• BELKYRA™ is an injectable drug that can reduce submental (under the chin) fat and redefine your jawline, effectively eliminating your double chin without surgery.​

  • BELKYRA™ consists of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies. When injected into a targeted area, it destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the fat inside to be released and naturally eliminated from the body. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store fat and therefore results are permanent. ​

  • Many patients experienced visible results in two to four treatments. However up to six treatments may be administered. Once your goal is reached, re-treatment is not expected.​

When to consider Belkyra treatment?

  • You have extra fat under your chin that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise
