The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery is pleased to offer a noninvasive alternative to neck liposuction. Kybella is an FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. It is a great option for men and women who have stubborn fat pockets under the chin area or who simply desire a slimmer or more defined neckline. Kybella is comprised of a deoxycholic acid formula, which is a substance that is naturally found in the body. When Kybella is injected into the neck area, it specifically targets fat cells to reduce the appearance of a double chin. To schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, call our Reston, VA office today.
The best candidates for Kybella:
- Have moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, which gives the appearance of a double chin
- Desire a nonsurgical approach for fat reduction
- Desire long-term results
- Understand Kybella offers a fraction of surgical result and is not a substitute for liposuction of the neck
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 11, 2017
"What can I say except THANK YOU!Dr. Weston has to be the BEST surgeon ever!After talking to several other surgeons I was hesitant to have my 35 year old silacone implants removed because I worried about major complications that could occur during surgery. Dr. Weston assured me that he would be able to remove them and told me not to worry. The surgery went well and my recovery time was minimal. I had very little discomfort during the first week of healing. I attribute that to his skill, experience, and attention to detail.It’s been 4 weeks since my surgery and I am 100% satisfied with my results and Dr. Weston."- N.B. / Google / Mar 14, 2019
"I cannot say enough good things about Dr Poindexter and his staff. From start to finish, the entire experience was efficient and put me at ease. If you are on the fence about having a procedure done, just go for the free consult and check it out. The surgery center is beautiful with excellent staff who are always happy to help. My expectations were exceeded and then some."- M.M. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2019
"Dr. Weston and staff were beyond great - the whole process was a favorable experience- after surgery, they were available should any complications surface - NONE did !!! :-) It is just shy of (3) months subsequent to the surgery and the results are very good - am appreciative of Dr. Weston, Cheri (patient consultant), and all of the other team members that made my surgery a relative success!!!! Strongly recommend sourcing to AW and of course, Dr. Weston, for future plastic surgery needs - EXCELLENT!!!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Mar 07, 2019
"You could tell that this was his passion - From Day 1, the staff was caring and very helpful through the process. Dr. Poindexter whom performed my "Mommy Makeover" was great from the beginning! You could tell that this was his passion and his work shows for it! Everyone at Austin-Weston made sure I understood everything that was going on and very knowledgeable on any questions asked. Thank you Austin-Weston for a great first experience..."- M. / RealSelf / Mar 05, 2019
What to Expect
A number of small injections will be made in the fat under the chin during this outpatient procedure. A local numbing agent is also used as there is some pain and burning immediately after injection that lasts several hours. The treatment typically takes around 5 – 10 minutes. For the first few days afterward, there is significant and visble swelling in the neck area that usually resolves by one week. Patients usually need 2 – 4 treatments to see a result and the injections are spaced out by 6 weeks.
Some patients may notice a reduction of fat after just a single treatment but most patients will notice improvements after 2 – 3 treatments. This result is significantly less than a surgical outcome and reserved for patients who are not surgical candidates.
