Fat dissolving injections (also known as injection lipolysis) are a powerful treatment that permanently break down fat cells.

Dr. Aaron is a leading provider of fat dissolving injections for the body. They are the ideal treatment for people with small, stubborn areas of fat, who are unwilling to undergo more invasive treatments such as liposuction, and who want more reliability than fat freezing treatments such as Coolsculpting. They only take a few minutes to perform, and are administered with very tiny needles or a blunt tipped cannula depending on the area.

Popular areas treated with body fat dissolving injections are:

  • bra bulge fat;
  • lower abdominal fat;
  • jowl fat of the jawline;
  • neck hump;
  • pockets of fat missed during liposuction;
  • banana roll (fat at the upper posterior thigh, just under the gluteal fold).

Fat dissolving injections for the chin, neck and body in Melbourne

Were you aware that more than 60% of Australian men and women have stubborn areas of fat that they wish was gone? Stubborn fat can plague almost any area of the body, including the neck, jowls, under chin, abdomen, back, legs and ankles.

Exercise and diet can only get you so far. For those stubborn areas of fat that won’t go away, fat dissolving injections can permanently melt away the fat for good!

Now, there is a treatment option to remove fat without liposuction or invasive surgery. Fat-dissolving injections can quickly improve a double chin, remove jowls, slim the legs and ankles (or cankles!), and improve the shape of your body.

Fat dissolving injections provide a safe, effective and no downtime treatment option for those looking to reduce unwanted fat without surgery.

Permanently remove unwanted fat with fat melting injections

There’s nothing more annoying than seeing a small bulge of fat when you wear your favourite clothes, or when you see a double chin or heavy face in photos. Fortunately, fat-melting injections can permanently remove these stubborn fat pockets. Whether it’s a dreaded double chin, saggy jowls, bulges of bra fat or something else, fat dissolving injections for excess fat on the body and face can help you feel confident in your own skin.

What causes stubborn fat?

Stubborn fat is rarely due to simply being overweight. If it was, it wouldn’t be known as stubborn! Typically, many of us have small areas of excess fat that just doesn’t seem to slim no matter how much exercise we do, or how good our diet is. these stubborn areas of fat are often due to a combination of things such as:

  • Genetics: Our genes play a big part in who we are and how we look. Genes dictate our tissue quality and can predispose some people to developing excess fat in certain areas such as the jowls, double chin, and the back of the neck.
  • Age: As we get older, our tissue quality changes. Many people find that over time, they gain fat in specific areas of their face and body, while other areas remain thin.
  • Sex: Males and females generally have different distributions of fat. Some are more prone to excess double chin fat, others are more prone to excess belly fat.
  • Hormones: Differences in hormones can cause some people to gain weight in certain parts of the body that just don’t seem to go away.

What can I do about fat that won’t go away?

If you struggle with stubborn areas of fat on the face, neck or body then you have probably come across many different pieces of advice about how to combat excess fat. Many strategies often don’t have any evidence behind them, and can often leave you feeling disappointed and defeated. Diet and exercise are great places to start, but can only get you so far. It’s important to see your local doctor if there are any concerns of an underlying health cause of excess fat. For those that still find the fat just won’t shift, there is a range of proven solutions. Liposuction is the most effective and is suitable for those willing to undergo a more invasive procedure who can have some time off work. Liposuction is also good for people wanting to improve multiple areas of their body, who want more dramatic changes with larger volumes of fat removed. Sculpting devices can help to contour your body, reducing fat and building muscle without surgery. But these often take a number of sessions. Fortunately, there is another solution that gives an option between the two, fat dissolving injections for the chin, jowls, neck and body.

Fat dissolving injections are quick, safe, evidence-based and effective. Best of all, the results are permanent. Fat-dissolving injections, also known as lipolysis, use a naturally occurring compound to permanently break down fat cells. Injections to remove unwanted fat can be done almost anywhere on the body. The most popular areas to inject fat dissolver are the under chin, jowls, neck hump, bra bulge fat, back, abdomen, thighs, knees and ankles. There may be some mild swelling, but you’ll be back to your day straight away, as the treatment has almost no pain, and no real downtime. You’ll notice the final results after 8 weeks, as it takes time for the body to process that fat that has been injected. The best results from fat dissolving injections generally require two treatments spaced apart by 8 weeks. Although those with larger deposits of excess fat may need more treatments.

