Can I Get Rid of Double Chin without Surgery

Having a double chin can undoubtedly become frustrating, particularly when it won’t seem to go away.

It’s no question that many people struggle with double chins! And, unfortunately, for a lot of these people, their double chins just won’t budge even with the strictest diet or the most intense exercise. Fortunately, there is a solution!

Double chin injections primarily aim to reduce the appearance of double chin fat by working to break down and absorb fat. So, what does this mean for you? This treatment leads to nothing short of a smoother, more contoured jawline and chin!

In this blog, our team covers everything you need to know about double chin injections for double chin removal, commonly referred to as fat-dissolving injections and how they can help you get rid of that stubborn double chin.

Double Chin Injectables: The Basics

Double chin injections, also known as fat-dissolving injections, are a non-surgical treatment that specifically targets the fat cells under your chin. These injections utilise a form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally-occurring molecule found in our body to help absorb and break down stubborn fats.

During your first treatment, your qualified clinician will inject a small needle directly into the targeted area under your chin. This solution will then work its magic to start gradually breaking down the fat cells under your chin, causing them to naturally absorb into your body over time.

Double chin injectables typically require multiple treatment sessions for maintained results and long-term outcomes, with each treatment session taking around 20 to 30 minutes.

While most patients will require about 2 to 6 treatment sessions, spaced out at least one month apart, the number of treatments you require will vary, depending on your individual case and the severity of your double chin.

The results from this treatment speak for themselves, delivering nothing short of a more contoured and defined jawline!

It’s important to note that this treatment does require an initial consultation with our clinician. This is generally to get to know you, your medical history and your expectations from the treatment. Maintaining realistic expectations is the key when it comes to any treatment!

Are double chin injections effective

Double chin injections have been clinically proven to show effective results, reducing the visible appearance of double chins in the long term.

It is also important to note that double chin injections are a non-surgical and non-invasive alternative treatment to surgical procedures such as neck lift surgery or neck liposuction.

However, a consultation is required to determine your candidacy as this treatment is not effective for patients with a loose-hanging chin and no submental fat (the fat underneath the chin). The treatment is not a weight loss solution or surgical alternative and is best suited for patients suffering from a moderate to severe amount of submental fat.

If you do suffer from a significant amount of excess weight or loose-hanging skin under your chin and neck region, your clinician may advise you to seek a different treatment option, such as neck liposuction.

What are the side effects of double chin injections

As with any cosmetic procedure, cosmetic injectables do pose the risk of potential side effects after undergoing the treatment.

Due to the nature of using injections, patients can typically expect to experience minor side effects including swelling, bruising and tenderness around the treatment site. These symptoms are entirely normal and usually subside on their own within a few days post-treatment.

Less likely side effects may include numbness, redness or hardness at the injection site. In extremely rare cases, patients may experience difficulty swallowing or nerve damage, however, by visiting a fully-qualified clinician at an accredited cosmetic clinic, this is unlikely.
