Be youthful.

BELKYRATM (also known as Kybella in the United States) is an injectable drug used to reduce the fat in the submental area, also known as the area beneath the chin. This non-surgical treatment uses deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring substance found in the body – to destroy the membranes of fat cells, creating a beautifully contoured silhouette below the chin.

What is Fullness under the Chin?

The chin area (or “submental region”) can be prone to fullness – that is, collecting and holding fat that is often resistant to diet and exercise. Submental fullness also known as fullness, fat under the chin or a “double chin” is a manifestation of aging of the foundation of the skin, muscle, bone and fat – and it can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious appearance.

Fullness under the chin impacts both women and men, and is influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. It’s a common misperception that fullness under the chin only appears in those who are overweight – when in reality, it can occur in any body type.

Factors beyond your control

Whether we are conscious of it or not, everyone notices the chin area. A loss or lack of definition in a person’s chin profile is commonly caused by one or more of the following three factors:

  • Aging– The aging process can bring unwelcome changes that contribute to the appearance of fullness under the chin. These include extra skin, accumulation of fat, and loosening of the surrounding muscles.
  • Genetics – Genetics plays a role in the development of fullness under the chin as demonstrated by younger adult patients who have extensive fat deposition and a recessed chin. These changes are inherited and independent of aging but will tend to worsen with the addition of the normal aging process.
  • Weight Gain – Weight gain can also contribute to the appearance of fullness under the chin. Most individuals tend to gain weight as they age and a moderate weight gain may result in increased fullness under the chin area.
