Most people struggle with stubborn pockets of fat in some place on the body, such as a double chin, armpit bulge, belly pooch, love handles, banana roll and many more. Unfortunately, these pesky fat collections may not resolve even with the strictest of diets and exercise plans. This can be extremely frustrating for patients who have implemented these lifestyle changes to improve their overall physical appearance and emotional well-being, without the success they hoped for. Fortunately, advances in technology have led to the invention of non-surgical, FDA-approved fat reduction therapies that can help tackle this issue.

truSculpt iD is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy that provides clinically-proven results tailored to your personal aesthetic goals. This newcomer to the body sculpting market far outpaces its predecessors CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®, as multiple research studies have demonstrated that truSculpt iD destroys a greater percentage of fat cells in a shorter period of time than these competing devices. Always pursuing the best possible treatment options for his patients, Dr. Khorasani constantly invests in acquiring and mastering the latest technologies. Consequently, he has extensively studied and evaluated truSculpt iD’s mechanism, efficacy, and clinical technique to provide you with optimized, personalized results.
Kybella®, or deoxycholic acid, is another FDA-approved and non-invasive therapy that can help reduce unwanted collections of fat. This injectable therapy is directly administered to the target areas and dissolves unwanted fat under the skin in a matter of minutes. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our body and is an important component of the fluid excreted via the biliary system during digestion. It helps our body with dissolving fatty acids after the ingestion of a high-fat meal. The fat-melting powers of Kybella are FDA-approved to specifically treat a double chin; however, Dr. Khorasani’s commitment to advancing therapeutic options available to his patients has led to his pioneering work in using Kybella off-label to successfully treat other problem sites as well. As such, Dr. Khorasani is able to work with your specific health profile and aesthetic goals to create a non-invasive treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Armed with an arsenal of non-invasive fat reduction treatments, Dr. Khorasani and his staff can help you banish unwanted fat that refuses to budge. These therapies can also be used to help fine-tune previously attempted body contouring procedures to achieve an ideal level of symmetry. Regardless of your particular aesthetic objective, we will work with you as a team to transform your goals into reality.
Although excess fat in these areas is frequently attributed to weight gain, there are many other factors that can cause these problems. Genetics is one such culprit, along with the natural aging process. Even your posture can contribute to developing these conditions! Since the causes of these unwanted fat pockets are multifactorial, diet and exercise may not be enough to eliminate them entirely.
truSculpt iD is an innovative and non-invasive fat reduction treatment that harnesses monopolar radiofrequency energy to melt fat that is sandwiched between the skin and muscle layers. Using truSculpt iD’s proprietary technology, heat is evenly distributed to the entire fat layer being treated while simultaneously protecting your skin’s surface. A single 15-minute treatment, on average, destroys approximately 24% of your fat cells in the target area.
Aside from its clinically-proven efficacy, truSculpt iD treatments are tailored to the needs of each patient. Six individual handpieces allow for treatment that is customized to the individual curves of your body and, if desired, targeting multiple areas simultaneously. Efficient targeting of the radiofrequency energy leads to treatments that are shorter in duration and more comfortable than other body sculpting devices like CoolSculpt or SculpSure. Patients can, therefore, treat their love handles, belly pooch or banana rolls all in one short, comfortable session with minimal to no downtime. Dr. Khorasani has experience working with both the CoolSculpt and Sculpsure devices and has come to the conclusion that truSculpt iD may be more effective and is reported to be more tolerable than these older competitors.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment used to dissolve fat beneath the skin’s surface. The medication first received approval in 2015 and has since become a staple of modern cosmetic practices. The main active ingredient in Kybella is a naturally occuring compound in our body called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid plays a major role in our body’s ability to dissolve fatty acids after the ingestion of a high-fat meal. This same molecule also has the ability to dissolve fat cells and their contents in other parts of the body. In addition to the immediate liquefaction of fat, Kybella also helps to prevent future accumulation of fat by destroying the cellular storage sites in the areas that are targeted.
During your treatment visit, Dr. Khorasani will carefully mark the areas to be treated and overlay it with a grid-like patterned stencil. After numbing the treatment zone, each section of the grid will receive a small injection of Kybella directly into the fat cells. The number of injections per treatment varies according to the target area, but typically ranges from twenty to thirty injections. Most patients will require two to five treatments, spaced six weeks apart, for optimal results. Fortunately, the pay-off from these injections is steep, as once the fat is removed, you will remain fat-pocket free forever.
