"I love Dr Nakano! He is so thorough in his consultation. All questions I had concerning my procedure were addressed before I even got the chance to ask them. He is laid back and extremely honest about the results you can expect. He told me about two different options I had for my surgery and very truthfully informed me that if I wanted option 1 then I would be better served by an oral surgeon because that procedure was routinely performed by them. I opted for the second option and Dr Nakano achieved a result better than I was expecting.After my surgery, he called to check on me at home (I think, I was on drugs so maybe I dreamed that). And even though the next day was a Saturday he had me come back to the center to do the post op check up. I had a really great experience and wish I had the money to have him do my boobs. Maybe in a couple of years!"- C.S. / Yelp / Sep 14, 2017

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.
