If you have trouble getting your problem areas to respond to diet and exercise, but are nervous about going under local anesthesia for treatments, you are not alone. But you’re also not out of luck. Believe it or not, there are new FDA-approved non-surgical options to provide the results you are looking for.

What?!!! Getting rid of stubborn areas with no surgery? No anesthesia? No downtime? Could it be true? We asked our friends at Charlotte Plastic Surgery to give us the scoop. Read on to hear what they say about two poplar treatment options, CoolSculpting™ and Kybella™.

CoolSculpting™

This fat freezing treatment applies controlled cooling to eliminate areas of stubborn unwanted fat that seem impossible to remove through diet and exercise, like the belly and thighs. Patients will typically see results as early as three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic results between three and four months.

During the actual treatment, the CoolSculpting device is positioned on the body to apply controlled cooling, pinpointing fat cells under the skin and crystallizing them before they die. Then the body gradually processes and removes these dead cells, leaving a more contoured body.

Charlotte Plastic Surgery was one of the first practices in the nation to offer Kybella™ and Dr. Finical serves as an instructor to other practices in safe and skillful injection.

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, commonly known as “double chin”. This is a permanent solution and many patients experience an improved chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart.
