I had a follow-up with Dr. Novia the day after the surgery, he unwrapped me took a look and said it looked great and put on my Bra and sent me on my way I have another follow-up appointment on Monday which will be a week and a half after the procedure so I'm looking forward to seeing him so I can ask the questions that I need to ask to set my mind at ease. I had my visit with Dr. Novia, he said everything is right where it needs to be if not better and everything looks great. so I'm super excited so happy with the results and healing very very fast. He is such an awesome awesome plastic surgeon great person I'm just so happy that he did my surgery and everything turned out as great as it did.

DR. Novia, and his staff, are amazing! They took the time to answer all my questions... and I had a lot :) He called my husband the night of my surgery to make sure I was doing ok. I would refer him to all of my friends.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

50 Year Old Female, Married, One Child -Olympia, WA

I had a breast reduction surgery done by Dr.Novia of Olympia, WA, in August of this year and could not be any happier with the INCREDIBLE results than I am. I feel very athletic and my self confidence has sky rocketed!!! His office staff and he himself are very easy to deal with, wonderful to talk to, incredibly helpful and dependable. My husband and I could tell that he loves his job. I had done YEARS of homework and having this surgery was a very big decision for me. The looks I now have are wonderful. My friends can not believe this could have been done, seeing the before and afters. As I followed close instructions by Dr.Novia regarding pain medications, this entire procedure of a breast reduction was completely painless. I would be glad to speak to anyone who is considering breast reduction surgery. Dr. Novia is a very likeable man and easy to talk to. He has a wonderful reputation in town and works with two known cancer doctors in his office. He has a reputation of being very concise and it proved to be accurate.

Dr. Novia is super nice! He makes your experience very comfortable. He makes sure that you're perfectly aware of any and every risk or side effect of the surgery before you agree to go forward with it. Super professional man. I would highly recommend him to anyone of any age.

Dr. Novia was great. He was very thorough in explaining the whole process and what to expect during each step. He was very honest with me about the surgery and the results I should expect. He is also a perfectionist; the work he did was awesome.

I am just a few days post-op, but Dr.Novia and staff have been amazing. This entire process from my first consultation through my first post op appointment has truly been a pleasant experience. I am already more than satisfied with my results and I am not even healed yet. He's that good! I highly recommend Dr.Novia.

Great to Feel Normal Again - Olympia, WA

After frustrations with back pain, dents in my shoulders, discomfort and clothes not fitting. I got a referral from my MD to see Dr Novia for breast reduction.

After my surgery, I almost immediately felt relief in my back and shoulders. He...

23 Years Old and Super Satisfied with Breast Augmentation - Olympia, WA

Dr. Novia was everything I could have asked for in a doctor. His bedside manner is genuine and he really just wants his patients to be happy. He helped me a lot in figuring out exactly what I wanted and then made it happen. I never had to wait for an appointment as he was always on time or ahead of schedule. He is an artist and he used his artistic eye to correct an unevenness in my natural...
