Dermal Fillers: Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, etc.

Fill in wrinkles and smooth out your skin with dermal fillers. These injectable fillers can sculpt, shape, and contour with effective results. Dermal fillers can also fill in lines and wrinkles and augment the lips. We even use them for hand rejuvenation. Results are often instant and can last as long as two years, depending on the fillers used.

We offer a wide range of fillers, including several hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the skin. It is very biocompatible and doesn’t require pre-treatment testing. During your initial visit we’ll examine your skin and make recommendations on the best filler options for you. Fillers can be used on their own, combined with other fillers, paired with Botox/Dysport, and even used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments.

Fat Dissolvers- Kybella

For the dreaded double chin, we offer an exciting injectable option, Kybella. This injectable contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that aids the body in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected under the chin it destroys fat cells, providing lasting improvement in the appearance of your profile.

Kybella is completely non-surgical. Downtime is minimal, if any. Most patients need a couple of treatments to achieve their best results.

What Are My Facial Contouring Options?

Has your face lost it youthful contours? As the body ages, fat deposits can develop in undesirable locations like the jowls, neck, especially under the chin. Also, loss of volume in the cheeks, temples and below the eyes can give a haggard, aged appearance. Restore a more youthful look with facial contouring. What are your options? Find out below.

Liposuction for Facial Contouring

When people think of liposuction, they often think ofWhat Are My Facial Contouring Options? body contouring, but the body isn’t the only area that can benefit from liposuction. It can be a very effective option for facial contouring as well. We use a “mini” or “syringe” liposuction with local anesthesia. Liposuction can permanently remove excess fat from the cheeks, chin and neck to transform your facial appearance. The results can be dramatic and the recovery period is minimal.

We perform facial liposuction here in our offices. After a consultation, a small cannula is inserted into the skin through a tiny incision. We carefully place each incision in an inconspicuous location to reduce the appearance of scarring. These heal in 2-3 days and are virtually invisible. Excess fat is then extracted, using either a syringe or gentle suction pump attached to the cannula. This gives us great control of the fat removal and allows us to sculpt and reshape the area. Both Drs. Dale and Michelle Abadir are highly skilled in creating subtle, natural-looking facial contours through liposuction.

Are the Results Permanent?

Liposuction is a permanent fat removal method. The extracted fat cells are permanently gone and will not ever regenerate. If you gain weight after treatment, the fat will distribute throughout your existing fat cells. Since facial liposuction permanently removes fat cells, fat will not be able to return to the treated area should you gain a little weight.

Complementary Procedures

Facial liposuction can transform your face on its own, but is often paired with other procedures for even more dramatic results. Safe injections can be used to fill unattractive hollowing, and Thermage can tighten lax skin with no downtime for an even more youthful appearance. If needed, excess skin can be removed. Talk with Drs. Abadir about which procedures can complement your facial liposuction.

We will be one of the very earliest practices to offer Kybella, the newly approved injection to reduce fat deposits under the chin.
