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 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!
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 Eye Bags Treatment
The staff at Dr. A's office and Dr. A are amazing. So friendly, so informative. The office is small and Dr. A only does faces, so I definitely felt like I was in good hands. I like how every time I went in for an appointment everyone always greeted me by my name. I highly recommend Dr. A and his staff and in fact, my sister is going to have the same procedure in a couple of months!
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,...

Very professional and very passionate about his work. Dr. A specializes in facials and he has mastered the skill. He and his staff take pride in their work and is always concerned about my well-being.
5 out of 5 stars Lip Implants
He only does the face, no other parts of the body, because he cares about doing quality work.
5 out of 5 stars Juvederm
He is very professional and pleasant. I feel he has a good aesthetic eye for beauty. My lips are a perfect cupid's bow. I don't like them to look like an inner tube, as some doctors have done them in the past. He did them perfectly. He is professional, nothing but business. He will consult with you multiple times to make sure you have every question answered. If you are looking for a cheesy guy who will schmooze you or you want someone to kiss your butt, he's not your guy. However, his office manager, Celeste will treat you like you are the only patient on the planet. She’s awesome! His medical assistants are so friendly and caring. They are also not scary overdone with plastic surgery, like a lot of other Austin doctors have done to their staff. He’s very serious and I like that. He’s also honest about what you do need and don’t. I did not feel “sold” or talked into anything that I didn’t want or need. I would highly recommend him for fillers and surgery.
