What the treatment can do

Are you tired of stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge no matter how hard you diet and exercise? Looking for a safe, effective, and walk-in, walk-out solution to target those problem areas? Fat dissolving injections may be the treatment you’ve been searching for.

Fat dissolving injections break down fat cells, which are then metabolised by your body, and never return. This non-surgical treatment is ideal for reducing small fat pockets without liposuction. It allows you to enhance the contours of your face, neck and body with almost no discomfort. No surgery or downtime required.

At Cosmetic Connection, our medical professionals are experts in fat dissolving injections. Whether it’s stubborn fat in you double chin, bra bulge, jawline jowls, or somewhere else, we have the expertise to help.

Don’t let stubborn fat hold you back. We’re here to guide you through the process, provide a personalised fat dissolving treatment, and support you on your journey to a more sculpted look.


Fat dissolving injections offer a versatile and targeted approach to eliminating stubborn fat. It’s a safe, effective, and convenient treatment to improve contour and definition. It’s also precise, meaning we can target specific fat pockets without affecting surrounding areas. This ensures natural-looking results.

Fat dissolving injections can melt away small fat deposits almost anywhere on your body. They can even treat fat pockets missed during liposuction.

With fat dissolving injections, there’s no need for extensive downtime or recovery. Taking less than 10 minutes, the treatment reduces the number of fat cells in the target area, giving long-lasting results. We also use strong numbing to ensure your fat dissolving injections are almost painless.


Fat dissolving injections are an ideal option for people with small, stubborn pockets of fat that don’t shift with diet or exercise alone. We generally advise treating areas no larger than a credit card, with the most common common treatment areas including the under chin, bra bulge, jowls, and banana roll (just below your buttock creases).


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

  • Remove all makeup from the treatment area before your appointment
  • If applicable, shave or closely trim the applicable treatment area the day before
  • Avoid excessive alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment
  • Refrain from intense exercise right before your appointment
  • If you’re having face or under-chin treatment, consider scheduling your day with the awareness that mild to moderate swelling may occur


After your fat dissolving injections, proper aftercare is crucial for optimal healing and results:

  • Avoid makeup, excessive alcohol, and intense exercise until the following day
  • Apply a wrapped ice pack gently to the treated area to reduce swelling and bruising
  • It’s normal to experience some discomfort and swelling in the treated area
  • The treated area may feel firm and numb for a few weeks following the procedure


Experience an improvement in the contours of your face and body in just 8 weeks. Initially, you may notice a subtle fullness and slight numbness in the treated area. This reflects the metabolism of the treated fat cells, and gradually resolves.

Achieving your desired results typically requires 2-4 treatments, spaced 8 weeks apart. Fat dissolving injections permanently eliminate treated fat cells, ensuring long-lasting outcomes. Plus, if you happen to gain weight in the future, you’ll put less fat on in the treated area.

Determining your eligibility for fat dissolving injections is crucial. The medical professionals here at Cosmetic Connection have extensive experience in this process. Depending on your goals, we may recommend combining fat dissolving with dermal fillers. This can achieve superior results, targeting your concerns at their cause with precision and finesse.

    Weight gain and genetics are the usual causes of stubborn fat pockets.

    Genetics factors are why you can be normal or under weight, and still have areas of fullness.

    Some medications and medical conditions can also predispose you to developing fat deposits.

    Fat dissolving injections break down fat cells. They work by rupturing the outer cell membrane (like a dart popping a balloon). The contents of the cell are then released, and metabolised by your body. These cells do not return.

    Fat dissolver is a compound based on naturally occurring substances found in the digestive tract. These are deoxycholic acid and phosphatidylcholine, and help you digest dietary fats.

    Fat dissolving injections are perfect for people with small pockets of fat who don’t want liposuction. They can treat excess fat on almost all areas of your body.

    The most common areas to treat with fat dissolving injections are:

    The most common treatments to remove unwanted fat are:

    • Fat freezing (Coolsculpting) – best for larger areas, with a small amount of excess fat. Incremental improvements, and can cause the fat to grow (known as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia).
    • Fat dissolving injections – a convenient and quick treatment. Best for small, stubborn pockets of soft fat.
    • Liposuction – an effective fat reduction treatment. Best for large areas of fat, and can achieve the biggest difference in one session. Has higher upfront cost, more risk and longer downtime.

    Fat dissolving injections have many benefits that make them a popular choice for non-invasive fat reduction. These include:

    • Non-invasive, no downtime treatment.
    • 5-10 minute treatment with minimal discomfort.
    • Permanently eliminates fat cells.
    • Improve shape and contour of the treated area.
    • Prevents future fat accumulation, meaning less fat will go to the treated area if you gain weight.

