CHIN LIPOSUCTION

The ‘double chin’, also known as submental fat, can appear on almost anyone, no matter their weight or build. Patients may feel frustrated when taking photos and selfies when this area protrudes more than they would like. While exercise and diet may do little to reduce this stubborn area, chin liposuction is a minimally invasive technique designed to contour the lower face, chin and neck. Through a strategically placed tiny incision, Dr. Ravi will insert a thin, state-of-the-art cannula or hollow tube to vacuum away the unwanted fat to sculpt the chin and jawline. His technique can successfully contour the jawline, smooth the neck, and bring balance and symmetry to the facial features. Dr. Ravi takes care to place his liposuction incisions in a well-hidden area and his innovative technique means little chance for scarring. As long as your wright is maintained, the targeted fat cells will not return so the benefits of chin liposuction can last for years to come. If in addition to submental fat, a patient is struggling with lax skin along the jawline, Dr. Ravi may recommend combining chin liposuction with FaceTite or Morpheus8 for optimal results. Chin liposuction can be performed under anesthesia or while you are awake.


FACETITE

FaceTite by InMode is a minimally invasive procedure, in-office procedure for tightening lax skin along the lower face, jawline, chin and entire neck. With age and weight fluctuations,skin unfortunately loses its youthful elasticity, ultimatelysagging and creating a web of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Genetics and aging play an inescapable role in tissue quality, while years of weight fluctuations and environmental factors compound the formation of facial lines and creases. To fight the early signs of aging, FaceTite uses radiofrequency (heat) energy to tighten, smooth, and lift the skin. An immediate improvement in facial contours can be seen. Additionally, the treatment stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for results that continue to improve for up to a year and results that can last for many years. FaceTite is combined with liposuction to remove submental and jawline fat. FaceTite offers excellent results and optimal facial rejuvenation for those who are good candidates.If you are looking to improve your appearance without the anesthesia, lengthy recovery, or scarring associated with a face lift or neck lift surgery, FaceTite may be the right treatment for your needs. Downtime is typically only 2 to 3 days with patients returning to normal activity afterwards.


MORPHEUS8

Morpheus8 is an exciting, noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment, using fractional radiofrequency energy to brighten, restore and tighten skin. The in-office radiofrequency microneedlingtreatment only takes a few minutes to uses a compact series of micro-needles to gently penetratethe top layer of the dermis. Without the need toablate a large area of skin, Morpheus8 can successfully direct its warm radiofrequencywaves deep under the skin, kick-starting the body’s natural production of elastin and collagen. The treatment canresurface and exfoliate dry, damaged tissue, offering immediately boosting tone and texture. As pore size decreases and areas of hyperpigmentation fade, the skin will look brighter and firmer. Morpheus8 can also be used to improve the appearance of scarring from surgery and acne, as well as stretch marks.Morpheus8 can improve skin almost anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and torso.As radiofrequency heating is color-blind, the treatment is completely safe for all skin types and ethnicities. Plus, with a customizable energy level, Morpheus8 can be tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. Between three and six Morpheus8 sessions may be required for maximum results, along with maintenance treatments. Dr. Ravi and Dr. Gopathi can perform the treatment alone or use it in combination with other treatments, such as FaceTite, facial fat transfer, or chin liposuction for optimal facial rejuvenation.
