The chin is a frequently overlooked but significant part of how you present yourself aesthetically. One of the likely reasons is that many people are unaware you don’t necessarily have to have surgery if your goal is to remove fat from the face. Several surgical and non-surgical chin fat reduction methods have pros and cons and are well suited to different situations. Let’s explore a few of them and learn more about how they work and what they can acheive if you involve one in your cosmetic enhancement and rejuvenation journey.

Chin Liposuction

While relatively minor as liposuction goes, it’s still a surgical procedure with both benefits and some downsides to consider. The positive is the results of chin liposuction; it is regarded as the gold standard for people looking to reduce submental fat. However, the downside of chin liposuction comes with the extra intensity that you can attribute to a typical cosmetic surgery procedure. In addition, there is a more intensive recovery process compared to things like Kybella, as after having liposuction on the chin, you will almost definitely have to take some time off work to recover properly. Another positive, though, is it often can be performed under local anesthesia; unlike some cosmetic surgery, this reduces the risks associated with having to go under general anesthesia. Finally, if you choose to have submental liposuction and remove a significant amount of fat, consider that you may require a neck lift after removing excess skin left behind.

Chin Implants

If your chin is looking worse for wear, but significant submental fat isn’t the issue, you may find this approach a suitable option. Using chin implants to shape the chin and jaw can help with a weaker chin lacking support. Again like chin lipo, it is a surgical treatment, so this is a consideration with this option. One definite con is that chin implants can often feel quite unnatural, which is where other therapies can fair far better in this regard, such as the next one.

Dermal Fillers

Like the previous, this treatment for a double chin doesn’t go about removing or reducing chin fat. Instead, the aim is to add support that is lacking elsewhere. As we age, one common area that suffers from volume loss is the cheeks that tend to hollow, reducing structure and support for the lower face. If the volume in the cheeks and jawline is restored often, the chin can be lifted and result in a smoother, tighter chin with a minor appearance of fullness as facial balance and proportions also improve.


Using the CoolMini, CoolSculpting uses cooling to freeze and destroy fat cells under the skin. It is typically considered less effective than Kybella, especially on more significant amounts of submental fat. However, it can be helpful if you are looking for a very subtle reduction in chin fat deposits when you are already in fantastic shape. Having treatment with the CoolMini is also non-invasive, which is one of the strong pros of this treatment option as it doesn’t require any injections. This is one option to consider if you want a quick and subtle enhancement that causes the absolute minimal impact on you and comes with an excellent risk profile as the skin isn’t even pierced.


On the opposite end of the spectrum, compared to CoolSculpting, you have WarmSculpting using SculpSure. Using WarmSculping on the chin uses targeted laser energy that penetrates the skin and heats only the fat-containing cells, resulting in enough damage to destroy them. This is one treatment for a double chin growing in popularity and seems to be becoming a popular non-surgical method of chin sculpting.


If you weren’t already aware of Kybella, it’s worth mentioning as it’s unquestionably one of the best ways to remove fat from the chin. This injectable treatment uses an enzyme already found in the body to break down fats in your diet. As a result, double Chin injections can be highly effective at reducing the volume of submental fat in your chin. If you are interested in getting double chin injections, book a consultation with a high-quality cosmetic doctor’s clinic like Skin Club in Melbourne. They are well-versed in providing a range of treatments to deal with an even broader range of aesthetic concerns.

Fat dissolving injections, also known as lipolysis or non-surgical fat reduction treatments, are not permanent. These treatments use injectable substances, such as deoxycholic acid or phosphatidylcholine, to break down and dissolve fat cells in the targeted area.

While the injected fat cells are permanently (results may vary for every person and its not guaranteed) broken down and removed by the body’s natural processes, the remaining fat cells in the area may still expand if the person gain weight.
