Belkyra Injectable and
What are Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable double chin procedures?
Like Restylane, Juvederm and Botox Injectable, the aesthetic procedure called Kybella Injectable in the United States and Belkyra Injectable in Canada is an FDA and Health Canada approved safe injectable substance that is used to reduce and potentially eliminate fat under the chin. This fat under the chin or submental adipose tissue is the target of the Belkyra and Kybella injectable and the goal is a non-surgical and non-invasive removal of the double chin. Toronto double chin patients seek out Toronto plastic surgeon Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica for his decade long experience treating double chins with injectable substances like Belkyra Injectable.
What is submental adipose or double chin?
A double chin is an unwanted collection of fat under the chin. It forms a convex distension that takes the appearance of a double, triple or even quadruple chin. Unfortunately, double chins can be unrelated to weight and lifestyle and Toronto double chin patients often describe their double chin as hereditary and are very difficult to lose. Systemic weight loss can target generalized fat collections, but often the double chin or triple chin will persist. A double chin makes one look older, more dowdy and less fit. Observers make assumptions that the individual is less healthy.
Figure 1. Belkyra Injectable (Canada) and Kybella Injectable (United States) are simple injectable procedures for the reduction of double chins.
Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable have been approved by the FDA and by Health Canada as an injectable liquid inserted gently into the fat of the under chin, similar to Restylane or Juvederm soft tissue fillers. The action of the Kybella Injectable and Belyra Injectable is to gently chemically break down the unwanted localized fat. Over time and a few injections Toronto double chin patients can have this unwanted fat shrunken down or even eliminated.

What exactly is Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable and what are the ingredients?
Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable is a non-animal, non-human, synthetic chemical substance that can be found in smaller quantities in the human body. It is a lecithin type of chemical that can disrupt the cell membrane of fat cells, releasing their contents and break them down safely and effectively.
Figure 3. Belkyra Injectable (Canada) and Kybella Injectable (United States) are simple injectable procedures for the reduction of double chins. The chemical composition of Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable is the chemical deoxycholate, which has been used as compounded injectable fat reduction substance for over 15 years.
What happens to the double chin fat once Belkyra Injectable or Kybella Injectable works?
The Belkrya Injectable and Kybella Injectable disrupt the cell membrane of the fat cells that cause the double chin. When the cell membrane of the fat cell is disrupted, the contents of the fat cell, the glycerol and free fatty acids are leaked into the surrounding subcutaneous space. The contents that are leaked in the interstitial space are harmless and the body has a tremendous capacity to naturally remove free fatty acids and glycerol quite safely and effectively. The contents of the fat cell that are released are taken back to the liver for natural processing or through the kidney for elimination. There is no increased risk for atherosclerotic disease or heart disease from the small amounts of adipose cells and fat cells that are broken down using Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable.
Figure 4. The Belkyra injectable places the deoxycholate active ingredient adjacent the fat cells making up the double chin. The cell membrane of the fat cells are broken down and the contents of the fat cell are gently released and safely metabolized by the bodies processing system. Over a series of treatments the double and triple chins can be significantly reduced.
What is involved in the Belkyra Injectable and Kybell Injectable procedure?
The Belkyra Injectable procedure involves a thorough consultation with a SpaMedica injection specialist. During the consultation Toronto Double Chin patients will find out if they are candidates for Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable. Toronto double chin patients seek out the expertise of Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica for their extensive experience in fat reduction techniques, such as Kybella and Belkyra injectable, SmartLipo, double chin liposuction and other non-invasive techniques such as BodyFx, UltraShape, CoolSculpting and SculpSure. The advantage for Toronto Belkrya Injectable and Kybella Injectable patients is that this injectable procedure is completely non-invasive, there’s no incision required and there’s no energy devices required for the simple injection and chemical to work. The skin can be anesthetized for several minutes prior to the insertion of the very small needle. A small injection grid is applied to the double chin, which facilitates very accurate administration small doses of the Kybella injectable and Belkyra Injectable evenly to the necessary areas of the double chin fat. The whole procedure takes a matter of minutes and most patients can leave the office within half an hour.

