Can Belkyra Get Rid of My Double Chin Without Surgery?

Are you constantly distracted by your double chin in photos or while video chatting with someone? If so, do you find yourself trying to hide it or avoid being in pictures altogether? A double chin is a tough facial characteristic to disguise or hide. Diet and exercise, while great for your overall health, can do very little to target the submental fat that gathers underneath the chin and jawline. When researching ways to have your double chin removed, you’ve probably come across liposuction. However, the recovery time and potential scarring of a surgical procedure like liposuction may have stopped you from further pursuing treatment.

At Art of Lines MD in North Vancouver, Dr. Naz Baradaran offers double chin treatments with Belkyra. When administered by an expert, Belkyra can improve the contour of your chin and jawline without surgery. Continue reading to learn more about how Belkyra targets the fat beneath your chin to create a smooth, contoured profile.

How Does Belkyra Work To Reduce A Double Chin?

Belkyra injections are made of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When injected into the chin, Belkyra destroys and absorbs the excess fat cells, and your body will gradually metabolize them.

Is Belkyra An Effective Non-Surgical Treatment For Double Chin Reduction?

Yes! Belkyra is a reliable and effective treatment for removing submental fat beneath the chin. Research and studies have shown that most patients experience a significant reduction in fullness around their chin and jaw and a smoother neck profile. Dr. Naz uses ultrasound technology to determine the most precise placement of Belkyra to further enhance its effectiveness and ensure patient safety.

What Are the Benefits of Choosing Belkyra Over Surgical Options?

One of the main benefits of Belkyra is that it is non-surgical, meaning no anesthesia, incisions, sutures or recovery is involved. Treatment also causes minimal discomfort. Most patients experience a slight pinching and burning sensation when the injection is administered into the fat cells. Another benefit of Belkyra is that the results are long-lasting. In clinical studies, patients experienced a significant reduction in fat cells and a smoother jawline and neck profile that lasted up to two years after their initial treatment. With proper diet and exercise to manage your weight, Belkyra results can last even longer than that.

How Many Belkyra Sessions Are Typically Needed To See Results?

Everyone’s chin profile is unique. During your consultation, Dr. Naz will consider the amount of fat in the area, the size of the targeted area, and your desired results to determine the appropriate number of injections and sessions needed to achieve your goals. Patients can generally receive anywhere from one to six treatments spaced out two to three  months apart. For most patients, two to four sessions are enough to see significant improvements.

Can Belkyra Be Combined With Other Treatments For Enhanced Results?

At Art of Lines MD, Belkyra is often combined with a non-surgical facelift. A non-surgical facelift combines Botox, dermal fillers, and Belkyra to restore lost facial volume, smooth lines, and wrinkles and reduce the appearance of a double chin all in one comprehensive treatment.

Is Belkyra Suitable For All Skin Types and Ages?

Submental fat does not discriminate against anyone based on their skin type or tone, and neither does Belkyra. It is a safe treatment for oily, dry, or combination skin. However, patients must be 18 years of age or older and should be in good overall health and should talk to their doctor if they have any underlying skin or health conditions before pursuing Belkyra treatments.

How Long Do the Results of Belkyra Treatments Typically Last?

The best part about Belkyra is that the results are permanent. Belkyra effectively damages existing fat cells, killing them so the body can flush them out. An important thing to keep in mind is that Belkyra cannot remove every fat cell underneath the chin. Some will be left over after your treatments. These remaining fat cells can still grow and shrink when your weight fluctuates. You’ll experience long-lasting results as long as you maintain a healthy weight.

What Can I Expect During and After A Belkyra Treatment Session?


At Art of Lines MD, we will customize a treatment plan to suit your unique needs. Your injector will examine the treatment area during your consultation and discuss your ideal outcome. Based on your preferences and their expert opinion, they will curate a treatment plan that works best for you. To avoid excessive bruising, we do recommend that patients avoid taking blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Advil, Motrin, and vitamin E. Patients are also advised to refrain from drinking alcohol for at least two days before their Belkyra appointment as this can dehydrate the skin and cause excessive bruising to occur.

Give your skin a break from makeup on the day of your appointment and come with fresh, clean, and moisturized skin.


Although Belkyra is minimally invasive and requires no recovery time, you should carefully follow Dr. Naz’s aftercare instructions to achieve the best possible results. Patients can resume their normal daily activities immediately after their treatment. Redness in the treatment area are normal and should fade after a few hours. For some patients swelling and bruising might last a few days, for up to a week but subsides after.

Here are a few things to avoid after your Belkyra treatment:

  • Wearing makeup for the first 24 hours
  • Sun exposure
  • Exfoliants or products that contain retinol or vitamin C
  • Saunas, hot showers or baths, or activities that cause excessive sweating
  • Sleeping in a position that puts pressure on the treatment area (keep your head elevated)
  • Massaging, rubbing, or touching the treated area
  • Foods that are hard to chew
