fat reduction

Submental fat or double chin as it is better known is a not uncommon complaint that can have significant detrimental impacts on individuals self-confidence and overall level of satisfaction in appearance.

Submental fat is often associated with weight gain, however, this is not always the case, and is seen commonly in those with a BMI in the normal healthy range. Furthermore, submental fat can be a stubborn area to see a reduction in fat even when following appropriate diet and exercise advice.

This has given rise to a number of different treatment options to reduce the submental fat beneath the chin with the purpose of creating a more contoured neck and jawline.

One of these options is the subcutaneous injection of deoxycholic acid, a prescription only medication that once injected into the submental fat permanently destroys the fat cells in the surrounding area. Once destroyed, fat cells no longer have the ability to store fat resulting in the slimming and tightening of the submental skin.

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring compound in the body that is involved in the regulation of fats and fat storage. Submental fat reduction, fat dissolving, and double chin treatments involve the administration of the medications into the submental area and usually requires 2 treatments, however, depending on severity may require between 2 – 6 treatments each spaced 4 weeks apart to obtain the desired result.

Due to the destruction of fat containing cell in the submental area the results are long-lasting and once the full treatment course has been complete, subsequent treatment is not required.
