While playing on a playground this summer, our 5-year old son was attacked by a dog and had much of his left ear severed. It was unprovoked and happened so fast – a parent’s worst nightmare. We were taken to the ER by ambulance where we were so lucky to be put into the amazing care of Dr. Nukta. Throughout numerous surgeries and office visits, Dr. Nukta and Jenn have provided us not only with the very best medical care, but with a level of caring and compassion that we have never experienced with any other medical provider. They have answered every question we have ever had, addressed all of our fears and concerns, and been available night and day for anything we needed. They have gone to tremendous lengths to help make the recovery as easy as possible for our son and always do special things to keep a smile on his face. This whole experience has not been easy for any of us, but a silver lining has been Dr. Nukta and Jenn. We will be forever grateful for them and all they have done, and continue to do, for us and their support of our resilient and amazing little guy.
I had wanted a nose job ever since I was old enough to notice others did not see me as I saw me. That was around puberty. I was skinny and tan with the nose of an Aztec Warrior. After high school, college, and finding my career I revisited this want I had which hadn’t gone away. After google stalking every plastic surgeon in the northern VA area, reading the good and bad reviews, looking through countless before/after photos, and crossing off almost every name on my list one surgeon’s impressive resume of surgical training and own personal experience with plastic surgery as a child stood out. I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Nukta at his Ashburn location in December. The office was easy to get to and his staff was very friendly. Dr. Nukta was professional and yet sincere in listening to why I wanted my nose fixed and what I wanted done. I was so pleased with the visit I scheduled my surgery and paid the deposit on the spot. The next visit was to go over the specifics of the rhinoplasty procedure, risks, worries, requests, and answering of any other questions. I had my surgery in February with minimal bruising. I have an aversion to blood and needles that they were very patient about during my follow up visits. They all have been just so caring and made my surgery experience very easy and comfortable. The first month I could not wait for the swelling to go down, and now that it has my results are beautiful.

After having two babies and achieving a 50lb weight loss all in a matter of 3 years i felt that some “fine tuning” was needed in order for me to feel great about myself again. I came to the NOVA Plastic Surgery office by accident when a friend of mine made a mistake in recommending what she thought was her doctor’s office and it turned out to be an amazing mistake as far as I am concerned. From the very first visit i felt super comfortable and ready. Dr. Nukta was the very first plastic surgeon I visited and i knew right away I didn’t need to look any further. I went in for a Mommy Makeover consultation which was to include an abdominoplasty and a breast augmentation. I initially considered a buttock lift, which Dr. Nukta advised me was not a necessary procedure (I was very impressed by that suggestion because it let me know he was not willing to do a procedure just to take my money if he did not feel it was something i needed).
Dr. Nukta is extremely knowledgeable and was very focused on making sure that I was aware of everything I was “signing up” for. From the very beginning he and his staff were always available to answer questions and extremely flexible in accommodating me when making appointments. Before and after surgery the attention I received was absolutely outstanding.
I am now 5 weeks post surgery and along with the professionalism and warm interaction I have received from the NOVA Plastic Surgery staff, Dr. Nukta’s work is absolutely spectacular. I could not be more happy with the results. I can truly say that I can now look in the mirror and be completely satisfied with what I see.
Ever since the surgery any time I sent an e-mail to Dr. Nukta’s office Jessica was extremely quick to answer to put my worries and or concerns at ease. It has been extremely comforting to know that they truly care about their patience. Even though I arrived at NOVA Plastic Surgery by mistake I would recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for an excellent plastic surgeon. From the professionalism of the staff to the outstanding results of the surgery I can truly say I had the best experience anyone could ever ask for. Thank you Dr. Nukta and Staff, for EVERYTHING!
COMPASSIONATE, PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE, DOWN TO EARTH
My fiancé and I were very happy with Dr. Nukta from the first time we met him. His caring staff especially Jessica allowed us to feel right at home. He explained the procedure in detail and I was very satisfied with his explanation of the tummy tuck and liposuction process. After interviewing other doctors for a second opinion, we did not feel the comfort level we experienced with Dr. Nukta.
