No More Turkey Neck

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, the holiday preparations are under way. Most of us are looking forward to a delicious turkey meal. However positive the association with Thanksgiving dinner may be, that fondness doesn’t extend to the cosmetic issue that many deal with called “turkey neck.” That flabby fat and skin under the chin is most unwelcome. But don’t worry, you can easily eliminate the submental (under chin) bulge without missing any of the holiday festivities, including that scrumptious Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s how… KYBELLA.

What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to melt away the fat under the chin. The injection of molecules that naturally occur in the body, deoxycholic acid, help the body break down and absorb dietary fat. KYBELLA destroys enough fat cells in the injection site to 
noticeably contour under the chin. It minimizes the appearance of the “double chin” without surgery, which means you don’t miss out on any holiday fun.

What kind of results can you get?

A double chin is an issue that causes dissatisfaction in facial profile for many people. Whether it’s a result of genetics, weight gain or loss, double chins are so hard to get rid of, even with diet and exercise. This is a feature many people hate seeing in their photos, but surgery just isn’t an option this time of year. Fortunately, this is the perfect time of year for KYBELLA. It gets amazing results without any downtime.

After a full KYBELLA treatment, 79% of patients were satisfied with the reduction of their double chin. After receiving treatments, a survey of 1,600 patients, reported that the majority felt happier and that their new chin profile looked younger.

Treatments are typically 4 to 6 weeks apart. It takes approximately 6 weeks to see the results of the fat cells being destroyed and eliminated by the body. Depending on the amount of submental fullness, your treatment schedule can range from 2 to 4 injections.

Is there any downtime?

You can get a KYBELLA treatment and continue with your day. Typically there is some swelling and bruising at the injection site, but another reason this is the perfect time of year for KYBELLA is that you can easily and fashionably cover that with a scarf or turtleneck. It is a series of injections, so you don’t have to be concerned about any recovery, bandages or incisions. Fall and winter months are the perfect time of year, even in the midst of the holidays.

Refine and define your profile this holiday season without any surgery or downtime. With the chilly weather wardrobe, this is the perfect time to get started with KYBELLA to get rid of that turkey neck and double chin.

Thanksgiving, Benefits of Gratitude,Turkey Neck…not on your neck and Males who get Fat Grafting

THANKSGIVING is a wonderful time for us to give thanks…and I want to thank each of you, our patients, for all you’ve done to help us make DAVinci such a special place. We appreciate each of you a Happy Thanksgiving and all the best in life.

So enjoy the time with family and friends, and count your blessings because…

An ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE…has been scientifically proven to produce many incredible benefits!  Gratitude actually improves blood pressure, stress, depression and reduces risk of developing eating disorders.  Gratitude is associated with improved mood, sense of well being, interpersonal relationships, physical health, weight loss, cardio health, improved immune health and longevity.  So, be thankful for what you have, don’t worry about what you don’t have…and please share the good news with your loved ones and friends.

Ageing and Turkey Neck…As we age we develop a “turkey neck,”
That’s the loose sagging skin under your chin that looks just like turkey waddle.  I do Necklift and Neck contouring with Liposuction to get rid of this unsightly, unwelcome problem.  There’s still time to get your neck contoured before Christmas.

FAT GRAFTING…is fabulous for restoring lost volume in areas such as the cheeks, hands, nasolabial folds and other sagging places.  It’s safe and long lasting.  Many people today prefer it over fillers because we use your own body fat and transfer it to needy areas.  There is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction…because it’s your own natural product.

FAT TRANSFER and the MALE MODEL LOOK…YES more men are doing youth rejuvenating procedures for career benefits and just because the Baby Boomers want to look their best always.

More of today’s men are seeking ways to look healthy, fit, trim and sculpted. They call it “The Male Model Look.” Concerning the face, It involves accentuating some or all of the skeletal highlights of the face.  Areas such as the brow bones, cheeks, chin and jaw angles/jawline.  Fat Grafting/Fat Transfer/Fat Injections (all the same) are fabulous for restoring these deficient areas. Many guys also have a “Nose Job” for ultimate results.

