What causes double-chin fat?

Submental or double chin fat is caused by various factors, including genetics, ageing, weight gain, and poor lifestyle habits.

  • Genetics can play a significant role in the distribution of fat in the body, including the submental area. As a result, some individuals may be more prone to developing double chin fat due to their genetic makeup.
  • Ageing can also contribute to the development of submental fat. As the human body ages, the dermal elasticity progressively declines, while the musculature and tissues in the submental and cervical region may weaken, causing the deposition of excess tissue.
  • Weight gain can cause an increase in submental fat as well. Consuming more calories than the body requires can result in the storage of fat in various areas of the body, including under the chin.
  • Unhealthy lifestyle practices, such as insufficient physical exertion or an intake of processed food items, may foster the onset of submental adiposity. These practices can lead to a rise in general body mass, thereby predisposing to adipose deposition in diverse regions, including the submental area.

Several factors can contribute to the development of excess fat in the chin, and individuals should consult with a registered medical practitioner or plastic surgeon to determine the most effective treatment options for their specific circumstances.

What are double chin injections?

Double chin injections, also referred to as submental fat dissolving injections, are a non-surgical intervention aimed at diminishing the appearance of a double chin. This cosmetic treatment entails the injection of a solution into the targeted submental region, where it exerts its action by breaking down and absorbing adipose cells.

The endogenous compound can help break down fats in the diet. It also acts as a detergent that breaks down the cell membrane of adipocytes, which leads to lipolysis and a more defined jawline.

The submental fat dissolving injection procedure is characterised by its brevity, lasting between 15 and 20 minutes, and by enabling patients to resume their daily activities at least 48 hours after the intervention.

The use of this intervention has proven to be effective in reducing the accumulation of submental adipose tissue and improving the facial profile. It represents a viable alternative to surgical interventions such as liposuction and facelifts.

How do double chin injections work?

The procedure involves the use of a fine needle to inject a synthetic form of a naturally occurring molecule in the body into the targeted area. The solution works by dissolving and absorbing fat cells, which the body then naturally eliminates over a period of several weeks.

To achieve optimal results, patients usually require a sequence of injections spaced 4-6 weeks apart, tailored to their specific needs and desired outcome. The number of sessions required may vary depending on the severity of the double chin and the individual's desired outcome.

It is important to note that not all patients may be suitable candidates for this treatment. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with certain medical conditions, and those taking specific medications should not undergo double chin injections.

Benefits of Double Chin Injections

There are numerous benefits to double chin injections:

  • Non-surgical solution: Double chin injections provide a non-surgical alternative to invasive procedures like liposuction or facelifts. They offer a less intrusive approach to addressing the concerns associated with a double chin.
  • Improved facial profile: Double chin injections can help reduce excess fat beneath the chin and allow you to achieve a more defined chin and jawline.
  • Minimal downtime: The treatment generally involves minimal downtime. However, it is crucial to note that individual experiences may vary. Different patients will heal differently, and have different pain thresholds and will therefore experience different recovery times for different activities.
  • Customisable treatment: Double chin injections can be tailored to meet individual needs and goals. The number of treatment sessions and the amount of product injected can be adjusted based on the desired outcome and the unique characteristics of each patient.
  • Long-lasting results: Double chin injections can provide long-lasting results, but it's also important to note that individual experiences may vary. The duration of the effects depends on several factors, including the specific product used, the patient's metabolism, and lifestyle factors.

How Double Chin Injections Are Carried Out at EST Clinic in Melbourne

If you choose to have your double chin injections with us in Melbourne, this is what you can expect:

Consultation

At your initial consultation at one of our Melbourne clinics, you will meet with either a Specialist Plastic Surgeon or an experienced Cosmetic Nurse who will assess your facial features and spend time understanding your concerns.

You will be able to ask any questions and discuss any concerns you may have to ensure you have all the information before you decide to proceed with any treatments. Once you’ve decided what’s right for you, we’ll come up with a personalised treatment plan suited to your individual needs.

