Submental fullness, also known as a “double chin” represents excess fat tissue in the upper portion of the neck, just below the chin and jawline.  Prominence of tissue in this region detracts from facial balance, and can cause an older and heavier appearance of the neck.  Submittal fullness is a constant source of concern among patients, is often resistant to diet and weight loss, and has traditionally been very difficult to treat without surgery.  However, we now have an exciting new nonsurgical treatment that can reduce submental fullness, and decrease or eliminate the appearance of a “double chin.”

Kybella, manufactured by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat.  It is composed of deoxycholic acid, which causes fat cell breakdown, and has been shown to safely and effectively decrease the amount and appearance of submental fat in as few as 2 treatments.  Safe and effective treatments were demonstrated in almost 20 studies, including 2,600 patients.

Kybella treatments are performed in the office by Dr. Ridha, take about 15-20 minutes, and are performed with a local anesthetic, making the treatment itself relatively painless.  Results can be seen as soon as a month after treatment, and follow-up treatments are performed at 1-2 month intervals following the initial injections to maximize the results.

While not everyone with neck laxity or tissue excess is a candidate, many patients will benefit from these treatments, and should be very pleased with the results.  If you or someone you know is concerned by fulness under the chin, call the office and schedule your complimentary consultation with Dr. Ridha, and find out if Kybella is right for you! (518) 306-5466

While it may not bother some, many patients are concerned with signs of aging that they notice in their hands.  This is natural, as we often use our hands to communicate, and they are constantly in our sight and that of others, with whom we interact. As we age, soft tissue atrophy is a natural phenomenon, and in the hands, volume loss often manifests significantly, giving a skeletonized, hollowed-out appearance.  Beginning this September, we will be offering hand rejuvenation treatments in the office using Radiesse, one of our most popular injectable fillers. Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation to correct volume loss in the hands.  Radiesse restores volume to the hands while providing smooth, natural-looking results that can be seen immediately and can last up to 1 year!

Treatments are performed By Dr. Ridha in the office, with a topical anesthetic, and treatment takes only a few minutes.  The additional volume will provide a pleasing, more youthful appearance.  For patients who notice skin changes associated with their volume loss, the addition of IPL treatments to remove unwanted sun damage and dyschromia can further improve a youthful appearance of the hands.  Call the office for more information, or to schedule your consultation with Dr. Ridha, and find out if this treatment is for you! 518.306.5466

One of the most common concerns among the patients we see in our office are about typical signs of facial aging: skin laxity, deflation of the cheeks, descent of the midfacial tissues, increasingly prominent nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and jowling.  One of the biggest trends that many plastic surgeons have noted around the country is that more patients are seeking cosmetic improvement and facial rejuvenation without having to undergo surgery.  While surgical face and neck lifting remain the gold standard for giving the most long-term improvement for signs of facial aging, the range of minimally invasive treatments has improved exponentially over the last several years.  It has been well established that volume loss and tissue descent are the main factors that contribute to signs of facial aging.  For patients who would like an improvement in the appearance of the face, the use of injectable fillers, many of which are composed of hyaluronic acid gels, can be used to replenish the missing volume, and provide a lift to sagging tissues in the cheeks, midface, and lower face.  These injectable filler treatments are often termed a “liquid facelift,” and have become extremely popular over the last several years.

A “liquid facelift” treatment typically consists of injecting fillers into the face in different planes.  Longer acting fillers are injected deeply, to elevate the cheek and mid facial tissues, as well as to smooth the appearance of jowls.  Mid-layer fillers can then be placed into tissue folds like the nasolabial folds or marionette lines, and more superficial fillers can be placed into finer lines and wrinkles.  The treatment is often accompanied by Botox injections for the upper third of the face.  The net result can be very impressive: Patient’s often look refreshed and more youthful, without a “fake” or “done” appearance.  Skin improvement procedures, like laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and use of clinical grade skin care products further enhance the result, by improving the quality and tightness of the skin.

While the results are temporary, some of the fillers can last a significant period of time (up to a couple of years) and patients who undergo these treatments are able to avoid downtime, as well as some of the potential unwanted and at times permanent side effects that may accompany surgery.  We have found that many of our patients have been very pleased with filler treatments, and have used them in conjunction with, and in many cases instead of undergoing surgery.  If you desire a more youthful appearance, and are hesitant to undergo surgery, then contact our office to schedule your consultation, and find out if a liquid facelift is for you! 518.306.5466

It is not uncommon for patients who have undergone abdominal surgery to experience distortion, or in some cases complete destruction or removal of the umbilicus, or belly button.  This is especially common for patients who undergo multiple complicated abdominal surgeries, or who have been treated for umbilical or ventral hernias.  In some cases, the belly button is free-floating, without a good central attachment to the abdominal wall, whereas in other patients, the belly button may be stretched out, tightened and small, or completely absent.  Many patients are also concerned by the appearance of a protruding umbilicus, or “outie.”  As any patient who has suffered from one of these conditions would say, the presence of an abnormal or absent belly button can be quite distressing. and disfiguring of the overall appearance of the abdomen.

Luckily, there is a procedure available to improve the appearance of a distorted belly button, and restore a natural appearance to the abdomen. Umbilicolasty is a procedure which aims to re-create a natural-appearing belly button, and provide a more natural appearance for the abdomen.  The procedure uses the tissues that are in the region of the belly button, and can be performed as part of a tummy tuck, or by itself as a small outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.  The restoration of a natural contour and appearance of the belly button is one that patients have found very pleasing.  If you or someone you know is concerned by a distorted belly button, or would like to have an “outie” belly button moved inward, call the office to schedule your consultation, and Dr. Ridha will review the options, and help restore a natural appearance to the abdomen.
