    How was your appointment with Dr. Nuara?

    Dec 20, 2022
    It's been over a year since Dr. Nuara performed my surgery. I had a lower face lift and a laser skin treatment. Dr. Nuara made me feel so comfortable -- he was very informative about my choices and the results I could expect (I am in my 70s). The staff was also very supportive and the recovery was just as expected. I am so pleased I finally decided to get the surgery, because the results are amazing.
