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.

- 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

"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 had an appointment two weeks ago for lip fillers with Emily Taylor and she was absolutely awesome, caring and very knowledgeable. I loved the results and will definitely go back to see her."- I.G. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2020
"Very professional and the results were better than I had even hoped. The staff was also super friendly. Best facility all around that I have visited. 10/10 would recommend and I plan to go again!"- M.L. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2020
"Recently, I had my lips injections. I can not exprese how amazing and professional they are. Emily Taylor, the nurse practitioner in the center is the one who preformed the injections. She is such a perfectionist and meticulous in her work. She takes the time to make sure the lips are as it should be. When I showed her the picture that I wanted my lips to look like, she advised me to do it on two step. I am so happy that I followed her advice. I am thinking to go there for my skin removal surgeries when I am ready to do it"- L.A. / Yelp / Jul 06, 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.
