I am 28 and keen to have double chin treatment. I’ve heard that it can swell after injections. How much does it swell and how long does the swelling last?
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.
