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.
Kybella Ideal Candidates
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
"I have never had cosmetic surgery until this year and trying to find a doctor was nerve racking with such little experience! After weeks of looking for a reputable surgeon, I set up consults with a few places. Austin-Weston was hands down the best of all, with a quick response time and extremely polite and friendly staff. After an amazing consult with Sharan Khanna (request her if you are setting up an appointment!) and Dr. Poindexter, I was all set for my breast augmentation. The surgery went incredibly smooth and healing has been a breeze. I am almost 1 month post-op and the results are incredible. I have zero pain, pretty much invisible scars, and I will absolutely be returning to Austin-Weston. If you are seeking a professional and friendly surgeon, please request Dr. Poindexter. He made me feel incredibly comfortable and relaxed in a situation that can be easily scary for a first timer."- A.H. / Yelp / Jun 11, 2020
"Would Do It Again - I had the BEST surgical experience that I have ever had! I historically become very very sick postoperatively. The clinic spared no expense to provide the best care possible. I am very pleased with the outcome of my procedure and specifically Dr. Knotts. I would recommend him to anyone."- C. / RealSelf / Jun 10, 2020
"Great Results and Feel Amazing! - Dr. Pointdexter and the staff were amazing! They answered all of my questions, took their time, and gave the pros and cons of the procedure. The best part was that the results came out better than I thought and look NATURAL! The pricing was affordable and they provide a lot of options on how you can pay. My overall experience was a good one and really have no complaints. I would recommend them to anyone who even has a thought about wanting to get something done. You will not regret it!"- C. / RealSelf / Jun 08, 2020
"Great Practice - Shima is wonderful! She explains everything prior to treatments and answers all of the many questions I seem to always have. Her schedule is flexible which is great! Also, she recommended some wonderful skin care products which I absolutely love! I had previously gone elsewhere for treatment but will definitely go to Austi- Weston for all future needs."- S. / RealSelf / Jun 08, 2020
What to Expect with Kybella
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.
Kybella Anticipated Results
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.
