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


I did not get the result from my procedure that I wanted.

Eyelid Surgery

Friendly staff explained procedure. Dr. Nease is very nice and explained procedures and answered my questions.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr Nease is always so kind. He listens to his patient. His work is always above any expectation you could hope for. His honesty in what to expect and outcome in each procedure is appreciated. He is a "Master" in his profession.


The professional treatment, the knowledge, the office ambiance, all in all excellent.

Entire staff including Dr. Neese was professional, friendly and informative. I felt confident that I had made the right decision after scheduling my procedure. I have already recommended that friends consult Dr. Neese for their needs.

Breast Implant Revision

I love all the Doctors and Staff everyone is very sweet and helpful

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Had Botox on my eyebrows. I liked the natural looking results. Very poor parking space. Had to park across the street. I have been to this location twice and had the same problem finding parking.

Eyelid Surgery

My facelift and neck lift procedures were underachieved, and I need additional costly procedures to improve the appearance of the surgeries. I still have fatty deposits underneath my eyes, but my left eye is worse than my right, and there is less lid on my right eye than on my left. It looks very imbalanced. I still have crows feet. I had scarring From a laser, that was not improved, but I was given laser procedure following my surgeries, but I was charged $1500 for something that should have been included. On a later follow up visit, Dr. niece put a small amount of Botox in my neck because it is still Not acceptable. I was also charged for that, and my neck does not look any better than before surgery.

Breast Augmentation

The experience from the initial consult, through the surgery, and to the follow up post surgery visits have been way above par. Most importantly I am beyond pleased with the outcome of my surgery! I have and will continue to encourage anyone considering a similar procedure to see Dr. Nease. I loved the convenience of the office/surgerical center.

Eyelid Surgery

I rated it as satisfied. Highly satisfied would imply that it was the best ever. Everyone at the office is great to work with, they treat you with respect and know you by name

PRP Rejuvenation

Although I'm still healing, he was ckear & upfront about the h asking process and time it will take to see complete results. Dr Nease was /is very knowledgeable and clearly understood what I was looking for. Perfect bedside mannerz as well as the staff.,

Face Lift

I was completely at ease with my surgery because the SSA team had prepared me so well. They took great care of me. . Each member of the SSA team gives 100% to meet the needs of the patients.
