I found Dr. Apesos through another patient of his. I found that you need to know what kind of questions to ask him to get the information you want out of him because he isn’t exactly the kind of person who is very detailed in his explanations. I am very happy with the results of my breast augmentation and he was very patient with me when I would freak out and call the office numerous times a week. I would definitely recommend him to others and from my experience, be patient, don’t freak out, he knows what he is doing and if you follow his directions, you’re outcome will most likely be a good one.(I say that because everybody’s body is different and heals differently)
I consulted Dr. Apesos for liposuction of my abdomen and thighs. I was blown away when he said he wouldn’t do liposuction until I lost my extra weight. He told me to come back, when the weight was gone and we would talk about the procedure again. He advised me, liposuction is not for weight loss. As I was leaving, he could tell I was a little upset. He reassured me that if wanted the best possible results, that I needed to loss the extra weight. So, I lost the 20lbs and I had my procedure done! I can’t tell you how happy I am!!! Especially to find a doctor that turned my money away for my own benefit! What kind of Dr. turns money down? Dr. Apesos did! I consulted two other plastic surgeons prior to consulting Dr. Apesos and they were more than happy to do my liposuction at my previous weight. After leaving my consultation with Dr. Apesos, I knew hands down that I wanted him to do my procedure. My problem areas are gone and I love sporting my bikini!
I found Dr.Apesos to be a very thorough doctor, who more than took his time to answer any and ALL of my question. His bedside manner was very pleasant as well, he new that I was very nervous the morning of my surgery and manage to make me laugh. He took his time to listen to what it is that I wanted & and to make sure that I was going to be happy with the results. He even gave my husband his personal cell after my surgery should we need him. I would without a doubt recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery.
I landed at the Plastic Surgery Pavillion more than 10 years ago for a consultation with Dr Apesos. I had undergone a prophylactic double mastectomy with botched reconstructions by another plastic surgeon in the Dayton area 3 years prior. I had lost my self confidence and hope of ever feeling “normal” again. Dr Apesos was sympathetic, caring and thoughtful, and after the next few weeks of studying my extensive surgical history formulated a plan to “fix” me. Experience and talent does count! After a long and complicated surgery, I could not have hoped for a better outcome. I have passed along my story to many, and recommend Dr Apesos as the BEST in the Midwest. In fact, my results were so good that I have had many facial cosmetic surgeries since due to my trust in his skill and artistry. These include upper and lower blepharospasm, rhinoplasty, and an S-lift. My results are natural looking, not plastic or “pulled”. I finally look like I feel….a youthful 57!
I vowed I would never ever put myself through the ‘ordeal’ of plastic surgery, I thought”I hope I grow old gracefully”! My work keeps me in the spotlight, and I constantly come across people who have had face lifts or some cosmetic surgery. Dr. Apesos performed the surgery on most of these people, they simply looked naturally younger! Upon meeting Dr. Apesos, his passion about his profession and his ability make people happy was evident, and helped me make the decision to have a full facelift. I had total trust, he was incredibly thoughtful, caring and put my mind at ease from the very beginning. That was 6 years ago, I continue receive compliments about my looks, I couldn’t be happier! I traveled a long distance to Dr. Apesos for the surgery, I could have gone to one of several surgeons in the state where I live, but I made the right choice! I would recommend him to anyone who considers having cosmetic surgery.
I had my pre-op visit with Dr. Apeso’s recently. I have surgery in November. I had a lot of questions and concerns as I am young. He was very friendly and funny put my nervous at ease. His staff was very nice and caring on lady was quite wouldn’t really talk to me but other than that amazing. I know there are mixed reviews I guess in November I will see how amazing his work is I can not wait! Will update once I am back to myself.
A couple of dear friends of mine had went to Dr. Apesos for their BA and tummy tuck. One friend got her BA about 14 years ago and the other one was within year. They were extremely happy (both look very natural and I didn’t even know they had anything done). Also, my mother is a nurse and had worked at same hospital with him a long time ago so that verified his experience with me. I flew back to Ohio for my consult. This went very well. I got to try different implants in the bra they require for post op surgery. Dr. Apesos was aware that I wanted a very natural look as I am on TV. I was scared to go too big yet then again I didn’t want to be small. My results are perfect! Everyone on set and that I work with could not tell I had surgery yet I have nice natural looking Big ones!! haha.The scaring… can not even see it. They are exactly what I wanted. Great work guys!
