Our fat dissolving injections Sydney treatment involves a product that contains deoxycholic acid which works by breaking down cells in fatty tissue. Once the product is injected into the submental fat cell (double chin area) or any other small fat pocket of concern, the fat cells in the area are permanently destroyed by a process known as adipocytolysis. This causes an inflammatory response from the body that stimulates your immune system to clear away any damaged fat cells PERMANENTLY. The destroyed fat cells are excreted through your lymphatic system to never return.
Prior to fat dissolving injections, a comprehensive consultation is required with one of our expert doctors or nurses. The treatment is then performed in any one of our luxury clinics and takes approximately 15 minutes. The area of concern is iced to minimise any discomfort of fat dissolving injections. The doctor will then mark the treatment area to guide safe injection. A series of tiny needles or 2-3 cannulae are used to deliver the fat dissolving product. The amount of product required depends on the patient and how much fat needs to be dissolved. At the end of your treatment, the doctor will gently massage the injected area for 2-3 minutes to enhance the distribution of the product.
Results of fat dissolving injections take up to 4 to 6 weeks to be seen, and most patients require between 2 to 3 sessions for the best possible results.
