"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
A Restylane treatment is quick and involves precise injection where volume is needed. The practitioner will clean the face thoroughly and then mark the injection areas with ink. A fine needle delivers the solution into the skin gradually to reshape and gain youthful contours. The procedure is pain-free with just slight discomfort of the injection prick that can be helped with a numbing cream that is applied prior to treatment. The quantity that is injected depends on how much volume the injection site needs. If the cheek appears to sag, it is filled in until it creates a lifted appearance that is reminiscent of youth. The duration of treatment may last up to 30 minutes.
What to Expect
The results following a Restylane treatment are immediate. There may be swelling and redness around the treated areas, which will subside after several hours. Patients may resume work immediately but must avoid strenuous activities for about 24 hours. They are also advised not to put any pressure on the face and keep the head elevated so that the filler settles well to achieve the intended contours. Results may last up to one full year. This procedure is safe to repeat to maintain the desired results. For most patients, this is about every 6 months.
There are many filler options to consider today. In addition to other hyaluronic acid based fillers, there are also some that contain calcium-based gels, collagen, and polylactic acid. A fat transfer using the patient’s own fat is also popular. The ideal filler must have a function that best matches the patient’s condition. During the consultation, each filler will be discussed and chosen based on the area being treated and patient’s cosmetic goal.

Restylane is commonly used for lip augmentation. The results are natural looking with a soft feel that patients love. FDA requires the patient to be at least 21 years old to receive the treatment.
Which Facial Areas?
This treatment is best used to fill in severe facial creases around the nose and the mouth. It is an effective volumizer for sagging nasolabial folds and marionette lines, or even to decrease jowls.
Fillers or Traditional Lift?
Both correct different cosmetic issues. Surgical lifts are a better option for those whose skin has a significant loss of elasticity. Derma fillers are ideal treatments for those who still have a healthy skin tone, but are beginning to show facial aging symptoms such as fine lines, wrinkles and hollow areas. During the initial consultation, the doctor will discuss in detail all of the options available and the best approach to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals.
