Fat Dissolving injections are made up of an acid naturally occurring in the body, used for treating submental fat or a 'double chin'. Sometimes no matter how much weight we lose we can still have this double chin due to genetics. This can be treated with fat dissolving injections by injecting small amounts of product into the fat. This causes the fat cell to destruct and break down where it is then transferred to our lymphatic system and excreted.
Fat dissolving injections over liposuction may be more suitable for you as it is the non-surgical approach to reducing fat and is ideal for patients with a small amount of fat and minimal skin laxity. During your consultation, we will discuss if you are an appropriate candidate for fat dissolving injections or if another treatment is more suited to your concern. Some patients need a combination of treatments so achieve their desired results.
To reduce discomfort local anaesthetic is mixed in with the solution and ice is used topically. A slight sting may be felt during the procedure. This treatment takes approximately 20 minutes to perform.
Visible swelling, numbness and tenderness will be seen immediately and can last 7-14 days in some cases. Swelling is a sign that the fat cells are being broken down.
Most people need approximately 3 treatments to achieve optimal results and can take up to 3 months to notice the difference. In some cases, results are not achieved until the second treatment. Ideally, these treatments need to be spaced 1-3 months apart. Once the fat cells are destroyed, results are permanent.
