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 couldn't be more satisfied with Dr. Snyder and his staff! I first was introduced to the practice while going through chemotherapy and pregnant with our youngest son. Now almost a year later I finally had my DIEP Flap reconstruction last week. It's been a long journey but they are absolutely the best!!! I would recommend a million times. Thank you so much everyone at Breast and Body Center. You guys have made this whole process so worth it!! I'm in love with my new body."- R.W. / Facebook / Sep 18, 2017
"So where do I begin...Dr. Snyder is the plastic surgeon we all dream about. He is a dream personified into reality. Why you ask? Well...everything about that office is kismet. The front office staff are friendly. There are tons of free dermatology samples and sunscreen as his wife Réneé is a well-respected & reputable Dermatologist. His assistant Laurene Avis is very knowledgeable about all products, services, & surgical techniques. Veronica Alvarez handles billing and scheduling with finesse & ease. Then in walks this silver_haired tall cowboy. That's right y'all Blue suit and boots. Apparently, those boots were made for walking into operating rooms and crafting art. Yes...ART...I feel like a masterpiece after my surgery. I had two babies & my son left me with a hernia that needed repair amongst other signs of a struggle. Motherhood is beautiful...but can be hard when a size 0 girls carries an 8lb bouncing baby boy. Since my operation, I've had no complications. Scars are barely visible. I recommend squeezing vitamin-E capsules on the scar once he gives you the green light.I modeled some in my 20s. This was in the land of flat abs & thigh gaps. Lol! Now I'm mid 30s & I've been asked to promote & model for THREE different agencies! This all after being told I had aged out of modeling at 26. I've started a small business called Pepper Rose Retro...vintage pin-up clothing & accessories. He is a hidden jewel...trained in Europe & specializes in cosmetics and oncology procedures.Remember, I'm a Wake Forest trained PA...I would & will only go to the best. Special thanks Dr. Snyder and his team!"- T.O. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2017

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 Breast and Body Center of Austin. 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).
