Chin Fat Reduction

Chin fat reduction is the best non-surgical treatment for stubborn fat around the chin area. Also called double chin removal, our chin fat reduction treatment at Flawless Rejuvenation in Melbourne uses fat dissolving injections to remove unwanted fat deposits and tighten the skin. This creates a slimmer, more refined chin and jawline.

It can be hard to target fat deposits under the chin through diet and exercise, since the fat that has naturally moved to the area can be stubborn to break down. Until modern developments, a double chin could only be removed with a surgical procedure, such as a facelift, neck lift or liposuction. Although these options can be effective, they generally come along with a longer recovery time and higher risks.

Injectable chin fat reduction treatments are a great double chin removal option, as the treatment does not require incisions or long recovery times. As a result, patients can achieve a more sculpted chin contour that suits their goals.

How it works

The treatment is an effective fat dissolving solution that your injector injects into the treatment area to remove the unwanted fat deposits under the chin. It is an enzyme that gradually destroys the fat cells while creating a skin-tightening effect, helping to prevent leaving loose skin behind. By targeting only the unwanted fat cells, the treatment leaves the surrounding cells unharmed in order to produce great results.

Patients generally require two sessions about four weeks apart, since this helps achieve gradual toned and sculpted results and allows the skin to tighten in the area. Once the fat cells dissolve, they will not return.

The benefits

Fat dissolving injections can successfully destroy stubborn fat cells while tightening the skin in the area, restoring a defined and toned chin. Not only is a chin fat reduction an excellent double chin removal method, but it can improve the structure of the overall face and neck, creating a youthful and sculpted appearance.

As a non-surgical chin fat reduction option, double chin removal comes with much less downtime and risks than surgical procedures such as facelifts or neck lifts. As well as being a tolerable and fast procedure, an injectable chin fat reduction treatment can:

  • Remove the appearance of a double chin
  • Restore a defined, sculpted chin
  • Create harmony and balance with the face and neck
  • Restore symmetry
  • Tighten the skin on the chin
  • Create a more toned-looking jawline

This procedure is also a lower-cost option than liposuction. Therefore, if you are looking for a non-invasive double chin removal method, chin fat reduction injections could be a great option. Speaking to an injector will help you decide if this is the right treatment for you to attain a more contoured jawline and regain confidence. We will adjust the treatment to fit your particular needs in order to give you a pleasing result.

Good candidates for chin fat reduction

Good candidates are those who want to remove excess fat underneath the chin that does not go away with diet and exercise efforts alone. The treatment may suit both men and women over the age of 18 who would like to remove unwanted fat under the chin with a non-surgical option. Ideal candidates may include those who cannot have surgery due to personal or health reasons. Also, suitable candidates are generally:

  • In good physical and mental health
  • At, or close to, their ideal weight
  • Not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Do not have health issues that could impact recovery

During a consultation, we will be able to speak with you about your health and desired results in order to determine if you are eligible for the treatment.

How much does double chin removal cost in Melbourne

Every patient will have slightly different concerns and reasons for seeking double chin removal. No matter your reasons for seeking a particular treatment, it is important to consider the cost so that you can be fully informed and prepared.

Since every patient’s lower facial structure and goals are different, we will need to tailor the chin fat dissolving injections to the person. This means costs will depend on the exact details of your procedure. For example, factors that can affect the pricing include:

  • The number of injections required
  • The area and size of submental fat
  • Your number of treatment sessions
  • Your desired outcomes

A larger treatment area may require more dissolver, which will therefore increase the price. We will discuss these factors with you prior to your double chin removal procedure, along with your general health. Then, we can offer more details about your treatment and how much it will cost.

What to expect

To perform the chin reduction treatment, we use an injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, sometimes referred to as a double chin, the treatment destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

Our injectors will inject the treatment into the problem areas with precision to deliver the best results possible. Before injecting the treatment, a local anaesthetic is administered to ensure your comfort. Your injector may also apply ice to minimise any swelling.

Each treatment will take about 60 minutes, depending on your personal goals for treatment and the amount of fat you would like to remove. Results can become visible at about four to six weeks, depending on the patient. About two or four weeks after treatment, you may need to return to the clinic so that we can assess your results and determine if follow-up treatment is required.

Things to consider

On average, downtime will last for about seven days after treatment, but this time frame will be different for each patient. You may experience some swelling, redness, bruising, pain or general discomfort around the area, but this is normal and will subside as the area begins to heal.

Side effects are considered rare and can be avoided by choosing an experienced clinician to perform your treatment. You should let your injector know if you have any allergies to certain medications to prevent the chance of an allergic reaction.

The results from the treatment are long-lasting. However, multiple treatments may be needed to reach your aesthetic goals. The number of treatments that you need can be discussed during your consultation, as well as your desired results.

Double chin injections aftercare

Although double chin removal aims to minimise the tissue volume under the chin, patients should be aware that it will take some time to see results. You may have some swelling straight after the procedure, and therefore, the area may appear larger than you expected. It is also common for patients to have some slight discomfort and bruising. If you follow the aftercare instructions and take care of your body, rest assured that these should reduce on their own.

The at-home care guidelines given by your injector are important for helping your body heal properly and achieve a good final result. For example, you might need to:

  • Avoid exercise for a few days after treatment
  • Do not scratch or pick your treatment areas
  • Keep the injection site dry for at least four hours
  • Do not drink alcohol for a few days
  • Avoid excessive heat or sun exposure to the treatment site

In addition to these instructions, staying generally healthy will help your body heal optimally. Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle, as well as staying hydrated, will aid recovery and give you optimal results.

Risks and complications

Double chin removal injections are a trusted and clinically proven way to improve the face-to-neck transition. However, like any procedure, there are some risks involved. In the days following your chin fat reduction, your double chin may become larger due to the swelling. Mild side effects such as bruising, numbness, and tenderness should subside shortly.

Rare fat dissolving injections side effects can include:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Ulcers
  • Infection
  • Hair loss
  • Necrosis
  • Nerve injury

Ensuring that you follow the aftercare advice this will aid the healing process and reduce your risks. If you notice anything concerning during your recovery, please contact the clinic and we will provide further guidance.

Double chin injections FAQs

How do fat dissolving chin injections work?

Chin fat reduction involves injecting an enzyme into the area beneath the chin in order to dissolve the fat tissue. While some people may refer to them as double chin fillers, they do not fill or increase the volume under the chin. Rather, the treatment reduces the appearance of a double chin.

How many chin fat reduction treatments will I need?

Most patients will have between two to six treatments. Results can vary depending on your health and how your body responds to treatment. However, most people can expect visible results four weeks afterwards. You can maintain your results by staying healthy and maintaining a stable weight.

Is double chin removal covered by Medicare?

Chin fat reduction treatments are cosmetic in nature, which means you cannot claim Medicare rebates. Since the procedure is not medically required, patients will need to cover their own costs.

Am I suitable for chin fat reduction?

Suitable patients are at a healthy weight and usually have at least a moderate amount of fat tissue beneath the chin (submental fat). Speak to one of our qualified injectors to find out if you are a good candidate for double chin removal.

How many injections will I need for double chin removal?

Depending on their requirements, patients usually have a series of about 20 injections. Your injector will mark specific areas for injection and carefully administer the dissolver in order to produce tailored, pleasing results. You will discuss how many injections you need (and over how many treatment sessions) prior to your procedure.
