Belkyra Or Kybella Double Chin Fat Reduction Treatment in Toronto

As of Feb 1 2016, Belkyra (also known as Kybella injectable in the US), has just recently joined the list of treatments available in Canada. This procedure specifically targets the stubborn fat (called submental fat) that rests under the chin causing a double chin. Dr Peter Bray was among the first Canadian physicians to be trained to perform this procedure at the product launch on January 30, 2016 in Toronto.

What Is Belkyra?

Belkyra (deoxycholic acid) injection is the only FDA authorized injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat.

The Belkyra / Kybella Procedure

The Belkyra procedure is very simple and fast. Dr Peter Bray is a board certified plastic surgeon and is therefore able to perform the Belkyra treatment with great accuracy. He will assess and identify the area to be specifically targeted, then a thin sheet with coloured dots are placed on the skin. The sheet is then moistened with water and these small dots are transferred to the skin temporarily for the procedure. He will then inject Belkyra in a very systematic and precise fashion into the fat pocket. The treatment is then complete and you can go back to your normal activities immediately.

The injections work by dissolving the protein membranes around fat cells, allowing them to collapse and be processed naturally by the body. All you will feel is the injections themselves, which are applied with a very small needle to the area. Overall, the treatment takes only a few minutes. Follow-up treatments are booked right away so we can monitor progress and assess the need for another session. Usually 2 to 3 treatments are required depending on the amount of fat in the area.

Some patients will experience some swelling, bruising and soreness after the procedure, which varies in amount from person to person. Also, small areas of bruising can be common due to the injection process. You can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. Generally we see results within a few weeks for some patients and longer than a month for others. Visit us for a complimentary consultation to determine if Belkyra is right for you!

Bulges of fat such as fat on the neck or what some would call a double chin is often hard to get rid of with diet and exercise. Some would describe this area as hard to treat fat since there is often little improvement in chin fat with vigorous diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen). Over time, your body naturally processes the fat leaving a more sculpted look. This process is call Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis means reduction of fat cells with the use of freezing, hence the term freeze fat away by freezing fat cells to the point of reduction without damaging any surrounding tissues such as nerves, skin and muscle.
