I can’t thank Dr. Cluett enough. I had a big weight loss of over one hundred pounds leaving a lot of excess skin. Dr. Cluett performed a breast lift, full tummy tuck and brachioplasty on both arms. She did an amazing job and I will hold her dearly in my heart forever. She has a big heart, great personality and is very caring. She has changed my life . Thank you Dr. Cluett.
I had a skin cancer removed from my face by Dr. Cluett. Her amazing skills made the whole experience so much less stressful and relatively painless than I expected. The outcome was a slight scar much smaller than expected. I am thankful she was the plastic surgeon to do the procedure. Thank you Dr. Cluett and her team.
I had surgery with Dr Cluett in Mae h 2019. I must say she was fantastic. My outcome was amazing. She’s easy to talk too,She is very honest with her opinion of what your body needs or what would be best for you. I plan to see her again and have another procedure done with her. Only complaint is it’s hard to get a hold of them at times but calls are always returned. Brandi her office manager is utteriy amazing as well. She’s si sweet and kind and open to you asking questions. Best Dr in Newfoundland and I’d dare to say all of Canada.
