Which would you recommend: Coolsculpting or fat dissolving injections? I decided on Coolsculpting over fat dissolving injections for my procedure, what are your thoughts? One never can have too many opinions! Sometimes I believe I almost have a jawline then I turn sideways and never mind!

Both Coolsculpting and fat dissolving injections are amazing treatments for permanently removing submental fat and both have their place in my practice. There are many reasons to use one instead of the other. Firstly, do you have enough submental fullness to fit the CoolMini vacuum applicator? If you do not have enough, the applicator may not stay in position during the treatment, and your results may be less than optimal, so be mindful, you may fall into this category. The benefit of CoolMini is that there is less “downtime” than you will experience following fat dissolving injections The swelling following fat dissolving injections can be quite severe for the first 24-72 hours, although this is actually a good sign that the treatment is having its desired effect. I would recommend a review with an experienced injector and surgeon who can assess you in person, discuss your goals, and formulate a treatment plan. I would also suggest a review at a clinic where both Coolsculpting and fat dissolving injections are available, so you get an unbiased opinion.
