Jowl fat injections
Treat sagging jowls and reclaim youthful jawline contours with jowl fat injections. Jowls are the pockets of skin and fat that sag below your jawline with age. We use fat dissolving injections to reduce jowl fat, rejuvenating your lower face. The treatment also restores definition to your jawline.
How it works
Bothered by sagging jawline jowls? Face looking older and heavier? You can now treat your jowls without surgery using jowl fat injections.

Jowls are the pockets of fat and skin that begin to sag below your jawline.
They are a common sign of ageing, and are caused by an increase in jowl fat and a loss of jawline structure.
Jowls are caused by a combination of changes that occur in the face as we age. They are:
- A gain in fatty tissue in the jowl fat compartment
- Resorption of jawline bone tissue

What are jowls?
Jowls are the small pockets of fat the often develop with age or weight-gain, and begin to sag below the jawline. They are found towards the front of the jawline just adjacent to your chin.
Jowls give your face a heavy, saggy appearance and are one of the most common concerns among more mature people.
Correcting jowls often involves reducing the excess jowl fat, and lifting the jowl skin back above the jawline. Reducing jowl fat can be done easily with jowl fat injections. Lifting jowl skin will require thread lifting, or surgery. We can also contour your jowls with jawline fillers.
How injections can remove unwanted jowl fat
Jowl fat injections use deoxycholic acid and phosphatidylcholine to break down jowl fat cells. These substances are found in the gallbladder and are responsible for breaking down dietary fats, allowing them to be absorbed by the body.
When injected into jowl fat, the treatment breaks down fat cells. The fat cells spill out their cellular contents into the surrounding tissue. Over the next 6-8 weeks, to body gradually metabolises the cellular debris, reducing the volume of fat in the jowls.
Fat cells that have been removed from the jowls do not return. The treatment is a convenient option for those with heavy jowls. It’s a great way to restore more youthful contours to your jawline, and to look less saggy.
