Male Breast Reduction

I am absolutely grateful to Dr. Symbas and his staff. He is an extremely proffesional, caring and skilled physician. This has been a very positive experience.

Neck Lift

The Piedmont office team is very accommodating; they promptly respond they have to get back to you and appear genuine and committed in making the patient feel valued. I was fortunate to have a patient advocate Jan Brown- this was a game changer. She was there for me 24/7 and mitigate many of my fears and panic. Dr. Symbas was also terrific. He carefully explained what was happening to me on day 3 when I called at 9:00 pm on a Friday night.

Tummy Tuck Revision

Dr. Symbas maintains an excellent bedside manner, so your experience is always as comfortable as possible considering the circumstances. I needed scar revision and the process was seamless. I am grateful for the expertise and demeanor of everyone at Dr. Symbas's office. [Single best thing is...] the ease of access to the facility and being able to recover at home was the best part of my surgical experience.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Symbas is awesome!!!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

My results were perfect and the doctor and staff were exceptional. Excellent results, friendly staff, explanation of the procedure was understandable and helpful.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Symbas and his team are wonderful! My surgical options were explained thoroughly and all my questions were answered. The follow up care was exceptional. I wish I had done this surgery sooner. Life after breast reduction is so much better! Following breast reduction my clothes fit better, I sleep better and look like a better version of myself. Dr. Symbas worked a miracle for me!

Eyelid Surgery

The staff was attentive. Dr. Symbas answered all of my questions. I did not feel pressured to move forward with the surgery. In the end I did move forward with the surgery, but it was because I trusted Dr. Symbas and not because I felt pressure to get the surgery done.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Symbas is always nice to me and he loves what he does. He is amazing. Great results from Botox. My face looks great.

Breast Implant Revision

The staff is so professional and friendly. The spa robes are so much more pleasant to wear vs. the ratty hospital gown I previously was given at my former surgeons office. Dr. Symbas is so nice and truly cares about my concerns and made me feel confident that he can correct my problem.

Breast Augmentation

I went to Dr. Symbas for surgery and I did not regret it one bit. He and his staff are very professional and makes you feel comfortable. He does a great job and I am loving my results.

Breast Lift

In mid-July 2019 Dr. Symbas performed my breast lift/reduction surgery. I am so very pleased with the results–I feel like a new person! My only regret is allowing myself to suffer for as many years as I did. Throughout the whole process, from the initial consult to the surgery and each follow up appointment, Dr. Symbas went well out of his way, above and beyond, to make himself available to answer my questions and address concerns. I especially appreciated the fact that he included me in his strategic thought process. Helping me understand the procedure, potential conditions he could encounter and how he would handle it went a long way toward my decision to select him as my surgeon. In fact, every member of his practice I had contact with was a pleasure to work with, eager to make sure I felt taken care of. Another key to my choice of Dr. Symbas was his reconstructive specialty. I trusted that he had all the tools in his arsenal along with the expertise necessary to address any issue that may arise during the surgery. He is not only a skilled surgeon; he is a genuinely caring person, approachable and easy to talk to. Dr. John Symbas belongs at the top of your short list!

Breast Lift

From first consult, interaction with the entire staff, surgical process, after care & follow up visit, I felt completely cared for, listened to & my needs were made a priority. Dr. Symbas is a rare find. Not only an extremely gifted surgeon but also a compassionate & caring human being.

Caring Dr. and staff. Quick and easy procedure with very good results.


Dr. Symbas is truly the best. He always makes me feel comfortable and provides the best experience and results.

The customer service and patient care was incredible. And watching people come in and leave they were happy and smiling. That means so much. What a great team. [Single best thing is...] Looking and feeling younger without any downtime. Quick and easy and able to work same day.
