    CoolMini and Micro Liposuction: Alternatives to Kybella Chin Reduction

    Tag Archives: Chin Reduction

    Alternatives to Kybella Chin Reduction | Richmond Medical SpaExcess fat tissue deposit in the neck area is a common problem for both men and women, and can give an unsightly appearance of a double chin. A number of minimally invasive procedures are available today to address the issue of submental fat or fat below the chin.
    However, it is important to choose the most appropriate procedure that meets a patient’s unique health and cosmetic goals. MBody provides CoolMini and Micro Liposuction as two safe, proven and effective solutions to reduce chin fat.
     

    Limitations of Kybella Injections

    The board certified plastic surgeons at MBody, Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, recommend non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures such as CoolMini and Micro Liposuction over Kybella injections. Kybella treatment is typically marked by certain limitations, which include:

    • At least three to four treatment sessions may be needed with Kybella, which makes it a more time-consuming as well as more expensive option
    • Multiple needle injections will be administered in each treatment session, which can be a daunting and painful prospect for many patients.
    • Post-treatment swelling or ‘bullfrog’ effect will be noticeable for up to one week after each treatment session, which can be a prolonged process when the patient has to undergo multiple treatments.

     

    CoolMini by CoolSculpting

    is an FDA-cleared device specially designed to address unwanted fat pockets in smaller areas such as under the chin. The treatment is completely non-invasive, and involves no incisions, needles or medications. The patient will typically require only two treatment sessions to achieve their desired chin appearance. Minor swelling or bruising may be expected, but typically no downtime is involved.
    CoolMini treatment is also more affordable compared to Kybella injections. It employs the same unique fat-freezing technique as CoolSculpting to eliminate targeted fat cells in a selective manner. CoolMini applicator will direct the powerful cooling energy at the fat cells, causing them to freeze and gradually disintegrate.
    The disintegrated cells will be naturally reabsorbed by the body’s own metabolic process, while the outer skin layers remain without damage to minimize the post-treatment recovery. The patient can return to their normal routine immediately, and the procedure will cause no significant discomfort during or after the treatment session.  
     

    Micro Liposuction of the Neck

    This is an innovative in-office liposuction treatment that is performed by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin. The patient will remain awake throughout the treatment without requiring general anesthesia or sedation. Minimal discomfort will occur during and after the procedure, and most patients can return to their normal routine within a day if cosmetic appearance is not a concern.
    The micro liposuction technique called LITTLE Lipo can be performed at MBody using only local tumescent anesthetic and mild anti-anxiety medications. Only very tiny incisions will be made to minimize swelling and bruising. Just like traditional liposuction the micro liposuction technique will gently suction out excess fatty tissue from submental area through very fine cannulas, which are typically only about 3 to 5 mm in diameter.

If the patient wants to avoid liposuction plastic surgery, the treatment provider may recommend CoolMini non-invasive procedure to reduce submental fat. CoolMini is a customized body contouring applicator from Zeltiq, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting.
    The CoolMini applicator has been cleared by the FDA for the reduction of unwanted fat tissue around the neck area below the chin. MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons, provides CoolMini neck fat treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding communities.

    Ideally Suited for Neck Fat Reduction

    Excess fat tissue below the chin is usually an area that can be difficult to treat with conventional non-surgical procedures. Therefore, Zeltiq came up with the CoolMini applicator, which has a unique shape, size and curvature that is specifically designed to address smaller pockets of fat in the submental region. The FDA has cleared the device for submental fat reduction.
    The fat in this area can be difficult to reduce with diet and exercise, and CoolMini offers a completely non-invasive alternative treatment. Procedure in this small volume area can be completed with a similar level of efficacy as CoolSculpting. Unlike plastic surgery, CoolMini involves little to no downtime and no pain. The applicator has received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both patients and physicians.

    How does it Work?

    CoolMini is designed to freeze away unwanted double chin fat. The technology is based upon the research of Harvard scientists who developed a unique cooling process to isolate and freeze targeted fat cells, which respond quickly to cold temperature. The frozen fat cells gradually die and disintegrate completely. They will be reduced from the body in the natural metabolic process, revealing slimmer and sculpted contours in the submental neck area.
    In case of under chin fat reduction, the treatment provider may be able to deliver optimal outcomes in about two to three treatment sessions spaced one month apart from each other. The patient will be able to notice improvement in about three weeks, but the most dramatic outcomes can be seen in about two to three months. The process is non-surgical, enabling the patient to resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment.
    Experienced plastic surgeons at MBody receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg and nearby areas for CoolMini and various other procedures.

    Safety and Efficacy

    One of the key advantages of CoolMini neck fat reduction procedure is that it avoids all the risks and complications that are typically associated with a cosmetic surgery procedure. The FDA clearance for CoolMini is based on data from a pivotal clinical trial involving 60 male and female patients in the age group of 22 to 65 years. Each of the patients received one to two treatments in the area below the chin, each six weeks apart. An average of 20 percent fat reduction was achieved in this trial.
    No significant adverse events were reported and patients experienced little to no downtime or discomfort. These findings make CoolMini neck fat reduction an ideal procedure for busy moms, working people, and all others who want to avoid plastic surgery, but seek a more sculpted neck and chin appearance.
