The Double chin makes the person appear obese and older. The following treatments can be done alone or in combination depending on the severity of the concern.
A patented lipolytic solution is injected into the fat of the double chin, melting it and dissolving the appearance of the double chin in a few weeks.

Your queries answered by Dr. Chytra:
This is a decision that needs to be made by you and your doctor. His/her recommendation should be based on your unique situation, your age, anatomy, preferences and desired outcome, along with the amount of fat present under the chin.
Because the treatments available are quite different, side effects and recovery times vary. Individuals will also react differently to treatment so talk to your doctor about what to expect. The non-surgical methods ideally should have less downtime
Depending on the type of the treatment, the common side effects are bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. Mild swelling is expected but it usually subsides in a few hours.
