My Doctor Encouraged Kybella over Chin Lipo. San Antonio, TX

I booked a consultation for Smart Lipo on my chin....

I booked a consultation for Smart Lipo on my chin. When doing my research, Chin Lipo should have been about $2,000 and only a week of downtime.
I have received 1 round of Kybella for $1,000.00.
At 2.5 weeks later, I look worse, than I did before the shots. All my research shows that I will suffer from the same Bull Frog Throat with the second shots.
To be honest, I have felt UGLY for 2 weeks. Why would I want to do this again? Oh, and I had a nasty bruise for 8 days with the shot. My husband was mortified and didn't want me in public.

Going in for my 2nd round of Kybella tomorrow

Am I crazy? Its been 10 weeks and I feel like I am back to baseline. I am unsure I see any difference. Oh well, I better see a difference after this 2nd round. Promise to post a follow up.

Kybella - not seeing much of a difference after 2 rounds of shots and 5 months. Today I went in for my third round of shots.

First round of Kybella Mid April (just under .4).
Second round of Kybella Mid July (just under .4)
Today, Sept 14th, had third round of Kybella.
My doctor said they have seen dramatic results after even 1round of shots. I guess my body isn't participating. I am very hopeful that the third round of shots will show a marked improvement.

Two weeks after 3rd round of Kybella

Two weeks after my 3rd set of shots, see any difference? I'm hopeful.....

3 weeks after 3rd round of Kybella

I still see swelling. No change for the better, yet. Trying to remain hopeful.

4 weeks after my 3rd round of Kybella

No change :-(

Kybella after 3 rounds

Very slow change. I am starting to see a tiny difference.

3 rounds of Kybella over 8 months

I expected faster results.
Just now seeing some. I am tall and lost about 4 pounds over the last 8 months.

Today I received my 4th round of Kybella Shots

At the follow up visit today, I saw a definite difference in her photos of me looking directly at the camera. Too bad I've only been taking photos at home of my profile.

We decided that I may be one of the clients that needs 4, 5 or 6 rounds to accomplish my goal.

Today I received about 17 tiny shots (this is my 4th round of Kybella).

I'll update you all with photos in a few weeks. It didn't burn as much as it did last time. Perhaps I'm used to it now? Or less sensitive.

2 weeks after 4th round of Kybella

Still swollen, not at baseline yet.
Interesting to compare the 2 week photo after 3rd round of shots to the 2 week photo of 4th round of shots.
Bruising went away by 7th day.

Swelling is still there.

Kybella works

Just returned from vacation. In the photos I took with my family, i noticed that I actually looked good in MOST of them! A year ago, I would have hated my chin in 80% of them. The photo above shows 8 weeks after my 4th round of Kybella versus 8 weeks after the third round.

4 rounds of Kybella is not enough

Well, it's been over 12 weeks since my 4th round of Kybella. I think I have had about a 20-25% decrease in fat. Not good enough results for the time and money spent.

Kybella is a waste of money and time!

Do not waste your money.

I was strongly encouraged to try Kybella after I arrived for a chin lipo consult. I was told Kybella would be less expensive and I would need two rounds. I have had 4 rounds over 1 year! There is a negligible difference. I disappointed that a doctor would encourage this over lipo under my chin.
