Some men and women who would like to enhance their facial contours aren’t interested in undergoing surgery, can’t take time away from their busy schedule for a lengthy recovery period or simply don’t require surgical enhancement. For patients interested in seeing cosmetic improvements without surgery, a variety of minimally invasive options are available.
Dr. Lee B. Daniel is best known as a top plastic surgeon, but he’s also highly knowledgeable in nonsurgical facial enhancement. Together with his team of medical professionals at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Daniel has helped thousands of men and women achieve their goals.

We offer Kybella™, an innovative, FDA-approved treatment that can reduce moderate to severe fat deposits under your chin. Imagine reducing your double chin without surgery! Treatments take only a few minutes. Typically you will see your best results after 2 to 6 appointments.
Kybella™ double chin treatment is a great choice for men or women who are bothered by stubborn pockets of fat under their chin. During the treatment, tiny needles containing deoxycholic acid are inserted into the fat deposits beneath the jawline. This chemical destroys unwanted fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue, gradually reducing the fat deposits that create the appearance of a double chin.

During nonsurgical nose reshaping, Dr. Daniel injects dermal fillers directly into the nose. Depending on the type of filler used, the results can last many months before requiring a touch-up. Sometimes, results can last up to 2 years depending on the area and the products used. A nonsurgical nose job can be used to resolve a number of issues:
Improve the appearance of a broken or bent bridge
Enhance the tip of the nose
Refine the results of a previous nose surgery
Puffy bags or a loss of volume under the eyes can also be improved without surgery in the right candidates. To treat this condition, Dr. Daniel uses a tiny needle to inject dermal fillers directly above the orbital bone under the eyes. Through multiple, precise injections and mild massaging of the area, Dr. Daniel can fill the depressed areas under the eyes, reducing the appearance of under-eye bags and creating a more youthful, rejuvenated look.
Dr. Daniel also uses injectables to treat wrinkles on the sides of the eyes, sometimes more commonly referred to as “crow’s feet.” These periorbital lines generally are caused by repeated facial movement while smiling or squinting, and can be treated very effectively with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
One of the best advantages to nonsurgical enhancement is that there is little to no downtime required. Dermal fillers are normally painless and are typically applied without any anesthesia. Some patients experience mild bruising or swelling in the treatment area, but both should resolve within a few days.
The results for nonsurgical facial enhancement using dermal fillers are immediate. However, the results from some fillers can be seen more quickly than others, and new contours may take a few days to fully develop and settle. Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months depending on the type of filler used and the amount.
Following your nonsurgical facial enhancement, you should notice improved facial contours that balance your overall appearance. If you’ve undergone nonsurgical nose reshaping, your nose should have an enhanced profile that harmonizes better with your other facial features. If you’ve had a nonsurgical under-eye treatment, you should have more facial volume above the cheeks, resulting in a reduced appearance of under-eye bags and a younger, revitalized look. Non-surgical treatment of crow’s feet and forehead lines results in a smoother skin tone.

A double chin, also known as submental fullness, affects many men and women. Anyone who is bothered by submental fullness may be a candidate for Kybella™ treatments. The best candidates for Kybella™ double chin treatment are those with realistic expectations and in overall good health. You should also check in with your physician and make sure that Kybella™ won’t interfere with any other medications you may be taking.
Kybella™ is the only FDA-approved injection that is designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin. The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, which breaks down dietary fat so that your body can absorb and eliminate it through its natural processes. Kybella™ is injected directly into the treatment area, preventing the cells in and around your chin from storing fat.
Most people who get double chin treatment benefit from multiple treatments to get the best results. The exact number of treatments you will need depends on your current chin profile and your goal results. Most people interested in improving a double chin benefit from 2 to 6 treatments spaced about one month apart.
Like Kybella™, liposuction can also be used to minimize a double chin. The primary difference between the two treatments is that liposuction is surgical while Kybella™ is nonsurgical. Nonsurgical treatments offer the benefit of no scarring and minimal downtime. Liposuction, on the other hand, requires small incisions in the treatment area and can result in temporary swelling and a recovery period. During your consultation, Dr. Daniel will describe the advantages of each option in detail and let you know if he thinks you may be a better candidate for either liposuction or Kybella™.
Your final Kybella™ results should develop within about 4 to 6 weeks following your last treatment. Some minor swelling and bruising may occur following each session and fade in a few days. Kybella™ results are intended to be long-lasting, so you can plan to enjoy improved chin and neck definition for many years to come.
