Dr. Papanicolaou was very professional and explain what I needed to do to be able to proceed with the surgery. He was straight forward with the results and what to expect with the healing process. I love the office staff as well.

Was sent to Dr Papanicolaou by my doctor after having Mohr Surgery to remove cancer from my face. Dr Papanicolaou was to perform the plastic surgery to close the huge hole. He performed the surgery but after taking off bandages I had a large bump under the skin. Went back in & I was told to massage it and give it 6-8 weeks. I went back after this time to be told “it could take about 6 months total” . Went back again and was told “maybe”Botox could help but I need to pay for it myself. Also told me maybe their facial person could try a few procedures, but again at my cost. I understand things can happen, but I’ve never been to a plastic surgeon who doesn’t stand behind their work. It’s very noticeable to me and other people even ask me what happen. I am very disappointed that this doctor who is a plastic surgeon just didn’t care about me as a patient. I had already been through enough trauma with the Mohr surgery and having a big hole in my face. I would not recommend going here.

Dr. Papanicolau exceeded my expectations, he is a master at his craft, I had ruptured implants that had cause complications, Dr P. Performed an implant exchange plus lift, the entire process was relatively painless, his nurses are amazing, so caring , Angie was so gentle and Marisol in the office is above and beyond. Also the Florida surgical center was great, they treated me like a princess. Overall I cannot be happier with my experience, I highly recommend Soma Plastic surgery.

Dr. Papanicolaou was the absolute, hands-down, best surgeon I could’ve ever asked for. Getting a lift at 18 years old is a very daunting task, and Dr. P made me feel so comfortable and safe in his hands. His bedside manner is excellent, best I’ve ever seen, and his team make you feel like family. The results from my surgery exceeded my expectations and my confidence is at an all-time-high! Dr. Papanicolaou is the perfect option for anyone who wants to look and feel great. Not only that, but the healing process was a breeze thanks to his excellent care. You will not regret choosing Dr. P.

Had an amazing experience, at the office of Dr Papnicolaou, he treated me with ultimate respect, he makes sure you understand what he's doing and listens very carefully to my concerns and the staff there is very kind and professional. I had some fillers and cannot be more happier with my results. its so natural, no drastic changes, but enough for it to erase some years off my face. I Highly recommend Dr Papnicolaou, and his staff. Thank you Dr! give Him 5 stars...

It has been over a year since my bilateral breast reconstruction. My results are better than I expected. I am a nurse and was a patient at the homecare agency where I work. My co workers were impressed with his work and commented that Dr P is an artist.

I am beyond pleased with the results of my bilateral breast reduction. First and foremost the post op pain was minimal; I am not one to have a high pain tolerance. A week later my drains were removed and I resumed my life, with precaution of course. I am now 4 weeks post op and the incisions look fabulous, my nipples are proportional and symmetrical and they didn't lose any sensation. All and all I couldn't be happier with my results. If you're looking for a perfectionist, he's your guy !

Dr. Papanicolaou was involved in doing repair of a very difficult wound on my lower front shin, a very large area not easily closed thru plastic surgery, skin graft and wound care. He has that unique blend of clinical expertise, precise clinical judgement, empathy and great interpersonal skills. He did a wonderful job resolving the wound in spite of many challenges. I could not be more impressed nor more appreciative of the care he provided me and will always be indebted to him for it.

Doctor P. is a 5 star doctor!!!! I had a basal cell lesion removed from my lower left eyelid which required a skin graft to close the wound. Doctor P. did an outstanding job of reconstructing the eyelid and lower skin area near the eyeball. This was a very delegate area near the eye and DR P. did an exceptional job.

Dr. P was the emergency surgeon on duty when I can into the E.R. from a horrorific accident. He rebuilt the left side of my face just from my drivers license photo. Recovery was under quality care with minimal scarring. I was blessed and I believe he was as well. I should never have survived.
