In February 2017 a revolutionary new fat removal treatment was approved for use in Australia. The treatment is clinically proven to reduce fat under the chin also known as submental fat, helping to contour the jawline and improve appearance to this area.

These fat dissolving injections are a long-term solution to eliminating stubborn fat cells unresponsive to diet and exercise. 


The treatment contains deoxycholic acid (a substance naturally occurring in the body) and works to breakdown and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the treatment site, it dissolves and destroys the fat cells within that area.  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. As with other cosmetic procedures such as anti wrinkle injections or dermal fillers,

a consultation is required to determine if you are suitable candidate.


The following questions are part of the consultation process;

  • Have you previously had surgery to the face, chin or jaw?

  • Do you have a history of bleeding problems?

  • Have you previously had cosmetic injections?

  • Are you on any medications?


Treatment cannot be performed in;

  • Individuals with an active infection

  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding 


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.


After the injections the area can feel warm and prickly (similar to sunburn). This is usually worse in the hour following the 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.


After the procedure, swelling may remain from 4-6weeks while the deoxycholic acid dissolves the fat (an excellent indication for successful treatment).


Initial treatment involves 2 treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

The cost inclusive of both treatments is $2500.


Two treatments are the minimum requirement to achieve results, further treatments if required can be purchased on a case by case basis. Up to 6 treatments may be required for severe submental fullness.
