"Dr. Philip Nakano has a genuine personality! Excellent bedside manners and cares a great deal about his patients. His facial procedures are beautiful! I trust him."- C.E. / Facebook / Aug 25, 2015
"I recently had a full abdominoplasty with lipo of the flanks by Dr. Stephenson. I would have to say Dr. Stephenson is excellent. His bedside manner is impeccable. I would recommend him over and over. I was so afraid to have this surgery done but no question went unanswered and he just makes you feel very calm and comfortable about the procedure. Even after I got home from surgery later that night he personally called to check on me. He is excellent. I am 10 days post-op and I am loving my results. I can't say thank you enough to Dr. Stephenson and the Prima Surgery Center staff they are all excellent, caring and very professional."- W.S. / Google / Aug 25, 2018
"Results Are Better Than I Ever Imagined - I had a Mommy Makeover with Dr. Song in April. I initially had consultations set up with three additional surgeons, with the Prima Center as my first appointment. I was so impressed with Dr. Song's expertise and bedside manner, that I canceled my other appointments as soon as I returned home. He listened carefully to what I hoped to achieve, showed me visuals of what the procedures entail,..."- J. / RealSelf / Aug 15, 2018
"Dr. Stephenson is a gem! It took several visits to other providers to find a physician that really took the time to listen which lead to proper testing, diagnosis and treatment. He is so personable, professional and great at what he does. He called me when referrals/recommendations were needed and consulted via phone with my other physicians to coordinate the best care for my case (which isn’t easy). During office visits I never felt rushed and all my questions were answered."- S.W. / Healthgrades / Aug 09, 2018
"Immediately upon arrival to the office, the staff was very receptive and warm. They identified me by name based on my appointment times, asked how I was and how my day was and then asked me to take a seat. Not one visit have I taken a seat in the waiting room and waited longer than 15 minutes. Very prompt with times and knowledgeable about all information related to the entire process. Very much understand what my time means to me. Love the office environment, the staff and for sure the doctor. Ursula is the bomb, love her!!! One of the best plastic surgeons, watched his work in the OR as a nurse and made the decision to let him do my procedure. I am very picky with who provide me care, he is the one who can all the time."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 08, 2018

Kybella Neck Lipo FAQs
Once the Kybella treatments have destroyed the fat cells in the submental area, they are permanently gone. However, patients should maintain a healthy, stable weight after the procedure to prevent weight gain in other areas.
Kybella has been approved by the FDA, scientists have performed over 20 clinical studies, and over 1,600 patients have been treated with Kybella. Patients should disclose their full medical history to their plastic surgeon during their consultation, including any current medications, herbs, and supplements. Kybella is not approved for use in patients under 18 years old and should not be used outside the neck and chin area.
Kybella Vs. Liposuction?
Kybella neck liposuction and traditional neck liposuction are both effective and similarly priced, but Kybella does not involve surgery, general anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery. Your plastic surgeon will discuss both methods during the initial consultation and help the patient determine their best treatment plan.