    If you have small, stubborn pockets of fat, then you are likely suitable for dissolving injections.

    Small pockets of soft fat are ideal for fat dissolving treatment.

    During your consultation, our doctors will assess the volume and type of fat, and the quality of the overlying skin.

    The cost of fat dissolving injections will depend in the extent and complexity of your treatment.

    You can review up-to-date prices for fat dissolving injections at our pricing page.

    Diet and exercise are a good first-line treatment for reducing fat. However, it isn’t always successful or sustainable. If you can’t seem to shift fat, or find it constantly combing back, then consider fat dissolving injections.

    It’s called stubborn fat for a reason. Certain parts of our body are prone to fat deposits, regardless of your diet and exercise habits. While diet and exercise can help, it’s common for even the fittest athletes to have an area of concern. For this, there are fat dissolving injections.

    Fat dissolving injections can treat small, stubborn deposits of fat in almost any area of your body. The most common areas we treat are:

    Fat dissolving injections do not cause sagging or loose skin.

    In fact, the treatment can create a subtle tightening effect by producing collagen in response to the fat cell destruction process.

    Fat dissolving injections have almost no discomfort when done correctly.

    In inexperienced hands, it can be a very painful experience.

    Here at Cosmetic Connection, we use a range of strong numbing options to keep discomfort to an absolute minimum.

    Our patients consistently report only very mild discomfort during their fat dissolving treatment.

    Most people need 2-4 sessions of fat dissolving injections to achieve their ideal result.

    The number of treatments needed depends on:

    • The size and volume of the fat deposit.
    • The density of the fat.
    • You much of a difference you want.

    There is also slight variation in how well each person responds to the treatment.

    The product we use for fat dissolving treatment is not measured in vials.

    The amount of fat dissolver required is determined by the amount of fat, and how dense it is.

    Your appointment will begin with a comprehensive assessment of the area of concern. We will determine your suitability, and discuss the details of the treatment with you.

    The treatment takes just a few minutes. It begins with cleaning the skin, and numbing the area. We then precisely inject fat dissolver into the target fat. Depending on the area, we may use a tiny needle or a blunt cannula.

    After the treatment, the area will look fuller. This because we have injected 5-10ml of solution.

    Expect slight tenderness and swelling which gradually improves over 5-7 days. You can gently apply a wrapped cold pack to help with this.

    The treated area will continue to improve for 8 weeks, at which time you can consider another session.

    Fat dissolving injections can be done in under 5 minutes. This includes cleaning, marking and numbing the area.

    You will see the full effect from fat dissolving injections in 8 weeks. It takes time for your body to metabolise broken down fat cells.

    Fat dissolving injections permanently break down fat cells. Once metabolised, they don’t return.

    Any remaining fat cells can grow in size if you gain weight. However, you will put less fullness on in the treated areas.

    Most people experience a modest reduction in fullness after 2-3 fat dissolving treatments.

    We recommend you have at least 2 treatments spaced 8 weeks apart.

    You can have additional treatments if you want a more pronounced result.

    Fat dissolving injections are not a treatment for cellulite.

    No, it takes up to 8 weeks to see the final result after fat dissolving injections.

    We recommend having at least 2 treatments for optimal results.

    Prepare for your fat dissolving injections with the following guidelines:

    • Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup
    • Closely shave the planned treatment area where appropriate the day before your treatment

    Adhering to the fat dissolving injection aftercare is important to ensure safety. Follow these guidelines:

    • Gently apply a wrapped ice pack for any discomfort and to reduce swelling
    • Avoid strenuous exercise and excessive alcohol for 24 hours
    • The treated are may feel firm and numb while healing. After 1 week, massage the area to help this settle.

    While fat dissolving injections have no downtime, there will be swelling. This usually resolves in a few days.

    All patients who undergo fat dissolving injections will have swelling. This is caused by the metabolism of the treated fat cells.

    Swelling is usually moderate. This means people you know will notice. It goes down in a few days.

    You can conceal swelling with clothing, or by wearing a mask

    Swelling after fat dissolving injections usually subsides in 3-5 days. You can minimise swelling by gently applying a wrapped ice pack after your treatment.

    Fat dissolving injections are a safe treatment. Some side effects of the treatment are as follows:

    • Transient numbness
    • Temporary induration (hardened, thickened tissue under your skin)

    There are a few very rare side effects. These include temporary smile asymmetry and skin injury.

    The main side effects from fat dissolving injections are temporary swelling and redness. Rare side effects including damage to the skin ad infections. You can reduce risk by having treatment at an experienced, doctor-led cosmetic clinic.
