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

More and more people are turning to plastic surgery to get the body that they have always wanted. Though many are in shape, they just aren’t seeing the results that they think that they should be getting. Others look toward plastic surgery as a way to lose weight and get a better-looking shape. However, liposuction isn’t for everyone. Here are some things to know before you decide on getting liposuction or any other procedures. You need to understand that getting liposuction isn’t a way to lose weight. Though it can help you to look skinnier and more firm, it is not right for you if you have a significant amount of weight to lose. You may need to consider another procedure to help with the weight loss before firming up with liposuction. It is also important to remember that getting liposuction is not a “quick fix.” In fact, you may need to be more committed to your diet and exercise program in order to keep your body at a healthy weight and size. Some people gain weight after their procedure, and it can really affect how you look. Areas that have already gone through liposuction may gain weight slower than […]
You’ve tried it all – lipstick, gloss, and every other lip product under the sun; everything that’s advertised to make your lips look fuller and better contoured. Nothing has worked! You’ve just succeeded in wasting lots of money on a dream of full lips. However, the thin lips you were born with aren’t going to get any fuller on their own. In fact, as you age, it is likely they are going to get worse, manifesting other undesirable traits like wrinkles. Thin lips not only limit your available cosmetic options, but they make it so you constantly look like you are in a bad mood. If you want to stop mean mugging everyone you meet accidentally with thin, severe-looking lips, then it may be time to consider lip augmentation. If there is one cosmetic procedure that those open to cosmetic surgery may seek to avoid, it could be lip augmentation. At this point, we have all seen the joke on TV – about the woman with augmented lips that looks like she got stung by a bee. Yes, it’s funny, but that is not what lip augmentation is. While this is something you may want to avoid, only bad plastic […]
Your skin is the biggest organ in your body. That means it is pretty important! It is crucial to keep your skin in good shape. But, if we are honest, we often leave our skin to take care of itself. It’s time to start caring for our skin! Here are six habits to avoid: Habit #1: Forgetting to put on sunscreen. We often do not realize how much our skin is exposed to harmful sun rays. Of course, getting sunshine is good for both our mood and our overall health. But if we want to talk about overall health, we need to take our skin into account. Too much exposure to sun can and will damage your skin cells. The damage will start slow; but five or ten years down the road, you will wish you had taken better care of your skin. Remember that even when it is cloudy, sun rays can still seep through. So take a minute before you go outside to put on sunscreen. It will be worth it. Habit #2: Eating processed food. Believe it or not, our eating habits make a big difference for the health of our skin. The processed foods that you […]
More and more people are getting a liposuction procedure to get the body that they have always wanted. You can look almost anywhere to find people with success stories. However, there are also plenty of horror stories too! In order to make sure that your liposuction procedure goes well, it is important that you find the right surgeon. Here are some tips to help you. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends and other people that you know who they used when they got their own liposuction procedure done. Most people know someone (or know someone who knows someone) who has gotten some work done. Ask them who they used and if they would recommend them for you. A bad recommendation is just as good because you know where you shouldn’t go. If you don’t know anyone, look online. Many people love to leave reviews online so you should have no problem finding reviews for almost anything, including plastic surgeons. Look for ones with glowing reviews, though you should expect to find a few negative reviews too. People love to complain so negative reviews are more common than positive ones! Also, one person can’t make everyone happy. It is impossible, […]
Dermaplaning, an exfoliation procedure, removes dead skin and unwanted hair from the surface of your skin. A tool is used to remove the outer layer of skin and any peach fuzz hair on your face to give your face a younger appearance. While most people use Dermaplaning because they want to have younger looking skin, there are many added benefits. Dermaplaning is very safe. A Dermaplaning facial doesn’t use any chemicals so it is non-abrasive. This also makes it great for people who can’t use many products on their face due to their sensitive skin. Because of this, it can be used on any skin type. You should notice that your skin is much smoother to the touch. As it gets rid of the dead skin cells on your face, it exfoliates your skin, leaving it looking flawless and feeling smoother. It also removes facial hair. Not only can this hair be unsightly (and unwanted), it can also trap dirt and oils. This can make your face appear oily, no matter how often you clean it. Dermaplaning can also help fight the signs of aging. It can help decrease fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and other signs of aging that you may […]
Choosing to get liposuction is can be an exciting, and oftentimes scary, decision. Preparing your body and mind for your procedure is almost as important as the surgery itself. Before you get liposuction, here are a few things to keep in mind: Get a medical examination In order to verify that you are in good health and ready for this procedure, your personal physician should complete a health history and physical exam. This is not only for your protection, but for your peace of mind as well. Make sure to bring this with you to your liposuction appointment, or send it beforehand if required. Note your medicine intake Make sure your doctor knows all of the medicines and natural health products you are currently taking, because they may increase risks during surgery. Your doctor may require that you stop taking all drugs, medicines, herbs and non-prescribed vitamins, including aspirin or Tylenol, before surgery. Make sure you understand the process Before you scare yourself with online videos, ask your doctor to explain the liposuction process so you know what to expect. This will give you a checklist for things to look out for before and after your surgery and give your […]
New beauty products seem to be hitting the market every day. With the global cosmetic market growing at a rate of four percent annually, it is no surprise that the beauty products market is projected to reach over $805 billion USD by 2023. With so many products available to consumers, it is important to separate those products that are proven to be effective from those that promise unsubstantiated results. Below are five tips to help you find beauty products that actually work. 1) Look for beauty products which are approved by the FDA FDA approval is not required for all types of beauty products. But there is sometimes a fine line separating cosmetics from drugs, which DO require FDA approval. For instance, beauty products that are intended to remove wrinkles or increase collagen are treated like drugs or medical devices by the FDA, and must be FDA approved before they are marketed to Americans: “Under the law, cosmetics must be safe when consumers use them according to product labeling, or the way in which the products are customarily used. But the law does not require cosmetics to be approved by FDA before they go on the market. Drugs, however, must have FDA approval for both […]
Liposuction, often referred to as “lipo”, is a surgical procedure performed by a licensed physician to slim, sculpt and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat. Dr. Apesos will perform an evaluation to help you determine how liposuction will help you meet your goals for your body. Once the procedure is completed, here’s what to expect within the days, weeks and months during the healing process. What to Expect Immediately After the Procedure Within the first 24 hours, you can expect to feel very little pain and discomfort; you will still experience numbness from the procedure. The process of liposuction involves the injection of fluids into the body and those fluids will need to drain after the procedure. The longer that the fluid is retained by the body, the longer the body will remain swollen so expelling that fluid quickly will aid in a quicker recovery. As the fluid drains, you will need to ensure that you’re resting on towels to keep bed sheets clean. The fluid may be tinted red from blood so don’t be alarmed if you see that it isn’t clear. As the numbness wears off, some pain or discomfort may be felt. Dr. […]
