Fat Dissolving Injections Before and After
If you have pockets of fat under your chin that’s not responding to diet and exercise, check out our double chin before and after photos to know your treatment options. Fat-dissolving injections are the recommended treatment for patients with double chin who don’t want to undergo surgery. If you want to achieve a well-defined chin, then this procedure is right for you.
How fat-dissolving injections work
The procedure makes use of deoxycholic acid, a substance that can be found in your body. When injected into your chin, this causes fat to break down into smaller pieces. The fat is then naturally absorbed by your body. After a few treatment sessions, you will notice an improvement in the appearance of your chin.
How double chin injections are performed
During the procedure, your surgeon will cleanse your chin with an antiseptic and will apply an anesthetic cream to prevent discomfort. Once your chin is numb, your surgeon will inject the substance in your chin. You may feel a slight burning in the area during this process. To minimize discomfort, your surgeon will use an ice pack over your chin area. The entire process may take 15 to 20 minutes.
Our Form & Face clinic in Sydney offers this non-surgical treatment to patients with:
- Low self-esteem due to the appearance of their chin
- Pockets of fat under their chin that won’t go away
- Realistic expectations
- Undefined jawline
The recovery period
The procedure has minimal downtime and you can immediately return to work and daily activities after. However, your chin may feel sore and you may need to regularly apply an ice pack in the area. Once the swelling is gone, the results of the procedure will become more noticeable. It is important to keep in mind that the recovery time will be different for each patient. This will depend on the amount of fat in their chin and their desired treatment goals.
Limitations of double chin injections
After the procedure, you still need to live a healthy lifestyle because fat cells can still expand if you gain weight. This can negatively affect the appearance of your chin. Also, the procedure is not recommended for patients with large amounts of fat under their chin and those with sagging skin on their chin area.
