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 rare side effects which are not permanent but will be discussed with you by our clinical staff at the time of your consultation.
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.
Yes. Patients can drive home or back to work straight after the treatment. However, we recommend taking the rest of the day off work since there is usually visible swelling after the procedure which subsides gradually over 2-3 days.
One treatment session costs $1250, two sessions is $2400.
