The outcomes shown are only relevant for this patient and do not necessarily reflect the results other patients may experience, as results may vary due to many factors including the individual’s genetics, diet and exercise.
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 most patients begin to notice the effects of the treatment.
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 who:
- Are dissatisfied with the appearance of their chin
- Have pockets of fat under their chin that won’t go away
- Have realistic expectations
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 excess skin on their chin area.
