Once upon a time, patients used to have to undergo a surgical procedure to address a double chin, but not anymore. Today there is BELKYRA™, a minimally invasive injectable treatment designed to eliminate submental fullness (double chin) with little to no downtime. If you’re bothered by a softening jawline, our experienced Physicians may be able to help you banish the turtlenecks to the back of the closet.
BELKYRA™ is a cosmetic injectable that’s comprised of a substance called deoxycholic acid. This material naturally exists within the body, and its purpose is to break down fat cells. When administered to the area of concern (under the chin and on the neck), BELKYRA™ can smooth away the submental fat and create a more contoured jaw and neckline in the process. The procedure typically takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and recovery should be minimal—if there’s any at all. Some bruising and tenderness at the injection sites is normal, but patients often return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.
Men and women alike can benefit from this revolutionary therapy. Not sure if it’s right for you? We offer complimentary consultations to help you decide.
