Chad Deal, MD Chattanooga , TN

Breast Augmentation

The staff is very professional. Dr. Deal isn’t just an order taker - it is obvious that he takes pride in his work and has a vision for each patient. I love my body. It’s been a longtime since I could say that - after two kids and almost 6 years of breastfeeding, I didn’t think it would be possible.

Mommy Makeover

Everyone that I interacted with at SSA was exceptionally nice and knowledgeable. The office and surgery suites are beautiful and comfortable. And my results are amazing! After having kids, I had a wide diastasis and sagging skin on my tummy. I never imagined having a flat tummy again. Dr. Deal gave me what diet and exercise couldn’t. It feels so good to have my confidence back! My clothes fit better, and I feel so much more confident! I took my daughter to a school event recently and did the cha cha slide with her on the dance floor. Before my tummy tuck, I would have been too self-conscious for that! I am looking forward to rocking a bikini this summer!

Breast Augmentation

I don't feel like enough time was given during the initial consultation listening to what results I desired for my breast augmentation and my rhinoplasty, both. It felt rushed, as if not a lot of consideration was given to ensure the surgeon's ideas were in line with mine.

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

Liposuction

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!

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

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.

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

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!

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

Vincent Gardner, MD Chattanooga , TN

Tummy Tuck

Everyone was kind and welcoming. I felt a sense of confidence in their competence. I am very happy with the results.

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

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

Chad Deal, MD Chattanooga , TN

Liposuction

I wanted a natural approach to what I wanted done. I'm natural Minded and he respected that. He understood my wants and needs, the whole staff came together and made it happen. [Single best thing is...] Lifted breast

Halo Hybrid Fractional Resurfacing

My skin is much improved. The final result was much improved, however, wasn't as effective as I had hoped.

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

FaceTite

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

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

Eyelid Surgery

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

Chad Deal, MD Chattanooga , TN

Tummy Tuck

I am still so shocked when I look in the mirror or try on clothes at how much better I look and feel after my tummy tuck with liposuction. Dr. Deal is amazing!

Laser Hair Removal

I am in the process of having brazillian laser hair removal which can be very uncomfortable and quite intimidating. However, the staff and especially Felicia are wonderful about making the atmosphere as feel completely inviting.

Carey Nease, MD Chattanooga , TN

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.

Justin Gusching, DO Chattanooga , TN

BOTOX® Cosmetic

I was highly satisfied. I love this place. The whole experience and environment.

Chad Deal, MD Chattanooga , TN

Breast Augmentation

Dr deal is great he is one of the best doctor I have ever meet and also his staff is awesome I love him and the office people make u feel so welcomed and he is the best It made me feel so confident and I will be doing a lot more to myself just because I fell great

Laser Resurfacing

Skin is firmer. I guess my skin was just lowered to you replenish itself... So it's probably nothing that could've been prevented. I also still have one dark spot on the side of my face that I thought would be gone as well- but maybe it takes multiple treatments,
