Kybella Treatment Can Provide a Well-Defined Appearance

POSTED ON TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 04, 2018 AT 5:01 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Weight gain, aging, and genetics are all factors that can contribute to a loss of facial definition. If the stubborn fat under your chin or upper neck, called submental fat, is making you feel embarrassed or unhappy, Kybella™ can help you achieve a sculpted profile. Kybella™ is FDA-approved and is designed to give patients a youthful, natural-looking appearance. Learn more about Kybella™ below!

How Kybella™ Works

Kybella™ is a nonsurgical injectable solution for patients experiencing excess fat below the chin, also known as the “double chin.” Kybella’s active ingredient called deoxycholic acid—a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down dietary fat—is inserted into the targeted area(s) to destroy fat cells. Once these fat cells are destroyed, the cells will not be able to accumulate or store fat.

In order to achieve optimal results, patients will receive Kybella™ treatments over several months—depending on the patient and how much submental fat is present. On average, a Kybella™ cycle may range from 2-6 injections and can last approximately 15-20 minutes for each session.

Dr. Bassin and his team of doctors will work with patients on creating a personalized Kybella™ procedure plan to produce long-lasting results. Furthermore, results will continuously improve over the course of the procedure.

Benefits Of Kybella™

Kybella™ is a safe and effective treatment for anyone who has moderate to severe submental fat. It can help achieve a patient’s aesthetic goals and is an effective alternative to neck liposuction or surgery.

  • Can help reduce the appearance of a double chin
  • A non-surgical procedure that can be performed quickly and provide satisfying results
  •  A better alternative to invasive treatments
  • No downtime associated with Kybella™  treatment

Our doctors and staff welcome any questions you may have regarding Kybella™ treatment. You can contact us at 877.333.3223 or request an appointment online at one of our Florida locations: Melbourne, Orlando, Metro West Orlando, The Villages®.

Treating Double Chin With LazerLift™, Kybella™, & Liposuction!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 08, 2016 AT 2:05 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

The jawline is one of the most prominent parts of your facial profile and among the top cosmetic concerns among patients undergoing facial rejuvenation. A defined chin can inspire confidence and promote a youthful-looking appearance. However, sagging skin or unwanted fat around the neck can take away from a contoured chin—resulting in a more rounded look. Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery in Orlando specializes in addressing submental fat under the chin. Below are three minimally invasive treatments that can help promote a more graceful, youthful-looking facial profile.

Redefine Neck Contours With LazerLift™

LazerLift™ is a unique laser facelift procedure that can tighten lax neck skin without stitches, scalpels, or scars. During LazerLift™ treatment, laser energy penetrates beneath the skin, heating the lower layers. Heat from the laser results in tissue coagulation and provides a lifting effect. LazerLift™ can target jowls, neck creases, and wrinkles for a firmer-looking jawline.

Eliminate Double Chin With Kybella™

Kybella™ is a non-invasive solution to double chin. Kybella™ is made from deoxycholic acid—a natural substance found in your body—and is carefully injected under the chin to target submental fat cells. The Kybella™ solution gradually breaks down unwanted fat cells, resulting in their natural removal from the body. Kybella™ is administered in a series of injections to evenly target double chin and achieve symmetrical results.

Remove Excess Fat With Submental Liposuction

Submental liposuction can remove unwanted fat pockets beneath the chin with precision! During this procedure, small cannulas are introduced under the skin to melt away excess fat cells for a firmer-looking jawline. Liposuction can also promote skin tightening around the treatment site, as laser energy encourages the formation of new collagen under the skin’s surface.

Dr. Roger Bassin, his doctors, and staff at Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery welcome any questions you may have regarding LazerLift™, Kybella™, or submental liposuction, as well as our other facial rejuvenation treatments. You can contact us at 877.333.3223 or request an appointment online for a personal consultation at one of our Florida locations: Melbourne, Orlando, Metro West Orlando, Tampa, St Petersburg, The Villages®.

Body Contouring Procedures for Men to Improve Your Physique!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 2016 AT 3:13 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Did you know that plastic surgery for men is on the rise? More and more male patients are choosing to undergo body contouring and facial rejuvenation procedures to improve their physique. Using the latest body sculpting techniques, surgeons can target troublesome areas of the body to achieve natural-looking results. At Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery in Tampa, we offer various treatments to help sculpt an athletic, lean body, including neck and chin liposuction, male breast reduction, CoolSculpting®, and SculpSure™.

