Lipodissolve involves a series of injection treatments for men and women who are bothered by excess fat under the chin and wish to improve the appearance of their chin profile. When the product is injected into the fat under the chin, the fat breaks down and destroys the cell membrane, allowing the body to process the contents of the cells as waste. Due to only a small amount of fat being dissolved during injections, your body can easily manage the treatment of unwanted fat cells without any negative impact on your liver or kidneys. Results are usually permanent unless the patient is prone to gain excessive weight.
For 8 to 12 weeks, the treatment permanently reduces fat and the double chin becomes smaller. Your double chin will be reduced without surgery. The amount of fat that breaks down varies from patient to patient and, therefore, the individual may need more than one treatment. We generally recommend 2 to 4 treatments for a perfect result. A maximum of 6 treatments should be administered at least 4 weeks between each.
Bruises are also expected in the treated area. The skin will be numb and there may be mild tenderness and hardness in the area for several weeks after treatment. Other common side effects may include swelling, mild pain after treatment, and redness.
If you are considering lipodissolve, you should first consult with specialists in plastic surgery and dermatology who are familiar with lipodissolve. Your treatment provider may determine if you are suitable for lipodissolve or suggest an alternative treatment.
