The dewlap diminishes the definition of the chin and the facial oval. Origins can be genetic, overweight, lifestyle or aging. There is a non-surgical technique for fat reduction in this area .
The presence of fat in the lower part of the chin, known as double chin , is an undesirable process for the patient who suffers from it and, in addition, decreases the definition of the chin and facial oval.

Until now you could only see the result by means of a surgical procedure, such as liposuction or neck lift, not without risk and long-term recovery. Due to the possible risks of surgical techniques, they may not be of choice among patients who wish to reduce jowl fat.. In this case the treatment of Aesthetic Medicine can be a very acceptable alternative in the treatment of this localized fat.
Non-surgical chin removal treatment
This technique consists in puncturing at the level of the submental fat a lipolytic product , registered in the health sector, which is a cocktail of three synthetic chemical products of proven efficacy in the treatment of fats.. When this cocktail interacts with the membranes of the fat cells, it destroys them.
So, when you click on the subcutaneous tissue, which is where the fat is located, we get an adipocytolysis (destruction of fat cells).
Reactions and adverse effects of the chin reduction intervention
Adverse effects after chin reduction intervention are transient and barely perceptible. Some are:- inflammation of the area that lasts for hours- hematoma- local pain- pruritus- Paresthesia (exceptionally), with a sensation of numbness or tingling.
Also, macrophages in the area remove waste cells and lipids in the process of four weeks. After the injection there may be an increase in blood lipid levels, similar to those observed after a meal, without altering the global cholesterol levels. In contrast, triglyceride levels are degraded immediately, by the entire hepatic circulation.
Results of the non-surgical chin removal treatment
The results of this non-surgical technique are satisfactory in 90% of cases.
The sessions are held every month and the number of sessions will depend on the thickness of the fat in the area, although there are usually three sessions.
