Restalyne injections for lips and laugh lines

Got injected for the first time with restalyne for my laugh lines and lips this Thursday (July 20, 2017). Dr. Apostolakis did such a great job on my nose and has taken really good care of me; that I trusted his recommendations. I told him that I'm turning 40 soon and I'm getting my midlife crisis. Therefore, please be honest and tell me if he could give me a more youthful look without...

Eye Bags and Tear Troughs

In the past five years I had noticed crevices under my eyes which were becoming quite deep. I have always had eye puffiness and expected "bags" due to genes, but this was more than that. This wasn't something concealer could correct. I went to an aesthetician who suggested filler. My troughs were so deep the filler was absorbed. Waste of $1,200!! I was nervous to have my bags done...

The Master Guru Rock Star! - Austin, TX

My experience at Dr. A's office is always a pleasant one. He's been my doctor since 2003 when he gave me my first Botox injections at the age of 40. Since then he has maintained and restored my beauty by: repairing my torn earlobes (literally took 20 minutes or less in the office), keeping my cheeks and lips plump with dermal fillers (He is the "Master" at lip injections!), my forehead and...

HOLLYYYY MOLLLLYYYY :)

Update Review: Well, it's been a little over 2 months and I've been enjoying my results so much that forgot to give a update :) EKKKK!!!! I also want to mentioned that I was VERY SCARED after surgery more scared than even getting the surgery. Was very depressed for a whole month having to look at myself in the mirror lol I know give me a break! Had 3 surgeries done at the same time and the healing down part sucks! haha... After a LOT of research I decided to do my consultation with Dr. Apostolakis and after the consultation I scheduled my surgery 2 weeks later! I hadn't gone to any other consultations with any other doctors either just knew he was the one and wasn't sugar coating anything! He tells you what he can accomplish and what the results will look like. I asked for 3 finger size forehead and he gave it to me! I asked for a little small w/ cute tip nose and he gave it to me! I asked for no more jumbo ears and he gave it to me! If you don't trust your doctor at least 99.99% you should not go with them to begin with! I trusted him so much that I got 3 surgeries at the same time! Now my son is wanting to get his ears done with him also! And I wouldn't pick no other doctor to have my son in good hands but Dr. Louis!!!!! My eyes went back to NORMAL! & that's what I was freaked out the most.. it's all funny now and think you were the only one going trough it! ohhh gezzz! ANYWAYS!!! I'll stop talking already, here goes his amazing work!!!! I would recommend him to everyone over and over again! I mean don't go with my word just look at my results for yourself! Very happy & thankful with the results!!!! First Review: ((wanted to keep this so others can see how freaked out I was right after surgery haha just in case you go trough it also! I'm very VERY happy with my results! Also, want to update that Dr. Louis is VERY friendly and always smiling every time I go in for the check ups! I guess he can't be cracking jokes while we're talking about the surgeries that I wanted haha he's VERY professional! I was reading my past review and thought I add this also! :) (1st review) Everyone at the front office is very nice and sweet and all the nurses and assistants who work there very welcoming and make you feel comfortable and not like they are talking crap behind your back which is nice (I've walked into some of those offices not fun) the girls working there make the experience better. The doc on the other hand is very serious and straight forward with everything has a serious look to his face usually the whole time i was at the consultation the only time I've seen him smile is on his website picture straight to business kind of man i guess.. i didn't really mind or care didn't make the experience any better or worse.. Everything came out good so far just very freaked out that we might of over done it on the forehead reduction/brow lift and now my eyes are crazy looking and my eye brows don't sit right with my face my eyes look sunken in, scared look, shocked look to them.. if my eyes don't go back to normal how i had them we both wont be happy campers! just praying it's just like everything else and I'm just swollen or something.. i'll keep updating.. overall rating is just a 2 right now until i see full results will keep updating on all 3 surgeries :)

