Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Was Always the Goal
Few eight-year-olds realistically know what they want to be when they grow up, and even less have the perseverance and drive to make that dream a reality. Fortunately for Dr. Nukta, this was not the case.
It was at the young age of eight that Dr. Nukta learned firsthand the immense physical and psychological benefits that plastic surgery has to offer.
As a child, Dr. Nukta underwent cosmetic ear pinning surgery, also known as otoplasty. This early introduction to the world of plastic surgery would shape his life’s work and inspire him to become the surgeon he is today.
After completing nine years of rigorous surgical training at some of the country’s most prestigious hospitals and medical institutions, he moved to Virginia and founded NOVA Plastic Surgery and Dermatology.
Today, when not in the operating room, Dr. Nukta enjoys spending time with his five kids, traveling, staying healthy with pilates, and walking his German Shepherd, Rocky.
Mixing Science With Advanced Research
Dr. Nukta has always been inspired by a high level of service, regardless of the industry. It is this concept that Dr. Nukta wanted to instill in his practice.
He wanted NOVA Plastic Surgery to be a place where his patients knew the staff was interested in and dedicated to what they were doing. However, this was just a piece of the puzzle. In addition, Dr. Nukta wanted an atmosphere that blended luxury with a high level of scientific evidence.
That is why every technique, technology, and piece of equipment used at NOVA Plastic Surgery is backed by science and updated to reflect the most advanced research possible.
There is never an end goal with Dr. Nukta. He continues to be committed to furthering his plastic surgery education by studying and learning new techniques. This unwavering drive has helped Dr. Nukta become an expert in up-to-date aesthetic and cosmetic plastic surgery.
Upfront and Honest, Dr. Nukta Knows Himself and His Patients
In fact, every month, only 12 percent of the patients that NOVA sees are new clients. The rest are returning. This statistic demonstrates the trust NOVA’s patients have in Dr. Nukta and his team.
A big part of that trust comes from honesty and a genuine desire to help. Dr. Nukta takes the time to get to know all of his patients to truly understand what they are hoping to achieve. As a plastic surgery recipient himself, Dr. Nukta empathizes with his patients and their insecurities. If someone has something they don’t like about themselves, whether it is their ears or small breasts, he wants to fix it.
At the same time, Dr. Nukta has no problem telling patients that they are either not candidates for surgery or that he is not the right one to perform what they want. Dr. Nukta believes in delivering safe and natural-looking results above all else, which begins by listening and getting to know his patients.
