The doctor. Salvador is a specialist in Plastic Surgery of Alicante expert in the use of the innovative treatment called Belkyra , which allows to reduce the jowls and maintain facial harmony without resorting to surgery.


This innovative procedure has been operating in the United States for two years under the name of Kybella and has turned out to be a real revolution in the treatment of accumulated fat in the double chin, known as double chin. It is composed of deoxycholic acid, a very potent lipolytic agent that destroys the fat where it is injected and which is intended to replace conventional liposuction.

Use of Belkyra

The technique of using the product is microinjection. By means of an acetate template, the points to be treated of the jowls are marked and the product is injected by micropunctions.. It can be annoying for the patient, so it is advisable to use topical or local anesthetics. It can also produce an inflammatory effect in the first 24 or 48 hours that makes it necessary to use an oral anti-inflammatory.

The area to be treated is the submental or jowl. In other areas of localized fat the product has not been completely tested and for the moment it is not advisable to use it until there are definitive results.


Belkyra allows to reduce the jowl without resorting to surgery


Required sessions

It will depend on the amount of fat accumulated in the jowl, although on average two sessions are recommended that are carried out in the consultation itself and last about 20 minutes.

Results of chin reduction treatment without surgery

The results are very satisfactory, since with a first session patients are already able to experience very obvious results. With the second session the disappearance of the fat, the retraction of the skin, the marking of the mandibular line and the definition of the angle of the neck are truly extraordinary.

There is currently no other substance on the market that can achieve these same results, or even the liposuction itself, since the cutaneous retraction factor in surgery is a very important limiting factor.
