5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Love my Tummy Tuck!! - Calhoun, CA

he gave me a very very low tummy tuck scar; loved his staff; love his facility

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

OMG! Getting Very Nervous! - Calhoun, GA

I am a nurse an have known of his work for several years. I also consult with him on a yearly basis about TT but always back out. Now why didn't I do this years ago? He is an artist and it is very important that it looks good to him and the patient as well.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Breast Lift with Implants (400cc Silicone)

Caring, wonderful doctor. Double board certified. Great work, cares about what your wants are, and will make sure you are happy with the results. GREAT WORK!

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

SmartLipo Flanks, Inner/Outer Thighs, Tummy (142lb, Size 9) - Calhoun, GA

He is wonderful! Caring, and his staff acts like family. I've never been treated negatively and everyone is so chatty and friendly. They call to check up on you and they even gave me free laser surgery as a gift. :) They are very thorough too... I'll defiantly go back.

5 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

Abdominal Liposculpture - Calhoun, GA

After careful review of several doctors, I came across Dr. N's web site and made an appointment for a consultation. His office was nearly 3 hours away but I am VERY glad I made the trip. After reviewing his before and after pictures and speaking with Dr. N and his staff, I knew he was the doctor for me. Dr. N is an artist AND a perfectionist; two important qualities in a cosmetic surgeon. Now, my only regret is that I didn't find him sooner. I continue to make the drive to see Dr. N for bo-tox and other services because I simply wouldn't trust another doctor to do as good of a job. I highly recommend Dr. N to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. My stomach is FLAT and I've never felt better.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Facelift - Chattanooga, T

I can say that it was the best decision that I have ever made for myself!!! No one thinks that I am 68 years old. I am just happy that my face matches my spirit now. I highly recommend Dr. Nease. His skill level and caring heart and his wonderful staff should make Southern Surgical Arts your choice for any cosmetic procedure.

4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

my mommymakeover journey- oct 19, 2010 - tennessee

Dr. N comes with very good reviews and has assured me if my results are not what either one of us are happy with he will do a revision when considering plastic surgery this is comforting.

3 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Great Belly Button – Chattanooga, TN

Charming, but less than optimal outcome. My scar has a ledge because the fat was not evened out before I was sewn up. Dog ears. Horizontal scar is short- which is positive, but could have been lower even if it meant the t-scar was longer. Tension caused extreme and new stretch marks on fresh skin.

24 Yr Old, Chin Implant, Neck Lipo, Buccal Fat Removal - Chattanooga, TN

Hey guys! first time posting on here, I am super excited for my surgery that is coming up in 2 1/2 weeks! It's been scheduled for 3 months now.. so I am more than ready. My small chin and profile has always bothered me since I was 16. Can't believe this is actually about to happen! Any tips I need to know about?
