At Soma Plastic Surgery in Lake Mary, you’ll find the office of Dr. George Papanicolaou, a respected practitioner with 20 years of medical expertise under his belt. He serves patients seeking both cosmetic enhancement and reconstructive assistance.

After graduating from the Orlando Regional Medical Center surgery program, Dr. Papanicolaou completed his plastic surgery training and two extra plastic surgery subspecialty fellowships in microsurgery and craniofacial surgery. As a result, he actually holds two board certifications – from both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery – and one subspecialty certification. Few plastic surgeons nationwide have completed two subspecialties in addition to their basic training in plastic surgery. Dr. Papanicolaou’s level of training is reflected in his impeccable results.

A talented surgeon, Dr. Papanicolaou currently specializes in facial cosmetic procedures. His craniofacial background gives him comfort dealing with both the skeleton and soft tissues of the face. He uses his expertise to reshape ears and noses as well as perform eyelid surgery. He rejuvenates the face with surgical and nonsurgical techniques like face and neck lifts, brow lifts, lip and cheek enhancements, laser treatments, and a wide spectrum of fillers and botox, to name a few. He performs breast augmentations, reductions, lifts, and reconstruction as well as body contouring procedures such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and arm and thigh lifts.  Dr. Papanicolaou’s acute attention to detail and care for patients’ well-being serves him well in performing these aesthetic procedures. Patients have even called him a perfectionist.

“The patient’s safety is my first goal,” Dr. Papanicolaou says. “I want to offer a  good experience and offer natural-looking results.”

His hands-on, personalized care means that Dr. Papanicolaou is the one who consults with every patient, and it’s him you’ll see during pre-op and post-op. During consultation, he will listen to questions and concerns and be honest with his recommendations to fit your lifestyle and specific shape.

After 10 years of private practice in the Orlando area, Dr. Papanicolaou recently moved his office to Lake Mary, where he has been a resident for many years.

He operates at the Orlando Health and Florida Hospital systems, as well as Florida Surgery Center in Altamonte. Dr. Papanicolaou also performs treatments requiring local anesthesia right here in the Lake Mary office.

A kind and caring office staff complements Dr. Papanicolaou’s careful attention and gentle demeanor. They are there to answer questions and offer support to new and returning patients alike.

Dr. Papanicolaou works hand-in-hand with an on-staff aesthetician at Soma Plastic Surgery. She performs a wide spectrum of skin enhancing procedures like facial rejuvenation, microneedling, PRP, LED light treatments, and peels. She also offers recommendations for skin care products.

If you are considering cosmetic surgery, don’t trust your results to anyone else. Visit Dr. Papanicolaou At Soma Plastic Surgery in Lake Mary for a consultation.