44 Y.o. Mom of 2, Happy with Tear Trough Implants and Neck Lipectomy

I chose to have my surgeries performed by Dr. Apostolakis in Austin. Anyone who knows me, knows that I thoroughly analyze and go above and beyond in all research that I do on anything...whether vacations/travel, recipes, or especially, my own, personal medical stuff. I put a lot of time and effort into seeking out the best and making a wise decision. I had 2 consultations, and because I was doing cosmetic procedures from the neck up, I wanted a physician who specializes SOLELY in that area....NOT a surgeon who does breast implants and other cosmetic procedures, but "can do" facial stuff as well. So, I knew after meeting with Dr. A that he was exactly what I was looking for. I am in the medical field, and I would not describe him as a warm, fuzzy type of doctor. He is very matter of fact, and it is clear that he takes great pride in his work, and desires the very best outcome for his patients. He listens intently to what you are asking and looking for and he shoots straight with you. He will tell you what is realistically possible and he will NOT oversell you on procedures that you do not need. The 1st physician that I had a consultation with told me that I would benefit much more in my neck area by having a lower face lift. He indicated that I had some "jowls" that would still be present if only doing a neck lipectomy and that I would not be happy with the end result. That was after my initial consult with Dr. A. So, I went back to Dr. A for a second meeting. I asked him what he thought about the lower face lift and why he had not suggested it. He said that he didn't suggest it because I did not need it. Dr. A said that I would be one of the top 2-3 youngest women, in his 20 years of experience, that he had performed any type of facelift procedure on. He said my "jowls" were minimal at best, and that he believed he could help me achieve what I was looking for by doing only the neck lipectomy. I appreciated his straight forward nature and professional approach. This is not to say that he was not caring or compassionate. He has a dry sense of humor and I could still see that he very much cares and is concerned for his patient. His office staff, and his nurse, Missy, are terrific! Everyone is on top of their job and they are all incredibly welcoming. His surgical staff was also top notch. I felt so well taken care of from the initial consult all the way through the entire process. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Apostolakis!!

Rewarding experience!

Dr Apostolakis and his staff are top notch. After being referred by a friend from Austin, I traveled to Austin in March from California to have a complete facelift including a tear trough implant. The Dr and the entire staff made me feel completely comfortable prior to surgery and answered any questions I had with utmost expertise. The post op appts were thorough and assured me that...

Mid-30s RN, Tear Trough Deformity - Lower Blepharoplasty with Tear Trough Implants/ Fat Redraping

I had been considering tear trough implants for several years, having checked out a number of surgeons online, and told by my local skin MD that he was gunning to place fillers under my eyes for the past three +/- years. I've also gone back to school, gone through a divorce, and been doing the single parent thing-- along with working full time as a pediatric nurse in critical care/ higher...

No More Tired Looking Eyes - Austin, TX

I consulted with several plastic surgeons in Austin and Chicago (I live between the two cities) before deciding on Dr. Apostolakis for my recent upper blephoraplasty. I was impressed when Dr. Apostolakis explained that he likes to take a more natural looking approach with his pateints. I did not want to look "done" or not like myself. One top occular plastic surgeon in Austin advised me to have an browlift, a laser procedure and fillers, even after I explained a wanted a more conservative and natural looking approach. The other occular plastic surgeon I consulted with in Austin did not instill a strong sense of confidence, particularly after I saw several before and after photos of his patients. Dr. Apostolakis was professional, confident without being arrogant, and honest with his recommendations. He seems to really recommend what is in the patient's best interest. In addition, Dr. Apostolakis's staff is truly wonderful. The entire team made me feel comfortable, welcome, and truly at ease from the minute I walked into the office for the consultation, throughout the entire procedure, and during every follow up visit. This was such a welcome change after I had been to other offices where the staff were often cold and unapproachable. I highly recommend Dr. Apostolakis. He is a talented surgeon with a great staff!

So Happy with my Results - Austin, TX

Having my rhinoplasty done by Dr. A was the best decision I've ever made. He was knowledgable, patient, and most importantly, conservative. He really looked at my face and told me what he thought was best. He even talked me out of shaving down the upper bridge of my nose, and I'm so glad he did. Here's what was done: he corrected my severely deviated septum (completely closed nostril on one...
