COSMETIC BELKYRA/KYBELLA INJECTION TREATMENT TORONTO
We’ll help you enhance your look and live more confidently with our cosmetic Belkyra / Kybella injection.
Dr. Asif Pirani and the Toronto Plastic Surgery Center are proud to offer Belkyra /Kybella as a non-surgical treatment for improving the submental appearance due to fat accumulation. Belkyra™ (known as Kybella™ in the U.S.) has been authorized by Health Canada to treat moderate to severe submental fullness. As one of Toronto’s top plastic surgeons, Dr. Pirani is one of the first physicians offering Belkyra™ & Kybella™ in Yorkville.
Fat accumulation in this area is usually quite difficult to lose even with significant weight loss. Until recently, liposuction was the mainstay treatment for improving the submental contour or profile. Belkyra/Kybella is the first injectable product approved by Health Canada to treat the stubborn “Double Chin” in both men and women.
What is Belkyra/Kybella?
Belkyra/Kybella is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Belkyra™ destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat again.
How is Belkyra/Kybella Administered?
Belkyra/Kybella is administered by injecting the unwanted fat under your chin with the product. Several treatment sessions are usually needed in order to achieve ideal results, but many patients begin to see visible results within two to four treatments. The injections are performed in the office and take 15-30 minutes to administer.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients begin to see results within 4 to 6 weeks. Multiple treatment sessions are usually needed to achieve optimal results. Results are permanent.
What Should I Expect After my Belkyra/Kybella Treatment Sessions?
You may expect a small amount of bruising and swelling but this is usually quite minimal. Strenuous activity should be avoided for 24 hours to minimize bruising, but most other normal activities can be continued.
Most people experience no downtime after Belkyra™ treatments.
What Happens During my Consultation?
Dr. Pirani will thoroughly discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals and then review your treatment options. He will provide you with an estimate of the number of treatment sessions needed and the estimated cost for treatment.

Benefits of Kybella & Belkyra
Even with consistent and effective healthy diet and exercise, there are some areas of the body that just seem like they never lose that stubborn fat, the chin being one of them. With the help of Kybella/Belkyra though, you can zap the fat in your double chin once and for all, leaving you with a smooth and shapely neckline.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the procedure, Kybella/Belkyra is a nonsurgical way to improve the appearance of the neck. It is a formulation of deoxycholic acid that is injected and helps the fat cells to breakdown and ultimately destroy them, leaving your neck looking as fit as the rest of your body.
In the past, liposuction was the most common way to remove fat from this area, but Kybella/Belkyra is quickly becoming a popular alternative.
Lose your double chin over your lunch break? Pretty close, as a session typically takes 15 to 30 minutes. During this time, you’ll meet with your Toronto plastic surgeon who will administer the injection, quickly and easily. The less time you spend in the office, the more time you get to spend enjoying your healthy lifestyle.
During your initial consultation, you’ll find out how many treatments you’ll need to achieve the desired results. Depending on how many sessions you undergo, you’ll mostly likely see results within four to six weeks, usually having undergone two to four treatments. Fast results make it appealing to many patients, because they can see the treatments happening right before their eyes.
The molecules in Kybella/Belkyra help your body to destroy the fat cells. Once a fat cell is destroyed it is gone for good, meaning the fat cells in your chin won’t be coming back. Permanent results make this an appealing procedure for many people to undergo, because they don’t have to worry about regular follow ups and maintenance to keep their chin looking its best.
Aside from fast acting results and quick sessions, most people find that the injections have few side effects and don’t have much impact on their regular schedule. Some patients experience minor bruising and swelling after an injection, but it usually is very minimal. You can return to strenuous activity after 24 hours, with no disruption to your normal activities.
Because it is simply an injection that is administered during an outpatient procedure, it is a procedure that is not considered invasive. You’ll be in and out before you even know it.
Aside from the procedure being simple and fast-acting, a slender and sleek chin will do wonders for your confidence. The neck can add years to your age, so keeping it thin will find that you look and feel younger.
We’d love to talk to you about your goals, so give us a call and we can see how Kybella/Belkyra can give you a chin that will have you looking your best!
