Fat Dissolving/Chin Contouring

by medically qualified, trained and experienced Cosmetic Doctors.

Double chin/ chin contouring involves injecting deoxycholic acid (DCA) into the sub mental fat pad. DCA is a chemical that is found naturally in the human body that disrupts the cell membrane of fat cells. Being an acid that occurs naturally in our body, deoxycholic acid injections are an effective treatment that is fast working and very safe.

Double chins and sub mental fullness are common concerns in both women and men. The main cause is commonly ageing, changes in weight and genetics. Often it does not matter how much you exercise or even diet, the fullness in the chin may not ever go away. At Brisbane Cosmetic Clinic we now have cosmetic injections to improve the appearance of double chins and create better chin contour.

Patient journey

Pre treatment
Before any treatment, you will meet with your Doctor for a consultation to discuss whether this is the right procedure for you. Your Doctor will take a medical history and will ask specific questions. It is important to notify your Doctor if you are pregnant, if you are trying to become pregnant, if you are breastfeeding and also if you are taking any medications. Your Doctor will also discuss with you your motivations and expectations. It will be explained what anti-wrinkle injections can and can’t do for you and what type of results you can expect. Your photograph will be taken from different angles. These photographs are valuable for before and after assessments and long-term reviews.
