5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation


It was a great experience. Dr. Potyondy and the staff are all so kind and helpful. They know what they're doing and take good care of their patients. There were a couple moments where things felt a bit rushed, but I had done my research. I understood everything that was being said and what was happening next. I trusted them fully and I'm glad I did. I'm only day 2 Post-Op but so far I'm very...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

this doctor and his staff are awesome!!

Left ruptured saline implant. I was having some issues for the past 6 months all on the left side and kept thinking it may be related to the implant, but they appeared fine, until I woke a month ago and I knew right way, something was definitely wrong. I was unaware my previous surgeon passed away over a year ago. So imagine my surprise when I found out. At that point I was not sure what I was...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Dr Potyondy and his team are amazing - Tacoma, WA

He is an amazing surgeon. I am so happy with my tummy tuck results. His crew is sweet. His wife is very helpful and just a phone call away. I remember texting her late at night thinking she would text me back in the morning, I got a reply within five minutes. Having this surgery was the best decision I've ever made. And I'm happy that I chose Dr Potyondy to do it. I would highly recommend him.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Dr. Potyondy and Theresa turned another clinics failure into a complete success!

I cannot thank Dr. Potyondy, Theresa and the rest of the staff at Aesthetica Clinique enough. I went there for a major fix to a previous surgery that went wrong, from a different, non-affiliated clinic. I had terrible scarring, a mastopexy that did not hold up, and a breast lift that was unnoticeable. To say the least, my previous doctor was unimpressive and I was extremely unhappy with the...

42 and Finally Doing This for Myself!

I was very nervous going into my surgery. I had many questions before I made my final decision on which office I was going to choose (and even after I made my decision). No one hesitated to thoroughly answer all my questions, no matter how silly my question may have sounded. The day of my surgery, I was especially nervous. Dr. Potyondy's entire staff recognized this and showed great compassion and patience. I am very happy with the results from Dr. Potyondy, and would recommend him to anyone.

I am very pleased with my results and all my interactions with the Dr and staff. I will update more as my journey progresses.

28 Year Old 5'4 139 Pounds - Much Needed Mommy Makeover (Breast Aug W/lift and Tummy Tuck)

So far, he was very informational, didn't give me a basic answer. Took the time to answer my questions talk about the "why" behind what he was suggesting for me. Didn't try and sell me on anything, just gave me facts and suggestions and information. made me feel extremely comfortable. His office staff were awesome as well! His wife is his office manager and she messaged me after hours with pictures of the different types of implants an etc. I will update as I go through the process.

34yrs Old, BF 4 Kids, Small 34A, 300cc HP Cohesive Gel Unders - Tacoma, WA

Sorry for the massive block of text, I'm trying to figure out how to get paragraph breaks in. I'm only 3 days post-op but overall had a great experience. Potyondy is skilled and gave me exactly what I wanted. The staff is warm and friendly, and even texted answers to my questions after hours. They were able to fit in my surgery last min so I only had to wait 8 days from consultation to surgery. The nurse and anasthesiologist were fantastic. Recovery has been pretty good so far. The things I didn't like may seem nit-picky, but I wanted the review to be accurate. First; the wait times. For consult and pre-op I was seen at least 30-45mins after my apptmt time. And for the operation itself, I waited over 2 hours in a room. Also the office management seemed a little disorganized. My initial quote was just handwritten and photocopied. And after I paid at pre-op, I never had anything in writing that showed what I was getting (which made me wonder, did they order the right size?). I was never asked or called to schedule post-op apptmts, so I guess I will call today and do that. Most of that could be because they squeezed my surgery in very quickly, so maybe I was the exception to the rule. And finally, I felt that Dr Potyondy wasn't really interested in analyzing my pics of what I wanted. Maybe he's trying to keep expectations realistic because of course no Dr can you make look exactly like Kate Hudson, haha. Don't get me wrong, he was great at easing my fears and answering my many questions. But it felt like he sort of had a basic look and size that he likes to put in - ultra high profile, bigger CCs. He's done a lot of augmentations, and he knows what women want and what they end up regretting. I did really appreciate that he doesn't make operating table sizing changes - the final decision on size and profile is up to the patient, and he sticks with what the patient decides. I was going for a smaller, conservative look, and in the end, I went a little bigger than I had originally thought and I did get exactly what I was going for. Overall, a positive experience and I would recommend him to other women.
