TREATMENT OPTIONS AND COMMON QUESTIONS TO DOCTOR

Fat dissolving injections?

 

 

  BEST FOR: if excess of fat (over 3 cm)

  COST: from $600

  DOWNTIME: 2-4 days

Fat dissolving injection is considered to be a lunch time procedure, although swelling is the most common side effect. Swelling is worse later the treatment day, then improve in a couple of days usually. More swelling post injection – better will be effect and skin tightening.
The medication used is similar to naturally occurring in the body  and has been in medicine for a long time.
Fat dissolving injections require few procedures – in clinical research it has been done from 4 to 6 injections to achieve significant results (Ref: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27340142 ), however, at VISTA Clinic Australia Melbourne we can see significant results after 1st injections, most commonly after 2 or 3.

Liposuction?

 Liposuction is a mechanical suction off the fat cells from double chin and jawline areas with contouring of lower face.

Chin Augmentation?

 

 

  BEST FOR: deficient or weak chin

  COST: from $250

  DOWNTIME: none, lunchtime procedure, but bruising possible

 

Bone of the chin provides support for soft tissues of jawline and fat under chin. When chin’ bone is too small in proportion to the face, double chin can appear even in young and not overweight people. Dermal filler restoration of the chin bone will provide tension, strengthening the jawline and lifting up excess skin under chin. Result lasts approximately 1 year. In case of severe chin bone deficiency, surgery of chin implant can be considered for longer lasting results.