We felt like we were next in line at the grocery store with them. Dr. Nutka and staff were very caring, understanding, and compassionate. Without further hesitation my fiancé and I decided to have him do my procedure. I was afraid but now very happy to do the procedure after 10 years of researching and talking about it. I’m super happy with my body and the results of the procedure. My fiancé can’t keep his hands off of me. I am most satisfied with all the great care I received from Dr. Nutka and his fantastic staff. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
Dr. Nutka you are the best.
Up until a couple of years ago, breast augmentation surgery was something I had never even considered. Even though my breasts were always small, I was quite happy with them and augmentation was just not something I thought was for me. However, after being pregnant with and nursing two children, at age 27 I finally decided to take that big step I had been considering for a couple of years.
It started when a good friend of mine shared with me that she had a surgery date scheduled for this procedure. At that moment, I thought, “I have been wanting this for a long time myself…” and began to do research. There are many great plastic surgeons in Philadelphia, and the surrounding counties, with excellent reputations. I met with a surgeon a few days later, and walking out of his office, I just did not feel comfortable. I felt I was being pushed and swayed in a direction that I did not want to go. From the very beginning I knew that I did not want a dramatic change. I simply wanted to gain back the volume that I had lost from gaining and losing weight, and nursing at the same time.
My friend, who was getting the same procedure, seemed very happy and very comfortable with her surgeon, so I asked her for his information. That is when I was referred to Dr. Fadi Nukta. From the moment I met him, I knew right away that I was in good hands! I am the type of person who still likes to shop around, but upon meeting with Dr. Nukta, I immediately scheduled my surgery! I felt very comfortable with him. He did not try to sway me in any direction, he knew exactly what I wanted and followed specific guidelines to ensure that the look I wanted would be achieved. The thing that made me most comfortable was him saying that we would not go into surgery until him and I were both on the same page. That made me feel very relieved.
The staff in the office was exceptionally nice! They were so kind and patient and provided fast answers to all of my questions and concerns. I had a lot of anxiety leading up to my surgery, and there were times when I contacted the staff several times a day! Again, they were always patient and very helpful. They were very accommodating as far as getting me into appointments so that travel could be cut down. This was very helpful because, with two kids, I don’t have many opportunities to travel. They made it very easy and convenient for me.
Before my surgery, I was very nervous and scared. I really appreciated Dr. Nukta’s positive mood when seeing me before surgery. It made me feel confident that he was confident. My surgery went very well, and very smoothly. I actually felt fine coming out of surgery! I was a little loopy and tired, but a couple hours later felt completely normal. When I finally saw my breasts after the surgery, I could not believe my eyes! I was told to expect them to look slightly off at first, and that with time they would get better. They looked great right away! They looked just like the photo I had brought in to my pre-op appointment!
Since my surgery, Dr. Nukta and his staff continue to be very helpful in answering any questions or concerns that I may have. I could not be happier with the surgeon that I chose. He achieved exactly what I had asked for, and I could not have imagined a better outcome! All my friends compliment me and tell me how natural they look and always say what a great job the surgeon did. I have been recommending Dr. Nukta to all of my friends, and I highly recommend him to anybody considering breast augmentation!
All my life I have been struggling with large breasts. It wasn’t until the past couple of years that I have had some serious problems because of their large size. I was having numerous migraines, back pain, and neck pain. That was when I decided to pursue information on breast reductions. My PCP informed me that I was a candidate. I was really putting my body in jeopardy with the extra weight my breasts were giving me. That was when I was introduced to Dr. Fadi Nukta. He was my savior!
The first time I walked into Dr. Nukta’s office I felt so nervous until his assistant and himself walked in. Instantly I felt at ease. He was so caring and sensitive to my needs and embarrassments. Dr. Nukta listened to all my concerns and wishes. He was so professional. I had my exam done and we talked about how the procedure was going to be and the outcomes. He also informed me of all the necessary things I needed to do before surgery so I would lower my risk of complications.
