Any doctor in Toronto will offer Belkyra (Kybella) for off label use (lower abdomen)?

Kybella for the abdomen
Thank you for your question brockto. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. I am not aware of physician in Toronto that use Kybella off label for this purpose. This would require a large dose and may be cost prohibitive.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Thank you for your question. Kybella is only approved by the FDA for use underneath the chin. For an approach to toning the stomach, please consider SculpSure. The SculpSure laser has been clinically approved to eliminate up to 25% of that stubborn to lose subcutaneous fat in the belly and flanks regions. I suggest that you move forward and consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Off label use of Kybella
As you know, Kybella is only FDA approved for treating submental fat. Any other use is considered "off label" so you will really need to trust your surgeon and his or her understanding of anatomy. Personally, I would probably encourage you to try something else for the mid section such as CoolSculpt.

Kybella is currently only approved for submental fat and has undergone rigorous studies for this approval. I would not consider off label areas at this time. Please look into Coolsculpting or other effective and approved ways to reduce fat. Best, Dr. Green
Kybella off-label use
I would make sure you consider any off-label use with an experienced and knowledgeable plastic surgeon.
Need to call around
However, it can dissolve fat in other locations, especially in small areas.
You would need to call around to find a specialist to do this.
