What Happens During The Treatment And How Long Does It Take?
Your neck and chin area may be marked and then a topical anesthetic is applied to ensure comfort during the treatment. You will be in the treatment room for 20-30 minutes while the topical agent takes effect, but the injection part of the procedure takes only about 5 minutes. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin into the fat layer below the skin. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. After the injection is complete, the area is cleaned and a cold compress is applied to minimize swelling. Patient may continue to apply cold compresses every 2 hours for 15-20 minutes at a time during the first day.
