For some people, a double chin may be a genetic fact of life, in that they may be predisposed to storing fat around the jawline. If you consider yourself one of those people, it may be a frustrating experience to constantly eat healthy and work out without seeing visible results. Fortunately, there are a number of cosmetic solutions that can help minimize the appearance of a double chin…
Including SculpSure body contouring at the Boston practices of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty!
Candidates For SculpSure
Ideal candidates for the SculpSure laser treatment are healthy individuals who are close to their ideal weight and have good skin laxity. If you are looking for a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of your double chin, Sculpsure is a terrific solution.
Treatments take about 25 minutes each; most patients will need 2 procedures done at 6-8 weeks apart to see ideal results.
For the past few years, SculpSure has been used as an FDA-approved solution for excess fat around the abdomen, thighs, and flanks. This non-invasive technology uses laser heat energy to target and destroy fat cells in just minutes, leaving patients with a more contoured appearance. SculpSure has just been approved by the FDA for use on submental fat, which is located underneath the chin and around the jawline.
As the Medical Director for Cynosure – the makers of SculpSure – Dr. Doherty has been using SculpSure for several years to treat excess body fat in healthy patients with good skin laxity. In fact, Dr. Doherty was one of the principal investigators for SculpSure’s FDA approval process, making him an undisputed expert in using this laser technology to eliminate a double chin.
After treatment with SculpSure for double chin, the destroyed fat cells will naturally be eliminated from your body. This process takes about 6 weeks, which is when results will be visible.
Ready to say goodbye to your double chin? Schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty at his plastic surgery practices in downtown Boston (Newbury Street) or in Brookline, MA.
In addition to SculpSure for body contouring, Dr. Doherty also offers Kybella and liposuction procedures to treat the double chin area.
