Don’t Settle for Stubborn Fat

People across the country struggle with pockets of stubborn fat. While eating right and exercising are both incredibly important for a healthy lifestyle, sometimes you just can’t seem to lose some of that excess fat no matter what you do. Thankfully, non-invasive and minimally invasive fat reduction procedures can help you achieve the body of your dreams in a safe and effective way. 

What Causes Excess Fat?

Your body fat proportions are decided largely by your genetics. Depending on your natural body shape, pockets of fat can be particularly stubborn in different areas of your body. Many people tend to carry it in their midsection, hips, thighs, or under their chin

Excess fat can contribute to self-consciousness, and it’s normal not to be happy with the shape of your body. The amount of fat you have in a particular area often has to do with genetics, which is totally out of your control. A balanced diet and regular exercise are important for your health but are not always enough to achieve your body goals, which is where a fat reduction treatment comes in.

What Treatments are Available for Excess Fat?

There are multiple options to reduce pockets of unwanted fat and contour your body. Depending on your goals and desired amount of fat reduction, one treatment may be recommended over another. 

Dr. Dohner and his team at New York Skin & Vein offer CoolSculpting® Elite for reducing bulges of excess fat on the body. This treatment works by using controlled cooling to bring stubborn fat down to freezing temperatures that will harm the fat cells but not other tissues. This destroys the fat cells, which are filtered out naturally by the body. The result is a more contoured, toned look. 

If you want to remove stubborn fat under your chin, KYBELLA® injections use deoxycholic acid to dissolve submental fat cells and improve the contour of your neck. Neck Liposuction along with ThermiTight can remove the fat under your chin and neck AND tighten the skin in a single treatment. This combination can also be used on the abdomen, love handles, and thighs. 

Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where a small incision is made in the skin, and a thin tube called a cannula is inserted into the fat layer. The cannula is then used to break up and suction out excess fat cells.

What Results Will I See?*

When you choose a fat reduction treatment at New York Skin & Vein, you can expect to see a visible fat reduction, inches lost from your abdomen, hips or thighs, toning in certain areas, or a reduced double chin.

When you will see results will vary depending on how much excess fat you’re trying to lose and how your cells and tissue respond to treatments. 

Is There Any Downtime?*

There is no downtime with non-surgical fat reduction treatments. However, you may experience temporary swelling, but this will resolve after a few days. You should be able to resume your normal routine right away. Minimally invasive treatments may require a small amount of downtime.
