5 out of 5 stars Facelift
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...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
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...
I'm a happy an upbeat person, but you'd never know that by only looking at me. My eyes made me look tired and angry. After the physician who did my botox told me that botox could only accomplish so much and that upper eyelid surgery would be a great option, I began investigating. The physician who recommended the procedure does not perform surgery, so I consulted with several other...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
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...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
My eyelids were getting more hooded by the year. It really bothered me, especially in pictures. I decided to take care of it before I turned 40 because I wanted my eyes to "match" the rest of my face. The surgery was simple and I believe it has made a huge difference. There was no pain, I never even took a pain pill and the recovery was 1 week of downtime. By 2.5 weeks, the results were...
5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment
My whole life I've had eye bags. My dad has them, one of my brother's has them, my sister has them (although she has booked the same surgery I had with the same doctor, so she'll join the no bag club soon). I was constantly asked "are you tired?", "do you have bad allergies?", "have you been crying?" Sometimes I wasn't even asked, but simply told "you look so tired!". Thanks folks. I didn't...
5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant
I'd been considering a chin implant for almost 10 years but was terrified of the process and didn’t know where to start. I met with a handful of doctors in the Austin area, and Dr. Apo was the last doctor that I met with. I had been uncertain about the surgery until I left his office. I feeling confident, well looked after, and completely calm about my decision. His staff was wonderful,...
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
As stated on Angie's List, I found Dr. A and his staff outstanding and professional. All of my concerns and questions were addressed and I would recommend Dr. A and staff to anyone. I was particularly amazed at the personal care and time extended to me. The follow-ups have actually been kind of fun because I can see my progress and I am never treated like a stranger. By the way, Dr. A is a...
5 out of 5 stars Lip Implants
I love my permanent lip implants because they have changed my appearance for the better, in a very subtle way, and make me look and feel a lot younger. Photos of me come out better, too, because the thicker lips give more '3 dimensionality' to my face. But best of all, they're permanent. Unlike temporary fillers, they don't 'wear off' in 3-6 months, nor do they...
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
I did not even realize how depressed I was about how old I looked until I had Juvederm. I am thrilled! I have had Restylane and Sculptra treatments prior. The Restylane may have lasted a month, if that. It was a total buzz kill and waste of money. The Sculptra left me with bumps (that I still have years later) and didn't f
