"Two chins are better than one”… said no one ever!
At Pacific Plastic Surgery, we use BELKYRA™ to target localized fat under the chin, resulting in a non-surgical chin lift. Called KYBELLA® in the U.S., BELKYRA™ is a Health Canada approved, non-surgical treatment designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin.
- Non-surgical fat reduction treatment
- Targets specific fat pockets
- Less invasive than surgery
- Natural and safe
- Mild to moderate downtime
BELKYRA™ (KYBELLA®) is a patented formulation of deoxycholic acid manufactured by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX®. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies used to digest fat in our diets. BELKYRA™ destroys the fat cell membrane allowing the chin fat to be excreted out of the body, helping to eliminate the double chin without double chin surgery.!
Typically each treatment session lasts 40 minutes Results vary from person to person and multiple sessions are usually recommended to gradually reduce the unwanted chin fat. As the body expels the chin fat, slimming of the area occurs over the next 8 weeks. The amount of treatments necessary is dependent on the amount of volume to be treated and your body’s response to the Belkyra™.
1 – 3 treatments spaced 8 weeks apart

Comfort is of the upmost importance at Pacific Plastic Surgery. We pre-ice the area, and use the smallest needles on the market to ensure you feel as little as possible. If you are anxious we also offer nitrous oxide (the famous laughing gas) to help you giggle through your appointment.
