Fat Dissolving Injections
We currently use Lipodissolve because it is a low-cost fat-dissolving injection. It is made up of a solution injected into the submental region. The solution disrupts fat cell membranes, allowing the fat content to be released and broken down (free fatty acids and glycerol) and then leak into the surrounding tissue. Natural body systems transport them to the liver, where they are slowly metabolised and expelled from your body. It is effective, but a series of treatments is often necessary. Most people require two, but you may need more depending on the fat present. Lipodissolve also has a skin-tightening effect. All of our Doctors provide chin injections as a treatment option for our patients.
Chin Sculpting Without Surgery
Chin Coolsculpting, Cooltech, Clatuu
Chin Coolsculpting was the first available to treat unwanted chin fat. Later, Cooltech and Clatuu were added. All three machines use fat freezing or cryolipolysis to reduce fat by up to 20% in the treated area. We have a Cooltech machine, and while it is comparable in all other treatment areas, we believe it is not the best on the market for double chin removal. Clatuu is the best chin-sculpting cryolipolysis machine out of the three. A minimum of two treatments are required to reduce submental adipose, but this depends on the amount of fat around your neck. In addition, the freezing of fat has a skin-tightening effect.
Thread Neck Lift and PDO Thread Lift
PDO thread lifts are now the market’s fastest-growing aesthetic treatment. Initially developed for lifting and skin tightening on the neck and face, it was discovered to reduce submental fat, resulting in a novel treatment adaptation. When the tiny PDO threads are placed under the chin, it reduces fat and tightens the skin for double chin treatment. In addition, PDO threads can be combined with fat-dissolving injections.
Surgical Double Chin Treatment
Liposuction for Double Chin Removal
Chin liposuction is an option for double chin removal for more significant fat deposits. Double chin treatment with liposuction is a mechanical method of removing excess fat from the chin. It can remove substantial amounts of fat in a single treatment and is indicated for people with moderate to sizeable fat deposits. Although it is less invasive than neck lift surgery, it is still a surgical procedure that can result in bruising, swelling and discomfort for 2-4 weeks. Plus, the need to wear compression garments after the procedure. Chin liposuction does not cause skin tightening.
Double Chin Removal with Neck Lift
Surgery is an excellent double chin treatment when advanced neck sagging, loose skin and fat accumulation. A neck lift will tighten sagging skin, reduce necklines and wrinkles, and dramatically improve sizeable neck fat accumulation. It can be performed in combination with a facelift. However, there is significant recovery and downtime of 2-4 weeks and surgical and anaesthetic risks.
