Double chin fat dissolving injections (deoxycholic acid) has arrived at Cairns Plastic Surgery.

This injectable product is available for the treatment of the double chin in both women and men. The fullness under the chin is a common concern and can be caused by ageing, genetics and weight changes.

Even with strict exercise and diet, this area may not go away and can make you look older and heavier.

The active ingredient is a synthesised deoxycholic acid. This acid occurs naturally in the body where it helps to break down certain fats. When it is injected into the double chin fat, the jawline and neck can result in a better profile and tighter skin. This product is only available within a clinic and the procedure is performed by a qualified, trained injector.

The treatment takes approximately 20 mins and you may require 2 – 4 treatments over a period of weeks to achieve the visible improvement. Each person has a customised plan to suit their needs but not all individuals are candidates for the treatment. Your clinician will assess the area and let you know if this product suits you.

Based on chin profiles, patients can feel happier, younger, less embarrassed and less self conscious.

The product is clinically proven to reduce the fullness under the chin. Visible results can be achieved in 2 – 4 treatments.

There is a period of mild to moderate pain or discomfort and some swelling associated with the procedure. Once your desired result is achieved, additional treatments may not be needed for at least 4 years.

Cairns Plastic Surgery offer free nurse consultations to assess the areas of concern around your chin and neck and discuss the best treatment for you.

This is a great non surgical option with minimal down time available from your clinician. Talk to us now on 07 4031 5755.
