fat dissolving

Are you wanting to improve the appearance of your double chin? You may be interested in fat dissolving.

Fat-dissolving injections will remove your ‘double chin’ without you having to undergo surgery.

This will give your neck and jawline a much more refined appearance.

Fat-dissolving injections contain deoxycholic acid (DCA). This is a substance that is found naturally within the body and causes the breakdown of dietary fat. Injecting this substance directly into the fat cells results in the destruction of these cells, stopping them from storing and accumulating fat. Following this procedure, you will be able to notice a reduction in volume to the target area.


The biggest benefit of fat dissolving injections is being able to avoid undergoing surgery. Liposuction is the surgical way to remove unwanted fat from your body. However, this is a far more invasive procedure and can involve a lengthy recovery period. Fat-dissolving is a much cheaper, non-surgical option for those who wish to remove volume from their chin.

Fat-dissolving injections also offer a permanent solution to removing fat from beneath the chin. However, gaining or losing weight following the procedure will alter the appearance of the face, chin and jawline. 

Fat-dissolving is a safe procedure, as it is non-surgical, involving no anaesthetic and uses substances that are found naturally within the body. 

When compared to other fat-dissolving procedures such as liposuction, fat-dissolving injections are far less painful. During the procedure, you may only feel a few moments of discomfort and will have a minimal recovery period. 

What to Expect

Fat-dissolving appointments generally take around half an hour.

Your appointment will involve injecting the DCA into the desired area. The area will be numbed with a local anesthetic, however, you may feel some mild discomfort during the appointment. 

Following the procedure, you may notice some bruising, and the treated area may be tender to touch. You may notice some swelling which will be most noticeable within the first three days. However, swelling and bruising durations vary from person to person. You may also experience numbness or tingling in the area for two to three days following treatment. Make sure to visit your doctor if you are concerned with any side effects.

After your procedure, make sure not to massage the area for the first 72 hours. 

You should expect to see your results within four to six weeks following the procedure. 

You may need to undergo multiple sessions, depending on how much volume you are wanting to remove from the area. Generally, one to two sessions are required. However, this will vary from person to person; some people may require two to four treatments. Your practitioner will be able to give you personalised advice on how many treatments you will require to achieve your desired goal. Follow up appointments will happen a minimum of four weeks after your initial procedure.

Fat-dissolving is a permanent procedure, however, we recommend to undergo repeat procedures every four years. Fluctuations in weight following the procedure can cause residual fat to decrease or increase in volume.

Different Procedures

Fat-dissolving injections aren’t just restricted to the chin. You may also wish to have fat removed from other areas of the body, including:

  • Back
  • Thighs 
  • Hips

These procedures are not intended to be a weight reduction procedure, however, they will remove localised deposits of fat.
