In the world of luxury and aesthetic surgery, the wintertime can be the busiest time of year. The reason is that the colder months allow for a prolonged downtime, which many of the treatments require when addressing specific aesthetic concerns. For Haute Beauty expert Dr. Sachin Shridharani's practice, he has noticed that the top 3 winter aesthetic concerns are as follows: abdominal laxity, cellulite and submental fullness. To address each one, Dr. Shridharani lists both the concern with the solution. Here's what he had to say:

1. Concern: Abdominal laxity

Solution: TubelessTuck℠

TubelessTuck℠ is a drainless surgical technique championed by Dr. Shridharani for nearly a decade that is most often performed on women who have had their abdominal muscles stretched from pregnancy or weight gain or after major weight loss. An essential component of the mommy makeover, the skin and extra fat are removed during the TubelessTuck℠. The result is an improved and flat tummy. By utilizing the TubelessTuck℠ surgical technique, Dr. Shridharani is able to decrease the risk of fluid accumulation without using drains.

2. Concern: Cellulite

Solution: QWO

QWO is the world’s first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of cellulite. It is normally injected in the buttocks and posterior thigh. As a foremost authority, Dr. Shridharani uses QWO to enzymatically disrupt the fibrous septae responsible for creating cellulite, resulting in a smoother appearance of the treated skin. As QWO may take multiple treatments to achieve optimal results and take at least a few weeks to fully develop, many of our patients come in for treatment in the winter so they can achieve their ideal, smoothed-out beach bod by springtime.

3. Concern: Submental fullness

Solution: Surgery in a Syringe℠ with Kybella

Dr. Shridharani’s signature non-surgical technique with Kybella can permanently reduce the "double chin," as well as many other unwanted pockets of fat in the body. Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2015 to destroy subcutaneous fat cells accumulating under the chin, creating the appearance of a double chin. During the pandemic, many of our patients have taken advantage of the mask mandate to cover up swelling while they recover from their Kybella treatments. Dr. Shridharani is sought out for his experience having performed this treatment over 4,000 times.
