What the treatment can do

Bothered by sagging jawline jowls? Face looking older and heavier? You can now treat your jowls without surgery using jowl fat injections.

We use fat dissolving injections to remove fat from your jowls. Your body metabolises the treated fat cells, which do not return. Reducing jowl fat restores jawline contour, and gives your lower face a lifted, more youthful appearance. Combining chin and jawline fillers with jowl fat injections can be done to optimise your result.

Let the team at Cosmetic Connection guide on your options to treat your jowls. They will assess and advise on your suitability for jowl fat injections. You can trust that we will perform your jowl fat injections safely, and with precision.

If stubborn pockets of jowl fat are giving your face a heavy, aged appearance, then jowl fat dissolving injections are an option to consider.


To ensure your jowl fat injections go to plan, follow our preparation guidelines:

  • Remove all makeup where applicable immediately before your appointment
