Are you unhappy with the fullness underneath your chin? Are you constantly finding the perfect selfie angle to hide the double chin? You can now reduce fullness under the chin with an FDA and TGA approved fat dissolving injection. Dr Maysa Abu Laban is amongst the first Doctors in Western Australia to offer this treatment.
How does it work?
The injection has recently been approved by TGA in Australia, and it offers a non-surgical solution for sub-mental fat. This injection is composed of synthesised Deoxycholic acid. This substance also occurs in the body naturally where it aids with the break down of dietary fat. Injections administered below the chin reduces fat, resulting in a more contoured neck profile and jawline.
What to expect on the day of the procedure
This injectable treatment is administered by the Doctor and takes approximately 15-30 minutes. The Doctor will administer a series of injection into the area under your chin at each session.
How many treatments will I need?
Patients treated with the fat dissolving injections experience visible improvement of their chin profile in 2-4 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. For some patients up to 6 treatments might be required in order to achieve their best results. Once your desired results are achieved, additional treatments may not be needed as results are maintained.
Are there any side effects?
As with other cosmetic treatments, you may experience side effects with this procedure. This may include pain and discomfort, swelling, bruising and redness. The swelling may persist for a few weeks post-procedure.
