Are you looking to get rid of double chin fat? There are a number of options for removing the sub-mental fat also known as neck fat, chin fat or double chin. A new effective, non surgical and permanent method to remove double chin is the use of fat dissolving injections.
For year patients with a double chin have had only a few options. Up until now, Liposuction has been the most popular procedure to treat double chins. But, many patients do not like the invasive nature of the liposuction procedure, especially when it is done on the neck while other patients with medical problems makes them not suitable for liposuction.
Fat dissolving injections can improve skin retraction and jawline contouring.
A 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 wanting 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 on the Australian market.
This option for double chin removal is non-surgical, using 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, before injecting the fat dissolving solution in the chin area and the upper part of the neck.
Double Chin Reduction Before & After Photos
What does the procedure include?
The patient consults with one of our doctors to decide if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure or not. The doctor will inform you how sessions you would require, usually a small chin would get satisfactory results from one session while a large double chin could require three sessions.
Topical cream is applied thirty minutes before the procedure, also ice is applied before and during the procedure to minimise the bruising and the discomfort during the injection.
The chin is marked accurately and a special marking paper with mapping points applied to the skin.
The number of points printed on the skin within the marked area is counted and the dose of the Chin Fat dissolving injection is calculated based on the number of points.
The Chin Fat dissolving injection is injected using a special needle to minimise the discomfort and ice is re applied.
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 and causes them to burst. When the cells break apart, they are processed by the body’s normal metabolic processes. The product we use is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin”.
Who is a good candidate for fat dissolving injections?
Patient 18 years of age or above.
Patient who has no or minimal excess skin in the neck. The product helps to dissolve fat but 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.

What is submental fullness or submental fat?
Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics, or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.
How do Fat Dissolving injections work?
The active ingredient is a synthetic acid (we cannot name due to Australian law). The acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
How long does the procedure take?
The injection takes 5 minutes, while we require 30 minutes for numbing cream.
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 double chin treatment?
In Chelsea Cosmetics we have other modalities of treatment for double chin including liposuction, Slim lipolysis and coolsculpting.
What are the side effects of Fat Dissolving Injection?
Though Fat Dissolving Injection is nonsurgical, some common side effects include pain, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness.

Serious side effects have occurred, including 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.
