The varied choices for removing fat without surgery are discussed by two leading dermatologists
Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/17/2016 -- Fat removal choices that did not involve surgery were rather limited until recently. However, a series of new developments in non-surgical, non-invasive fat removal have provided a choice of procedures for patients to consider. The problem now is which is the most suitable for a patient to consider for getting rid of their unwanted fat.
Several non-surgical fat removal techniques are discussed on this week's (15Feb16) episode of Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on webtalkradio.net. Leading board certified dermatologist Dr Debra Jaliman, from her Fifth Avenue, New York City practice, talks with show host, Edmonton cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka.
In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Jaliman begin with a discussion about Kybella, a recently FDA approved injection which dissolves fat in the 'double chin' area. They discuss the benefits of this product, and who are, and who are not, ideal candidates for treatment with it. Dr Jaliman then talks about two pieces of equipment that she has been using to get rid of fat for patients. The CoolMini which freezes the fat, and Vanquish which heats the fat with radio frequency. They also mention SculpSure which is a laser system to melt fat away, which they are excited about but have yet to try. SculpSure was the subject of an episode of this show in January 2016.
In the second half of the show, the two doctors talk in depth about the use of injectable dermal fillers and their role in anti-aging & facial rejuvenation treatments. They highlight the importance of selecting an experienced, highly trained physician for fillers, with both the technical excellence and artistic ability to create natural looking results, and they both share stories of problems caused by inadequately trained people who do not know what to do when complications arise.