Fat dissolving injections, while possessing many benefits, also have their limitations. Most people need at least 2 treatments, and sometimes up to 6, and it is not appropriate for treating large areas of fat. Sometimes, diet and exercise is simply the way to go. Liposuction will achieve fast results but has higher risk, initial cost, and downtime, and with today’s fast-paced lifestyle, does not work for many people who frequently elect for the non-surgical, lower downtime fat dissolving injections.

Where can fat dissolving injections treat?

Double chin

Injections directly to the double chin (Submental fat) can reduce the volume and heaviness, and give you a sharp and defined jawline.

How does bra bulge fat dissolving treatment work?

Bra bulge treatment uses fat dissolving injections (like those used to reduce a stubborn double chin) to break down fat cells. In some people, fat cells are more prone to be larger. This can be due to things like genetics, hormones and weight. In certain areas of the body, including the bra bulge, genetics, age and hormones play a larger role than weight, making the bra bulge fat a stubborn area to treat. Fat-dissolving bra bulge injections work like a dart popping a balloon. Once injected, the fat dissolving product breaks down the fat cells.

Most people have some mild swelling after their bra fat injections, but this settles quickly. The bra bulge fat that has been dissolved is then processed by the body over 6-8 weeks. At this time, you’ll see an improvement in the bra bulge area which now has less fat. Most people need two treatments, although those with very large deposits of bra fat may need more.

Are bra bulge fat dissolving injections safe? What are the risks?

Dissolving bra bulge fat is very safe. Aside from some mild swelling and bruising, some people find that the injected area may be slightly tender for a few days. Occasionally, the treated area may feel firm and number for a few weeks, but this settles on its own. Very rarely, you may not see a big difference in your results. In this case, liposuction of the bra fat may be a better option.

Permanently treat jowls with fat dissolving injections for a defined jawline

The dreaded jowls. Many a jawline has been ruined by the heavy sagging jowl fat that seems to emerge from nowhere. Most commonly a problem as we get into our 40s and 50s, jowl fat is generally caused by a combination of stubborn fat and sagging skin. Short or a facelift surgery for sagging skin, historically there hasn’t been many treatment options. That was until fat dissolving injections for the jowls happened. Jowl fat injections are now available in Melbourne and provide a safe and effective way to permanently reduce stubborn jowl fat without surgery.

What are jowls?

Jowls, jowl fat, or jowling, refers to the heavy, sagging skin that affects the lower face and jawline. Jowls develop as we age and gain weight, as the face becomes fuller, and as the skin loses elasticity. Jowls can make you appear overweight and older by giving you a heavy look, with a loss of the definition of your jawline. Many healthy people suffer from jowls, even those of normal weight. Jowls are one of the most bothersome areas of stubborn fat that is hard to shift with diet and exercise.

Treatment options for jowls include facelift surgery, liposuction, thread lifting and fat dissolving injections. Jowls can also be disguised by injecting dermal fillers to the jawline and chin. The best approach to treating jowls is either surgery with a facelift or liposuction, or a combination of jowl lifting threads, jowl fat dissolving injections, and jawline fillers.

How do jowl fat dissolving injections improve the jawline?

If you’ve noticed that your jawline doesn’t look as defined as it used to, or that you have heavy, sagging face skin that is sitting below the jawline, then jowls may be the cause. Jowl fat is stubborn and affects many people. the stubborn fat and sagging skin interrupt the natural contour of your jawline. This makes you look older and heavier than you are. The best treatment for jowls involves reducing the jowl fat and lifting and tightening the sagging skin. Jowl fat injections permanently break down excess jowl fat with a process known as lipolysis. Essentially, lipolysis of jowl fat can be thought of as darts popping balloons. Once popped, the fat cells are then gradually eliminated from the body over 6-8 weeks. Reducing stubborn jowl fat with injections is an effective way to restore the contour and definition of your jawline. The best way to have a younger, more defined jawline is to combine jowl fat-dissolving with treatments to lift and tighten the skin. This can be done with a thread lift for sagging skin, collagen stimulating injections and dermal filler injections for the chin and jawline. Alternatively, you could have internal skin tightening and a non-surgical facelift using Facetite with liposuction if you want more pronounced treatment results for sagging skin, and can tolerate a few days off work.

