"The facility and staff is great!! A very comfortable environment. Dr. Nuveen did a fantastic job on an earlobe construction surgery that I had at CSA. He and everyone there made sure I was very comfortable the whole time, would highly recommend him and Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates!!"



"Dr Nuveen & Staff Are The Best... I Had A Breast Reduction & Brachioplasty With Him In November I Am Patiently (not so patiently) Counting Down The Days To My Lower Body Lift. He & His Staff Go Above & Beyond To Take Care Of You & Your Needs.... I’ve Asked Every Single Crazy Question That You Can Imagine I Am Always Met With Open Honest & Upfront Answers... I Will Continue Singing His Praises To Anyone That Will Listen That Is Interested In Cosmetic Surgery"



"I had the most wonderful experience with Dr. Nuveen and his staff this week. I flew in from LA just to have him be the one to give me my breast augmentation and I’m so glad I did. He gave me recommendations that he thought would make me feel most comfortable and confident and he listened thoughtfully to what I wanted. I feel like everyone went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable and listened to. From the consult and pre-op and sedation experience to the day after check up, I knew I was in the best hands and I felt cared for. They thought of every little thing! The staff even contacted me during my first day after surgery to ensure I was doing well. If I ever give a cosmetic surgery recommendation to anyone, this will be the place. I am ecstatic and the service was WELL worth the trip. To fly from Beverly Hills, a center of plastic surgery, all the way to Oklahoma for this procedure should speak volumes as to how wonderful Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates is. Thank you Dr. Nuveen and staff!"



"This week I went to Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates for a consultation for breast augmentation and a full body lift.  I had been researching places to go and this was the one I kept going back to after lots of reviews, both online and word of mouth, were very positive! I walked in and was immediately greeted by the receptionist who was very polite and attentive. The waiting area was gorgeous and comforting.  I was taken back to the consult area by Jayme where we had a great conversation about what I had in mind, she was very open and honest with her answers to my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable.  Sonia came in next to measure and take photos, I have had 4 kids and modesty isn’t usually an issue, but my poor boobs...She was so sweet, explaining everything she was doing and why. Again, I felt so comfortable.  I rocked that photoshoot! Dr. Nuveen stopped in next and explained some more things about the procedures I was wanting and gave some advice on what he felt would be best, I loved that.  There’s that comfortable thing again, I felt it. next up, Dr. Caplin!  It’s like a literal ray of sunshine came in. She is the kindest person I think I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She knew exactly what I wanted and assured me it would all be great!  She told me a few fun facts about the facility and told me about her pups Max & Ruby who come to the office. How can I not choose this place for my procedures?  My deposit for the surgery date was paid today and in a little more than a month I’ll be doing the very first thing for me and I am more than pleased with my decision to use Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates. I am so excited!  Thank you so much to Jayme who has answered all of my silly questions at all hours."



"Three surgeries with Dr.Nuveen - I have had a face lift followed by a tummy tuck. Finally , last week a breast reduction and lift. I am 76. My husband and I are enjoying my new look. I feel so good about me. Dr. Nuveen has been so caring about me. The entire staff are delightful. I am so glad I made the choice of the surgeries but especially using Dr Nuveen. Thank you again for my new ME."
