Do fat dissolving injections work?
Yes, fat dissolving injections will permanently rid you of the fat cells that form heavy jowls, lower cheeks and double chin. A destroyed fat cell will never return making this an effective non-surgical option. This is one of the most popular treatments on offer at ICCM.

How is the procedure done?
An assessment is required to ensure this is the right procedure for you, and if so, the treatment is performed with a series of small injections into the fat.
This should take roughly 20 minutes, after which you may be given some pain killers to handle the discomfort post-surgery. A consultation will be required to ensure this is right for you.
How many fat dissolving injections will I need?

Are the injections painful?
Pain thresholds vary, however, our expert team can numb the skin in the area we are targeting the fat to dissolve to make the experience more comfortable. After the injection, patients have reported that the area may feel as if it has been sunburnt.
All of this is temporary, however, and will settle over the following hours as you recover with little downtime while the treatment works to dissolve the fat in your heavy jowls, lower cheeks and double chin.
Can I go to work after my treatment?
While you can return to work post-procedure, we recommend resting at home and icing the skin to help speed up your recovery process. Our team will provide you with full post-procedure instructions to ensure you have a smooth recovery period.

Fat dissolving injections work by using deoxycholic acid, which is injected into the double chin area to destroy the fat cells permanently. This process is called adipo cytolysis.
Once destroyed by this treatment, these cells cannot store fat again.
The best-suited patient for this treatment is anyone who suffers from a large amount of fat in the chin, jowls or lower cheeks. If you have tried exercise and diet but seen no improvement to the tone of these areas, this may be the procedure for you.
The primary side effects from the fat dissolving treatment are only mild and will subside quickly.
The common side effects are:
- Swelling around the area injected
- Temporary numbness under the chin
- Warmth and redness
- Firmness under the chin
In very rare cases, temporary problems such as a weak smile or trouble swallowing have been reported. It is important to note that no ICCM patients have experienced any adverse effects apart from those expected for this or any of our other cosmetic procedures.
