About Our Practice

At Southern Surgical Arts, we aim to positively impact patients’ lives through natural-looking enhancements that leave casual acquaintances wondering what’s different.

When you are happy with your appearance, you feel better about yourself and your life. Our surgeons have refined artistic skills, extensive experience and the latest training to provide the results that meet your goals.

Approach

Transforming the body through cosmetic surgery requires careful listening, practiced skill, a meticulous commitment to safety, and an anatomical examination of the area you want enhanced. Dr. Deal, Dr. Gardner, Dr. Gusching, and Dr. Kluska listen carefully to what you need, making sure that they understand your goals, and recommending a procedure that will help you accomplish that goal.

Experience

Dr. Deal, Dr. Gardner, Dr. Gusching, and Dr. Kluska are fellowship-trained and Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeons. Combined, our four doctors have more than 23 years experience. Their practice at Southern Surgical Arts is 100% committed, focused, and dedicated to cosmetic and facial plastic surgery. Since 2004, they have performed more than 18,000 major cosmetic procedures.

 

Transparency

At Southern Surgical Arts, we tell you everything up front, leaving nothing out. You’ll get nothing but the fullest explanation of the procedure, a full disclosure of where and how it would occur, and what to expect in terms of results and recovery time. We will never give you unrealistic promises, and will always disclose what you can expect from your procedure.

Cost

Our total costs are all-inclusive, covering all internal cost (anesthesia, operating room fees, and surgeon’s fees), as well as routine follow-up visits. There are no hidden or undisclosed fees. Our staff will let you know if there will be additional charges, which usually consists of prescriptions, labs and additional garments.
