At FACE Toronto, we’re proud to offer our patients Belkyra – the first and only Health Canada approved injectable that can permanently eliminate unwanted fat underneath the chin, restoring a slim and contoured facial appearance. A double chin emerges when excess fat accumulates in the area, usually due to genetics and the natural aging process.
Because this unwanted volume is not related to your diet, weight and lifestyle, it can’t be addressed by making healthier choices. In fact, it has a tendency to stick around even after you’ve lost weight from other areas of your body, making it particularly difficult to treat.
The best way to determine whether a surgeon is capable of giving you the results you desire is to view his past work and results.
Until very recently, the only way to get rid of your double chin and achieve an enhanced and defined jawline was with an invasive surgical procedure. But not anymore. Today, Belkyra offers discerning Toronto patients a completely non-surgical way to dissolve stubborn fat underneath the chin – giving you the sculpted look you want without going under the knife.
Belkyra is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies that works to absorb fat. When injected into the area underneath your chin, it permanently destroys unwanted fat cells – tightening the skin and contouring the jaw to deliver a slim and rejuvenated new look.
The benefits of eliminating your double chin with the innovative Belkyra include:
The key to achieving optimal results with Belkyra is to have your injections performed by one of the best plastic surgeons in Toronto with a deep understanding of facial beauty and balance, like Ada Shim and Ashlin Alexander. They have the ability to look at your face and understand exactly which adjustments will create the impact you want. As such, they will use Belkyra to remove the precise amount of fat necessary to sculpt your ideal face and jaw.
Your Belkyra injections will be performed at FACE Toronto's picturesque office in downtown Toronto. Because the procedure is completely non-invasive, there are no incisions or devices associated with this treatment. We will simply place the Belkyra injectable grid over your double chin, before using an ultra fine needle to inject small amounts of the medicine directly into your unwanted fat. The entire procedure is very comfortable and will last just twenty minutes.
Most of our patients need multiple injections to completely eliminate their double chin, though the precise number of sessions will depend on how much excess fat is present. After each treatment, the results of your injections should appear within four to six weeks, with a visible reduction in unwanted fat and a dramatic improvement in your overall facial appearance.

After your Belkyra injections, it’s normal to experience some minor swelling underneath your chin, though it should resolve within a few days. There may also be some bruising, but you’ll be able to easily camouflage it with makeup until it subsides. Other than that, you’ll be free to return to your normal daily routine immediately after treatment, without any activity restrictions or special skincare requirements.
