5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Revision of Breast Lift, Small Reduction on Right Breast, and Lipo

Dr. Polynice is an awesome surgeon. He is both talented as a doctor, but with the sometimes hard to find among doctors- personality that makes you super at ease...he has a super friendly, caring bedside manner, and I was immediately confident in his ability to sculpt my body and give me the after care and follow up that is needed. My husband also immediately liked him and we will both always go back to him if we need any surgeries. We also were impressed with every staff member we encounter at the Williams Center, from the people at the desk, the nurses, the financial coordinator, etc...We always recommend this place from now on.

33 Years Old - Mini TT with Lipo - Virgin Islands

Living in the Caribbean has its ups and downs but one constant is the beautiful water that entices all and provides ample opportunities for beach days, boat trips, and (you guessed it) bathing suits. After my first daughter, I compulsively exercised until I was in better shape than I was pre-pregnancy. With my second daughter, however, I didn't have the same time to devote to exercise and when...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

43yr Old, Breast Lift W/375cc Moderate

Dr. Polynice is by far the most talented plastic surgeon out there. He is friendly, caring and makes you feel at ease right away. His work is top notch and could not imagine a better result with any other doctor. As soon as I met him and his staff, I knew he was the one. Even my husband felt so comfortable expressing his concerns prior to the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Polynice 100 times over!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

31 Years Old, Breast Augmentation - Latham, NY

I absolutely love my experience at the William's Center in Latham! From my first call their level of professionalism and knowledge across the board was different from other offices I had called looking for breast augmentation surgery. I spoke to the front desk explaining that I had another appointment set up for my surgery in Albany at Dr. Deluca's office but I had heard about them and was...

55 Year Old with Post-menopausal Belly Fat, Love Handles, and Loose Skin - Latham, NY

Dr. Polynice was amazing! Not only did I get a beautiful result but he was also very gentle and respectful throughout the process. The Williams Center is a beautiful and clean facility and the nursing staff is warm and kind. I felt very well taken care of. I would highly recommend Dr. Polynice for cosmetic surgery! He is truly an artist!

55 Years Old, Full Tummy Tuck (W/o Muscle Repair) and Lipo. Latham, NY

I'm 5' 1", weight 150 pounds, and had three kids. I initially went in to the Doc to get a consult for Cool Sculping, next thing I know we were talking about a TT and lipo! He said I would get better results with a TT because of "excess skin".... Never in a million years did I think about getting this surgery. I came home told my husband about what my visit. He was very supportive and...

i'd do it again and again - Latham, NY

On point!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

55 Year Old Bariatric Patient, Needed Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift. Latham, NY

Dr. Polynice is funny, personable, knowledgeable and kind. I became very nervous as I was being put to sleep and he held my hand. I said I guess you need that for surgery? He replied, I don't need it right now and he held my hand until I was asleep. His nurse, Mimi, is the BEST! She e-mails back and forth with me and is just a wealth of info. She is very understanding and patient too. I had a hundred post-surgical questions and she answered them quickly and thoroughly and always invited me to come to the office.... and there is no additional charge either! Recommend hands down!
