The Blog How to get rid of double chin

Now for most people I know and myself included, the words ‘fat dissolving injections’ are music to my ears and almost sound too good to be true, right? But I pull your leg not, this is actually a thing, a real thing. It’s a treatment that uses something called deoxycholic acid, (a substance that occurs naturally in your body to help break down the fat that you digest) to dissolve the small pocket of fat under one’s chin(s). Can I take a bath in this stuff while I think quietly to myself!?


How does it work you ask? Well, we inject the deoxycholic acid into the pocket of fat we are treating and it works to break down the fatty tissue in the same way your stomach digests dietary fats. It usually requires between 10-15 injections which, while may sound like a lot, doesn’t take very long and we numb the area first to reduce discomfort. You can expect mild swelling for a week or so afterwards and may experience some burning or numbness but nothing that can’t be managed with over the counter pain relief. Cute neck scarfs and high neck tops will be your ‘go to’ wardrobe choice in the 2 weeks after treatment!Most patients will need at least two treatments and some clients find they great results from just two, done 4-6 weeks apart.



For those of you who are needle phobic, we have the option of the Coolsculpting to the under chin region. This provides the same results as double chin injections with similar downtime. See our Coolsculpting page for more information.

Remember the results are permanent and most patients find this is a much better option for them than surgery which can be painful and leave you with unsightly scars. Book your complimentary consultation today with one of our cosmetic doctors to learn more about treating your double chin. See our double chin page for more information.

The absolute best in Sydney. I would not go anywhere else to get anything done. Everyone I have encountered at this clinic has been so extremely warm and professional and put in so much time and effort to truly achieve your desired outcome. Can’t recommend this place enough, do not waste your money elsewhere.
