Dr. Stephanides is a very kind and caring doctor. He spends an ample amount of time during the consultations, makes sure his patients know each and everything about their surgery. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and makes sure his patients feel comfortable and prepared. After surgery, he spends time making home visits and making sure his patients are happy with their outcome. He is truly an excellent doctor that I would recommend to anyone I know!

November 20, 2015 In 2011, at, age 67, I decided I wanted to have a facelift. I scheduled several initial consultations wth local Plastic Surgeons, however, I did not feel that their recommendations were in alignment with my goals. My third appointment was with Dr Michael Stephanides, who was recommended to me by my neighbor. I first researched his education and experience. I knew he graduated from Stanford University, and spent years practicing alongside Dr Orcutt, who, prior to retirement, was the premiere plastic surgeon in Nashville. We met for over an hour, but I knew right away that he was the Dr I wanted to do my surgery. First of all, he spent a great deal of time asking me what my goals were, and actually listening to my story. I was adamant that I was not interested in an exaggerated or "pulled and stretched" look. I wanted soft and natural results that made me look on the outside as good as I was feeling on the inside. He assured me that the surgery would look and feel natural and that he could achieve the results I wanted. He also met with my husband to ensure he was on board with the plan, and that I had his support. I can only say that the entire experience was everything I hoped for, and much much more. Including two house calls he made to check on me after my surgery! Wow! Everyone, including total strangers, are surprised to learn my age, even today, four years later. My son, who was 44 at the time of my surgery, said I looked more his age than mine. More important than looking younger, I looked refreshed, and still just like myself, only better. We were so satisfied with the results that two years later, another family member also decided to have Dr Stephanides do a complete facelift. Once again, perfect results, and complete satisfaction! We can't say enough about his professionalism, his relaxed and friendly manner, and his amazing surgery skills. We are very grateful we found Dr Stephanides, and would definitely return to him for any future needs. I have referred several acquaintances to him, and would encourage anyone contemplating surgery to meet him. Judi Blondell Hardy Nashville TN

I first met Dr.Stephanides when I had botched thyroid surgery--he did a wonderful job on my neck--since then have had other procedures done and recommended him to family members--we are all so pleased with our procedures--Dr. Stephanides is absolutely the best surgeon I have seen-- have many friends in Beverly Hills --their results cannot compare ---

Dr Stephanides is very caring and extremely professional. Knowledge in the business much better than others, He has corrected what another Doctor here in town left me with. The stitching is superbly done. The staff is caring and helpful and make you feel very comfortable. If having any Cosmetic Surgery in Nashville done this is the place to be if you really want satisfaction…….

It has been almost 4 years since I went to Dr. Stephanides to have what I thought would be surgery on my neck to have it tightened. The out-patient surgery he proceeded to do was devastating. He assured me he would fix it and I unwisely lived with it until letting him 'revise' it one year later. He made the same mistake again only with even more devastating results---my parotid duct was injured and leaked saliva that then digested fat tissue in my cheek. I should have sued him out of business but because he was so nice and charming, I haven't and won't. However I would never recommend him to anyone for surgery, especially facial surgery. I am now going to New York for a series of very expensive surgeries to repair and graft tissue back onto my face. It is starting to look more normal, but my face will always show the scars and trauma of these two extremely incompetent surgeries.

I really liked Dr. Stephanides at first and still do. But have not been please with my results at all. It's been over a year now. I had a mini tummy, butt trans and lipo and I can't tell any difference. He was suppose to take roll out of my butt and didn't. Now he will do it but want's me to pay for hospital he also didn't pull my skin tight enough in my stomach. I don't feel like I should have to pay for hospial or any of that because he's the one that didn't do what he was suppose to do. I have just been very dissapointed in my results and I did everything he ask. When surgery was over on his behalf he is a very caring Dr. I just havent been pleased with his work.....

Words cannot describe the fantastic experience I had with Dr. Michael Stephanides and his wonderful staff. Every aspect of his practice is beyond compare, the office visits were always timely (No waiting an hour in the waiting room!) His compassion for his patients is rare, he personally made house calls to check on me after my surgery (as well as he did for another friend that used him for her face lift). I cannot say enough about what a positive experience his practce is and I am thrilled with my results1
