Kybella & Post Op Swelling
I am so sorry to hear about the eye twitch but doubt that it has anything to do with your Kybella treatment. More likely it is related to your overall health and/or stress level. In terms of your post op swelling, every patient recovers differently. It isn't typical to still be swollen at 1 month post treatment, but I wouldn't worry. Speak with your injector about massaging the area and if your condition gets worse, schedule an appointment to be seen in person.

Swelling after Kybella
Thank you for your question anonymouslyspeaking. Kybella is an outstanding treatment for the double chin. Swelling is common. The most significant swelling occurs for the first week after a treatment but this can persist for several weeks. Hard nodules are possible after a treatment and they generally resolve on their own after several weeks. Some doctors recommend massage to help smooth out the nodules. Eye twitching is unlikely to have anything to do with Kybella. Please consult with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Swelling with Kybella injection
The eye twitching is almost certainly not related to the Kybella injection.
Also, let the swelling the lumpiness resolve before having another Kybella treatment session.
Kybella and Side Effects
Kybella is a fantastic treatment for the submental fat. There are a few common side effects such as swelling and lumps which can take a few weeks to month to resolve. Please return to your treating physician for examination. I often combine Kybella injections with Thermage for the best cosmetic results. Best, Dr. Green

Healing after Kybella injection
The eyelid twitching may be stress-related ("myokymia", unrelated to injection) and should resolve spontaneously with rest. If those symptoms do not resolve in a timely fashion, you may want to check in with your ophthalmologist for treatment options.
Best wishes for a fabulous contour!