It has been approximately one year and two months since Dr. Apesos performed my blepharoplasty (upper and lower) and my facelift. I could not be more pleased with the results. When I had my initial consultation with Dr. Apesos, he listened attentively and asked several questions for clarification as to my desired result. He provided me with a book of before and after pictures of individuals who had the same two procedures. We discussed his methodology for both procedures and what the results would be. He took a considerable amount of time answering my many questions as I had never had any elective surgery done before. Dr. Apesos carefully explained to me how I would feel after the surgery and when the follow-up appointments would take place. I was very impressed with his use of supplements to build up my cells prior to the procedures as well as reduce bruising afterward. The paperwork I took home was clear and concise as to what I was to do before and after the surgery. Having the surgery done at Dr. Apesos’s own surgical suite was convenient for me and my family. His surgical staff was kind and accommodating to a 66 year old. Never did I feel uneasy or rushed during my trips to and from the surgical suite. Although I was under anesthesia, I can remember staff members holding my hand and rubbing my shoulder during the procedure. My other memory is of Dr. Apesos’s calm voice speaking to the staff. I could not have asked for a more caring group to take care of me when I was vulnerable. My recovery was fast with very little bruising. Once the swelling subsided, I was amazed at the results that had been achieved. Dr. Apesos’s office staff was friendly and encouraging as to my healing face each and every time I came for an appointment. I continued to follow Dr. Apesos’s instructions for the next year until my eyes and face had finished changing. We had a slight reconfiguration of one eye at the one-year mark which made my results 100% of what I wanted. I continued my journey with Kathy of the Skin Center (also in Dr. Apesos’s office) to use filler on some lines around my mouth with fantastic results. Now when I look in the mirror, I can see memories of that young woman again that I once was. Because of Dr. Apesos’s conservative approach, nobody knows I have had these procedures done. People just comment on how healthy I look and wonder what I do to my skin to make it look so young. I would recommend Dr. Apesos in a heartbeat to anyone desiring these types of surgeries. He is a highly intelligent doctor who is excellent at his craft. Dr. Apesos has made a positive change in my life and in my self confidence that will last for years. I will never be able to thank him.
Hi, I severely burned my right hand as a baby. From what I was told multiple surgeons said they couldn’t fix it. However, Dr. Apesos wasn’t afraid to try. Gosh, it must have been about 30 years ago now? I’ve just recently been told the name of the surgeon that helped to restore the use of my right hand. I wanted to reach out and say thank you to Dr. Apesos. I’m forever grateful for his efforts. It’s still scarred but it’s functional I’m so grateful that it’s relatively normal looking. I’m eternally grateful for what he’s done for me. I’m glad I now know who he is so that I can voice that gratitude to him. Thanks

As you age, your face goes through different changes. Around age 40, you might notice a drooping in your eyelids and maybe a few small wrinkles near the forehead or mouth. By the time you turn 50, you might see a gradual sagging in your face. Due to menopausal changes, you start to lose a chunk of your collagen, and skin inflammation could increase. You don’t have to sit back and accept the situation, because there are some things you can do to make your skin appear younger. Use Skincare Products with Healthy Ingredients These go a long way in helping your face appear younger. These products also don’t have to be expensive because there are drugstores that have affordable and high-quality ingredients. Look for skincare products that contain vitamin A, vitamin E, retinoids, vitamin C, and alpha hydroxy acid. Other good ingredients to look for in skincare products include salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid, and green tea extract. Don’t Go Overboard with Makeup Makeup makes you look fabulous, but too much of the heavy foundation could make you look older. As you age, it’s better to apply a liquid moisturizing foundation. Another idea would be to apply a primer before […]
Our hands do a lot. We rely on our hands for everything from cooking, typing, crafting, expressing ourselves through art and music, to caring for others. We want our hands to look graceful and beautiful, but let’s face it: we also expect our hands to function daily. Our hands are on full display, so we want to care for them and may even receive routine manicures with embellished nail polish and nail art. But, our hands are one of the first things to show our age. So, how do we turn back the clock and keep our hands looking youthful and lovely? What causes our hands to age? Well, age itself, of course, gets most the blame for hands looking older. As we age, we naturally start losing more and more collagen. Collagen gives our skin its flexibility and suppleness. This loss of collagen shows up most notably on the hands. The skin on our hands naturally starts out thinner, and then if you add all the work and activity we expect our hands to do, we can see why the loss of collagen makes such a difference. Sun damage represents another factor that especially affects the hands. Damaging UV […]
Everyone loves the idea of having smooth, glowing skin throughout their lives. But many of us find that our skin is aging along with us. In fact, skin may age even more quickly than one might expect. The good news is, however, that that is not the end of the story. Take a moment to look over these six steps to a younger face to discover which ones you already practice and which you need to incorporate into your life. Step #1: Make healthy lifestyle choices for a younger face. You know, this is the thing that all doctors will tell you. And Dr. Apesos is no different. One of the best ways to keep your skin looking youthful is to stay healthy in general. Drink water. Eat your greens (and skip the ice cream now and then). Go outside. Put on sunscreen. You’ve heard this before. But health professionals say these things for a reason. When you make a habit of healthy living, your skin will show it. Step #2: Cultivate stress-relieving habits. Many wrinkles, dark spots, and other signs of aging can show up on your skin due to stress. Thus, a battle against stress is a battle […]
