Are you looking to get rid of excess chin fat? There are a number of options for removing the sub-mental fat also known as neck fat or chin fat. This includes chin fat reducing injections. It is a new and effective, non-surgical method to remove excess chin fat.

Up until now, Liposuction has been the most popular procedure to treat excess chin fat. But, many patients do not like the invasive nature of the liposuction procedure. This can be especially true when it is done on the neck. Other patients can have medical problems that makes them not suitable for liposuction.

We offer chin reduction injections in Melbourne, at our well known cosmetic clinic.

Fat Dissolving Injections For The Chin

Fat dissolving injections can improve skin retraction and jawline contouring, achieving the result that you want, without surgery.

As a relatively minor procedure, under chin liposuction remains an excellent surgical option for reducing and removing fat beneath the chin. Increasingly however, there is wide interest in non-surgical options for patients that want to enhance their chin and jaw area. Fat dissolving injections have been FDA-approved and in use in the USA since 2015. This very popular option for under chin fat removal has recently become available in Melbourne too.

This option for chin reduction is non-surgical. It uses fat dissolving injections to create the sculpted appearance the patient desires. The injecting practitioner carefully marks the injection area to ensure accuracy, minimise complications and achieve the best results. They then inject the fat dissolving solution in the chin area and the upper part of the neck.

What does the procedure include?

The patient consults with one of our doctors to decide if they are a good candidate for the procedure or not. The doctor will inform you how many sessions you will require to achieve the desired result. Usually, a small chin would get satisfactory results from one session. A chin with a larger amount of excess fat could require up to three sessions.

Topical cream is applied thirty minutes before the procedure. Ice is also applied before and during the procedure to minimise the bruising and the discomfort during the non surgical chin fat reduction procedure.

The chin is marked accurately and a special marking paper with mapping points is applied to the skin. The number of points printed on the skin within the marked area is then counted. The dose of Chin Fat dissolving injections is then calculated based on the number of points requiring injecting.

The Chin Fat dissolving injections are injected using a special needle to minimise the discomfort and ice is applied after too.

What is the acid used?

As with the product name, we are not allowed to mention the acid used. A synthetic version of a naturally occurring acid is used to permanently break down the fatty cells under the chin.

Normally this acid helps to break down fats for absorption in the intestine. In fat cells, it does something similar. After a doctor injects the acid into the patient’s fatty chin, the substance weakens the cell membranes of the fat cells. This causes them to burst. When the cells break apart, they are reabsorbed by the body’s normal metabolic processes. The product we use is a prescription medicine. It is used by adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat).

Who is a good candidate for fat dissolving injections?

Patients need to be eighteen years of age or above. They also need to have no or minimal excess skin in the neck. The product helps to dissolve fat only. It does not help to retract the skin.

Who should not receive fat dissolving injections?

You should not receive chin fat dissolving injections if you have an infection in the treatment area.

Before receiving fat dissolving injections tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed
  • Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood.

Does it really work?

Reviews show an 83% satisfaction rate after a chin fat reduction procedure. Patients who are not satisfied with the treatment are mostly not suitable candidates in the first place. It is mandatory to have a proper examination by a trained health provider before the treatment. This helps to ensure you get the right advice and to determine if you are the right candidate for the treatment.

What is submental fullness or submental fat?

Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin. It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics. It can also start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.

How long does the procedure take?

The injection can take as little as 5 minutes. We require 30 minutes for applying numbing cream and to ensure the process is completed to the high level of skill we like to maintain.

How long does the result last?

The injection dissolves the fat cell membrane not only the fat inside the fat cells and the dead fat cells get cleared by a cleaning cells. The size of the chin does not change much even if the patient put on weight.

What are the other options for chin reduction?

At Chelsea Cosmetics, we have other modes of treatment for reducing your chin. These include liposuction, Slim lipolysis and coolsculpting.

What are the side effects of Fat Dissolving Injection?

Though Fat Dissolving Injections are nonsurgical there are some common side effects. They can include some pain, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness. The recovery process associated with chin reduction injections is minimal in most cases. Downtime varies from person to person. The minor side effects typically subside within one or two weeks.

Serious side effects have occurred. They include facial muscle weakness, uneven smile, trouble swallowing, or nerve injury in the jaw. Any post-treatment discomfort should be discussed with your healthcare provider. If you experience any of these severe side effects, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

What to expect after Fat Dissolving Injection?

Your healthcare provider should design a treatment plan according to your specific needs. Most people require more than one treatment to reach their desired aesthetic goals. In clinical studies, many people who’ve received Fat Dissolving Injection treatment achieved visible results after two to four treatments.
