A Full Suite of Effective, Proven Procedures is Available to Provide Patients with Beautiful,
Natural-Looking and Permanent Results
Sarasota, Florida—November 2, 2015— Holcomb – Kreithen Plastic Surgery and MedSpa, PLLC (“Holcomb – Kreithen”), one of the leading plastic surgery practices in Florida, is pleased to announce that it is now offering three state-of-the-art and most advanced non-surgical treatment options for safely and effectively eliminating submental fullness. This is the area below the chin where fatty tissue often accumulates and that may then be referred to as the double chin or “turkey neck.”
The treatment options include Kybella™, CoolSculpting® and Laser-Assisted Neck Contouring. Holcomb – Kreithen is one of the only practices in Florida offering all three options, a testament to its reputation for keeping up with the latest technical advances in aesthetic approaches. As more and more patients seek non-invasive and minimally-invasive ways of dealing with challenges to their appearance, Holcomb – Kreithen has continued to develop expertise in the most cutting-edge fat reduction solutions on the market.
A double chin is essentially an accumulation of excess fatty tissue (resulting from lifestyle, age and genetic factors) and loose skin on the neck beneath the chin that causes a second area of fullness to appear. According to a 2014 survey by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 68% of people reported that excess fat under the chin and neck was their top cosmetic concern. This number increased eight percent from the previous year. Unlike other parts of the body, a double chin cannot be hidden or disguised with clothing, making it a prime problem location to be addressed.
Practice co-founder, Dr. J. David Holcomb, a pioneer in the development of minimally-invasive facial procedures, said, “Double chin represents one of the main cosmetic problem areas patients inquire about. We are excited to now be able to offer our patients three effective non-surgical options for treating and contouring the neck area that can successfully and safely eliminate double chin.”
He continued, “We are committed to offering our patients customized treatment plans that match their individual needs. With these three procedures, patients can reduce or eliminate double chin and rejuvenate their overall appearance in a very noticeable, natural-looking way.”
The treatments can be summarized as follows:
Kybella is a medication that dissolves fat cells and improves neck contour. Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced in the body that helps absorb fats. Patients can receive two or more small vials of medication in a single treatment, and many of them experience successful results with two or three treatments spaced 1 month apart.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that selectively reduces unwanted fat using a patented cooling technology. It works by gently cooling targeted fat cells in the body to induce them to be eliminated in a natural, controlled way without damaging surrounding tissue. The treated fat cells are permanently removed and patients can expect long-lasting results. The new CoolMini applicator was developed to treat fatty tissue under the chin.
Laser-Assisted Neck Contouring
The Laser-Assisted Neck Contouring procedure uses a special fiber laser to break up fatty tissue in a minimally-invasive manner. The treated fat is then eliminated through manual removal (using a small liposuction cannula) or through natural absorption by the body. Most patients notice immediate results and obtain lasting improvement with a single treatment.
It should be noted that non and minimally-invasive approaches are not indicated for everyone. Traditional face and neck lifting or the laser-assisted facelift––procedures which are also offered by Holcomb – Kreithen––may be more appropriate for those with greater skin laxity or for those desiring a more immediate improvement.
