Even with diet and exercise, there are areas of the body where fat seems particularly stubborn and hard to get rid of. This includes underneath the chin, which is known as submental fullness or having a double chin. Now with Belkyra, you can target this problem area in just 20 minutes with minimal downtime.
Belkyra double chin treatment is a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure that can contour the neck area and diminish excess fat from beneath the chin. It can be used as a non-invasive version of liposuction. Belkyra is suitable for men and women who have submental fullness due to aging, weight gain or genetics. Dr Saras & Co now offer Belkyra in their Annandale and Double Bay Clinics located in Sydney.
Using a series of injections, a specific molecule is used to break down the fat underneath the chin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body will gradually eliminate them over time, reducing the amount of fat and diminishing submental fullness.
In the weeks following treatment, your body will naturally process and absorb these fat cells, leaving you with an improved profile and defined jawline.
Ideal candidates for Belkyra double chin treatment are adults that are in good health and who cannot get rid of submental fullness. This treatment is not a tool for weight loss; rather, it is a neck and chin contouring procedure. In addition, it may not achieve the best results if you have a lot of loose skin beneath the chin or around the neck.
Before receiving double chin treatment, it is important to meet with our specialists to find out if this procedure is right for you. In addition, you can discuss what your goals are from the treatment. During your consultation, we will go over the treatment process with you and assess submental fullness. We can also arrange for a customised treatment plan to be created that works for you, deciding on the number of sessions that will be needed. This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have and discuss any concerns about the treatment before you make a decision.
Belkyra double chin treatment follows a fast and simple procedure. Patients will be given a topical anaesthetic and this will be applied to the chin area. This will ensure minimal pain and discomfort during the procedure. A transparent grid will be placed onto the chin, which acts as a guide for our specialists. This improves the accuracy of injections so that certain areas of the neck can be avoided, such as nerves and blood vessels. A series of injections will be inserted underneath the chin. The exact number of injections the patient receives will vary and depend on the amount of submental fullness and individual goals. It is common for patients to receive between 20 and 40 injections. Belkyra double chin treatment only lasts for around 15 to 30 minutes.
Belkyra is an innovative and non-invasive treatment for submental fullness, with minimal downtime associated with the procedure. It is common for some swelling and bruising to appear around the chin, as well as redness from injection sites. But, this will subside within a few days of the treatment. There are no permanent marks or scars associated with this treatment. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days or arrange treatment over the weekend to avoid taking time off.
Results are gradual, as the body eliminates submental fullness and fat over time. Patients can expect to see an improvement in the treated area in about six to eight weeks after one treatment. Depending on a patient’s goals and submental fullness, more treatment sessions may be needed. The results of this procedure are permanent, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. But, any excess weight gain can have an effect on the results.
