Neck Fat Reduction – Double Chin Removal
Neck Fat Reduction
The appearance of neck fat can be quite bothersome. Seen as the double chin, a poorly defined jaw line and neck contour are common reasons that people consider having photographs taken from above while looking up and even pouting to improve these contours.
At our clinics we have a number of treatment options for neck fat. There have always been surgical options such as liposuction and neck lift surgery which are still very useful tools and preferable to some people when they want a single intervention and can afford a recovery period. There have been recent developments in non-surgical treatments for the double chin. We have had Coolsculpting available since 2014 which can be very helpful with an applicator designed specifically for this region. Tissue is drawn into the applicator, cooled over a period of one hour and then a proportion of the fat cells will undergo a natural decrease in number. The results will take 8 to 12 weeks to fully materialise and sometimes will be repeated to achieve the best outcome.
More recently a first class medication is injected into the area, and will similarly lead to a breakdown of neck fat of a proportion of the fat cells in a permanent way. The treatment area is mapped out and a regulated dose of the medication is injected based on clinical research.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What can I expect during the treatment?
The treatment area is mapped with a grid pattern, and administered through a series of small injections into the area. To ensure you remain comfortable during the procedure, a combination of local anaesthetic and cold packs are applied throughout the duration.
What is the active ingredient injected?
The active ingredient in this treatment for neck fat is the same product that the body produces to digest fat in the diet – deoxycholic acid. The substances used in the injections are not from animal or human sources but artificially created to the same formula.
Is there any downtime after the treatment?
Temporary swelling and some numbness may occur immediately after treatment however is completely normal and an expected outcome. As a result of the expected swelling following the procedure, this treatment is frequently carried out at the end of the week so that changes are back to normal for the beginning of the next work week.
