Is your double chin killing your whole look in each and every photo you take? Your face looks weird from some angles, and you can not even recognise yourself. You have tried enough diets and exercises to know that your fatty and saggy under the chin is stubborn and intent on remaining on your face. Do not be bothered with it. We have a solution. There are several cosmetic procedures available nowadays to improve and reshape any portion of your face and body according to your personal aesthetic goals. From your eyebrows to your under chin portion, anything can be improved for the better. 

At Skin Club Cosmetic Doctors, here in Melbourne, our experts will carefully listen to your problems and your goals and then determine what kind of treatment will suit you the best.  There are many available methods of double chin removal treatments, that can change the entire look of your lower face such as chin augmentation surgery or genioplasty, chin liposuction, dermal fillers for your chin, and the latest kybella injections for removing the fat under your chin and several others.

Let us know a bit more about both surgical and non-surgical forms of double chin removal treatment before going further.

Surgical cosmetic procedures have been available in the market for over a century. When we refer to ‘traditional’ treatment, we mean the surgical version of the treatment, as opposed to non-surgical versions which are more modern, and are becoming popular day by day. Genioplasty is the most popular surgical under chin correction procedure. 

Your doctor will use a medical-grade saw to cut and shape your chin bone, into the decided-upon shape relating to your expectations. This procedure is also known as an osseous genioplasty. Your doctor will typically recommend this surgical procedure if you happen to suffer from severe retrognathia. In this condition, your chin is too far back or far too forward to match the rest of your face. A sliding genioplasty surgery will definitely correct such a shape.

Chin implants are more popular and permanent in the traditional list of cosmetic chin correction surgeries. Implants are used to correct, enlarge, or push the appearance of the chin into a more symmetric position.

Surgical chin implants involve placing either a plastic or a silicon mound into your under chin portion and adhering it to the bone. The most commonly used implants for this procedure are alloplastic. 

On the other hand, the treatments for non-surgical under double chin removal treatments are getting rapidly popular every day. People are opting for non-surgical options due to a number of reasons. Kybella injections in Melbourne are the latest rage in the field of double chin removal treatments. These injections will help you reshape and contour your chin and double chin in just a few sessions. Kybella injections are also approved by the FDA. These injections act as long-term solutions for safely dissolving fat and keeping the fat from coming back. Kybella injections are made from a compound which is naturally produced in our bodies and hence is very safe to be injected on your lower face. Kybella injections are also non-surgical, fast and safe for your cosmetic goals taking about 30 minutes. Most people need about 2 – 4 sessions of this treatment to see complete results. Kybella injections can give you a confidence boost by making you look younger and sharper.

You may ask, non-surgical treatments like kybella injections need maintenance, so why should you even go for them in the first place instead of getting a more permanent solution like genioplasty? Let us tell you some downsides to surgical methods as compared to kybella injections.

When you opt for a surgical genioplasty procedure, it poses certain risks, let us look at some of those :

  • Double chin decrement can cause numbness on your lower face for 2 – 4 weeks after the surgery. 
  • Some bruising and swelling can occur after the treatment, which will fade within a few days.
  • There are also chances of drainage in the incision area
  • An invasive procedure which needs incisions to be made.
  • A longer healing process, which can hinder your normal routine for up to 2 weeks
  • Results of the procedure will be visible after you have healed and all your dressing has come off. 
  • The patient must keep their expectations from a genioplasty very realistic, and understand that the results may not be completely satisfactory.
  • If the result is not up to your expectations or you do not look like how you thought you would, a surgical procedure is harder to correct than non-surgical methods. 

Now, let us see how getting non-surgical kybella injections can help you out with lesser chances of any risk :

  • Very low risks –

Compared to facing surgical double chin removal treatment procedures, non-surgical double chin removal treatment will pose extremely low risks for you.

  • This is a non-invasive procedure –

  • 2 sessions will give you your desired chin shape – 

Depending on your skin and muscles, 3-4 sessions of kybella injections may be enough for you. If not, the doctor will recommend you another session for your desired results.

  • No irreversible side effects – Side effects mostly include some mild facial discomfort and swelling in the treatment area, which will go away after 24 hours from the time of the procedure
