Belkyra (or Kybella) is a revolutionary new injection that provides a non-surgical solution to the fat deposits under the chin and on the upper part of the neck. We have been using it since 2017.
Premium Plastic Surgery – which is led by Dr. Pataki – started to use this „double chin removal” treatment among the first in Hungary. Belkyra (Kybella) contains 10 milligrams of deoxycholic acid per ml. This naturally occurring substance in the human body is able to selectively destroy fat cells in the larger contiguous area. However, with proper use, other connective tissue cells and muscle cells (as well as fat tissues directly below the muscles and under the skin) remain intact and healthy.
The treatment should only be performed by a plastic surgeon with experience and it is essential to thoroughly examine the chin and neck area to see if the method can be applied. In the case of advanced skin sagging, the perfect solution is not this injection, but a combination of liposuction and neck lift.
It should be emphasized that serious anatomical knowledge and deep tissue experience are needed for a perfect treatment plan, and for the accurate administration – experience in dermatology is not enough. Besides these, a certain degree of spatial vision and artistic attitude are required. In our opinion, this kind of knowledge is available only in the field of plastic surgery (and not in the field of dentistry or dermatology). The effectiveness of the treatment depends on the precise administration and the “plastic-aesthetic” planning. For this, we must take account of all the individual characteristics of the patient.
Besides Dr. Pataki, our clinic has other physicians who are well-trained in the administration of Belkyra (Kybella) and learned the technique from him.
If the patient is an ideal subject for injection of Belkyra, they should expect a short intervention that takes about 15-20 minutes. Depending on the number of fat cells you want to eliminate, this is to be repeated until the most beautiful profile is formed. There must be at least one month between the treatments, as the result is constantly developing. Sometimes one treatment is enough.
With proper administration, only temporary swelling and mild redness may occur as a side effect. But with a non-professional administration, abscesses, prolonged inflammation, and vascular inflammation may also occur. Belkyra should only be used to treat the „double chin” area. We use a variety of dosing tricks/methods to reduce complications and enhance the effect of the enzyme.
As under the laws in force, this injection treatment is specifically referred to as “aesthetic treatment”, we believe that you can get the greatest expertise in a plastic surgery clinic.
dear Dr. Pataki, i contacted you some months back, i would like some minor lipo on the face, plus fat injections to the face area.
secondly. i had some lipo on my stomach area done a few years back by a discount service in poland. boy that was a mistake. they did something called "high definition" on my abs, and they not only did not complete the entire abs area, they didn't take even HALF the fat out, and now 2 years later, its still just looks worse, uneven and quite an odd shape it has given. plus i should have done my low back as well, maybe Dr. Pataki would help me with these areas.
1. what KIND of lipo do you use?
2. can you do micro lipo on the face for the jowl and under the neck areas?
3. for fat reinjection, i was thinking cheekbone increase, a small amount in the cheeks themselves, to fill gaps from ache and aging, as well as some under the eyebrows to lift the brows up a little, and some in the chin to help my profile. i don't expect MAJOR changes. it just needs a little here and there.
4. ive also considered a rhynoplasty, so if you want to give me a plan for that too, i will consider it (depending on the downtime)
attached are some photos as you had requested.
i won't be back in budapest until late october or early november. And, i might only be there for a few weeks, so we would need to schedule things around that time period.
please give me an idea on appointment availabilities.
thank you, Nadine

Dear Doctor Pataki,
Thank you for your answer.
I've now shortlisted a couple of praticians after a few checks, and have a few more questions before getting to my final decision.
- How many facial fat transfers have you performed? On males?
- do you centrifuge the fat?
- what quantity do you reinject per droplet?
- do you have any pictures of your work?
- Could you book an initial consultation for this procedure?
- Are you available in january for this procedure?
Thanks in advance for your answer,

Dear dr. Pataki,
Please supply me with information on fat grafting which is used for volume restoration. I am considering both methods – hyaluronic acid and fat. Where do you take the fat from and what is its take rate.

Do you perform both procedure? If yes, how do you perform it? Do you have pictures of patients 3/6 months postop? What is the different?
Thanks in advance for your answer. Christine

Hello dr. Pataki,
I have heard back form Manka, my friend and she is curious about what the Premium plastic surgery clinic suggested, the fat grafting. Please find her questions below:
Is it the same than fat injections ? How is that procedure? What area they take it from? What is the suggested recovery time?
I have notice that my upper lip is going downward. Could injecting a little bit of fat in my cheeks lift my smile?
Could I have this done this summer on it's own?
I thought to fill the lines on my forehead also, perhaps the same method would work?
And, could she have an appointment for the last week of July for a consultation?
thank you for your help!

I am sending you photos of my Nose. I would like to get rid of the bump on the nose and generally straighten it. I am very scared of the procedure, especially that I will not like the effect.
Could you please be so kind and provide me with a consultation to know if there is anything that I should be worried about?
