Say ‘Goodbye’ to Your Double Chin! 

KYBELLA™ is all the rage right now, but as with any trending new procedure or treatment, we first wanted to take a careful look at it to ensure it offers only the best results.  Here is what we found:

  • What is KYBELLA? It is a non-surgical injectable solution used for reducing the fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.” The solution contains a chemical that naturally occurs within our bodies to eat away dietary fat. KYBELLA harnesses that chemical to kill fat cells under the chin.
  • Who is a candidate? Anyone who is 18 years of age or older, is in good health, and is frustrated with a double chin is a candidate.
  • Are there any side effects? The most common side effects are common and expected — minor soreness and swelling at the site of the injection.

KYBELLA passed our evaluation, and we’re loving the beautiful results that we have seen with this non-surgical treatment. Patients love that it serves as an alternative to liposuction.  Science in the name of beauty has once again created a phenomenal product that allows patients to look and feel their best.

If KYBELLA sounds like something you would be interested in learning more about, we will be delighted to provide more information about this treatment as it becomes publicly available to us.

Breast Augmentation 101

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, breast augmentation was the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed in 2014, and we predict 2015 to bring similar stats both nationally and right here in our Toledo practice.

Women decide to undergo breast augmentation for a variety of reasons; maybe they lost volume after having kids or losing weight, or their breasts were always undersized. But they all have the same end results in mind — to feel more confident about their breasts.

Dr. Colville is here to help guide you through your breast augmentation journey. He is proud to offer a variety of implant types, including saline and silicone from Allergan®, MENTOR®, and Sientra®, as well as different incision options to help you meet your specific goals.

He also offers all of his patients a glimpse of what they can expect their results to look like by using the VECTRA® 3-D imaging System. This system now allows patients to view their 3-D consultation in the privacy of their own home.

Dr. Colville’s ultimate goal is to design a plan accommodating your wishes in the most aesthetically pleasing manner possible.
