The Solution: Kybella© in Aurora

Dr. Joseph Serota offers the first and only FDA-approved treatment to contour the chin profile: Kybella. Kybella is a prescription injection medication made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring acid in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat

What to Expect During a Kybella Treatment

Dr. Serota injects a precise amount of Kybella into the fat under your chin. The treatment begins destroying fat cells so they cannot store fat or accumulate. Healthy cells remain intact. One or more treatments may be necessary to achieve the results you desire. Over time the injections create a tighter and more youthful appearance to your neckline and face.

The best news is that once the fat cells are destroyed, your results should be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy weight after the procedure.

Kybella Recovery

Expect your chin and neck area to be bruised and/or swollen for about 48 hours after the injections. Dr. Serota will supply you with instructions on ways to minimize discomfort. He may recommend that you receive several smaller doses, rather than one large dose, to achieve the results you desire.

Potential Risks of Kybella

  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Hardness
