26, Kybella in Texas

I went yesterday for a consultation to see if...

I went yesterday for a consultation to see if kybella was right for me. Since I'm severely impatient, I decided, "sure! I'll get it done today." Granted, I didn't do too much research on healing time. The nurse said the swelling will go down in 24-48 hours.

She administered the shots and I can honestly say, they were not painful. Towards the end though, I felt a burning sensation that I had to tell her to stop for a few seconds. Then she continued and I was in mild discomfort for a few minutes. They provided me With ice packs and I didn't feel pain afterwards. I was a little swollen after leaving the Drs office but I didn't think it was noticeable, I went to work right after!

I'm reading more reviews on here and there seems to be a miscommunication between the patient and administrators of kybella. It's been 24 hours and I'm still swollen... More so than yesterday. I look like a frog. I'm actual headed out of town today with my boyfriend and I didn't plan on telling him about my treatment. I hope he doesn't notice my chin fat has seemed to triple! I'll update with pictures in 3 days. I doubt the swelling will go down though from other reviews I've read :/

You can't tell from the front, but from the side it looks extremely bad.

6 days later

I just came back from vacation and I am back to looking the same as I did prior to kybella. I'm hoping I lose my double chin though because otherwise I spent $600 for nothing :( ... One thing I noticed though is my chin from the front looks somewhat more defined, maybe I'm imagining it but the picture where I'm in orange is me two days ago where my I felt my double chin was invisible from the front. Definitely not from the side thoughZ before you could see my double chin from the front so maybe it is starting to work.

UPDATE 6 weeks

It's been over 6 weeks and I can say that it is not REALLY worth it. I had my follow up today and they showed me my initial profile and the photo they took of me today. I saw a SLIGHT difference, but i feel that I could have easily had those results if I stopped being lazy and lost 10 pounds. I had a tiny pudge under my chin that was maybe the size of a thumb and now its no longer there. I mean, it was only $600 (at least I didn't pay over 1K). The nurse suggested that I could get another dose if I wanted, but said I look fine the way I am now. I guess I'm not disappointed but i would have used that money on botox for the massateer instead.
