"I had a breast reduction done with Dr. Caplin. This was the best experience I could’ve had! All of the staff at this facility are the kindest people! They made sure they discussed the entire procedure through and through and made sure to answer any questions I had no matter how big or small. I am so happy I went here for my procedure and feel like anywhere else wouldn’t have given me the same experience. Now my results … I was a 38I and went all the way down to a B! There was no better feeling than waking up the day of my procedure and looking at my chest!! I was crying the entire day from joy. I am now 1 week post op and they look AMAZINGGGGGGG!!! I couldn’t be happier !! They are an amazing group of people and skilled at their job! 20/10 would recommend!!"- A.W. / Google / Aug 19, 2023
"I had a great experience! I came for a facial and had an appointment with Micah. I got there early and instead of waiting for my scheduled time they saw me right away! They were very thorough in getting to know my skin type and needs. I have very sensitive skin, so thats important to me. Also the atmosphere was very relaxing. The esthetician was friendly and made me feel comfortable. But she didn't talk the whole time, so I was able to relax which I appreciated. I would recommend this place, and especially micah, to anyone looking for a rejuvenating facial! My skin is still glowing from it!"- E.H. / Google / Aug 16, 2023
"Amazing!!! The facial by Micah was one of the best I’ve ever had. Lauren was so knowledgeable and professional and I love my Botox. I’ll definitely be back soon!"- S.C. / Google / Aug 01, 2023
GENDER REAFFIRMATION SURGERIES
The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) is a nonprofit organization centered around the educational, professional, and interdisciplinary areas of transgender health. The goal of the WPATH is to inform the public about the importance of respecting and advocating for the needs of transgender and gender-nonconforming people throughout the globe. The WPATH has published a "Standards of Care and Ethical Guidelines" detailing the ways to effectively care for the mental, health, and surgical requirements of transgender patients so that professionals, like Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin, can properly provide help to individuals in the process of transitioning.

Gender Reaffirmation FAQ
Will my medical insurance cover gender reaffirmation surgery?
Yes. It is legally required for insurance providers to cover gender reaffirmation surgery for patients suffering from gender dysphoria. This makes it as easy as possible for transgender patients to receive the care they need to help them look and feel more like themself.
How much does gender reaffirmation surgery cost?
The overall cost of gender reaffirmation surgery will vary from one patient to another depending on the type and number of procedures being performed. During your consultation, our staff will listen to your questions and concerns before creating a custom treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with a detailed cost estimate for the procedure.
How old do I have to be to undergo gender reaffirmation surgery?
Typically, we recommend for patients to wait until they are at least 18 years old before receiving the surgery in order to allow their body to fully develop. This also grants some additional time to consider the procedure as the results are permanent and cannot be reversed. Patients under the age of 18 can receive gender affirmation surgery with the consent of their parent or guardian.