Enhance Jawline Definition!

Patients suffering from excess fat around the chin and neck can undergo liposuction for a defined jawline. Referred to as submental fat, these fat pockets are often caused by weight gain or aging and may contribute to the appearance of a double chin. This condition takes away from the contours of your jaw line. Our liposuction surgeons can target submental fat cells with precision using a variety of different procedures. Kybella™ is a completely non-invasive treatment that can eliminate double chin through strategically-placed injections around the submental area. These injections break down excess chin fat and, over time, your body naturally removes these fat cells from your system. SmartLipo® is a minimally-invasive lipo procedure that selectively removes fat cells around the chin and neck, while also promoting skin tightening for improvements in definition. Aqualipo® can also be used to gently remove fat cells without extensive downtime. Aqualipo® water jet liposuction technology can flush away excess fat to improve facial contours.

Reduce The Size Of Enlarged Breasts!

Enlarged male breasts can take away from a masculine chest and affect self-esteem. This condition, also known as gynecomastia, occurs when enlarged breast tissue forms around the chest, due to genetics, obesity, or medical conditions. A combination of liposuction and male breast reduction surgery can remove and reposition breast tissue to sculpt a defined chest. Aqualipo® is ideal for carefully removing small amounts of fat from the breasts, while gynecomastia surgery can excise and re-drape excess tissue to reduce the size of male breasts.

Melt Belly Fat And Sculpt The Midsection!

Men looking to slim the waistline and eliminate love handles can undergo one of our non-surgical belly fat treatments. CoolSculpting® uses specialized cryolipolysis technology to freeze excess fat around the midsection. These frozen fat cells are naturally eliminated by your body over time, leading to natural-looking results. CoolSculpting® requires no downtime and patients can expect results in the months following their treatment.

SculpSure™ is another non-surgical fat removal treatment that can target the abdomen and flanks. SculpSure™ delivers precise heat energy to excess fat around the midsection. As these fat cells are exposed to heat from the SculpSure™ machine, they begin to separate from surrounding tissue. Eventually, the body processes these fat cells, removing them from your system. SculpSure™ treatment lasts as little as 25 minutes and patients can resume their daily activities immediately.

Dr. Roger BassinDr. Tom Kosowski, and our staff welcome any questions you may have regarding neck and chin liposuction, male breast reduction, CoolSculpting®, and SculpSure™, as well as any of our other procedures. You can contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages® Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Kosowski.

Introducing Kybella: the First Minimally-Invasive Double Chin Treatment!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 04, 2015 AT 2:08 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Did you know that over 60% of patients worry about the area below the chin? A contoured chin can contribute to a youthful-looking facial profile. However, excess fat cells underneath the chin—also known as “submental fat”—can result in a heavier appearance and a loss of definition around your jawline. Submental fullness can be caused by various factors, including genetics, aging, and weight gain.

This type of excess fat is often resistant to traditional diet and exercise—leaving many patients confused in their search for a long-term solution to regain youthful contours around the chin. Here at Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery in Florida, we are proud to offer the first FDA-approved double chin treatment: Kybella!

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is the world’s first minimally-invasive solution to excess chin fat. The Kybella injection offers long-lasting results without any stitching, scarring, or extensive downtime. Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid—a substance found in the body that eliminates submental fat cells. Results after undergoing Kybella treatment are long-lasting and can usually be seen within a few weeks and continue with additional treatments.

How Does My Kybella Procedure Work?

Kybella injections are delivered in as little as 20 minutes. Each treatment is spread out approximately a month apart to obtain the best results. You may undergo anywhere from 2-6 total injections during your overall treatment plan, depending on your individual needs and goals. Our Kybella doctors will sit down with you to create a customized course of action. There may be some initial bruising or swelling after your Kybella treatment; these side effects are normal and should subside after a few days.

Why Choose Kybella Treatment?

  • First FDA-approved method for removing double chins
  • Creates youthful contouring and definition beneath the chin
  • Non-invasive procedure
  • Treatments last as little as 15-20 minutes
  • Achieves long-lasting results
  • No stitches or scarring involved

Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and our staff look forward to discussing any questions you may have about Kybella. You can contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Mendoza.
