We are located in the heart of Sugar Land. I’m board certified by the American Board of plastic surgery and that is the only recognized entity governing plastic surgeons. When you go see a plastic surgeon – that’s what you look for .. are they board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I’m also board certified by the American Board of Surgery and that relates to my general surgery training prior to being a plastic surgeon. In my opinion that’s important because it gives you the background and the basics of how to be a good surgeon. The surgeon’s staff is a very important component of his or her practice and it’s true for me. My staff is comprised of very motivated individuals who collectively have one goal in mind and that is to take great care of our patients, to deliver high-quality care, in a very safe and supportive environment. They are an extension of what I believe a plastic surgeon should be. I’m very proud of our facility. We built this from the ground up. As a young practice I knew what we wanted to do – we wanted to create an environment where we can control your entire experience from the consultation to your preoperative care to your surgery and your postoperative care. We built this practice from the ground up here in Sugar Land and with our clinic design by myself and our design team to meet the needs of our particular patient clientele. It is high-end, it is well conceived and we clearly cut no corners and most patients who come here they are wowed by what they see and I’m real proud of that. On the surgery side Lake Pointe Surgery Center is an ambulatory surgical center. It is licensed by the state, and we did not cut any corners on that side as well. It is not simply in office suite where you do surgery. It is a hospital like facility where every piece of equipment is the same piece of equipment you would find in a hospital. We have our anesthesia team, all of our nursing staff, everyone that works on that side is board certified by the respective entities. I think it’s a really nice environment to have your cosmetic surgery. The combination of the surgeons experience and training, the staff and our facility together as a whole when you look at it together it makes us very unique. ” Dr John Nguyen"

Katy, TX |
My wife had a tummy tuck from him in September 2017. Her stomach was still swollen and hard 2 months later. He told her that she must have hit it in something to have old blood built up in her stomach. He checked it out and said she must have hit it on something. She never ran into anything or hit her stomach on anything. He sent her on her way and now her stomach is swollen again and feels like it did before they drained it a week ago. Do not go to this “Dr.”
