I got Kybella (10 injections) under my chin last week and its still noticeably swollen and I really don’t like this look! How long until this bullfrog look will go away? Will it ever go away?

Swelling after Kybella Injection

Hi and thank you for sharing your concern here. Swelling after Kybella injection id quite common and it can last up to 7-10 days. Hence, what you are experiencing does not appear to be out of ordinary. However, if the swelling lasts for more than 10-12 days or if you experience other signs or symptoms, then you need to do follow up with your physician. I hope it helps and good luck!