MEN and BROTOX (Botox)   Over 25% of my Botox patients are men.  West Coast doctors report that 50% of their Botox patients are men. In addition to Fat Grafting, Botox is the leading injectable today…and when done by an “Expert Injector” the results are wonderful.  Men like it because they want fast, no downtime results, without everybody knowing.  They don’t mind aging…but they hate the droopiness, jowls, the fat neck etc. Fat Grafting and Botox are two proven ways to deal with these issues.

EXPERT INJECTORS  are Board Certified Surgeons, Facial Plastic surgeons, Dermatologists and Oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated due diligence for patient safety, reliable results and consumer education.  Expert Injectors have specialized training in the procedure and products and are specifically qualified to perform the injections.  I am a qualified Expert Injector….please don’t entrust your face to a non expert.

OK…this blog has been bits n pieces of information I’ve wanted to get to you before the year ends…and ideas for helping you keep your best face forward.

COUPLES SURGERY and HOW MEN and WOMEN AGE DIFFERENTLY

COUPLES  ANTI AGING PROCEDURES ARE THE NORM TODAY... Yes men and women in committed relationships are aging together and many of them are choosing to “age more youthfully” by having cosmetic procedures together.  But, men and women do “age” differently so different procedures are needed to address those concerns.  Facial Aging is the most visible in both genders.  Men, however, are more likely to develop deep wrinkles in their forehead and to experience vanishing chins.  Women typically see finer lines on the face around the eyes (Crow’s Feet) or mouth (laugh lines).  Women also experience more sagging skin around the neck (turkey neck).  So, with the rise in Couples Surgery over the past decade, it’s important for couples to have their own individual consultation to determine their best anti aging options. For example, both men and women can be treated with Botox (Brotox) or soft tissue filler, but the locations for treatment may differ depending upon the location of those facial wrinkles.  For Men with receding chins, Implants are very effective while women can lose their Turkey Necks with a Necklift. shutterstock_37574734

Going in together for procedures is great and encouraging to each other…so come in together and let’s talk!

NICKNAMES for BODY CHANGES

Ever heard of Bingo Wings, Muffin Top or Turkey Neck (I just gave you that one!). Well, these are the current nicknames for a few of today’s age related changes.  Bingo Wings refer to the flabby, sagging skin underneath the upper arms that often occurs with aging.  An Arm Lift safely and effectively makes this go away restoring youthful upper arms again!  Muffin Top is the name given to that overhanging skin around the waist after you’ve forced yourself into a slim fitting pair of jeans. This is easily corrected with liposuction and a Tummy Tuck to remove excess fat and sagging skin.  Turkey Neck or Turkey Waddle is the condition of excess, sagging skin under the chin and around the neck that resembles the red turkey waddle.  A NeckLift usually combined with FaceLift remedies this and takes years of aging off the face and neck.  Again, Couples are choosing to address these concerns together in order to “age more youthfully.”

SCENARIOS THAT PROMPT THE DESIRE FOR ANTI AGING PROCEDURES:  When you meet someone who has recently undergone a plastic surgery or non surgery procedure, he or she will most likely be able to share their “Aha moment…”  That’s the moment it became crystal clear to them they made the right choice. Men and women choose age defying cosmetic procedures for various reasons.  Here are just a few they’ve shared with me:   1) How old do you think I am?  When an energetic 40 year old has a co worker tell him he looks “50ish” that can send a man flying into my office!  2)  Post Baby Blues…Women are having Mommy Makeovers to get back into shape sooner or for the first time ever!   3)  Social Media..Social Media realizations have made FaceBook FaceLifts popular today!   4)  Major Life Changes/Career Changes can help put things into perspective.

DON’T LIKE WHAT YOU’RE SEEING IN YOUR MIRROR?  LET’S TALK SOON.