The day I walked into the hospital for my surgery, I was so nervous I could barely stand. He came over to me and reassured me that everything was going to be ok. I really believed that through the sincerity of his voice. I knew everything was going to be wonderful. And it was!!
After having my surgery, I would recommend this to everyone! Dr. Nukta not only made me feel confident again, he also made my pain (physically and emotionally) go away. He is amazing. I just had my six month post-op check up and couldn’t be happier. Dr. Nukta gave me a new outlook on my life. Thank you so much Dr. Nukta!
” [My wife] is doing great!!!! Thank you so much for giving us our life back. We are deeply indebted to you, and your procedure. Thank you again.”
I wanted to thank you for a very positive experience, re: carpal tunnel release surgery 11/19/10. You and the entire medical staff were friendly and pleasant, and I was amazed at how quick the whole experience was. I liked the fact that I had local rather than general anasthesia; I was very comfortable during and after surgery. I would highly recommend you to patients needing hand surgery, in fact, this is the most pleasant surgery I’ve had thus far!
“As a piano player all my life, facing hand surgery was a scary option for me. Would this impede my ability to play again? Dr. Nukta, eased my mind right from the beginning, offering several options. Later, after determining that basal arthroscopic surgery was what was needed, when I e-mailed him with several questions, he took the time to reply himself and provide thorough answers.
I found his very personable manner to be both professional and knowledgeable. Weeks after the surgery I went to the clinic for a cast appointment. Although I didn’t have an appointment with him, Dr. Nukta left his office to come and check on my progress personally. As I am closing in on the end of my therapy to regain mobility and strength I’ve no doubt that I’ll be making beautiful music with my hands once again! I would recommend Dr. Nukta to any of my family and friends!”
Thank you!!!!! Earlier this year I received what can only be called a miracle. All the tendons in my right hand were severed after a car accident in which my hand went through the windshield. I could not move three of my fingers….. particularly devistating as I play piano and guitar. Dr. Nukta surgically attached my tendons….. and all under a local anethetic as I was recovering from a concussion. By April I was playing a few notes and now I am back at full skill. You are amazing! Skilled, informative, nuturing and brilliant. Thank you to all at your practice….. I am deeply grateful.
I would like to thank Dr. Nukta and staff for their professionalism and kindness. In November I decided to have breast augmentation and was referred to their office by a close friend. The experience was positive throughout the entire process – from the consultation, procedure, recovery, and follow-up appointments. Their pre-surgery recommendations were honest and the information provided prepared me for the upcoming procedure. The outcome of the surgery was outstanding and resulted in the natural look I was hoping for. Dr. Nukta and staff were understanding and responsive to questions and concerns that arose after surgery during non-working hours and post-surgery appointments. In addition to this procedure, Dr. Nukta offered me a free trial procedure. The results of this procedure were also successful and outstanding. These experiences were a positive reflection of Dr. Nukta’s practice and I would highly recommend their services. Thank you Dr. Nukta and staff!!!
I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Nukta for a large port-wine stain birthmark on my arm and chest. I have been extremely impressed with the entire staff. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes from the time of entering the office to seeing Dr. Nukta, which is very important in today’s busy world. All of his staff, including Dr. Anderson, Jenn, and Christy have always made me feel comfortable and encourage the success I’ve seen with the treatments.
After having my birthmark for 34 years, I was unsure as to what type of progress I would see with the laser treatments. Dr. Nukta explained the pain and treatment afterwards thoroughly and I have not only felt very confident in his skills, but also at ease. Following the treatments, the staff has contacted me through either email or phone calls to ensure there have been no complications. After several trial sessions to assess how my skin would react and two full treatment sessions, the difference is remarkable and I look forward to continuing my treatments.
For those with port-wine stain birthmarks, I would highly recommend Dr. Nukta.
I loved my experience at NOVA Plastic Surgery and the HydraFacial I received. The staff was extremely courteous and professional and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. They explained exactly what they planned on doing and why. My skin looks absolutely amazing after the treatment. It is not as red, and smoother, my pores look smaller and it feels moisturized! I highly recommend this place!!
