The main factors that affect how much someone swells after double chin treatment include:
- How much fullness there is under the chin to begin with. The more fat that is being treated the more swelling is seen
- The number of vials that are used – 2 vials will swell more than 1 vial as more fat is being dissolved
- Individual response – as with any swelling in the body it varies from person to person and this is difficult to predict
The photo above shows a patient who has had 2 vials of double chin injections at Cityskin in one treatment. The after photos were taken 20 minutes after injections. You can see the swelling under the chin after treatment. I think this is a fair representation of how much swelling occurs after treatment. The swelling is likely to persist for 3-5 days before settling down. The swelling can vary from person to person with some patients experiencing swelling for slightly longer.