Procedure

The procedure to administer the double chin injections is very quick and can take less than 15 minutes. Tiny needles are used to inject the natural substance into the targeted areas. Most of our clients say that they find the procedure pain-free, however, a numbing cream can also be used to further minimise any possible discomfort.

Possible risks and side effects

Like any medical treatment, double chin injections carry certain risks and potential side effects.

Possible side effects may include:

  • Temporary redness: It's not uncommon for the treated area to exhibit mild redness immediately after the injections. This redness usually subsides within a few hours or days.
  • Swelling: Some individuals may experience temporary swelling in the treated area. This can occur due to the body's natural response to the injections. The swelling typically diminishes within a few days or weeks.
  • Bruising: This occurs when small blood vessels near the surface of the skin are disrupted during the procedure. Bruises usually fade over time, but it may take several days or weeks for them to completely disappear.
  • Tenderness: The injected area may feel tender to the touch for a short period. This sensitivity is generally mild and should resolve within a few days.
  • Numbness, itching, or a feeling of warmth: Some individuals may experience temporary sensations such as numbness, itching, or a warm feeling in the treated area. These sensations are typically mild and transient.
  • Allergic reaction: Although rare, there is a potential risk of an allergic reaction to the injection. Symptoms may include itching, hives, swelling, or difficulty breathing. If you experience any signs of an allergic reaction, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention.

It is important to undertake a thorough medical and aesthetic assessment with an EST Clinic specialist prior to having any injectable or aesthetic treatment.

FAQs

If you have any more questions about double chin injections in Melbourne or any of our services, please don’t hesitate to contact us today. In the meantime, you can find our FAQs below that may provide the additional information you’re looking for.

Am I a suitable candidate for fat-dissolving injections for my double chin?

Determining whether you are a suitable candidate for fat-dissolving injections for your double chin will depend on various factors, including your overall health, medical history, and aesthetic goals. If you're a person with moderate to severe submental fullness and good skin elasticity, you may be a suitable candidate for double chin injections.
However, patients with certain medical conditions or taking specific medications may not be eligible for this treatment. It is essential to consult with EST Clinic to determine if fat-dissolving injections are appropriate for you.
Is the treatment painful?

The process and the patient's pain tolerance determine how much double chin removal hurts. Most patients report minimal swelling or irritation with non-surgical double-chin injections.
It is important to note that individual experiences may vary. Each patient has a unique healing capacity, pain tolerance, and recovery timeline for different activities. Consequently, the duration and intensity of recovery may differ from person to person.
How long does swelling last after double chin injections?

Swelling after double chin treatment is a common side effect that typically lasts between 2 and 4 weeks. The duration and severity of swelling can vary depending on individual factors, such as the amount injected and the patient's skin sensitivity.
We advise you to consult with one of our EST Clinic specialists to discuss any concerns and follow post-procedure care instructions to minimise swelling and other potential side effects.
When should I have double chin treatment before a major social event?

The ideal timing of double chin treatments before a major social event will depend on the type of treatment and the individual patient's recovery time. Patients who undergo non-invasive treatments should schedule the treatment at least 4-6 weeks before the event to allow adequate recovery time. Patients should plan their treatment well in advance of any significant social events.
How long does chin fat dissolving injection results last?

The longevity of the results of fat-dissolving injections can vary depending on individual factors such as the severity of the submental fullness, the number of treatments received, and lifestyle habits. In general, results can last from 6 months to 2 years, but maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain the outcome.
How many treatments will I need?

The typical patient usually undergoes 2 - 4 treatments. The number of sessions required depends on the size of the double chin and the desired aesthetic goals. It is recommended to schedule the treatments approximately 4-6 weeks apart.
This interval allows the fat-dissolving chemical to effectively eliminate fat cells while giving the lymphatic system sufficient time to eliminate the remnants of the destroyed cells from the body.