You’ve probably heard the term “microneedling” before. But what do you actually know about the procedure and the benefits it can provide? With specialized skin treatment like microneedling steadily growing in popularity, many people are still in the dark about what exactly it entails — and how it can help rejuvenate your skin. This article will give you an idea of the process, and the results countless individuals experience after a microneedling treatment. Four Things You Need to Know About Microneedling Treatment Anybody Can Benefit Absolutely anyone can reap the significant rewards of a microneedling treatment. Because the treatment is minimally invasive, it makes for a quick and easy way to give your face a bit of TLC without the drama, hassle, or time that many other treatments require. Microneedling stimulates your body’s natural repair process in order to create cosmetic benefits. The needles involved in the procedure break a patient’s skin just enough to get the body started on some restorative action. As dramatic as the process may sound, it’s really no more than this. And that’s why it’s considered a relatively safe cosmetic procedure for anybody to undergo. The Concept of Microneedling is Not New Many potential treatment […]
Long gone are the days when aging gracefully was a rite of passage for all men; wrinkles and saggy skin seen as badges of honor on a life well lived. Just as women strive to maintain and even exceed the beauty had in younger years, men are now demanding their rights to drink of this same fountain of youth. Procedures for men are more widely available and popular than many men may realize. Men and women seek cosmetic surgery either to achieve greater beauty and youth or to repair the damages of time or trauma. Let’s discuss some of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men performed today. Breast Reduction and Pectoral Implants Breast Reduction and Pectoral Implants are procedures that men especially younger men are pursuing to improve both body self-image and overall comfort. Gynecomastia is a medical condition that results in enlarged breast/breasts from swollen breast tissue in men. These physical changes may occur as a result of hormonal fluctuations or medications and may or may not be permanent. Men may seek a breast reduction which can be performed through liposuction by means of small incisions, reducing the breast size. Pectoral implants can also firm up and give […]
While a rhinoplasty isn’t the most invasive procedure that you can undergo, like any surgery, it is important to prepare for it. When you make the decision to undergo a nose job, your cosmetic surgeon will go through the list of pre-operation instructions with you. It is important to follow them. However, if you want the procedure to go as smoothly as possible, consider these tips to help prepare for your rhinoplasty procedure. Stop Smoking You will want to try your hardest to stop smoking at least two weeks before your surgery. Nicotine slows down the healing process so it is important to keep it out of your system until everything is fully healed. Prepare for Dry Mouth After Your Rhinoplasty Procedure You don’t know how much you breathe out of your nose until you can’t breathe out of it anymore, right? Fully anticipate that after the procedure is done, you will have a dry mouth due to increased breathing out of your mouth. It is recommended to get some lip balm and have some cool water to keep it moist. Change Your Sheets After your rhinoplasty procedure, you will want to go right to bed, and perhaps stay there […]
Every man wants those hard, sculpted pectoral muscles on their chest. Unfortunately, sometimes things don’t work out that way. Instead of rock-hard chest muscles, some men find themselves saddled with floppy man boobs. No matter how hard they exercise or how much mass they add to their pecs at the gym, these pockets of flab just won’t go away. If this describes your chest, then unfortunately you have gynecomastia. It is widely believed that the colloquially known “man boobs” of gynecomastia are caused by being overweight. However, while being overweight can cause them, typically dropping the weight will cause them to go away too. If you are in even relatively good shape, but still have a soft, poorly formed chest, then you have gynecomastia. And it should probably be addressed. What Causes Gynecomastia? If you have a soft chest caused by gynecomastia, then the likely cause is an imbalance in hormones. Both men and women are made up of male and female hormones, but have them in different levels. Gynecomastia is when you have too much estrogen and not enough male hormones to balance it out. Typically, this is why babies (or boys in early puberty) will have soft chest […]
As the largest organ in your body, your skin is responsible for the important task of protecting the rest of your body. However, like any good armor, you want to keep it shined up and looking good for everyone that sees it. Unfortunately, there are many who don’t give their skin the attention that it needs. There are myriad reasons to take care of your skin, not just because it is your armor. If you are considering taking up a skin care routine, then here are some great reasons why. Give Care Now, Reap the Rewards Later You will always be able to spot people who didn’t take any care of their skin as they age because it really does show. A skincare routine and proper care when you are young will prevent early aging and will decrease the severity of age signs later. While skin care won’t prevent age signs completely, it will allow it to happen more gracefully and start to appear later. Staying Comfortable If you have never had the discomfort of dry or damaged skin, consider yourself lucky. However, the more you continue to ignore your skin, the more likely it is that you will have […]
