Fat Dissolving injections are a safe and effective alternative to liposuction. Fat dissolving has less associated risk factors, downtime and cost.
A double chin can occur at any age, and its not exclusive to people who are overweight.
Buccula is the medical term for the double chin region. This sub-mental fat is often due to genetics or excess skin laxity. If you are experiencing stubborn fat pickets then this is the perfect treatment for you.

HOW DOES FAT DISSOLVING WORK?
Fat dissolving uses PHOSPHATIDYLCHOLINE [PTC] as the main ingredient to breakdown the fat. Although PTC is naturally found in the body the PTC used in lipodissolve is derived from soybeans. You should not have the treatment if you are allergic to soybeans. PTC is injected with very fine needles directly into the unwanted fat deposits. The fat is broken down into a soluble form and removed by normal liver and kidney function.
CAN YOU REALLY MELT FAT BY INJECTION?
Many years of extensive experience throughout Europe and America has shown this to be a very safe and effective way of removing fat from any stubborn area. For the success of this procedure anti-aging cosmetic practitioners like Charlie Ralph have been specially trained in an innovative lipolysis technique.
IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE?
Unlike liposuction and surgery, it is not associated with the risks of general anaesthesia or sedation, and the other complications of surgery. Charlie is proud to be at the cutting edge of lipodissolve, being trained through anti-aging Canterbury which was one of the first clinics to introduce the procedure and one of the most experienced in Melbourne.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
Swelling is to be expected, so going straight back to work isn’t advised. Rather, the recommendation is to ice the skin and rest. The swelling will usually go down within 48 hours but can take up to a week. For best results, two to three treatments one month apart are recommended.
ARE THE RESULTS PERMANENT?
When appropriate diet and exercise is maintained the results of the procedure are permanent.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Most clients experience bruising, swelling, heat, tenderness and sometimes pain in the treated areas. This can last up to 2 weeks. Because the symptoms are mild most clients continue their normal activities a few days after the treatment.
DOES THE SKIN SAG OR LOOSEN AT TREATMENT AREA?
As the fat is being removed, the skin tightens over the treated area; meaning there is no loose, sagging skin. This is one of the advantages over liposuction because the process is slow and the skin has time to tighten.
