"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 had my BA done 8 days ago and I must say, this experience was amazing. My surgeon was Dr. Song. From the consultation to post op appointment I've been very happy. Wanda was so nice in helping me with the financial part. Stacey was wonderful in helping scheduling my appointment. & Dr. Songs assistant Kate was awesome and answered all of my questions and gave me insight into her personal experience. Prima Centers prices are also very affordable. I met with 4 doctors and Prima Center quoted me 500$-1000$ less than any other clinic I went to. Not only was the price lower, but I felt the most comfortable with Dr. Song and his staff. So, put those two together and I found the perfect clinic for me. I recommend them to everyone! My biggest fear was not choosing the right size or how my breast would look, and i have to say, excuse my french, Dr. Song is a F**KING ARTIST!!!! :D"- J.P. / Google / Nov 03, 2018

During pre-op consultation Dr. Stephenson answered all my questions. The day of surgery, I was a bit jittery Dr. Stephenson and hospital staff made me feel comfortable and took away my jitters. He did an awesome job on the surgery and I am feeling a lot better! During my post-op office visits he and Ursula always answer all my questions. I always have a good experience with all staff. I definitely made the right choice with Dr. Stephenson and team and I highly recommend!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Oct 29, 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.