How much do jowl fat dissolving injections cost in Melbourne?

The cost of fat dissolving injections for the jowls costs $1000 per treatment. Most people need two treatments, depending on the amount of jowl fat that needs to be treated.

Are jowl fat dissolving injections safe? What are the risks?

Jowl fat injections are very safe. Using a naturally occurring fat-dissolving compound, the fat cells are permanently broken down. When treating the jowls with fat dissolving injections, there will be some swelling, so you may want to take it easy for a day or two. Occasionally, some bruising can also occur.

Very rarely, jowl fat dissolving injections may cause a temporary stunning of some nerves along the jawline. This can weaken your lower lip for a few weeks, but this will fully recover on its own.

Remove stubborn areas of unwanted fat without surgery using fat dissolving injections

Fat dissolving injections are now available in Melbourne and can be used on almost all areas of stubborn fat.

Treat abdominal fat, knee fat, cankles and thigh fat with injections

Bothered by stubborn fat on your body? Fat-dissolving injections can be used on many stubborn areas of fat including the jowls, thighs, ankles and abdomen. They work best for small stubborn deposits of fat and are also a good option if you are looking for a non-invasive option.

Those with a more pronounced deposit of stubborn fat may be more suitable for liposuction, although fat dissolving injections can be a good place to start.

Injectable fat dissolving, sometimes called lipolysis, has been around for many years. It has stood the test of time due to its reliability and convenience.

What areas can be treated with fat dissolving injections?

Fat dissolving injections can essentially treat any area of stubborn fat on the body. The ideal treatment involves lipolysis injections to smaller areas of fat, that doesn’t seem to shift with diet and exercise. While larger areas can be treated, there can be very pronounced swelling, and for these cases, liposuction is a better option.

The most common areas of stubborn fat injected include the jowls, under chin and bra bulge.

Fat dissolving injections have a very good satisfaction rate and help people feel more confident with their appearance with permanent results.

How to effectively remove fat without surgery

Permanent fat reduction is now possible without surgery. Fat-dissolving injections provide a safe, reliable and quick treatment option to permanently reduce stubborn fat. Body contouring devices are another option that are more conservative than lipolysis injections. They generally require more sessions and have more subtle results.

The best treatment option will depend on your goals and if you can tolerate downtime. The treatments to permanently reduce unwanted fat are liposuction, fat dissolving injections and body contouring devices. Sometimes, a combination of fat reduction treatments is needed to get the results you want.

Some people ask if their skin will sag after reducing the unwanted fat. This is possible if the skin is saggy to begin with, so it’s important that your practitioner is experienced in assessing stubborn fat pockets to know if you’re a suitable candidate. Dr. Aaron has helped many people permanently reduce unwanted fat, and is experienced in assessing the area to know whether or not the treatment is right for you. If there is a possibility of saggy skin after your treatment, then you may need to explore other options to tighten the skin first. Depending on the area, treatments like internal tightening with Facetite, Necktite or radiofrequency heating can be ideal. If something more conservative is preferable, radiofrequency skin needling is a way to tighten and shrink wrap loose skin, giving a natural rejuvenation to the skin by restoring collagen.

How many fat dissolving treatments will I need to see results?

Most people need to undergo two fat dissolving treatments to see the best results. For those with larger areas of fat, or more dense and fibrous fat, more treatments may be required. However, you should see an improvement with every treatment. The total number of fat-dissolving treatments you will need will depend on how much of a difference you want. If after one treatment, you are satisfied with the improvement, then there is no need for additional fat dissolving treatments.

