Until further notice, the only way to remove neck fat is with a surgical procedure. Though they can be performed with local anesthesia, are relatively low risk, and have a fast recovery, these procedures are certainly surgery.
Dr. Teitelbaum has been doing research on a promising new drug that is being tested for its ability to safely reduce neck fat. Though his impression is that it is an excellent product, until a large number of cases are thoroughly evaluated, the jury remains out.
In any case, this will not be available until at least 2015 after going through a rigorous process with the FDA. As of now there are no more opportunities for patient participation, but if that changes this site will be updated.
We’re Still Open… well, sort of.
While we have not resumed regularly scheduled office hours, Vicki and Dr. Teitelbaum are nearby and available for past and current patients at 310.315.1121.
While we are all sheltering at home, Dr. Teitelbaum is offering everyone the same phone and video consultations he has always done for out-of-town patients. He expects to be operating again soon.
