NON-SURGICAL DOUBLE CHIN SCULPTING
Double chin reduction treatment is a clinically proven, nonsurgical treatment to reduce the fat under the chin, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline.
Double Chin Factors
It is important first to be aware that a double chin does not always suggest excessive weight. If you drop all the excess weight, you won't be able to lose that fat under the chin. In addition, there could be a few other contributing factors:
- We lose elasticity and collagen while we age. Eventually, this can lead to a sagging of the skin and a prominent under-chin area.
- Genes can play a major role in the development of a double chin. If your parents struggled with this issue, then you might too.
- Skin elasticity is genetically determined. Muscle weakening in the neck and chin can be caused by poor posture. As the muscle atrophies, the overall sag becomes more pronounced.
We might not know precisely what causes chin fat, but it's definitely a combination of these factors. The double chin effect is the result of weakened skin elasticity and muscle tone along with fat deposits in the area.
Despite the benefits of exercising, there is little evidence to suggest significant results from this method. While surgical procedures are effective, such a drastic measure isn't for everyone, nor is it always affordable. Fortunately, there is another solution, fat dissolving injections for the chin. Results are visible in as little as four weeks after completing the process, which takes less than 30 minutes. We will inject deoxycholic acid, a synthetic form of this acid, into the submental fat under the chin with the assistance of our highly trained cosmetic professionals. The fat cells are broken down by this substance, which naturally occurs in our bodies. Normally, two treatments are necessary. The process takes a number of years to complete.
Double Chin Solutions
Fat dissolving injections are an effective non-surgical option for stubborn double chin fat. Under the chin is a pocket of fat known as 'submental,' which holds fat despite effort to lose weight. Fat cells are destroyed permanently with targeted injections, leaving a defined chin contour.
IS CHIN SCULPTING FOR ME?
Ideal candidates for Chin Sculpting double chin treatment are adults that are in good health and who cannot get rid of submental fullness. This treatment is not a tool for weight loss; rather, it is a neck and chin contouring procedure.
Even with diet and exercise, there are areas of the body where fat seems particularly stubborn and hard to get rid of. This includes underneath the chin, which is known as submental fullness or having a double chin. With Chin Sculpting, you can target this problem area in just 20 minutes with minimal downtime.
Chin Sculpting double chin treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that can contour the neck area and diminish excess fat from beneath the chin. It can be used as a non-invasive version of liposuction. Chin Sculpting is suitable for men and women who have submental fullness due to aging, weight gain or genetics. Dr Saras & Co now offer Chin Sculpting in their Annandale and Double Bay Clinics located in Sydney.
This procedure is a simple way to achieve your dream looks without any surgical intervention. Unlike liposuction and a neck lift, this is a relatively light cosmetic procedure which can give you a sleek jawline and a more defined overall facial contour in no time without any surgical complications.
Other benefits of double chin injections include:
- Eliminating fat under the chin
- Remove your double chin with no incisions
- No scars
- Minimal downtime
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatments.
Chin Sculpting can cause serious side effects, including injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site or trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects of Chin Sculpting.
When injected into fat under the chin, chin sculpting causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
