Nobody with a double chin looks attractive. Double chin is considered a sign of unhealthy lifestyle. It is accumulation of excess fat below the chin and around the neck, associated with sagging skin, appearing as an extra fold of flesh. It is more common in obese and elderly people, although some people with short neck and excess laxity of skin may also have double chin
A combination of different treatment modalities is usually required to achieve the best results for double chin correction. A lipolytic solution is injected to dissolve the extra fat. In addition, if there is associated laxity and sagging of skin, then surgical thread lift is done. Further, muscle relaxant may be injected in to the neck muscle (platysma) along the jaw line to define it well.
Lipolytic injections, also known as fat dissolving injections, is a non-surgical procedure to reduce or eliminate unwanted localised fat accumulation.
The active agent present in lipolytic solution is phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and
deoxycholate. Both these substances are produced by body itself.
When injected into the localised collection of fat pockets, these substances cause the fat cells walls to dissolve; the fat is then eliminated by the body’s metabolic process. By reducing the number of fat cells in the area, the amount of fat stored in the area is reduced.
PPC is being therapeutically used since 15 years and is considered extremely safe.