Is there any downtime after Belkrya Injectable of Kybella Injectable?
Most Toronto Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable patients can return immediately to normal activities. There is a small, very slight bruising sensation. Some patients experience a small amount of burning and discomfort, but no more so than undergoing any other injectable treatment such as Restylane, Juvederm or Botox Injectable.
Can Toronto Belkyra patients return to normal activities after Kybella Inejctable and Belkyra Injectable?
Toronto double chin patients who undergo Kybella and Belkyra can return to normal activities immediately. Activities such as sedentary work, low impact exercise activities can all be reinstituted immediately after the treatment.
Is the Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable for my double chin painful?
Toronto double chin patients who undergo the treatment find that Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable procedures are quite comfortable. With the use of topical anesthetic cream the very small injection needle and quantities of the Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable fat dissolvent is relatively comfortable. The post-operative course is quite comfortable and patients can return to activities almost immediately.
Is there any special post treatment care after Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable?
There are no specific post-operative activities, care or special skin care needs required for Toronto Belkyra Injectable patients. A small amount of swelling from the injection may persist for 24-28 hours, but generally resolves over several days. Quite often the swelling is not noticeable to others; it is camouflaged within your double chin. There may be small amounts of bruising, although this is uncommon in the small injection sites and this can be camouflaged with powder or makeup.
How long does it take for the Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable to work?
Every patient is different. There are different amounts of subcutaneous fat in a double chin and the more fat present the more Belkyra Injectable will be required. In general between two and often several injections may be required to get adequate double chin reduction. The small injections are separated by a month apart and modest amounts of submental fat can be removed in several Belkyra injections. Large amounts of subcutaneous fat, double, triple or quadruple chins may take more Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable procedures.. After each injection, predictable amounts of fat cells exposed to the chemical are dissolved and taken way gently and effectively and metabolized normally by the body, thus reduction the size of a double chin.
Does Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable work on loose skin?
Toronto double chin patients who also have a significant degree of lax skin will often undergo Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable procedures in combination with skin tightening procedures such as the Venus Freeze, Exilis, the VelaShape III, the Forma, Forma Plus or even the mini BodyFx. SpaMedica and Dr. Mulholland are well-known for energy devices that can tighten skin non-invasively and these devices may be used in conjunction with Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable to tighten the skin while the fat is being reduced.
Figure 7. Patients with loose skin of the neck and no significant fat may require additional skin tightening procedures and may not be Belkyra injectable, or Kybella injectable candidates alone.
Can Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable be used on other subcutaneous collections of fat outside of a double chin?
The Health Canada approval for Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable is for subcutaneous fat and adipose of the double chin. Reduction of the double chin is the FDA and Health Canada indication. Some physicians have been using Kybella Injectable and Belkyra Injectable off label for other subcutaneous collections of fat that are smaller, modest in size and this use would need to be disclosed by your physician and special consent obtained.
The best indication for Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable procedures is for the treatment of a double chin and that is where most of the research and safety profiles have been worked out and established.
What kind of results can I expect to achieve following Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable?
Toronto double chin patients can expect to get a visible and noticeable reduction in their double chin. With enough injections many patients achieve almost complete improvement of the double chin and attain a more acute cervicomental neck angle as opposed to the oblique or convex dissention caused by the unwanted subcutaneous fat. Belkyra Injectable is not a perfect cure, but certainly Toronto Double chin patients find this the least invasive way to reduce their double chin.

What is the difference between liposuction of a double chin and Belkyra injectable and Kybella Injectable?
Liposuction involves a minimally invasive surgical procedure and local anesthesia. There is a special device such as a laser, in the case of SmartLipo, or radio frequency probe in the case of NeckTite inserted into the fat of the double chin and where the fat is melted. The melted fat is actually aspirated out and removed. The advantage of these modern liposuction techniques for a double chin, triple chin or even quadruple chin is the immediate removal of fat in a single stage, however, it does come with between 3 and 7 days of recovery and a modest degree of bruising and discomfort. For those patients seeking a one-time treatment for the removal and improvement of their double chin with the modern special forms of liposuction such as SmartLipo, BodyTite, NeckTite or VaserLipo, you should discuss this with Dr. Mulholland. Dr. Mulholland is a world authority and expert on the high tech laser and RF liposuction removal of fat from the double chin. Those Toronto double chin, triple and quadruple chin patients that want a noticeable improvement of a double chin, but performed subtly without any incision, sutures or recovery over time are good candidates for Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable procedures.
Who is not a good candidate for Kybella or Belkyra?
Toronto Double chin patients who are sick with medical conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, heart or liver disease, or patients who are pregnant are not good candidates for Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable procedures. Individuals with excessively lax skin and no subcutaneous fat, or the dreaded “turkey neck” are also not candidates for Belkyra injectable or Kybella Injectable procedures. Other skin tightening techniques would be offered at SpaMedica, either non-invasively or invasively with small mini neck lift procedures.
Can Kybella or Belkyra be combined with other procedures of the neck?
Toronto double chin patients may sometimes have Dr. Mulholland combine skin tightening procedures together with their Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable procedures in order to achieve the best result. Other techniques such as photofacial, photorejuvention with IPL, treatments for colour correction, fractional treatments for wrinkle reduction on the neck and other external heating devices can be deployed. Botox Injectable can also be deployed with Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable to soften neck cords, lines and horizontal necklace lines.
Are there any complications or risks with Belkyra Injectable or Kybella injectable procedures?
The risks for Belkyra Injectable patients are generally those associated with any injectable treatments such as Juvederm, Restylane or Botox Injectable such as bruising, swelling, slight asymmetries that can be corrected over time with other procedures. In some early studies with the use of deoxycholate, which is the name of the principle chemical ingredient in Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable, if the product is injected too close to the skin, skin necrosis, an ulcer and a scar could ensue but this is extremely rare, especially in the experienced hands of Dr. Mulholland and his SpaMedica team of injectors.
Approximately how much can I expect to pay for my Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable treatments?
Belkyra Injectable and Kybella Injectable treatments are charged per treatment. Individuals who have small amounts of subcutaneous fat in their double chin can expect to pay less as they require fewer numbers of treatments. Each treatment is spaced one month apart and similar to Botox or Juvederm or Restylane patients are generally charged by the syringe. The Belkyra Injectable syringe prices in Canada can range from $500.00 per syringe and treatment. Prices vary and the number of treatments will depend on the extent of the subcutaneous fat or size of the double chin.
What if I’m dissatisfied with the fat reduction under my chin after Kybella Injectable or Belkyra Injectable procedure?
As Dr. Mulholland is one of Canada’s foremost plastic surgeons and a leader and innovator in the techniques of SmartLipo and NeckTite, Dr. Mulholland offers all his Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable patients the opportunity to convert to SmartLipo or NeckTite liposuction for Belkyra Injectable and Kybella injectable patients that are not satisfied with the non surgical chemical double chin reduction procedure. By allowing all Belkrya patients the opportunity to apply their injectable fees against their liposuction fees, it allows a virtual guarantee for a significantly improved double chin for all Belkyra Injectable patients.
