Thank you for your question. You did not submit a photo so I cannot tell what
your treatment area looked like before treatment and after treatment. I tell my
Kybella patients that they can begin to see results 2 weeks post treatment
however they should allow a few months for results to take its full effect.
There may be some swelling still and a full tightening of the skin can take a
I love kybella for little pouches of fat under the neck. Not only does it dissolve the fat it seems to tighten the neck's skin as well. There is some swelling after treatments, so one does need to be patient, it can take several months for all of the edema to go away and the skin to tighten. However the removal of fat is permanent, and it is such a minimally invasive procedure, that it seems worth the wait to me. Best regards, Marla Klein MD
I love kybella for looseness under the chin. It not only permanently gets rid of the fat but also tightens the skin under the chin. The results take a few months to appreciate but can be very dramatic and beautiful.
There is some swelling that maybe residual at this point. Without pictures it is a little difficult to comment further.
Thank you very much for your question.
Without seeing pictures (including "befores"), it is difficult to make any comments or recommendations. I would continue to see your injector for assessments. Best of luck!
I have found a combination of Kybella and Thermage works amazingly well at tightening the skin and reducing the fat. If you are scared of needles, the Coolmini by Coolsculpting works amazingly well. Best, Dr. Green
It is difficult to answer your question without seeing photos or an in-person exam. Kybella is typically injected down to just above the level of the thyroid notch (a portion of the cartilage that surrounds your voice box). It may be that Kybella was not injected into that area or you could have residual swelling making that area look more prominent. It is normal to need more than one treatment. The number of treatments is based on how much fat you have to begin with and the eventual goal.
Best of luck,
