27 Years Old and Need This Double Chin Gone - Miami, FL

I was injected with Kybella on Thursday, 8/13/15, in the afternoon. I decided not to get numbed up with lidocaine/epinephrine because I hate the numb feeling and I had dinner plans later that night. The injections weren't painful at all but the product actually gives you a burning sensation. I went to dinner that night and my chin/neck was gradually getting more and more swollen. I did not ice. When I woke up the next morning I was definitely not expecting the swelling to be that bad. Sure, I was forewarned that it would be bullfrog-like, but wow was it bad. I literally started crying. I am not new to cosmetics I've had swelling from fillers before, had plastic surgery, etc. THE SWELLING IS BAD! I iced during lunch and compressed as much as I could and I feel it helped some. It is Saturday morning and I'm currently icing. The area still feels tender and hard in the injection site. I do have bruising, but nothing major. It's the swelling that's horrible. I feel the swelling is worse in the morning. I'll keep everyone posted.

I'm still swollen. Doesn't look any better to me, but my chin doesn't wobble as much. Still bruised, bought some arnica today. Let's see how it goes. I hate this swelling, makes me self-conscious.

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't responded in many days, I had unexpected surgery last week. The swelling very minimal, still not at baseline in my opinion. Hopefully I start seeing improvements soon!
