"Dr Cuzalina gave me a perfect pair of boobs after another surgeon here in Tulsa butchered me. His staff is great! He really cares about what I thought and how I felt! I love Dr. C!"
"I've been coming to Tulsa Surgical Arts for years for my Botox and juvederm. Everyone from the front staff, nurses to the doctors have always been great! I have never been disappointed in any visit here. Without a doubt - when I am ready for surgery I will come here! Years later still doing all my botox and filler here. He has great nurse injectors too!"
"My significant other and I have both had surgical procedures done at Tulsa Surgical Arts by Dr. Cuzalina. As a surgeon I am extremely biased and critical of any other surgeons work and would never have another surgeon operate on my family without a clear understanding of his ability and work. Dr. Cuzalina is not just a cosmetic surgeon, he is a gifted individual with the rare talent. His ability to manipulate tissue and reshape to what the patient's desire - is remarkable! Both my significant other and I are extremely pleased with our surgical results and highly recommend him to our friends. The office staff is professional and motivated to get the job done. Being one of the busiest practices in the country you have to listen carefully to instructions and read the material that they provide for you inorder to have the best outcomes. If you live any where in in the midwest you are blessed to have a surgeon who cares and is amazing at what he does."
