Q: What will my recovery look like after my KYBELLA® treatment session?

A: KYBELLA® is a liquid that is injected into the submental fat. The vast majority of patients experience swelling following this procedure. The swelling significantly decreases after the first few days but may persist for a few weeks depending on the amount of KYBELLA® injected and your individual response. KYBELLA® injections will not inhibit your ability to work. Most patients report a burning sensation lasting <10 minutes following the injection. We recommend icing on and off through out the day and remaining upright when possible that day to help reduce swelling.
