For Submental Fullness: “Had this deoxycholic acid injected yesterday in chin & lower jaw. The pain injections on the right side made me feel like I was having dental work done without anesthetic it set my teeth on edge. I thought I would pass out. It is now 24 hours since the procedure & my face is still numb, like the dentist. It is very drooped making eating, speaking, swallowing difficult. (Left side was painful but not as bad & has no numbness, drooping etc, just some normal swelling). Just have to see what happens in the next few week.”

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) for Submental Fullness: “If you are prone to headaches, you may get one. I am and I did. It started a few hours after the injection and I still have the headache almost 24 hours later, but I haven't taken anything for it because my doctor said Advil, Aspirin, Aleve will cause bruising and possible bleeding with Kybella. She recommended Claritin but I took Benedryl because that is what I had. It does sting shortly after the injection but ice helps. I kept the ice on for hours (on and off) and that really helped. My neck did swell anyways where the injections were given. Hopefully this is all worth it!”

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) for Submental Fullness: “Just had first injections. 42 injection sites. The doctor used a topical gel to help numb the area first. Side effects during the procedure were slight stinging and feeling of fullness. (Swelling). After procedure, I kept an ice pack on the area, on and off, for about 4 hours. This helped with the stinging which lasted from 4:30pm, when the injections were given, until about 8pm. After that, just a lot of swelling and feeling of fullness. No trouble sleeping that night. Took 600mg of Motrin before bedtime. Cost was $500 per vile (a $100 per. vial discount off his normal price) it took 4 vials. Still very swollen the next morning with some slight numbness in the injection area. Interested to see how long the swelling lasts.”
