If “turkey neck” is an expression you are more than familiar with, then perhaps you’ve tried countless ways to get rid of it.
So when searching for THE double chin treatment (with fast results, minimum pain and no hospitalisation), it’s good to know there are more available options than the traditional “super exercises” or diets.
But first, let’s learn a bit more about ‘turkey neck’ before getting into treatment options.
What causes turkey neck & why?
Even though a double chin is more common in people who are overweight, those who practice sports and have athletic bodies can also get it. Why? It all depends on your bone structure, the areas where your body creates fat deposits, or the amount of loose skin under your chin.
And as you advance with age, a double chin can also appear as a sign of getting older. You see, the number one thing that happens with our skin as we get older is it loses its elasticity. Skin laxity leads to lack of firmness and causes sagging. So besides the folds and creases on your face, you can also develop second chin, even without excess weight.
A very unflattering fat pad, especially when you think about its alternate names like chin twin, turkey neck, second chin, and so on.
What are the available turkey neck treatments?
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia, the double chin treatment falls in the Skin Tightening or Body contouring categories, which include FOUR options for double chin removal:
- Injectable Double Chin Treatment
- Ultraformer Skin Tightening
- Fat Reduction With Ultrasound
1. Injectable Double Chin Treatment
Our non-surgical injectable treatment is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of submental fullness (aka double chin).
The active ingredient breaks down fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat meaning that no further treatment is necessary once you achieve your desired look.
In the hands of our experienced injectors we can sculpt the neck and create a more defined jawline and youthful profile – the treatment does not affect facial expressions so whilst results can be very impressive and striking, they are also very natural looking.
2. Skin Tightening with Ultrasound
Another favourite treatment at Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia. Skin Tightening with Ultrasound is a non-invasive treatment that is recommended to those who have loose skin on their submental region and neck. The procedure stimulates collagen production and at the same time contracts existing collagen fibers.
It is also an excellent treatment to tighten loose skin after a fat reduction treatment.

Liposculpture is a procedure that permanently removes fat and fat cells using 1mm micro-cannulas. Unlike liposuction, liposculpture is minimally invasive but with the ability to remove fat very quickly. In just a short 15 minutes, you could be rid of your ‘turkey neck’! We are very fortunate to have Melbourne’s liposuction pioneer Dr Michael Rich, an eminent surgical liposculpture expert and cosmetic dermatologist visit our clinic to attend to Sydney Patients.
4. Fat Reduction With Ultrasound
Ultrasound is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment used to eradicate small accumulations of fat and tighten the skin. The energy uses targeted heat to safely destroy fat cells which your body then removes naturally through its immune system. This controlled heat also stimulates collagen fibres in the deeper layers of your skin to restore some youthful elasticity and tightness.

As the name suggests, the treatment’s results consist mostly of tightening of the skin. So it is not really a double chin removal procedure; but if your double chin is more skin than fat pads, this would be the best double chin removal procedure for you.

Whatever double chin treatment you decide to follow, make sure it is non-invasive and doesn’t leave scars. All the available procedures that we offer at the Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia bring our patients the best possible results, are non-invasive, do not require hospitalisation.
