Is there really an injection that can get rid of my double chin?
After much anticipation, Belkyra™ (Kybella® in the USA) has finally been approved in Canada for the treatment of submental fat (a.k.a double chin) and Dr. Mathew Plant is among the first plastic surgeons in Canada to offer this game-changing treatment.
Belkyra™ treatment uses a naturally-occurring substance found in our bodies that helps break down fat. When injected into the fat pad below the chin, it changes the way the fat cells function and causes the body to remove the fat cells over the next 28 days. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone forever!
Belkyra™ injections work on both Men and Women, and most patients will require only 2-4 treatments (up to 6 in more prominent double chins) spaced about 4 weeks apart. The procedure takes between 30-45 minutes and is done in the office. Belkyra offers a great option for patients who dislike the excess fat underneath their chins and it is a very effective nonsurgical alternative to neck liposuction.
