Conditions Treated

Double Chin

Overview

Fat deposits in certain areas simply cannot be lost through diet and exercise, no matter how hard we try. An otherwise fit person can have unwanted fat in specific area such as under the chin. That’s where our treatments have helped many of our patients. These treatments are the permanent removal of unwanted fat cells to reveal a slimmer, more contoured profile. At Avenue Advanced Skin Care our approach is not just about fat loss, but rebuilding your self-esteem and confidence.

Our Approach

Under the guidance of Dr Allan Kalus, a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon in Melbourne, our team of doctors and nurses are trained in the art facial aesthetics and symmetry. Over the years, we have developed several new techniques that allow for more precise results, less bruising and rapid recovery. Having performed many procedures, we are able to select the most appropriate technique for you to provide you with the best contour improvement with as less downtime as possible.

Treatment Options 

Fat Dissolving Injections

Fat dissolving injections will permanently destroy the fat that accumulates under the chin. This fat is often genetic and may not be able to be removed by diet or exercise.

This is a two part procedure spaced 6-8 weeks apart resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing neck and a jawline that appears much more defined. There is no better non-surgical option to achieve this level of improvement.

This procedure is performed by Dr Maria Rachinskaya who is our General Practitioner and Cosmetic Physician. She has over 20 years of general practice experience, focusing on her passion for results driven cosmetic treatments which enhance not only her patient’s outer beauty but also boost their sense of self-esteem and confidence.

Micro Liposuction

Fat deposits in certain areas sometimes cannot be lost through diet and exercise, no matter how hard we try. An otherwise fit person can have unwanted fat in specific areas such as under the chin. That’s where our micro liposuction treatments have helped our patients.

This is a once off procedure to permanently remove unwanted fat cells to reveal a slimmer, more contoured jawline.

This is performed in clinic under local anaesthetic designed to treat areas about the size of your hand, and we believe is a quicker, more effective alternative to non-surgical methods.

This treatment is performed by our head plastic surgeon Dr. Allan Kalus. With over 20 years of experience he is both a skilled and a kind, compassionate doctor. Mr. Kalus is one of the premier plastic surgeons in Australia, and founded Avenue Advanced Skin Care after recognising the need for safe, medically proven and non-invasive treatments.

FAQs

Does Treatment Hurt?

This is a common concern for most of our patients.

Micro liposuction is performed under anaesthetic. Mild swelling and bruising is to be expected after the treatment, and may take up to a week to settle.

Some pain may be experienced whilst administering the Fat Dissolving Injections, however there generally isn’t any pain after and treatment is quite quick. Swelling is to be expected.

 

Can I Avoid Bruising and Swelling?

The best way to minimise bruising is to limit the intake of any blood thinning medications (such as aspirin, warfarin, or any type of anti-inflammatories) as well as over-the-counter blood thinners such as fish oils in the week prior to your treatment.

Swelling is to be expected with these treatments, however there are things you can do after procedure to minimise this such as cool compressing the area and sleeping face up with your head slightly elevated for the next few nights post treatment.

 

Our ‘no rush’ philosophy means we are able to take the time with each patient to be able to build strong relationships and provide as much care as needed.

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
