As many people age or experience significant transformations of their bodies, cosmetic surgery is often chosen to improve physical appearance and self-esteem. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 18 million people underwent surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States in the last few years, and that number continues to rise.

In years past, those seeking cosmetic surgery options had to travel hundreds of miles to a qualified surgeon. However, that is no longer the case. Dimitrios Danikas, MD, FACS, is a Pikeville Medical Center Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Danikas has a special interest in body contouring after massive weight loss, Botox & fillers, breast augmentation & reduction, breast reconstruction, endoscopic brow lifts, face lifts, liposuction, rhinoplasties, Brazilian Butt Lifts and tummy tucks.

“I work closely with each patient to determine a specific objective and come up with the best course of action to achieve the look they desire,” explained Dr. Danikas. “Patients who are choosing a provider for plastic or reconstructive surgery should seek a provider with a high volume of patients, experience and skill.”

Dr. Danikas is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

“It is common for people to feel the desire to improve their appearances,” explained Dr. Danikas. “Whatever the need, we would love the opportunity to discuss their options.”
