Chins are changing

Chins are changing

We are well underway with the wonderful appearance medicine treatment, Belkyra by Allergan, which permanently removes double chins. Both our male and female patients are loving the results, and we would like to share some insight with you into the treatment itself, from one of them:

My result so far, 1.5 weeks after my first treatment. There was no pain whatsoever, as a local anaesthetic was used. After about two hours, when the numbing had worn off, my chin area felt warm and heavy but there was no pain, and I carried on working as usual. The next two days I was quite swollen, but only in the injected area, which was about three times the usual size.. I was feeling a bit self-conscious so wore a scarf, but nobody seemed to notice. After one week the swelling is going down and still no one seems to notice, so I am no longer self-conscious at all. The swelling is reducing daily, the area injected is still numb which was explained to me during the consenting process and is to be expected for now. I expect to be a bit swollen for the next couple of weeks but it isn’t noticeable.
