"I highly recommend CSA, as the team at CSA is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My first appointment was back in February and I have been with them since! They offer so much and have really changed my life in how I see and view myself. They are very uplifting, encouraging and most importantly in todays world, KIND and RESPONSIVE. Dr. Caplin and Dr. Nuveen are both excellent to work with. Dr. Nuveen held my first consultation and the experience was warm and he was understanding and saw my vision. Dr. Caplin with her surgical team performed both of my surgeries thus far without any complications and she is very thorough in her work. Her team for recovery was kind and helpful as well. Nathania is fantastic with helping you get setup for what you need among many things-she’s a jack of all trades in my opinion. The whole staff really including Lauren, Micah and Caitlyn are just wonderful. Lauren is a fantastic nurse who is always helpful and smiley and warms the room so your not anxious and you can feel comfortable speaking with her, Micah gives the best facials I have ever had and Caitlyn is your greeting smile with you walk into the office setting the tone for the experience you will receive. If you haven’t found your “place” yet for these type of services they offer, then truly look no more and give them a call. You will not be dissatisfied by any means!"



"Dr. Nuveen and his staff are absolutely amazing ! I would highly recommend them to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. 5 - stars is not enough to describe how pleased I was with every aspect of my experience with them !"



"My experience with CSA was great, starting with my first phone conversation with Nathania. Nathania was so helpful and helped ease any fears or concerns I had leading up to surgery. Everyone I have met at CSA has made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision. When I started looking into cosmetic surgery I scheduled several consultations. My first consultation was with Dr. Caplin, and after I met her I canceled the others. From the minute I met her I knew she was the right surgeon. The day of surgery I met Dr. Nuveen and he was a just as great. On my way into surgery I knew I was in good hands and my results have truly been life changing. I cannot thank you all enough!"



"If you’re looking for a plastic surgeon…you’ve found one. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplan are amazing and they care about their patients. I got exactly what I asked for and they listened to me!!! The whole staff is great as well. I have never felt more safe and comfortable with a surgeon than Dr. Nuveen. I’m forever grateful to the CSA team."



"Best experience hands down. From trying to figure out what procedures I wanted to do with Nathania to meeting both Dr Caplin and Dr Nuveen the day of the procedures and putting nerves at ease."
