Chin Fat Dissolver

Chin Fat Dissolver is it the answer to your double chin?

The neck and chin is an area that bothers many patients, chin fat dissolver could be a solution for you. Fullness under the chin or a ‘Double Chin’ is often caused by either ageing, genetics or weight changes. Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise that little pocket of fat doesn’t change, and can make you look older and heavier than you actually are. In the past the only option to remove this was with liposuction or a neck lift via the surgical route, however, now Dr Briggs offers an injectable product that permanently dissolves fat. It is a clinically proven product that reduces the appearance of submental fullness or the “double chin”.

Chin Fat Dissolver

It works by using deoxycholic acid to break down the fat, this acid is a natural occurring substance within the body and already works to break down and absorb dietary fat.

Chin Fat Dissolver - FAQs

Retreatment is not expected with this product, once you have run the full course you shouldn’t expect to see your double chin again.

Each patient differs depending on how much fat is present. The treatment varies from 2-6 sessions, however the vast majority see visible results within 2-4 sessions.

Not every person is a candidate for this treatment. The fat must be pre-platysmal, your doctor will be able to determine this from a quick examination.

The session is relatively quick lasting from 15-25 minutes. Patients will have between 2-6 sessions with 6-8 weeks between each session.

The injections can be a little stingy. Your doctor will use different methods to counteract this effect, you can discuss this with them during the consultation. Dr Briggs uses local anaesthetic meaning the treatment itself completely painless, you will only feel the needle of the anaesthetic.

The treatment consists of your doctor marking a grid on your submental fat area. They will then inject a series of small injections into the area. Post treatment the area will be warm, a little pink and it will be swollen. With this product lots of swelling is GOOD – it means the product is working and the fat is dissolving.  The first session the patient  may not see a difference, however after the second session vast improvements will start to be visible.
