Sculpt the perfect profile Understanding Under-Chin Fullness

Under-chin fullness, also known as a ‘double chin’ can be due to a variety of factors including:

  • Excessive under chin fat (most common).
  • A weak under-projected chin, this reduces the angle between the chin and neck making it appear as if a double chin exists. This is known as a ‘pseudo double-chin’.
  • Genetics.
  • Overly loose neck skin due to loss of collagen as a part of the ageing process.
  • Weight gain.

Under chin fat (Pre-platysmal fat) sits above a large thin sheet of muscle called the platysma (pre-platysmal fat). This fat tends to stubbornly remain despite our best efforts to remove it with diet and exercise. This fat sits close to the skin, making it easily amenable to treatment.

Multiple treatment options exist including fat dissolving injections, CoolSculpting and under-chin radiofrequency assisted liposuction.

The ideal treatment option depends on your tolerance of downtime/swelling, expense and whether you prefer minimally invasive vs non-invasive options.

What are my options for under chin sculpting?

There are several options for under chin sculpting. The choice of option depends on whether you are concerned about laxity of neck skin, stubborn under chin fat, potential recovery time, the speed results are seen or the invasiveness of the procedure.

Contour Clinics have the widest range of under chin sculpting treatments in the country. These include:

Fat dissolving injections

  • Targeted under chin injections melt away fat with minimal discomfort and short recovery time.

Under chin Coolsculpting 

  • Completely non-invasive with no downtime. See our Coolsculpting page for more information.

Facetite under chin radiofrequency assisted liposuction

Skin tightening options:

  • Using radiofrequency delivered with 24 micro-needles, the Morpheus8 is the worlds most effective skin tightening device. See our Morpheus8 page for more information.
  • Completely painless and non-invasive, the Tempsure tightens and tones an ageing neck. This is a perfect option for those with no tolerance of downtime, pain or invasiveness. See our Tempsure page for more information.
  • PDO Mini threads tighten and tone mild degrees of skin laxity rejuvenating and sharpening an ageing jawline. See our Threadlifting page for more details.

Under chin Fat Dissolving Injections

  • Fat dissolving injections use a compound called deoxycholic acid. This substance is present naturally in your digestive tract and is used to digest dietary fats.
  • Targeted under chin injections melt away fat with minimal discomfort and short recovery time.
  • Once these fat cells have been destroyed, they are no longer able to store fat.
  • Performed under local anaesthetic in office, this treatment takes less than 10 minutes.
  • The results of under chin fat dissolving injections are permanent. Once fat cells are removed, they do not return.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do fat dissolving under chin injections work?

These injections use a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is one of the natural substances our body uses to absorb dietary fats. Our medical professionals inject the TGA approved substance into the tissues under the chin. Treatments are administered with ultra-thin injections to the desired area. This disrupts fat cell membranes, allowing the body to safely metabolise and excrete fats naturally. Once disrupted, fat cells are unable to store any further fats, leading to permanent results.

Are fat dissolving injections safe?

Yes. These have been approved as safe and effective by the FDA and TGA for use in dissolving fat under the chin (Submental fat).

Risks associated with this treatment are rare.

What are the side effects of fat dissolving injections?

Side effects from this treatment are rare.

The most common are swelling and occasional bruising that resolve over the course of 2 weeks.

How long do under chin fat dissolving injections take to perform?

Under chin injections take 2-3 minutes depending on the degree of under chin fullness.

Before these injections take place we mark out the treatment zone, taking care to avoid important anatomical structures. Your cosmetic expert will then completely numb the area with local anaesthetic to ensure your comfort during treatments.

Do fat dissolving injections really work?

Yes. These injections have proven efficacy and have been approved for use by the FDA and TGA.

Check out our before and after results above to see for yourself.

Do fat dissolving injections hurt?

At Contour Clinics we ensure your comfort at each step of the process. Using a combination of numbing cream and local anaesthetic, we ensure discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum.

Fat dissolving injections can be incredibly painful if local anaesthetic is not used. We believe local anaesthetic is mandatory when injecting this area.

Once the local anaesthetic wears off in 1-2 hours you may feel a slight discomfort or ache. This is uncommon and can be helped with paracetamol and icing to the treatment area.

Do fat dissolving injections get rid of cellulite?

No. Unfortunately, cellulite is a very difficult concern to treat. There are many other cellulite treatment options far superior to fat dissolving injections. Check out our cellulite treatment page for more information.

Where can fat dissolving injections be used?

Fat dissolving injections have been used in many areas of the body with great success. These include:

  • Under chin
  • Jowl fat
  • Bra fat
  • Above knee fat
  • Small pockets around the abdomen

Currently, the use of fat dissolving injections are limited to small areas. We don’t recommend treating large areas.

Who can't have fat dissolving injections?

You are unable to have fat dissolving injections if you are:

  • pregnant
  • breastfeeding
  • have a hypersensitivity/allergy to fat dissolving injections
  • have an active infection/skin condition over the area to be treated

Your Cosmetic professional will ensure you are safe to have

How fast do fat dissolving injections work?

