Do you have an aesthetic goal to drop a few pounds and lose a "double chin" appearance? Have diet and exercise failed to produce the results you want? If not, our Austin, TX board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ned Snyder IV may have a solution worth trying with Kybella. The Food and Drug Administration has approved Kybella to be injected into the submental fat right underneath your chin. This innovative injectable can decrease moderate-to-severe fatty tissues that cause you to look like you have a double chin. Even the most disciplined person, who follows a healthy diet and workout regimen, cannot escape a hereditary chin that accumulates pockets of stubborn fat. Give your genetics a helping hand with deoxycholic acid, the main ingredient in Kybella, to reduce fat beneath your chin. At our offices in Round Rock and Austin, Dr. Snyder provide consultations for Kybella injections. Let us help you achieve the slimmer look you desire.
"I had an amazing experience with beautiful results - I couldn’t be happier with my breast augmentation results. Everyone that I met from my first consultation to my post follow up after surgery were extremely helpful and informative. Dr. Snyder himself is an amazing surgeon. My results are perfect and better than I ever could have imagined. I highly recommend him if you are thinking about this procedure. His PA, Jen was extremely helpful and informative as well. The facilities from Dr. Snyder’s office to the surgical site used were clean, beautiful and comfortable. I felt well taken care the entire time and am thrilled with my results."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 08, 2018

"Dr Ned Snyder is by far the best plastic surgeon. I am 5 weeks into my post breast augmentation surgery and I am extremely happy with my results. He did exactly what I wanted and I am a 38 year old high level executive that wanted to jump right back into work with no questions or Issues and I was able to do exactly that with him. One of my best friends who is a breast cancer survivor said it was the best job she has ever seen and is even thinking about going to him to finish her reconstruction. His staff has been amazing and responsive. My results look absolutely perfect with my frame and this is more than I ever could have imagined. I was one of those people that was hesitant for years before doing this surgery and after going through it, it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made and that is big for me to say! Dr. Ned Snyder is the best."- G.H. / Google / Apr 14, 2018
"Best Breast Augmentation plastic surgeon! Dr. Ned Snyder and his PA, Jen have been amazing. I am extremely happy with my results and the entire process. I received breast augmentation surgery which was something I was nervous about initially, but Dr. Snyder and his team answered all my questions and made me feel so comfortable from the initial consultation to all my follow up appointments. I told him what I wanted and he did exactly that, but even better than I could have imagined. I would recommend that if this is something you are thinking about that you see him. I have friends and family that want to do it after seeing my results. He and his team are hands down the best!"- J.G. / Yelp / Mar 30, 2018
After cleaning the submental area, Dr. Snyder will inject Kybella into multiple sites under the chin. Each in-office treatment session is typically 15 – 20 minutes at Snyder Plastic Surgery at The Breast and Body Center. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, is a naturally-occurring molecule that can be by the body to breakdown and destroy fat. Once destroyed, these fat cells will not return. After the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment with Kybella is not expected.
Kybella is an alternative to surgical neck liposuction for patients who only need fat removed under their chin. If the patient wants fat removed from the rest of the neck, surgical neck liposuction is the best option. Dr. Snyder will help every patient determine their best treatment plan after listening to their concerns and goals in the initial consultation.
During/After The Procedure
Most patients will begin to see visible results in 2 – 4 treatment sessions. Patients can have up to 6 treatment sessions with less than a month in between each session. After the treatment, patients may have temporary swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, or redness.

While it is being researched, Kybella is not currently approved to eliminate fat in any other areas of the body and Dr. Snyder will only inject Kybella into the area below the patient’s chin. The uses of Kybella will hopefully be expanded, but for now, a patient can enjoy getting rid of their double chin with Kybella.
Before receiving Kybella injections, Dr. Snyder will ask about the patient’s current medications and medical conditions during their initial consultation. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not get Kybella injections. Kybella is also not available for anyone under the age of 18.
Are There Side Effects?
Kybella side effects may include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness or formation of small areas of firmness. Care must be taken when injecting Kybella in the chin to avoid the risk of nerve injury and dysphagia (difficulty swallowing).
