5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Seromas and Hematomas Removed with Dr. Petrosky and Dr. Staggers!

I am four weeks post op, Bad NEWS..I have been to 3 doctors here in Pensacola and no one will drain my seroma. My primary care said they were too big or else he would have done it, I went to see a general surgeon and he refused, then I went to another PS here and he wanted to charge me 3K. I ended up calling Dr. Robles and sending pictures and needless to say I will be going back to the DR in...

Upper Bleph - Atlanta, GA

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....

Excellent Results. Could Have Been Happier. - Marietta, GA

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...

41 Year Old Mom. Mini TT, Lipo & Fillers - Atlanta, GA

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...

Has Anyone on Here Had a Facelift by Michael Petrosky MD? - Marietta, GA

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...

Rhinoplasty - Marietta, GA

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...

1 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Bad Breast Reconstruction - Marietta, GA

I had terrible results from my breast reconstruction By Dr. Petrosky. He convinced me to have silicone implant when I had intended to have saline initially. i have bad breast shape and scars after the procedure. Implant is leaking. Would not recommend Petrosky to friends or my niece who had mastectomy. Can't afford to repair the mess I have for breasts. Haven't dated for years as result.

Personal Statement

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.
