Injectable for Fat Reduction

Evolution of Procedure

Submental Fat Reduction

Until recently, the only treatment options available for submental fat reduction involved chin exercise, eating a healthy balanced diet, liposuction accompanied by a neck lift or chin augmentation, and laser-assisted liposuction. The downside to surgical options is they are risky, invasive, often times expensive, and there is a sometimes-prolonged recovery period. Due to the risk associated with surgery and invasive procedures, there has been a significant growth in nonsurgical aesthetic procedures for submental fat reduction.

Submental Fat

Submental fat, commonly known as double chin, is a common condition that occurs when a layer of fat forms over time below your chin. Multiple factors can contribute to the development of a double chin such as aging, weight gain, and genetics. No matter how much you exercise and monitor your weight submental fat may not go away without surgical interventions.
