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

Eye lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a transformative procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes by addressing sagging skin, puffiness, and wrinkles. This surgical technique involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This results in a more refreshed and youthful look. Dr. Apesos, a renowned expert in cosmetic surgery, offers exceptional care and expertise in performing eye lift surgeries, ensuring optimal results for his patients. Why Choose an Eye Lift? There are several reasons why individuals consider undergoing an eye lift procedure. Common motivations include: Correction of Aging Signs: As we age, the skin around the eyes can lose elasticity, leading to drooping eyelids and under-eye bags. An eye lift can effectively reverse these signs of aging, restoring a more alert and vibrant appearance. Improved Vision: In some cases, excessive skin on the upper eyelids can obstruct vision. By removing this extra tissue, patients often experience improved peripheral vision and overall visual clarity. Boost in Self-Confidence: Many individuals seek an eye lift to enhance their self-esteem and feel more comfortable with their appearance. The rejuvenating effects of the surgery can have a positive impact on self-image and confidence. Addressing Concerns While […]
Plastic surgery has come a long way in recent years. With advancements in technology and surgical techniques, reconstructive surgery has seen remarkable progress, leading to improved outcomes and an enhanced quality of life for patients. In this blog post, we will explore some of the “hot topics” in reconstructive surgery that continue to revolutionize the field and positively impact patients’ lives. Facial Transplantation: A New Lease on Life One of the most groundbreaking innovations in reconstructive surgery is facial transplantation. This procedure involves the transfer of facial tissues from a deceased donor to a patient who has suffered severe facial trauma or deformities. By restoring the patient’s facial features, including the skin, muscles, and underlying structures, facial transplantation can dramatically improve the patient’s appearance and functional abilities. Facial transplantation is not only a cosmetic procedure; it also addresses psychological and emotional well-being. Patients who have undergone this procedure report significant improvements in their self-esteem and overall quality of life. Although still considered an intricate and challenging procedure, facial transplantation represents a true triumph of modern reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive Head and Neck Surgery: Restoring Function and Aesthetics Reconstructive head and neck surgery is another area where innovation has greatly impacted patient […]
When it comes to enhancing one’s appearance, the eyes play a significant role. They are, after all, the windows to the soul. But what happens when these windows start to sag, develop bags, or hinder vision? The answer lies in the transformative power of eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can be a life-changing procedure for many. It addresses various concerns like sagging skin, bags under the eyes, and vision problems caused by droopy eyelids. This surgical procedure removes excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat that may be causing these issues. There are different types of eyelid surgeries, each designed to address specific concerns. Upper eyelid surgery, for instance, is often used to improve vision and give the eyes a more open and youthful appearance. Lower eyelid surgery, on the other hand, primarily targets bags under the eyes, reducing puffiness and wrinkles.

However, the benefits are manifold, ranging from enhanced aesthetic appeal to improved vision and boosted self-confidence. In the hands of an experienced and skilled surgeon like Dr. Apesos, these concerns are […]

Age is a number, but it does mark a milestone in a woman’s life where changes in her body and face can be evident. The physical signs of aging bother most women as they age, especially when they start losing their youthful appearance. Whether it’s sagging facial and neck skin, arms that wobble too much, stubborn pockets of body fat, or stretched-out abdominal muscles from pregnancy, the desire for a more youthful appearance is quite common. While diet and exercise are essential for maintaining a healthy body, sometimes they’re not enough to provide the physical aesthetic results women want. Cosmetic surgery is an option, particularly full-body cosmetic surgery. This blog post will explore the comprehensive benefits of full-body cosmetic surgery for middle-aged women.

But beyond the physical transformation, cosmetic surgery can also significantly impact a person’s mental health in various ways. Here are some key benefits of cosmetic surgery on mental health: Improved Self-Confidence Cosmetic surgery can help individuals feel more comfortable in their skin. As their physical imperfections are addressed, they often experience a boost in self-confidence and self-esteem.
