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
"I have been a patient of Dr. George Weston for various procedures since 1987! He is a brilliant & talented surgeon who I would recommend to anyone for any type of procedure. I have always been amazed & satisfied with the results and appreciate his since of humor. He treats his patients like family and has a very calming demeanor. I also need to mention another "star" in the practice, Savannah Marks, a licensed esthetician. I have been undergoing her FYBBL & BBL spot treatment laser procedures and the results have been astounding! I suffer from rosacea & cystic acne & the lasers have done wonders for my skin! They also stimulate collagen and give my face a younger appearance."- D.N. / Yelp / Nov 07, 2019
"I turned 60 this year and even though I never had children, I did gain a lot of weight in my 40s then lost the gained weight in my 50s because I started a regular exercise routine. No matter how hard I exercised I couldn't get rid of my muffin top and the loose skin in my midriff. And when I lost weight, I lost more weight in my breasts than anywhere else. I decided to do a tummy tuck with Dr. Westin on the recommendation of a friend who is in her late 30s. She had a tummy tuck, breast enlargements and Brazilian butt lift and she looks amazing. I was afraid. But they are SO amazing, from the doctor to the team of people working there. They provided detailed instructions, had answers to all my questions and the results...well let's just say, if I posted a picture of my new tummy, you would think it was a photo of a 20 year old. I am back wearing a bikini again. Yay! Thank you Dr. Westin and thank to the Austin Westin Team. You are amazing and thank you for making me look amazing"- L.H. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
"Everything about my experience with Dr. Weston and his team was absolutely perfect. I spent a considerable amount of time researching and meeting with several of the top-rated practices in the DC metro area before choosing Dr. Weston to do my Mommy Makeover. This was truly the best decision I've ever made for myself, and was worth every penny. With many practices I felt like I was just another appointment, another process...if I could even get a call back. I immediately felt comfortable with the Austin-Weston Center team, and when I met Dr. Weston during the consult I knew he was who I wanted as my surgeon. I'm so happy with my decision and with the results. I utilized the overnight room, which is unique to their practice, and am so glad I had this as an option. It was a life saver to not go home the night of where my husband would have had to take care of me and 2 young children. If I do any procedures in the future, I will without a doubt be going back to Dr. Weston - he's incredible, as is the rest of his team. THANK YOU!"- J.N. / Yelp / Sep 30, 2019
"Dr. Weston is very knowledgeable and professional. staff is friendly. clinic is a bit expensive, but you get good results."- M.Z. / Yelp / Sep 20, 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.
