What a fantastic experience. Michelle Green MD- i think the MD stands for Magical Doctor, or even Magnificent Doctor. From the moment you walk into her office you feel comfortable and welcome- and please don't be alarmed by the ritzy Upper East side address either, all the staff as well as the doctor herself have no pretension whatsoever, they all have great senses of humor and this certainly puts you at ease (which was great for me as i was a bit apprehensive about having treatment done). I consider myself a fit guy, but i have never been able to get rid of a slight double chin, no matter how hard i worked at the gym or changing my diet. I was always sure it was a genetic fat deposit. The doctor presented me with many options as to how my problem might be solved- i definitely didn't want to have a face lift or anything too extreme. I was recommended two procedures, Cool Sculpting- which now has a mini attachment that allows breaking up of chin fat, and also Kybella which are small injections that 'dissolve' the reluctant fat cells. I liked the fact that both procedures were quick, and alot cheaper than any type of surgery. We decided on Cool Sculpting- it's like getting a vacuum cleaner under your chin that freezes the stubborn fat cells. The procedure took 45 mins, and there was only mild discomfort (a slight cold feeling in the back of the neck that fades away quickly when the chin area got numb). The nurses/assistants warned me that this might happen and some other possible scenarios that i might expect- so when it did occur i was pretty relaxed about it, and it faded away just as they had described. I had very little redness and or any pain in the days following the procedure, although i had read online that this was a possibility. Apparently the results take 8 weeks to take effect, but my wife noticed today after only a week or so that my little chin friend has receded a bit already. So i am very excited to see the results in a few weeks time. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Green and her staff, i almost felt like i was part of the family, although only in there briefly.
They definitely had the treatments available that i was looking for, and i loved that there were different options. It seemed to me that there were many dermatological areas they specialized in, so the way they handled my procedure i would highly recommend meeting for a consultation at least so Dr Green might suggest options to deal with the issues you may be facing.
Hope this review helps!
