Phosphatidylcholine, deoxycholic acid PCDC is a cosmetic injection indicated for improvement in the appearance of submental fullness associated with submental fat in adults.  These fat dissolving injections are a long-term solution to eliminating stubborn fat cells unresponsive to diet and exercise.The result is not immediate, and a series of treatments may be required to achieve the optimal outcome.


The treatment area will be sterilised and marked with a special grid to enable precise delivery of the product. Small injections are then made into the fatty tissue. The procedure takes approximately 10-15 minutes.  Topical anaesthetic may be applied prior to the procedure and ice can be applied during the treatment to help numb the skin.  At the time of injection and for some time following you will experience swelling to the area while the deoxycholic acid dissolves the fat (an excellent indication for successful treatment).


As with all cosmetic injectable procedures, side effects may develop, including discomfort, swelling, redness and bruising.  Simple pain relief such as Paracetamol can help.


Over the course of the following month the injections will cause fat cells to diminish in the treated area. A minimum of 2 treatments is normally required with the second treatment performed one month following the initial treatment.  Once a fat cell has been destroyed they are unable to store fat thus reducing the total amount of fatty tissue in the treated area. When the desired aesthetic result has been achieved, no further treatments are required. 


Treatment is suitable for men and women with moderate to severe submental fullness caused by genetics, the natural

ageing process or weight changes.
