A patient asked 5 years ago
I had kybella injections on Friday July 7th so I’m nine days out. It seemed that the bull frog neck was shrinking but today I woke up to more swelling. Is this normal? I’ve read all the posts on here and haven’t encountered this question.

Kybella Recovery

Hi and thank you for your question! Swelling following Kybella treatment is common and some patients might experience delayed swelling although increased swelling a week later is not that common. Still if this is the only issue you are experiencing and the swelling is gradually improving, you can wait and watch. As always, a quick check and follow up with your provider is the best course of action. I hope it helps and good luck!
