Dr. Todd Hobgood, certificated in Head & Neck and Facial Plastics, has added Kybella® to his medical and surgical expertise. Technically known as deoxycholic acid or previously as ATX-101, Kybella® is a newly approved FDA injectable medication used as a non-surgical alternative for reduction of fat below the chin (aka the “double chin”). Medication side effects are minimal and transient. Medication approval came after multi-clinic trials in over 1600 patients demonstrated significant reduction in fat below the chin with the medication and injection therapy, sometimes in just two treatments.

A Clinic with Options. Hobgood Plastic Surgery employs established facial surgery procedures to ameliorate deformities related to trauma, disease, or genetics.

His otolaryngology background gives him special expertise and knowledge relating to the skeletal structures below the surface of the skin while his facial cosmetics background augments efforts at construction or reconstruction of surface structures of the head and neck. His focus is always on employing a best practices approach to medical management of conditions and utilization of the least invasive surgical techniques when indicated.
Non-Surgical Options. A variety of non-surgical alternatives are also available in the Hobgood practice. Wrinkles, sagging skin, and damaged skin problems can be addressed and often be restored without surgery. With the advent of lasers, it may even be possible to get a facelift with no surgery and no down-time. Injections, lasers, chemical abrasion, etc. are today’s alternatives.
