What Are Weight Loss Injections?

Fat Dissolving Injections (or weight loss injections) target stubborn fat in the chin delivering a sharper-looking, more defined jawline. The injection contains a naturally occurring product that selectively melts away the fat cells, leaving the surrounding tissue intact.  

MedAesthetics was one of the first clinics in Perth to offer the Fat Dissolving Injection treatment to help improve the appearance of double chins.

General Information

Potential Risks & Complications

Fat Dissolving Injections are safe and effective in most cases. They have TGA approval in Australia and FDA Approval in the US for their safety and efficacy. However, like any other medication, they do have some rare side effects.

These include:
• Prolonged swelling lasting for a few weeks (rare)
• Prolonged discomfort or numbness (rare)
• Under corrections (uncommon)

Other Treatment Options To Improve The Appearance Of Double Chin

Some patients do not achieve the desired results from this treatment. We offer several other treatment options for fat reduction including CoolSculpting and Vaser™ Liposuction.

Patients are asked to give their feedback 4 weeks after the treatment. Sometimes a top-up treatment is needed if the initial treatment did not deliver the desired results.

The Pain Factor

The clinical team at MedAesthetics is highly experienced and strives to minimise any discomfort associated with treatments. Their fine motor skills and gentle touch are vital assets in ensuring a positive patient experience.

To accommodate the specific needs of each procedure, a range of options may be utilised to reduce discomfort, including the application of high-strength topical numbing cream, inhalation (laughing) gas, local anaesthesia, and the use of skin cooling devices.

At Medaesthetics, we prioritise the comfort and well-being of our patients and are committed to providing a safe and tolerable experience during all procedures.

Under Australian Law, all Injectable Cosmetic Treatments must be carried out under the direct supervision of a Medical Doctor.

Important

Cosmetic injections are effective, relatively affordable and offer little to no downtime. There are, however, some side effects associated with poorly performed procedures. It is, therefore, vital that you choose your treatment provider based upon their experience and reputation and not just on marketing hype or discount pricing.

Potential Risks & Complications

All cosmetic procedures carry potential risks, complications, and treatment limitations. We advise patients to seek independent advice from an independent, appropriately qualified medical doctor before thinking about any type of cosmetic enhancement.

FAQs

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

Any adult male or female with excess fat deposits under the chin may consider having this treatment done. It is important to understand that this treatment is not meant to correct the loose neck skin. Patients with excess skin may not be suitable candidates and may consider other treatment options we have.

How is the treatment performed?

The area to be treated is first anaesthetised using high strength topical numbing cream and local anaesthetic. Once entirely numb, a tiny needle is used to inject small quantities of the product into the fat under the skin. The whole treatment roughly takes about 30 minutes.

Is It painful?

Most patients tolerate the procedure reasonably well. At Medaesthetics we perform this treatment only once the area is first numbed using local infiltration anaesthesia. Some patients have reported feeling a mild stinging sensation, which quickly subsides.

Patients may experience a mild to moderate degree of tenderness and swelling in the treated area for a few days after the treatment.

We recommend oral painkillers such as Panadol and ice packs to manage this.

Is the treatment effective?

Efficacy of Fat Dissolving Injections is well established in the majority of patients. The main ingredient of Fat Dissolving Injections is a substance which is structurally identical to a naturally occurring enzyme which helps with the digestion of fat in the human diet.

There are some temporary side effects which include:

Temporary redness
Swelling & bruising
Discomfort
Rare side effects include:

Prolonged swelling lasting several weeks
Formation of cyst /abscess in the treated area which may require drainage (extremely rare)
Loose skin in the treated area (extremely rare)

Is there any downtime?

As mentioned above, some patients experience a varying degree of swelling, redness and bruising in the treated area.

This can last for up to 5 days, but icing the treated area helps to reduce the swelling quickly.

How long does it take for fat dissolving injections to work?

Most patients see a visible improvement in the treated area two to three weeks after one treatment.

A second or third treatment session may be required if more improvement is desired. Results are permanent.

How soon will I be able to see the results?

Most patients see a visible improvement in the subject area 2 to 3 weeks after the first treatment. A second or third treatment session may be required if more dramatic improvement is desired. Results are permanent.

What other treatment options are available for a sharper neck & jawline?

As mentioned above, Medaesthetics offers multiple treatments modalities to remove the excess neck and jawline fat. We have substantial experience in’ in fat reduction treatments for the entire body. These include:

Coolsculpt Mini (Fat freezing)
Vaser Liposculpture
Sculpsure

How much does it cost?

One treatment session costs $1250. We recommend a minimum of two sessions for superior clinical results.

Why choose Medaesthetics for this treatment?

As mentioned above, Medaesthetics was one of the very first clinics in Perth to introduce Fat Dissolving Injections back in 2011. Since then we have treated countless patients with excellent clinical results. We have seen and managed almost every complication associated with Fat Dissolving Injections.

We are one of the few clinics in Australia to offer the entire spectrum of fat reduction treatments under the one roof. This includes:

Vaser Liposuction
PAL Liposuction
Coolsculpting (fat-freezing)
Sculpsure (Fat-warming
Face & Neck lift for loose neck skin
We are, therefore able to choose the right treatment for each individual patient. As mentioned above, Fat-dissolving injections are not suitable for everyone. In fact, less than 50% of all new clients who contact us for correction of double-chins or jawline sharpening are appropriate candidates for this treatment!

Our ability to choose the most appropriate treatment for each client distinguishes us from most other cosmetic clinics in Australia which only offer one or two treatment options.
