Belkyra Treatment for Double Chin

New Zealand men and women concerned about a double chin now have a nonsurgical option for treatment.

Belkyra is a nonsurgical injection treatment to reduce the fat in a double chin (submental fat). This results in a more contoured neck profile and jawline. In the USA it is known as Kybella. In the rest of the world it is Belkyra.

The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, derived from a plant. Deoxycholic acid is an important part of our bile which helps dissolve and digest the fat we eat. When deoxycholic acid is injected into the double chin fat it acts as a detergent and breaks down fat cells. Fewer fat cells means less fat in the double chin.

Patients who have a moderate or severe amount of fat in their double chin. There can be other causes of neck fullness and a consultation and examination is necessary to ensure that Belkyra is the right treatment.

Anyone who is allergic to deoxycholic acid, is pregnant or breastfeeding should not have Belkyra.

A series of injections is needed, at least two and maybe three or four.
After an assessment and discussion about your neck the treatment area is marked out. A series of local anaesthetic injections is given for comport followed by the Belkyra injections. The area is usually swollen for a few days to up to six weeks.

That depends on how much and how many treatments are required. A minimum of two treatments of two vials of Belkyra will be needed at $650 a vial i.e. a minimum of $2600. Some people need more.