Do you get swelling with fat dissolving injections?

Most treatments with fat dissolving injections to the face and body will cause a degree of swelling. The amount of swelling is different for everyone, and generally, swelling is a sign of a good effect of the treatment. The areas that tend to swell the most with fat dissolving injections are the jowls and double chin. Ways to minimise swelling after fat dissolving injections include:

  • applying an ice pack on and off for a few hours;
  • sleeping on an extra pillow for a few nights after your treatment;
  • avoiding intense exercise and hot environments for 48 hours after your fat dissolving injections.

Usually the first fat dissolving treatment has the most pronounced swelling, although for most people it is only moderate. Each additional fat dissolving treatment generally has less and less swelling.

The technique used during your procedure will also affect how badly you may swell and bruise. Swelling and bruising from fat-dissolving can be minimised if the practitioner uses local anaesthetic and adrenaline with the fat dissolving treatment. Using a blunt cannula to inject the fluid also causes less trauma to the skin, reducing swelling and bruising, compared to injecting fat-dissolving with a needle.

Dr. Aaron uses a cannula and strong local anaesthetic with adrenaline to ensure your procedure is as pain-free as possible, and to ensure that swelling and bruising from the fat dissolving is minimised.

Why do I have stubborn areas of fat?

Almost everyone has a small area of stubborn fat. For some, they have heavy jowls or a double chin. Others find that excess bra bulge fat, fat at the back of the neck, or even extra fat on the calves, knee and ankles plagues them.

While being overweight can cause different areas around the body to become larger, there are a number of causes outside of your control that may contribute to excess areas of stubborn body fat.

Stubborn fat can affect many areas of the body including:

  • jawline jowls;
  • under chin, also commonly called the double chin;
  • back of the neck;
  • back and flanks;
  • abdomen;
  • bra bulge;
  • upper back of the thigh commonly called the banana roll;
  • inner knees;
  • ankles commonly referred to as cankles.

Stubborn areas of fat that don’t reduce with weight loss can be caused by:

  • genes;
  • hormones;
  • age.

Our genetics, hormones and age affect the quality and type of tissue in our body. Those with certain types of tissue are predisposed to having stubborn areas of fat that doesn’t improve with diet and exercise. Luckily, treatment options exist to permanently reduce unwanted fat. Fat-dissolving injections are a great walk-in walk-out treatment, while liposuction is the gold-standard treatment to reduce fat and contour the body, but has some downtime. Dr. Aaron offers both treatment options to ensure that no matter your preference, there is a permanent fat reduction treatment to suit your needs.

How do fat dissolving injections remove unwanted fat?

The compounds contained in the fat dissolving injections are naturally occurring substances found in the digestive tract. These substances assist in absorbing the fats that we eat. The way in which fat dissolving injections work is simple. They break down the cell membrane of the fat cells (adipocytes), a process known as lipolysis. Fat-dissolving can be likened to popping a balloon with a needle. Once the fat cells have been broken down, they are gradually processed by the body over 6-8 weeks. Once processed, you will notice that the treated area looks less full and more slim and contoured. Of course, some fat cells will remain, and if you gain weight they can grow. However, the amount of fat in the treated area will always be less compared to if you had not undergone fat dissolving treatment for excess fat.

It is important not to remove all of the fat, as fat tissue plays an important role in energy storage, temperature regulation, and in filling out the skin. If you remove too much fat, the skin can appear deflated with the appearance of a fine wrinkle. Ensuring only the right amount of fat is removed means that you can improve the shape of the treated area while maintaining a healthy and supple appearance of the skin.

The best ways to treat stubborn fat and improve your body contour

There are a number of treatment options to treat stubborn fat affecting the body. The right option for you will depend on how much fat you have, how many areas you would like to treat, how much of an improvement you would like, and your tolerance for risk and downtime.

