"I had bellafill done a few months ago and I absolutely love it. The staff at CSA are so skilled and knowledgeable that I walked out looking and feeling vibrant but not as if I had actual "work done". It looks so natural ! I would highly recommend CSA! Here is a photo of me right after the procedure. I experienced no downtime. Thank you CSA!!"- A.P. / Google / Dec 07, 2023
"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!"- J.M. / Google / Dec 07, 2023
"I highly recommend Dr. Caplin and her team!!!! I went in for a breast implant removal consultation. I was a little fearful, of what the procedure entailed, and the residual aftereffects from the surgery. Dr. Caplin did an excellent job explaining my options. The surgery went incredibly well. I literally only had one day, where I needed post op pain meds. I could not be happier with the results. They far exceeded my expectations!! She is an extremely talented surgeon (a true artist)! A++++++"- I.S. / Google / Dec 02, 2023

"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!"- B.S. / Google / Oct 19, 2023

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.
