the direct impact that it has on one’s outlook on life. There has been many studies done that show an improved quality of life based on the self-confidence and satisfaction of removing or improving certain aspects of one’s appearance, that outweighs the cost of living an unfulfilled life due to a lack of self-esteem. Many of us have battled with aspects of our outward appearance, some greater than others. We all have the power to change or enhance our outward appearance and inner well-being, whether it be through a cosmetic surgery or by making a lifestyle change. Whatever your desire or need may be, here are a few ways to start improving your quality of life today.

If you are someone who is interested in finding out more about plastic surgery, schedule your own personal consultation with our board certified plastic surgeon and find out your options.

Facial Enhancements and Fillers

Not ready for surgery, but have a few fine lines you want to fix? Though there are various types of facial enhancements offered at LiftMD, one to look into if you are considering a procedure is JUVÉDERM. JUVÉDERM® is the latest dermal filler advance from Allergan Inc. JUVÉDERM® is a “next generation” smooth gel, non-animal dermal filler offering a natural look/feel and long-lasting results for up to six months or longer. JUVÉDERM® dermal filler lasts long because it’s the only dermal filler currently available with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a special formulation process. This process creates a smooth gel that flows easily into the skin, creating smooth, natural looks. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers use a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be visibly seen as opposed to the smoother formulation used in JUVÉDERM®. The smooth consistency of JUVÉDERM® dermal filler also may help to minimize the discomfort that can sometimes occur during the injection procedure.

You’ve heard about the “Vampire Facial.” Now come see for yourself!

Last week at Lift MD Aesthetics we filmed a patient getting the micro needling with the addition of PRP centrifuge treatment. This treatment will improve your tone and texture, help with fine lines and wrinkles and overall facial rejuvenation. The device separates the components of one’s own blood to concentrate the platelets which trigger the body’s natural healing process. The PRP centrifuge treatment takes platelet rich plasma which draws stem cells to the area to enhance your results. This will have an instant rejuvenation effect to give the patient a more youthful and vibrant look. To see the best results, it is recommended to come in for at least 3 treatments.  Call us at Lift MD Aesthetics to schedule an appointment or to get more information.

Lipotherme™ is a safe, effective procedure performed by a board certified cosmetic surgeon using a laser to quickly and effectively liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones.  In addition to removing unwanted fat, the thermal effect of Lipotherme™ causes the skin to tighten, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping goals.

What makes Lipotherme™ different from traditional liposuction?  It is faster and minimally invasive.  Recovery time is less, meaning you will be back in action in less time.  The procedure is less painful than traditional liposuction, allowing you to be awake during the procedure.

Lipotherme™ can be used to treat several areas of the body including the stomach, back, thighs, legs, hips, arms, and even the neck and face.  Lipotherme™ has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration so you can trust that it is safe.

Perlane-L Now Available at Lift MD Aesthetics® by Garo Kassabian MD, FACS, Lift MD Aesthetics®

By Garo Kassabian MD, FACSLift MD Aesthetics®

Perlane-L™ is a cosmetic dermal filler similar to Restylane-L™. These cosmetic dermal fillers add volume within the skin.  They consist of hyaluronic acid.  In the body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin.  As we age, we have less of this natural hyaluronic acid and lines and wrinkles develop.  The difference between Restylane-L™ and Perlane-L™ is that Perlane-L is made up of larger particles and is injected deeper into the skin.  Therefore, Perlane-L™ is best for those deeper lines and wrinkles. The ingredient in both Perlane-L™ and Restylane-L™ that makes them different than their predecessors, Perlane® and Restylane® is lidocaine, a local anesthetic.  This makes the injections less painful than before.

Perlane-L™ uses the hyaluronic acid to replace the lost volume to your skin and restores youthful contours to smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. After treatment with Perlane-L the hydrophilic or “water loving” nature of the hyaluronic acid molecules allows them to bind many times their weight in water as they slowly break down.  This process is what helps maintain volume for about six months. 

Administered under the expertise of  Dr. Garo Kassabian, MD,FACS, a dual board certified cosmetic surgeon at Lift MD Aesthetics®, you can rest assured that your treatment with Perlane-L™ will be individualized to your needs to achieve maximum results.  You’ll still look like yourself—just rejuvenated!

Restylane-L™ Now Available at Lift MD Aesthetics® by Garo Kassabian MD,FACS, Lift MD Aesthetics®

By Garo Kassabian, MD, FACS, Lift MD Aesthetics®

Restylane-L™ is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that restores fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds such as those from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).  The hyaluronic acid replaces the lost volume and restores youthful contours. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. It’s job is to help provide fullness and elasticity.  Over time your skin loses hyaluronic acid and as it diminishes, skin loses volume and increases the chances for wrinkles and lines to appear.  As you age, lips lose their plumpness and Restylane-L™ restores that fullness and provides a smoother contour.  It can augment your lips as well. The average Restylane-L™ treatment lasts six months or longer. The difference between the original Restylane® and Restylane-L™ is the addition of Lidocaine, a local anesthetic.  The addition of a local anesthetic makes the treatment less uncomfortable.

Under the expertise of Garo Kassabian, MD, FACS, a board certified cosmetic surgeon with Lift MD Aesthetics®, you can receive this rejuvenating cosmetic beauty treatment for a natural, younger-looking you!  You’ll still look like yourself—just rejuvenated!  Check out our entire line of skin care products and systems at www.liftmd.com.
