Puffy Cheeks after Kybella. Jelly skin. Any suggestions?
Non-operative skin tightening with SkinTyte or Exilis is an option at that point.
Thank you for your question elimarki. I understand your concern. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. The safety and efficacy of Kybella has not been studies in the cheeks. Therefore there may be swelling. It would be advisable to follow up with your doctor for best advice. Skin tightening treatments on the face include fractional CO2 laser resurfacing.
Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Kybella & the Cheeks
Did you have Kybella actually injected in your cheeks? Since it's only approved for treatment under the chin, you will need to have this assessed in person. I am so sorry that you are experiencing this.

Kybella is not FDA approved for the cheeks. I would definitely consult an expert to evaluate the area. If you need to improve volume you could consider Sculptra or Voluma for the area. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