Book your treatment

Treatment options to reduce unwanted fat:

  • diet and exercise: this is the most appropriate first-line treatment for reducing unwanted fat. This aside, some people find that either strict diet and exercise do not suit their lifestyle, or that the area of concern is more pronounced due to genetics, and doesn’t seem to shift no matter how activity they are or healthy they eat;
  • fat dissolving injections: this treatment is safe, simple, almost pain free and can be done in a few minutes. Aside from swelling, there is no downtime. Results take 8 weeks, and generally, at least two treatments will be needed. Fat-dissolving is most appropriate for small pockets of stubborn fat, or those wanting only subtle changes in the area of concern;
  • liposuction: this is the gold standard treatment for reducing unwanted fat and contouring the body. Combining liposuction with skin tightening can help to further contour the body. It is more expensive than fat dissolving, has more risk as well as downtime. It is more suitable for those wanting more pronounced results, and those who have more areas of concern, of higher volumes of fat;
  • fat freezing (cryolipolysis): Also known as Coolsculpting, this is the most conservative treatment option to reduce unwanted fat. It is non-invasive, requires multiple treatments, and generally achieves subtle improvements in the treated area. Fat freezing is very safe but carries a risk of causing the fat in the treated area to grow (known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia).

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes of double chin and small pockets of stubborn body fat?

The double chin (submental fat) and other small pockets of fat (such as the love handles and bra fat) are frequently related to genetics. As a result, these areas often don’t shift with diet and exercise alone.

Fat dissolving injections are a great option to improve small, stubborn areas of fat without surgery.

How do fat dissolving and double chin injections work?

Fat dissolving injections work by permanently destroying fat cells. They have a mix of compounds, some of which are found naturally in our body, and following the destruction of fat cells, the remains are metabolized and excreted naturally by the body.

Am I suitable for fat dissolving injections?

If you have small, bothersome, stubborn areas of fat, particularly around the lower abdomen, bra fold, or under the chin and want to avoid liposuction or invasive surgery, then fat dissolving injections may be the right treatment to help improve your concerns.

Am I suitable for double chin injections?

The ideal candidate for double chin fat dissolving injections has mild to moderate under chin fat, with good skin quality.

Those with very large fat deposits under the chin will be more suited to liposuction to ensure that they achieve satisfactory results.

What is the best treatment for stubborn fat?

Stubborn areas of fat can be treated in different ways depending on your budget, tolerance for risk, and expectations of results. Some options include:

  • fat freezing (Coolsculpting) – often with underwhelming and disappointing results, and with a risk of causing the treated fat to grow;
  • fat dissolving injections – much more reliable and consistent than fat freezing;
  • liposuction – the best treatment, requiring only one session, but with higher cost, risk and downtime.


Do fat dissolving injections hurt?

Traditionally, fat dissolving injections have been known to cause moderate discomfort.

Using anaesthetic with the treatment all but eliminates any pain.

Dr. Aaron uses very strong local anaesthetic, ensuring your procedure is comfortable.

How many fat dissolving treatments will I need?

Fat dissolving treatment is permanent. Generally, 2-4 treatments are required depending on how much fat is located in the area of concern.

How many vials will I need to treat my double chin?

The product used for your fat dissolving treatment is not measured in vials. The cost of your fat dissolving injections depends on the area treated, and how much fat there is. The cost of fat-dissolving is generally between $1000 and $1200 for most treatments.


Is fat dissolving treatment safe?

Fat dissolving is a safe treatment, with minimal risks and side effects. Some side effects of the treatment are as follows:

  • numbness;
  • firmness at the treatment site (known as induration)

There are a few very rare side effects. These include temporary smile asymmetry and swallowing difficulty. These are transient and will wear off on their own.

What are the risks of fat dissolving injections?

The main side effects seen with fat dissolving injections are swelling and redness that subside over a few days. There are rare side effects including damage to the skin, however with experience this is extremely unlikely to occur.


When will I see results from my fat dissolving injections?

Your results will be visible eight weeks after your treatment. During this time, the skin may appear slightly fuller than normal, and you may experience numbness and firmness to the skin. These all gradually improve with time.

How long do fat dissolving injections last?

As the product permanently destroys fat cells, the results will be permanent.

It is important to know that remaining fat cells can grow in size if you gain weight, however the destroyed fat cells cannot return.
