Double Chin/Fat Dissolver

Dr Ricky is privileged to be one of the first few selected doctors in Queensland to be able to offer this treatment. This treatment aims to reduce double chin fat and to give a more defined neck profile & jawline. Ageing, changes in weight and genetics play a part in the appearance of a double chin.

This treatment destroys fat cells at the injections sites. Therefore, re-treatment is not expected as the results may maintain for 4 years or more once full correction is achieved*.

Frequently Asked Questions

"Double chin" is also known as submental fullness.

It can be caused by:

  1. Ageing
  2. Genetics
  3. Weight changes (diet and exercise may not be enough to remove fullness)

The double chin/fat dissolver contains a naturally occurring acid in the body which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

When injected below the chin, the dissolver breaks down fat cells and the fat is then absorbed by the body, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline.

Treatment is not possible if you are:

  • Pregnant/planning or breastfeeding.
  • Concurrent infection at the chin or neck.

This medication is indicated for double chin fat removal.

Once candidacy has been confirmed, it takes approximately 15-30 minutes to perform the treatment.

These injections can be a bit uncomfortable but it can be easily managed using local anaesthetic & ice for your maximal comfort.

Swelling is to be expected on the day of treatment and may persist for a few weeks. This is a sign of the treatment that is working while the medication is working to dissolve the fat. Some patients may experience temporary numbness to the skin injected and areas of hardness. Rare side effects (less than 2%) include temporary smile asymmetry due to nerve injury, which may take up to a few days to 3 months to resolve.

Many people treated with the dissolver experience visible improvements in chin profile within 2-6 treatments.

As the fat storing cells at the treated areas are destroyed, results are long lasting (may last for 4 years or more*) once full treatment outcome is achieved.
