If you have a double chin, you know how hard it is to get rid of this dreaded fat pocket, even with exercise and a healthy diet. In the past, Drs. Solieman and Litner offered all of their patients neck liposuction for fast and effective treatment of this unwanted neck fat. For patients not quite ready for liposuction, there were no effective alternatives for permanently erasing a double chin. Thankfully, that is no longer the case. At Profiles Beverly Hills, we are proud to now offer SculpSure, the first FDA-approved laser treatment for the reduction of fat in the chin and neck area, also known as the submental area.
SculpSure is a completely non-invasive energy device that melts fat cells with no downtime. The device utilizes targeted laser energy to heat fat cells, while not affecting the surrounding skin or tissue. These fat cells are destroyed by the heat and are naturally broken down by the body in the following weeks. As a result, pockets of fat shrink by as much as 24% with each treatment, with full results appearing after approximately six weeks.
At the hands of Los Angeles double board-certified facial plastic surgeons Dr. Peyman Solieman and Dr. Jason Litner, patients can achieve dramatic results after just one session, with no pain and no downtime. For larger fat pockets, you may wish to have more than one treatment to achieve the look you desire.
Treatments are quick, with each session lasting approximately 25 minutes, perfect for a lunch break. And because SculpSure is completely non-invasive, patients are able to immediately return to normal activity as soon as their appointment is finished.
Compared to SculpSure, results from neck liposuction are more immediate. Our doctors typically recommend light sedation or anesthesia for your liposuction procedure to ensure the greatest comfort. Recovery from neck liposuction is quick with a minor risk of mild bruising or swelling.
Depending on your needs, Drs. Litner and Solieman may recommend liposuction over SculpSure if you have larger areas of fat to be treated, if you have relatively more loose skin, or if you are already having another procedure under anesthesia, such as chin augmentation.
*Results May Vary
Many patients ask about the relative benefits of SculpSure vs. Kybella for fat reduction. Kybella treatment involves injections of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that breaks down fat. In our opinion, Kybella treatment requires more sessions overall and results in greater swelling, downtime, and potential risk of side effects. We believe SculpSure to provide a superior non-surgical alternative for fat reduction.
When you see Dr. Solieman and Dr. Litner, you will receive their combined expertise and experience in determining which treatments will best address your particular needs and concerns. At your consultation, the Doctors will conduct a thorough analysis of your neck and skin, inspecting the amount and distribution of fat, and the skin laxity to determine the best procedure for you.
No matter your treatment, your satisfaction with your appearance is our ultimate priority. At your consultation, the doctors will provide a detailed explanation of everything pertaining to your customized case, including your goals, possible risk factors, how to prepare, and how to quickly recover.
