Do you ever accidentally activate the front-facing camera on your phone and wince? While that angle isn’t flattering for anyone, men and women alike who are unhappy with the look of their neck and chin certainly don’t need an extra surprise that emphasizes their sagging skin, jowls, or double chin. While Dr. Christopher Davidson can’t keep you from catching sight of yourself at awkward angles, he can help make positive changes to facial contours with a range of treatments and procedures, including Kybella®, at his Boston-area practice.
Kybella® is proving to be a popular choice for patients who want to lose a double chin. The treatment involves nothing more than a series of injections, handled in roughly half-hour sessions spread several weeks apart. From there, your body does the work in breaking down ruptured fat cells. Results appear over weeks and months, making the process a gradual, but effective one.
Patients can also choose liposuction, which surgically removes unwanted fat cells by suctioning them out of the body. Some swelling and bruising will be visible for a short while after the procedure, but ideal results can generally be achieved in just one session—and will be immediately visible.
Liposuction can also be an element of a neck lift, which is a more involved procedure to tighten the loose skin that creates a turkey neck. When coupled with a jowl-lifting facelift, these procedures can transform a silhouette, taking it from saggy to sleek.
For patients who want a temporary, subtle lift, Juvéderm Voluma® is a dermal filler that adds volume to flattened cheeks, restoring youthful contours to the mid-face while also pulling up sagging skin that hangs lower on the face.
