Get Rid of Your Double Chin
Excess fat in the neck area is described by terms such as double chin, wattle neck, and jowls. The condition can be addressed successfully with liposuction plastic surgery, but not every patient is willing to undergo a surgical procedure for cosmetic reasons. In such cases, now most candidates have a non-surgical double chin reduction option in the form of CoolMini treatment.
This innovation has come about recently when the FDA expanded its approval of CoolSculpting to include the CoolMini device, which is designed to reduce submental fat or double chin. Leading cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolMini treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Reduction of Submental Fat
CoolSculpting has been cleared by the FDA for several years for fat reduction in relatively larger areas such as the abdomen and thighs. The technique involves a unique cooling process that aims at freezing the unwanted fat cells. This causes the eventual elimination of these targeted fat cells from the body. Now the same cooling principle can be applied in smaller pockets such as the area below the chin.
For patients who are averse to the idea of receiving liposuction plastic surgery for the reduction of double chin will stand to benefit the new FDA cleared miniature applicator called the CoolMini. According to a study by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, as many as 68% of the population is dissatisfied with the presence of fat deposits in the chin and neck areas.
CoolMini applicator is designed to clear a smaller amount of neck fat relatively faster and more efficiently. The first goal should be to achieve about 20% reduction in under-chin fat. This will typically require about one to two treatment sessions of one hour each. During the session, the provider will clamp the neck fat into the curved jaws of the CoolMini applicator.
The focused delivery of cold temperature will numb the area quickly, resulting in minimal or no pain during the treatment. However, some patients may experience temporary pain, redness and swelling during the post-treatment phase. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Motykie provides CoolMini treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas.
CoolMini applicator has been cleared by the FDA on the basis of a clinical trial involving 60 patients between the ages of 22 and 65. Following the trial, patients were able to notice results in about three weeks, and the optimal results were seen in about one to three months. During the clinical trial, no significant adverse events were observed and patients did not experience any serious discomfort or downtime.
Several experts are of the opinion that CoolSculpting of the neck with the new CoolMini applicator, which is specifically designed for this purpose, is showing remarkable outcomes for the reduction of double chin. Smaller pockets of fat can now be treated non-surgically with CoolMini procedure with excellent results. Dr. Motykie is one of the earliest adopters of this amazing technology to deliver best in class treatments to his patients.
