What is Belkyra?
- Posted on: Oct 15 2020
Do you find yourself paying close attention to how your head aligns with your neck? Do you cringe at the idea of getting your photo taken because of excess fat underneath your chin? Are you tired of looking heavier than you really are due to this excess fat? If you are aware of your “double chin” and want to find a solution for reducing it, you may believe that plastic surgery solutions such as liposuction are your only option. However, Dr. Dimitrios Motakis and his team in Toronto, Ontario offer another solution for patients to consider: Belkyra.
What is Belkyra?
Dr. Dimitrios Motakis describes Belkyra as an injectable treatment used to reduce the amount of fat underneath the chin, medically referred to as “submental fullness.” This injectable helps patients avoid costly surgeries and reduces the risk of infection and eliminates the chance of scarring. Using an ingredient called deoxycholic acid, Belkyra targets fat cells where it is injected. Over the course of several weeks, the body naturally flushes these fat cells out of the body for improved appearance—without patients requiring surgical interventions!
Is Belkyra safe?
Belkyra has been cleared by the FDA for the use of treating submental fullness, and continues to be a popular option for patients looking to avoid plastic surgery. The best candidates for Belkyra are patients who have mild to moderate submental fullness and want a nonsurgical solution that gradually treats fat cells over time. This ensures natural results, and these results will last several years when patients maintain their body weight with time. The fat cells are permanently removed from the body, though the existing fat cells can become larger with weight gain and cause the double chin to reappear.
