I highly recommend Dr Nakra to anyone! He is very patient and happy to answer questions. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of the procedures he performed. My hairdresser saw me 4 weeks after the surgery and questioned whether I had it done or not . . . she said I looked well rested but not "done", and definitely not 'overdone'.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Nakra Very professional, but comfortable to talk with. The procedure he did on me was excellent and I knew exactly what to expect . Very happy with everything . .
Dr. Nakra was the fourth plastic surgeon I consulted with. He was the only one that said a facelift was not necessary, so we refreshed my face instead! Lower bleph to get rid of bags below eyes, full face laser resurfacing and fat transfer. No dramatic changes, but I look incredibly healthy and much, much more youthful. The laser resurfacing reduced the appearance of my pores and smoothed out my complexion. His lower bleph and fat transfer techniques made a huge difference.

Very professional. Listened to my needs and very supportive. I am so pleased with the improvement in my eyes not only cosmetically but this surgery has improved my ability to see without feeling the need to actually physically lift my eyelids up at times. Highly recommend Dr. Nakra.

I treated myself to a facelift. I'd paid college educations for my kids, paid off my house and was without debt. I looked tired and weary, in fact with the before surgery photos, I looked matronly without vitality. I took good care of my skin, I thought, but the effects after surgery are dramatic. I'm a licensed perioperative nurse (OR) and never thought I'd trust a surgeon with my face. I'm grateful for Dr Nakara's conservative approach with his goal for a natural look. Amazing work.

I am familiar with most procedures (Fillers, Botox, IPL, Ulthera, Chemical peels) along with a diligent at home skincare plan (20 years of Ca. sun damage to correct). Still, all of it did nothing to tighten my jaw line. Dr. Nakra's treatment plan included a full face fat transfer (taken from my lower abdomen) lower face lift and TCA chemical peel around my eyes. I couldn't be happier with the natural results and will continue to trust him with all my surgery needs going forward.
