Everything you need to know before getting a double chin reduction

A recent development in anti-ageing science is deoxycholic acid used for dissolving fat. Injecting deoxycholic acid into the skin beneath the chin melts the fat that the body then reabsorbs. This non-surgical procedure works best with between two to six treatments spaced out over time, depending on the amount of fat in the treatment area.

Fat reduction non-surgical treatments result in a more contoured neck profile and jawline. The skin is also tightened. Fat-dissolving injections target the excess fat under the chin area, called submental fat (which is different to neck fat). Me Clinic employs highly-qualified cosmetic surgeons and clinicians with experience in a wide range of fat removal procedures, including double chin injections.

Discover non-surgical fat-dissolving injection treatments

This procedure differs from liposuction which removes fat with small incisions and a cannula. It is also different to cryolipolysis which uses very cold temperatures to damage fat cells. Here are the simple deoxycholic acid double chin reduction treatment steps.

  • Prior to administering deoxycholic acid, your clinician may apply ice packs or anaesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable.
  • The injectable treatment time ranges from 15 -30 minutes.
  • The practitioner will customise the treatment to your individual anatomy and circumstances.

Many patients experience visible improvements in two to four treatments. Although most patients only require two sessions, up to six treatments may be administered spaced six weeks apart. For any questions or concerns related to this procedure, contact Me Clinic and speak with one of our experienced cosmetic physicians, aesthetic nurses or staff members.

Alternative rejuvenation treatments for removing fat include chin and neck liposuction and plastic surgery neck lift and facelift procedures. It’s worth noting that deoxycholic acid injection treatments remove double chin fat but they don’t target excess skin, loose skin or wrinkles caused by skin damage or ageing.

Considering double chin surgery? Know your options

The double chin effect is the result of a small pocket of submental fat developing beneath the jawline. It can be caused by ageing, genetics or weight gain. Diet and exercise often do little to remove it. The procedure starts with a consultation with your injector and then each treatment takes around 30-60 minutes. At least two treatments are required for the best results.

Double chin reduction patient recovery time

You can return to work the following day after treatment, although strenuous activities should be avoided for a number of days. It is possible for bruising to remain for several weeks.

The difference between double chin reduction and liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure, whereas double chin reduction treatments involve injections into the area to dissolve fat. Due to the surgical nature of liposuction, more downtime is required for recovery.

Discover if you are a candidate

During your initial consultation, a Me Clinic practitioner will examine the treatment area and discuss your specific situation and cosmetic surgery aspirations. If you are close to your goal weight and want to target a stubborn double chin, you are probably a good candidate for double chin removal. Your Me Clinic doctor will discuss the procedural steps, including how to prepare for the procedure and the recovery process.

Get the perfect jawline you’ve always wanted

The appearance of a double chin can make a person self-conscious about their facial appearance. If your double chin is causing self-esteem or body-image issues, a double chin procedure can be transformative. Using deoxycholic acid, under-chin fat deposits simply melt away and are reabsorbed into your body and eliminated safely. It really is that easy to get the perfect jawline you’ve always wanted.

Benefits of liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical alternative that can target unwanted fat in many areas of the body. If you experience stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, double chin liposuction could be the answer. Other areas targeted by liposuction include:

  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Chin and neck
  • Buttocks
  • Calves and ankles
  • Hips and thighs
  • Chest and back

In addition, liposuction is sometimes used for breast reduction or treatment of gynecomastia. As a person gains weight, fat cells increase in both size and volume. The amount of fat removed is dependent on the area and volume of fat. After liposuction, the skin will mould itself to the new contours of the treated areas. Liposuction results are generally permanent if you maintain a stable weight post-procedure.

Costs involved

The cost of double chin treatment will depend on the type of procedure undertaken and the number of treatment sessions required. All costs associated with this cosmetic procedure will be discussed during the consultation phase.

Double Chin Reduction FAQs

Deoxycholic acid injections can be moderately painful, although you will likely only need a couple of treatment sessions to see real and permanent improvements. Your Me Clinic specialist can help mitigate pain with an anaesthetic. Our cosmetic surgeons are among the best in Australia.

This double chin reduction procedure is generally very safe to perform, although some patients find the injections a little more painful than other cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers. Your clinician will provide numbing measures and anaesthetic to dull the pain. You can also expect to have a swollen neck for about 10 days after each treatment session. However, the treatment does provide long-lasting results.
