5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Petrosky is a wonderful PS, when I arrived for help it did not matter to him where I had my procedure done, all he was concerned about was my present state of health. Within 10-15 minutes of accessing me, Dr. Petrosky was draining the seromas and hematomas that I had. I felt so much better that I finally met a doctor that was actually interested in fixing the solution instead of taking advantage of the situation. Not only is this doctor honest but he also educated me on what needed to be done after I was drained. The doctors’ office also offers a variety of services such as lymphatic massages and I asked if he thought I should get the massage and his answer was no that I should keep on my compression garment and come back in a week (like I said honest). Finding Dr. Petrocky and staff at the Plastic Surgery Center have been a blessing to me…
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I went to a reputable Atlanta plastics surgeon and consulted for upper eye lift and neck/ chin liposuction. He bundled the procedures and gave me a great deal, upper eyes were 1400. I drove to and from the surgery. Everything was done with local anesthesia. He did my eyes first. i think he injected the area locally with lidocaine. It was kinda scary having a needle that close to my eyes....
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
The office staff was very helpful, professional and friendly as was Dr Petrosky. I was referred to him via a friend/co-worker who had her implants done by him was thrilled by the results. I mainly wanted to even out my figure and most people are surprised if I tell them I've had it done. This doctor goes for natural results. I also had a rhinoplasty and U/L bleph in spring 2002 and am still...
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
I have been wanting to get a 'Mommy Makeover' for years. I admit that I've let myself go, but am now a gym rat and dedicated to getting in better shape. However, even when I've been slimmed down to my old high school weight I still have some extra belly skin and love handles (never had them before my pregnancy). So I know that will not go away with just diet and exercise. I've been working out...
I am freaking out right now to the point that I want to reschedule or even cancel my surgery. I really like this Dr. I have met with him twice but I am an idiot and did not even ask to see before and after pics. I think he will do a good job but there are some bad reviews on the web for him and now I don't know what to think. There are good reviews too but not that many like some other...

I had rhinoplasty with Dr. Petroski and I wasn't pleased with my results. I had bad scarring and a underprojected tip. He agreed but didn't offer a revision. As for my scarring along my alar base he offered to "try" to fix it for another $1000.00 but wasn't certain he could. Never have they tried to follow up and assist me. I paid around $7000.00 and received poor service. Staff is nice but he doesn't care whether his patients are satisfied or not!
1 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
Would not recommend Dr. Petrosky . I was a national commercial actress in my twenties and thirties . Now I won't even date due to disfiguration of results of bad reconstruction after breast cancer.
I believe attributes that makes a doctor successful is giving patients the results they way. So many surgeons do the same thing over and over and don't individualize. My primary goal is to make them feel comfortable with their decision and make them feel better about themselves.
