Injectable treatments that remove fat from the neck can be highly effective. They are relatively inexpensive and give permanent or very long-term results. Where the main issue is too much fat in the neck and under the chin and jawline, they are our preferred treatment. However, for patients who primarily have loose neck skin, they are not effective.
Fat dissolving injections use the body’s natural fat metabolising enzymes placed with small injections. Treatment is generally quite painless but there is some swelling afterwards, which can sometimes be quite significant for a few days. Results take around 2 months to materialise and sometimes more than one treatment is required. Reducing the fat under the jaw can make a massive difference to appearance, defining the jawline and improving the balance of the face in general.
