Meet Dr. Kochuba

Plastic Surgeon Reston, VA Andrew Kochuba, M.D., FACS Reston

Dr. Andrew Kochuba was born and raised in Mountaintop, PA, affectionally known as NEPA. Dr. Kochuba prides himself on his patient care and the relationships he forms, especially since he was once a patient. As a teenager, he underwent plastic surgery on his face and hand after an accident.

It was this misfortune and life-changing experience that caused him to pursue a career in plastic surgery, as well as his relationship with his grandfather, Dr. Joseph Campana, the first doctor in the family. He is dedicated to giving each patient the best experience, providing exceptional care, and achieving the best result possible. He is the oldest of three siblings (brother Matthew is a Trauma Surgeon at the University of Florida, and sister Rachel is a NICU nurse in Philadelphia). He earned his undergraduate degree in Pre-Med, Biology, and Mathematics at Muhlenberg College on a full academic scholarship. He graduated Summa Cum Laude as a Muhlenberg Scholar while playing Division III tennis. He was accepted into the National Institute of Health-National Science Foundation Summer Scholars Program, which he completed at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. Outside of the OR and office, he enjoys spending time with his wife, newborn son, family, and friends. They enjoy traveling, being foodies, mother nature, and just living life to its fullest. He is excited to be back in the DMV and to be a member of the Austin Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery team.
