He did my nose. It's beautiful and just as nature intended it to be now. I am very happy and will return to Dr Ness for all future procedures. Very knowledgeable and professional.

Dr. Ness is an amazing artist of facial and body contouring whether it be cleft/lip reconstruction or a cosmetic refining procedure. He is triple Board Certified which that alone would be the reason I refer my frinds to him for a consultation. LouAnn
