Fat removal without surgery

Looking to remove some fat without the price tag of surgery? Are you afraid of going under the knife in general? We have a solution for those problems.

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive injection technique developed in France which is more effective for the treatment of localized fat deposits (belly fat; thigh fat) and cellulite. Thus it may be used as an effective substitute for liposuction in its use for local fat reduction.

Kybella, which was created by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals Inc., was approved by the FDA in an overwhelming 17-0 vote in April. The drug is made from deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced in the body to help absorb fats. When injected into the fat below the chin, known as submental fat, it destroys fat cells, which are reabsorbed by the body. Patients can receive up to 50 injections in a single session, with as many as six session’s total, coming at least one month apart. The average treatment lasts 30 minutes for the first appointment, and 15 to 20 minutes for each subsequent one. But unlike liposuction, there’s less bruising and down time.

Call our office to schedule an appointment and find out which treatment is best for you.
