The Blog How To Dissolve A Double Chin Fat Without Surgery

The dreaded double chin can cause you to have body confidence issues and make you incredibly self-conscious about going out or having your photograph taken. In today’s culture of selfie-taking, we all want to look great no matter which angle the camera is facing but that can be hard if you’re struggling with extra fat around your chin area. What if we were to tell you that there’s a way to get rid of that excess fat without having to go through the ordeal of surgery? The answer is fat dissolving injections.

What causes a double chin?

Weight is often the culprit for the double chin, and if you are someone whose weight goes up and down, you can be more likely to suffer from it as your skin expands and contracts and this elasticity reduces as you get older. However, it is not just weight that can cause your double chin as genetics can have a part to play. It’s for this reason that you may not be able to get rid of it yourself, no matter how much weight you lose.

How can fat dissolving injections help?

While you may have thought that liposuction was the only way to permanently get rid of the excess fat, fat dissolving injections offer you a non-surgical option.

With these injections, the active ingredient used is deoxycholic acid. This is present naturally in your digestive tract and is used by the body to digest dietary fats. When injected into the under chin fat, deoxycholic acid melts fat cells, then overtime your body clears the cells from your system. And the best news is, once they have been killed, they can never return so fat dissolving injections offer you a permanent solution. Results aren’t visible straight away, but you won’t have to wait long. You will see your results within 4-6 weeks when your body has removed the fat cells.

Does it hurt?

During the procedure, local anaesthetics are used to keep your discomfort to a minimum. After you have had your fat dissolving injections, you can expect to feel a little sore, and there may be swelling so take some time to rest and recuperate.

How is it different from liposuction?

During a liposuction procedure, you will be put under a general anaesthetic, and small incisions are made to suction out and remove the fat. Fat dissolving injections offer you a less invasive treatment that still offers great results, although the changes are not immediate as they are with liposuction.
