    “I provide individualized, compassionate care to patients while prioritizing honesty, ethics, and safety in a warm, comfortable, and welcoming environment where I help patients achieve their goals and give them results that enhance their natural beauty.” 

    Dr. Georgios Ziakas is a plastic surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery. Growing up in Greece, he was inspired to become a physician while surrounded by close family and friends who were well-established and recognized practitioners in the medical field. Upon graduating from the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in 1996, he moved to the United States where he trained, completed his residency, and began his career as a surgeon.

    In addition to being inspired by his patients, Dr. Ziakas is also inspired by his family and network of close friends who provide him with unconditional love and support in his professional, personal and educational pursuits.
