He is very knowledgeable, down to earth, answers questions, called to check up on me at 9 at night the day of surgery. I honestly couldn't ask for a better doctor.

I had a follow-up with Dr. Novia the day after the surgery, he unwrapped me took a look and said it looked great and put on my Bra and sent me on my way I have another follow-up appointment on Monday which will be a week and a half after the procedure so I'm looking forward to seeing him so I can ask the questions that I need to ask to set my mind at ease. I had my visit with Dr. Novia, he said everything is right where it needs to be if not better and everything looks great. so I'm super excited so happy with the results and healing very very fast. He is such an awesome awesome plastic surgeon great person I'm just so happy that he did my surgery and everything turned out as great as it did.

DR. Novia, and his staff, are amazing! They took the time to answer all my questions... and I had a lot :) He called my husband the night of my surgery to make sure I was doing ok. I would refer him to all of my friends.

I had a breast reduction surgery done by Dr.Novia of Olympia, WA, in August of this year and could not be any happier with the INCREDIBLE results than I am. I feel very athletic and my self confidence has sky rocketed!!! His office staff and he himself are very easy to deal with, wonderful to talk to, incredibly helpful and dependable. My husband and I could tell that he loves his job. I had done YEARS of homework and having this surgery was a very big decision for me. The looks I now have are wonderful. My friends can not believe this could have been done, seeing the before and afters. As I followed close instructions by Dr.Novia regarding pain medications, this entire procedure of a breast reduction was completely painless. I would be glad to speak to anyone who is considering breast reduction surgery. Dr. Novia is a very likeable man and easy to talk to. He has a wonderful reputation in town and works with two known cancer doctors in his office. He has a reputation of being very concise and it proved to be accurate.

1 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Mother of 2 Breastfed Kids, 5'8, 125lbs, 34 AA to 395cc Mentor MemoryShape; Highly Cohesive Gel, Teardrop Shape, Gummy Bears.
As I can say that his practice is very professional and he is very kind and attentive in the beginning , I can't say I got the result that I wanted. I had high hopes after losing all my breast volume from breast feeding, that I will be able to feel normal again after my breast augmentation. Everything went great before the sugery. Dr. Novia and his staff answered all my questions and took great care of me. Post op I started noticing lumps underneath my breast. I was concerned it was a double bubble, but the Dr expressed that I should stay away from the Internet and its clouding my head and that it will go away on its own eventually and get better. It never did and after all the swelling subsided it was more prominent. Also i had started seeing rippling on the inside and outside of my breasts. Tell me why would I spend all the extra cash to get gummy bear implants when they are proven to reduce rippling all together. I didn't mention my disappointment in the scheduled post op meetings because I felt like I was giving the impression that I was over reacting. Until my last three appointments, I said something about the fact that the lines were still there and that now that I'm working out that they are starting to window shade. Which is when I flex all my muscles go up and it just looks absolutley disfigured and out of this world. And without not really inspecting or looking at my breast, he brushed it off and said, "I have nothing to worry about". I then made him watch me as I constricted my muscles to show him how bad the window shading was and he said pretty much stated that there was nothing he could do. That my results were amazing and that he doesn't think they needed to be fixed. You can't believe how dissapointed that made me feel after every appointment we have had he said that the problems I had with my augmentation was going to go away. I asked him if I would be considered for a revision and he said, "I don't think you need it, I think your results are perfect." I could tell he was very aggravated because I wasn't falling for his nice way of trying to down play what my issues were. He was trying really hard to find other ways to tell me I was wrong and I shouldn't listen to what the Internet says. He then told me that I should get a second opinion, so I did. I had gotten a couple of opinions and every Dr that I went to see, told me that I was pretty much correct with my assumptions and that I do have a double bubble deformity/window shading due to over dissection and that it is fixable with surgery, but of course expensive. The rippling I have is due to the fact that my implants are to big for me. Let me say, yes, I understand I ultimately chose the size, but Dr.N suggested them. I even had called in and had an extra fitting because I was not comfortable with the idea that they were so big because I am a very skinny girl and made that appt to go one size smaller. He told me I had nothing to worry about and convinced me to keep them and that we would have to postpone the surgery if I'd choosen a different size and as we walked out he said he had already ordered the size that we originally talked about and made a big deal about that is why he was glad I stayed with them. At the very last appointment that we had, the minute that I even had mentioned revision to Dr. Novia, he completely tried to deny that he messed up and then quoted, "why would you want to pay "another doctor" $10,000 to have them fixed when they look fine?" Which made me feel so suspicious of the fact that he even took himself out of the responsibility of fixing his mistake. It's been over 6 months now and he has not tried to contact me or asked me to schedule a follow up like they supposed to. Don't fall for his professional compassionate front. Because I can tell you now that it was charade to get a customer. Once he finds out your unsattisisfied don't expect him to contact and or help you. Let's just say I am completely dissatisfied and disappointed. My advice to you is, please please, please do your research and go with the best doctor possible. It is so worth the cost if you don't have to pay for a revision later or the fact that you will get a reputable Dr that will want to do the revision for you to make you happy. Please check for my updates soon. I will eventually post pictures of my results from his surgery.

Dr. Novia Changed my life. He knew there was more going on with me than Large breasts. He referred me to another physician and I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Through exercise and diet, I got healthy and lost weight. Dr. Novia was very supportive through the entire process and I was able to have breast reduction surgery. Dr. Novia cares about you as a human being, not about making money doing surgeries. His work is phenomenal, I am healthy and I feel and look great. I will forever be grateful to this wonderful Doctor, Man, caring human being for changing my life, for saving my life and for making me beautiful. I will refer everyone I know to this wonderful Doctor. The nurses that prepped me for surgery said, " he is the best". They weren't kidding, he truly is...... THANK YOU, DR. MICHAEL V. NOVIA you are amazing. H.Beattie Olympia Wa
