Mommy Makeover

I was comfortable the whole time. Everyone made me feel like I was the number one priority. [Single best thing is...] The way my body was transformed!

Breast Implant Revision

I have been a patient of Dr. Nease (Southern Surgical Arts) since 2012. The highly professional staff of medical professionals as well as friendly, knowledgeable patient coordinators are reasons I continue to use and recommend SSA. Dr. Nease instantly puts his patients at ease. He knows who I am and asks questions about the specific outcome I desire. He takes time to answer all of my questions and makes my experience personal and comfortable.

Eyelid Surgery

My eyelid surgery was so beneficial. I am able to see better as well as look better. The scars have healed up wonderfully. I am able to see better since my eyelid doesn’t press on my lashes.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I trust Dr. Nease, and all the physicians at SSA. That is important to me. [Single best thing is...] Careful care that I received.


Dr. Nease and his staff was overly friendly and welcoming. They made me feel right at home and like I had known them forever. I was excited to go back for my visits following surgery to see everyone. I was also thrilled with the way my procedure turned out. I was nervous about anesthesia, but everyone was so helpful and reassuring and calmed my nerves. I felt cared for and overall it was a wonderful experience. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Nease and his staff being so understanding and helpful throughout the experience.


Dr. Nease has the best bedside manners, he always greets you with a smile and hug, his work is meticulous, the entire staff are awesome. I would never change plastic surgeons. I am a very happy customer. I have Bells Palsy and the work that Dr. Nease done on my face has built my confidence again, I am so very happy and grateful.

Eyelid Surgery

They were very professional and did not make me feel uncomfortable. The surgeon was able to explain the procedure in a way I could understand. All questions were answered.

Breast Implant Revision

This place is amazing. I couldn’t ask for any better service.

Lip Enhancement

I called and they were able to get me in on such a short notice. I showed them 2 pictures one of what I liked and one that I did not want to look like. Dr. Nease was super friendly as always and gave me exactly what I asked for. Nice full lips without looking like I had too much! They are perfect!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I felt like I was the only one there. They took me back immediately. Dr. Nease was gracious and helpful as always. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Nease caring attitude and his expertise!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Length of appointment was quick and short wait time.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

It's wonderful! I've gone to Dr. Nease 2 times for Botox it's amazing and I've never been more thrilled! He totally leveled out my eyebrows just like I wanted!!! He's the best and I'll Be back to see him at the end of the month!! (:

BOTOX® Cosmetic

We were seen immediately and Dr. Nease was nice and it did not take very much time.


Dr Nease is extremely professional and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure. He is an expert and communicates clearly and understandably. My results are awesome! I am finally able to feel comfortable in my clothes and my own skin!

Fractional Laser Resurfacing

The entire staff was friendly, professional and caring. Dr Nease listened to my concerns and spent quality time with me. I am so very happy with the outcome of my procedure and would confidential recommend the entire experience at SSA to others.

Breast Augmentation

I have a completely new view of myself and have gained self-confidence with the appearance of my body! When I went in for my initial consultation, I was very specific and explained to Dr. Nease what I wanted. He listened and was very realistic when explaining the outcomes that I could expect. Dr. Nease, along with all of the other staff, are very sweet and respectful. I never felt out of place or like I was bothering anyone with my hundreds of questions. Before the procedure, I had breasts that were very much asymmetrical, two totally different breasts. Now, my breasts are perfect. During my consultation, they explained that sometimes that can't be fixed 100% and there may be a chance of still having one side slightly larger than the other. When I look in the mirror, I cannot see any difference in size or shape of both breasts. They are absolutely beautiful. He did an AMAZING job! I do have one pocket of tissue that formed under one areola. I expressed my concern to Dr. Nease. We are currently waiting for all stitches to finally dissolve and for complete healing, as he explained that this could go away as everything settles. If not, we will discuss how to proceed, if I decide to have that removed later on. He is very willing to help and eager to ensure that I am fully satisfied with the overall outcome of the procedure. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Nease and Southern Surgical Arts!

Eyelid Surgery

Being my first procedure at 62 years old I was made at ease and given several procedure choices. Left with the next step of instruction to follow and to get the test need to start. I am waiting for my yearly exam with my primary Dr. which will be Dec 5th 2018 then will be ready to schedule around the 2nd or 3rd of January 2019.

Fat Transfer

I hated looking at my eyes. I was always told they were my best quality but were covered by bags and puffyness. I alwaysed looked tired, and older than I am because of it. I was very self conscious. Now I look awake, younger, and more confident. . Dr Nease and his staff were completely knowledgeable about my medical history and explained recovery, ie bruising site will take longer to heal, etc. So knowing that prior to surgery helped a lot. Knowing something wasn’t wrong. He also explained what I needed to do to get rid of the discoloring from the pigment lost from the bruising. Very knowledgeable

Eyelid Surgery

Love Dr Neese. He is so attentive. . Always great experience at this location

Tummy Tuck

The staff was very kind and professional. Everything was explained to me. When I called with a post-op problem, they saw me immediately. I like the way I look and feel after the surgery. No regrets
