Overview of Fat Dissolving Injections
Medaesthetics was one of the first clinics in Perth to offer the Fat Dissolving Injection treatment for treating double chins. Over the past few years, we have successfully treated hundreds of patients with excellent clinical results.
The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule which selectively melts away the fat cells, leaving other cells in the area unharmed.
When choosing your treatment provider, it is critical to choose the clinic with an experienced and fully qualified team.

Frequently Asked Questions
Most patients see a visible improvement in the treated area two to three weeks after the treatment. A second or third treatment session may be required if more dramatic improvement is desired. Results are permanent.
Any adult male or female with excess fat deposits under the chin may consider having this treatment done. This treatment is not meant to correct loose neck skin, and patients with a lot of loose skin may not be suitable candidates.
The key ingredient of Fat Dissolving Injections is a naturally occurring enzyme in humans, secreted by the gallbladder. This enzyme breaks down fatty tissues and is a very safe and biocompatible product able to reduce double chin fat when administered correctly by a qualified medical practitioner.
There are some temporary side effects which include:
- Temporary redness
- Swelling & bruising
Rare side effects include:
- Prolonged swelling lasting a few weeks
- Formation of cyst /abscess in the treated area which may require drainage (extremely rare)
- Loose skin in the treated area ( extremely rare)
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 itself takes about 15 minutes.
Most patients tolerate the procedure reasonably well. Some patients have reported feeling a mild stinging sensation, which quickly subsides. Some patients experience a mild to moderate degree of tenderness or discomfort 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.
Most patients experience a varying degree of swelling 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.
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.
Most patients can drive home or back to work straight after the treatment if they don’t have any social commitments. However, we recommend taking the rest of the day off work since there is usually visible swelling after the procedure which subsides gradually over few days.
One treatment session costs $1250. We recommend a minimum of two sessions for the desired clinical results.
