5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Dr Knotts is the best!!

I just love Dr Knotts and Austin Weston. He is 100% committed to getting you the result you want, and will work hard to get you there. He really cares about his patients being truly happy with their result. When I was meeting with plastic surgeons, they all had the same qualifications, but I felt most comfortable and at ease with Dr Knotts which is why I picked him. I'm so thankful I did!...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I'm a perfectionist. Dr. Knotts gave me the perfect body.

I couldn't be happier with my new look! Dr. Knotts is a true artist and a compassionate, kind, and attentive surgeon. From his approach to choosing the right size breast implants for me (we did computer modeling AND a custom fitting with different sized implants) to recommending the appropriate surgical technique for my needs, he was a true partner in this process. As a result, I got exactly...

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

Experience and result are 150% better than I was expecting - EXCELLENT

Dr. Knotts and his team are absolutely incredible. Not only did they make me comfortable each step of the way, they really felt like close friends with how much they cared and responded to my needs. Living in Virginia beach and having surgery in Reston was a concern for myself and my family, but I wouldn't have it any other way so that I could see Dr. Knotts for this procedure. Even after...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Amazing injector with an artistic eye

I have had Botox and Juvederm injected by Dr. Knotts twice now. My Botox injections are perfect and I never need a touch up. What Dr. Knotts is a true genius at is injecting my Juvederm and Juvederm Ultra. I no longer see the jowls I was forming and have a lift I did not have prior and my lips look amazing! I have uneven lips, a scar, scar tissue etc and they look even, more full, natural and...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Amazing experience with a top notch surgeon!

After having three children I lost confidence in my body. Despite exercise and a healthy diet, there was nothing I could do about all of the loose skin on my stomach. From the minute I walked through the doors I felt comfortable. The staff at Austin-Westin is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Dr. Knotts was very thorough in answering my questions and took the time to ensure my...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

a beautiful location

Earlier this year January 6, 2017 I had surgery at the Austin Weston Center for cosmetic surgery. The location was easy to get to my doctor was pleasant and made me feel comfortable... Great staff!!!

5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Mole Removal - Reston, VA

Dr. Knotts was absolutely excellent! I think it's always a little awkward to go in for a non-necessary procedure. You feel a little vain, a little silly, and you always worry it's going to hurt. Dr. Knotts put me at ease immediately, though. He was friendly and very clear with my questions. I can't comment on the aftercare quite yet, but I'm confident it will be consistent with the rest of my experience at Austin-Weston: excellent.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Gifted surgeon with excellent bedside manner

Dr Knotts is a gifted surgeon with a terrific bedside manner and genuine care for is patients. For me he did a breast lift and reduction along with liposuction to my back and flanks. It has been a pleasure to have him as my surgeon. As a the daughter of a plastic surgeon (retired), I am pretty picky and I can recommend Dr. Knotts with no hesitation.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

41yo, Breastfed 4 Kids, Now Flat Chested, Breast Augmentation 450cc, Virginia - Reston, VA

Finally made the decision to get my boobs done after breastfeeding 4 kids. A friend recommended Austin-Weston Center for cosmetic surgery. The staff is friendly and welcoming. I went a few times for my try-ons and pre-op. Didn't really shop around too much, I was content with them and decided to book my surgery. I am 1 day post op, far so good I guess. Simply working on pain control for now....

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Best Tummy Tuck - Reston, VA

Dr.Knotts has a splendid personality and a great sense of humor. He is very honest during the consultation and explains everything in detail. I felt very comfortable from the first meeting, and I am glad I chose Dr.Knotts.
