We have found that many patients take 4 weeks to get back to their original contour and then see some shrinking and tightening over the following 2-3 months. We have been using Kybella for the past 6 months and most patients have been thrilled with the improvement from their first treatment and have come back for a second treatment. As in many things with plastic surgery, you may might not notice an improvement day to day, but then be surprised when you look at the photographs from before and after your treatment. If there is fat to treat and enough Kybella was injected then you should see a change, but it may take time. And maybe you were hoping for a bigger change. Remember that most patients have 2-4 treatments to reach their goals. I have heard from doctors lecturing about Kybella that most treatment "failures" they have seen have been from under-treatment and have responded to additional treatment with the proper dosage. I would see your doctor at the 2 month mark and review photos from before and after. The improvement that you see at 6 weeks will typically still be increasing over the next few months. And most patients need at least 2 vials with a treatment to see enough of a change.
Is it possible to have no results at all after 6 weeks of treatment?

With Kybella many patients see results after first treatment, and it requires few treatments to reach desired result. For some patients it takes more treatments, while for some it takes more time to actually notice any changes. On the other hand, there is a percentage of patients that did not experience any changes after Kybella. It usually takes over 4 weeks after the last treatment to see desired results. I would advise you to have a check up after 90 days of your last treatment and look over your before and after photos with your provider. You may see the change. Good luck
I am assuming that you have only had one treatment during the 6 weeks? If so then yes, it is possible to not see results yet. I advise my patients that it will typically take between 2-4 sessions to see their final results. Hope this helps.

No results 6 weeks after treatment
Absolutely. I frequently tell my patients not to expect much of a result after their first injectable cycle. I always ask that they commit to at least two, usually three treatments to achieve the maximal effect.
Results with Kybella
Yes, even with properly injected Kybella, this is possible. It depends on how much fat is present and the dose that is used. Usually if a large amount of tissue is present 2-3 vials are necessary. Most of my patients see the greatest change after the second treatment. I would go back in a discuss it with the clinician that performed your injections. Best, Dr. Norcom
Most patients require 2-4 treatment sessions using 1-3 vials each time. I tell patients to not judge their results until they have finished their entire treatment. That being said, you should see some improvement after an adequate (correct dosing) treatment at the 4-6 week mark.