Fat dissolving injections work by dissolving fat cell membranes using deoxycholic acid. This is a substance present naturally in our digestive tract.

Once fat cell membranes are destroyed, your body’s immune system clears them away over the course of 6-12 weeks.

Full results are seen 3 months after your treatments.

Who can administer fat dissolving injections?

Fat dissolving injections are a schedule 4 prescription medication. This means a prescription from a medical doctor is required prior to treatment. In Australia, only medical doctors, or registered nurses under the supervision of a doctor can administer fat dissolving injections.

Are fat dissolving injections permanent?

Yes. Any fat cells dissolved as a result of treatment are removed permanently.

Are fat dissolving injection results instant?

No. Full results can be seen 3 months post treatment.

How many sessions of fat dissolving injections are required to see full results?

We recommend at least 2 sessions spaced 1 month apart. Some patients with more severe grades of under chin fullness require up to 4 sessions in total.

How does under chin Coolsculpting work?

Under chin Coolsculpting works by freezing excessive under chin tissues to minus 11 degrees Celsius. We know that at these temperatures the skin/blood vessels/nerves are not damaged. Fat cells however cannot stand these temperatures for a prolonged period of time and undergo a self destruction process called ‘programmed cell death’. The fat cells membranes break apart and release their contents, which are metabolised by the body. The destroyed fat cells are then cleared away by the body’s immune system over the course of 6-12 weeks.

Does Coolsculpting under the chin work?

Yes. This is an amazingly effective treatment for the removal of under chin fullness. Check out our before and after gallery above to see for yourself.

Is Coolsculpting under the chin safe?

Yes. This is a non-invasive technology that has been approved as safe and effective reduction of under chin fat by the FDA and TGA.

What are the potential side effects of Coolsculpting?

Coolscuplting is a safe and effective treatment with few side effects.

The most common include swelling/bruising, which is mild and short-lived and tenderness in the treated site.

When can I see the results of Coolsculpting?

You can notice results 4-6 weeks post treatment, with full results seen 3 months post treatment.

How many under chin Coolsculpting sessions will I need?

Typically, you need 1-3 sessions in total to achieve your desired result.

Are all under chin fat freezing machines the same?


Engineered at Harvard, Coolsculpting is the premier fat freezing technology on the market. With an inbuilt condenser, Coolsculpting guarantees delivery of a therapeutic cooling dose to the treatment area. This ensures results with minimal discomfort as compared to inferior technology.

There is no comparison when it comes to comfort and effectiveness.

There are many cheaper fat freezing modalities on the market. When it comes to fat freezing, you really do get what you paid for. Don’t short change yourself. Choose Coolsculpting.

How does facetite radiofrequency assisted liposuction work?

Facetite radiofrequency assisted liposuction delivers radiofrequency energy to melt stubborn under chin fat.

Following local anaesthetic to the treatment area, a blunt facetite probe is inserted just under the skin into the subcutaneous fat layer of the under chin. Controlled energy is then applied to these fat cells which causes targeted destruction of under chin fat cells. These are then removed via gentle aspiration to create an aesthetic contoured under chin region.

Unlike traditional liposuction, the facetite delivers a controlled heating causing a contraction and tightening of the overlying skin. This leads to superior neck contouring results.

Is facetite radiofrequency assisted liposuction safe?

All medical procedures carry risk. This technology has been approved as safe and effective for the use of under chin fat reduction by the FDA and TGA.

Is facetite radiofrequency assisted liposuction effective?

Yes. This is one of the most effective options for under chin fat reduction and neck tightening. See our before and after gallery for more details.

When will I see results after facetite under chin radiofrequency assisted liposuction?

Full results can be seen 3 months post treatment. Most patients notice a significant reduction in under chin fat within 4 weeks of treatment. See our before and after gallery above to see for yourself.

How does facetite differ from traditional liposuction?

Facetite delivers controlled radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells, allowing the probe to glide through the subcutaneous tissues without significant trauma. This means less bruising and swelling, and less risk of irregular results due to missing areas. In addition, the delivery of radiofrequency energy causes a bulk heating of the skin and subcutaneous tissues leading to an impressive contraction and tightening of the overlying skin.

Traditional liposuction bluntly tears fat cells from their position. This is a traumatic process leading to significant swelling and bruising. Traditional liposuction procedures do not lead to any tightening of the overlying skin.

How many Facetite sessions will I need?

This is a one-off treatment. Fat removal is permanent, while skin tightening lasts 5-7 years.

How do I choose the best option for me?

The choice depends on a few factors including:

  • Post procedural swelling- Common with Facetite and Fat dissolving injections.
  • Number of sessions- Facetite is a one off treatment, the other modalities often require several sessions.
  • Invasiveness- Coolsculpting is non-invasive, Fat dissolving injections use micro needles and the Facetite requires local anaesthesia with a subcutaneous probe used to deliver fat dissolving and skin tightening energy.
  • Upfront expense- All the options offfered at Contour Clinics are similarly expensive for a complete treatment course. The Facetite is a one off treatment, and as such has a larger upfront cost. See our Facetite page for more information.
