Non-Surgical Double Chin Removal

Anyone concerned about the appearance of a double chin can now seek remedy through a non-surgical procedure that has full approval, including from the FDA.

The treatment, called Belkyra, is truly revolutionary.

There are many non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures that can address concerns relating to appearance, but these have not been suitable for treating a double chin.

Dermal fillers, for instance, can address lines and wrinkles and even strengthen the jaw, but they cannot remove fat; similarly, Botox is of no use when a double chin is the concern.

This has often left prospective patients with a choice between doing nothing, leaving the chin as it is, or opting for full cosmetic surgery.

Belkyra fills this gap, it is a non-surgical remedy for the double chin, removing the fat and leaving new definition.

Belkyra Injections UK

The appearance of a double chin – or submental fat or fullness – is common as we age, indeed data from the United States suggests that up to 68% of adults are affected by this condition to some degree.

However, this fat below the chin and jawline is very hard for any individual to address through simple changes to their diet or exercise regime.

While good diet and exercise are always to be recommended, neither is suited to targeting fat in one specific area. We all have a natural propensity to store fat in certain regions and so this fat is very often the last for the body to eliminate.

As you may have found, no amount of cutting calories or going for jogs will do much to address signs of a double chin in the short or medium term.

Belkyra, the first and only non-surgical treatment to have FDA approval for use under the chin and jawline, is therefore likely to be suitable for anyone who is in good overall Belkyra but wants to address this aesthetic concern.

The cause for the double chin is ultimately irrelevant, whether it is ageing, genetics or through some weight gain as in all cases the treatment required is the same – to remove the excess fat from this region.

It is worth noting that Belkyra is not a treatment for overall weight loss, instead it is to tackle a specific build-up of fat for aesthetic purposes.

The Non-Surgical Double Chin Removal Process

Belkyra works by causing the rapid destruction of fat cells in the targetted area, this achieved by breaking down the cell membrane.

The fat is then naturally dispelled over the coming weeks and months.

Belkyra works by building on processes that already occur in the body. The injection contains a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and aids the destruction of dietary fat.

The formulation only targets fat cells, no other cells or tissue are affected by the injection.

Injections are made through an ultra-fine needle, these causing mild discomfort at most and this quickly passes and ice can be used to minimise discomfort.

Each treatment will typically last between 15 and 20 minutes and it is usual to have a number of treatments, often between two and four, and these spread out roughly a month apart.

Opting for multiple smaller treatments enables results to be more closely monitored, ensuring enough fat is ultimately removed but not too much.

Permanent Results Achieved

A huge benefit of this form of non-invasive fat loss procedure is that results achieved are permanent. The fat cells are killed off and so it is impossible for them to store fat in future.

Results are therefore considered permanent. Post the initial series of injections, there will be no requirement for future follow-up procedures.

Belkyra Cost

As a non-surgical treatment, Belkyra is an affordable option.

Prices will vary based on the number of treatments required and also the amount of injectable required in a treatment. However, Paul Banwell is fully open with his prices and an obligation-free quote would always be provided during consultation, for the patient to consider at their leisure.

Recovery From Double Chin Fat Loss Injections

In contrast to a surgical procedure, there is no recovery period to speak of – at most there is likely to be some mild symptoms as outlined below that can be managed through standard painkillers.

Post-treatment, it is possible to go about the rest of your day as usual, though it is common to take it a bit easy for a short while.

Mild side effects can include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Redness
  • Hardness around the treatment area.

Less common side effects include

  • Trouble swallowing
  • Nerve injury to the marginal mandibular nerve that can cause an uneven smile.

It is worth noting that these rare side effects resolve inside a month in most instances.

The safety of Belkyra is demonstrated by the fact it has been the focus of a global clinical development program, this involving more than 20 clinical trials and 2,600 patients globally.

Mr Banwell was highly recommended by a friend of a friend. She was very satisfied with results which I witnessed. I trusted what I heard and what I saw. My meetings with Mr Banwell only reassured me further. Mr Banwell offered additional discussion time pre op & several follow ups post op. His admin team were 100% helpful and efficient. His manner was approachable and accessible. I would not hesitate to recommend his professional expertise, competitive cost and charming manner. At no point did I feel judged, intimidated or overwhelmed. This was an incredibly positive experience, many thanks to Mr Banwell and the rest of the team.

A perfect blemish free outcome!

My whole experience was fantastic from start to finish and I am extremely happy with my results. If I had any questions I also got a satisfactory answer and quickly. I would recommend Mr Banwell to anyone who was interested, and I would and probably will be back!

Diane C.

These were only minor operations, but I have never had anything like it before. All I can say is that it was an excellent place to start. The care was excellent from start to finish with a perfect blemish free outcome. I would certainly recommend the service to others.

I thought the team were helpful and efficient because they helped me to schedule my appointments around my working hours. They were always at hand to discuss any questions I had with a friendly and professional manor. Mr Banwell was amazing. He was totally honest and helped me decide which type of breast implant and procedure to have. We talked through my torrent of questions and concerns with ease. He asked me how I wanted my breast to look and I said I wanted them as natural as possible and that is exactly what I got. My new breasts have certainly made me feel more confident with ym body. I previously felt inadequate in the breast area and now I can?t stop smiling! I am so pleased with the outcome I only wish I?d done it sooner. The operation certainly wasn?t as scary as I thought it would be and I was looked after with the utmost care.

My expectations were fully met when I went to see Mr Banwell for the first time and he went through very carefully what he would be doing and giving me a realistic prognosis which was what I wanted. He came over as a very thorough and caring person. The skin graft was a complete success and although quite a large area, it is exceptionally neat and gives me no concern. On two further occasions I noticed lumps in other areas, and on getting in touch, appointments were made and Paul removed them immediately, once again very neatly. The after care is also extremely important to me and I have never been disappointed. Luckily I don’t know anybody going through the same thing as me but I would have no reservations in telling them to go and see Paul, as his thoughtfulness and care and attention throughout is excellent, he treats you as an individual. I would also say that I consider him now to be a friend as well as a surgeon. Whenever I am on the phone making future appointments his staff are always friendly, helpful, cheerful and willing to chat, but if you need any reassurance at any time they’re there for you.
