Are you a patient of Louis Potyondy, MD?
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.

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.
FIVE STARS Will update after the procedure

Dr. Potyondy was really great! Dr. Potyondy's years of experience are evident. He is knowledgable, kind, and confident. Excellent communication, which is SO important when going through the inherant insecurities that come with plastic surger recovery. He gave us his cell phone number, and encouraged us to call him if we needed anything. While he would not have mined if we called, I really appreciated being able to text him with questions the day after surgery. Dr. Potyondy has a young energy about him, yet has many many years of experience, which always matters. He is an incrediblly skilled surgeon.

Today is one week post op and I couldn't be any happier. Dr. Potyondy and his staff have all been amazing. The Dr. is kind and patient and the staff are always eager to make you smile. Dr. potyondy is basically available to you 24/7 and reachable by phone/text/email after surgery. It truly maks me feel like he cares about my recovery. My only regret is not doing it sooner!
The office I'm working with is Aesthetica Clinique in Tacoma, WA. They are wonderfully staffed and the doctors wife Jaime has been more than helpful with any and every concern or question I've had. She's absolutely wonderful and one of the nicest women I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. The staff is very respectful and insightful. Very kind and the office has an absolutely wonderful atmosphere!

So far I have liked my experience! Dr. Potyondy came highly recommended from a relative that got her BA done by him. They were very welcoming and I liked the Asthetica clinic. I felt I got the attention needed and we discussed options, he was very down to earth, easy to talk to and knowledgable. I was able to get a surgery date less than a month away (could have been sooner but I needed more time to plan). I will definitely be updating this review after the pre-op and surgery. Also, his wife Jamie was so helpful and was patient with me while I worked out dates. I would recommend Dr. Potyondy based on my experience so far! UPDATE: So I got my surgery done and am very happy with Dr. Louis Potyondy's work! I would recommend him to anyone in the Tacoma/Seattle area!

Dr. Potyondy is an incredible doctor! He spent so much time explaining my options, and did not push any treatments. After much discussion, we decided to try lipo on my upper and lower abdominals, and flanks/"love handles," as there was a good chance I could get good results without needing a tummy tuck. The procedure was much easier than I anticipated: Dr. Potyondy's staff was so kind and prepared me for what to expect; Jaime in particular was amazing! Post-surgery, what I experienced was mostly what felt like muscle soreness. Once the swelling subsided a bit, I also had an umbilical repair. Most of the swelling subsided in about 12 weeks, and fast forward to a year later, I am so thrilled with the results!! I have my small waist and cute belly button back, and am able to enjoy a summer in bikinis for the first time in years!!! I have already referred family and friends to Dr. Potyondy for various procedures, and they too have been thrilled with the results!! He is a top-notch doctor with impeccable technique, and a friendly, non-intimidating bedside manner!!
