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
"If you are thinking about plastic surgery and can't decide, consider Austin-Weston center for cosmetic surgery. I am 50 years old and first, I hesitated too, but after talking to Dr. Knotts I knew that I was in the right place. Dr. Knotts has great bedside manners, always does what's best for his patients and gives realistic, honest opinions. His work is amazing and after surgery my face looks 15 years younger. People realize that something has changed but cannot tell what exactly I had done. There are no traces of scars and my face looks natural! I feel different and my confidence is back. I love looking at myself in the mirror now! The staff was also very helpful and I will certainly come back again!"- N.I. / Yelp / Jun 12, 2019

"Dr. Poindexter is a sculptor. He was my surgeon for my under chin liposuction. The before and after pictures are beautiful and PERFECT! I cannot even tell you how grateful I am that I went forward with this. Anything done to your face is anxiety inducing. This entire place - Austin Weston - is exactly what you want in a cosmetic surgery facility. He also does my injectables - forehead Dysport. Clap clap clap."- S.L. / Yelp / Apr 22, 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.
