Rhinoplasty

I came to Dr. Williams to have my nose done. Ever since I was 12 I hated the way it looked. I was embarassed of myself in pictures. I hated to look in the mirror. Now that I've had my nose done by Dr. Williams, I absolutely love it. It's a natural shape. I'm so happy, I'm more confident, I'm not embarased when I see photos of myself. Dr. Williams' work is superior. On top of it, I can breathe better now, and I would do it again in a heartbeat." -L.F.

Repaired ab separation

"I highly recommend Dr. Polynice. I'm a health care provider and asked around about who was the best plastic surgeon in the area. Many people pointed me to Dr Polynice including other surgeons. He is kind with an excellent bedside manner and also is highly surgically skilled. He fixed a very severe diastasis recti that I had and his work is flawless. He is amazing and so is his nurse Mimi. The surgery was life changing and I can't thank him enough!" - R.

Facelift

"After meeting with 5 plastic surgeons in the upstate New York area over the course of 2 years, I decided to book a consult with Dr. Williams. I had seen his results and read reviews of his work, spoke to other medical professionals who knew his reputation, and thoroughly vetted his credentials before even meeting with him. Dr. Williams did my neck and lower face lift with fat grafts. I am thrilled with the results- natural looking but refreshed." -D.M.

Rejuva center - non-surgical

"I started at the Rejuva Center for non-surgical stuff like Botox for those wrinkles around my forehead and eyes, juvederm and restylane for my lip, and of course laser hair removal for my lip and chin. I never looked OVERDONE. They pride themselves on that! Most people never notice except to say "WOW you look good!" I am so pleased and I might have to actually say overjoyed with my extended weekend lift and chemical peel. It's making this month's birthday a lot easier to celebrate!" - M.M.

Breast lift, fat transfer, thigh lift

"Dr. Polynice was recommended to me by another physician, for which I am very grateful. My entire experience with this practice from my first consultation to post-op visits has been nothing less than positive. I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Dr. Polynice is an incredible artist, perfectionist & a very kind and caring humanitarian. I would most definitely schedule another procedure with Dr. Polynice and I highly recommend his practice to anyone and everyone!" -P.W.

"To Dr. Williams, Sue, Rose, Shannon, Jennifer, and Veronica and the others @ the Rejuva Center Desk. I am one happy camper. I won the October Botox and could never afford this on my own (redacted for privacy). I am so happy and blessed because I'm not wanting to age without some kind of "fight". You afforded me the possibility to feel really excited as the price of Botox was a pipe dream. Everyone there is a professional obviously held to high standards and are helpful and kind. The wait time isn't crazy at the center and everyone is so nice and professional. I can't imagine picking a better med. group and one who respects my privacy!!"

"I just wanted to send my gratitude to the amazing support staff at Williams! Everyone from the office staff, to the OR staff and Dr. Polynice & his team were incredible to work with. Even when a surgery is elective, it can be scary but I wasn't nervous for one minute! All my questions were answered before I asked them, and you all took extra special care of me on procedure day! I wish you all the happiest of holidays, & an even better 2018!"

"You shared your amazing qualities with me"

Dr. Polynice,

I do not know how to say thank you or how to tell you that you changes my life. I am unsure how to really put my feelings into words.

When I met you 1 year ago on my birthday 07-07-2015 I knew I had finally met my surgeon.

Your entire team; everyone was so kind and professional but Dr. Polynice you… you have a soul that fills the room. You are confident, kind, talented, sincere. You take your time with each individual person as if they are your only patient.

Dr.Polynice you changed me, not just my physical appearance with my tummy tuck, leg & arm lift but at a time in my life when I was emotionally struggling with the sudden loss of my mother, followed shortly after with the passing of my granny. You gave me comfort for the very first time ever in my life, in my own skin. You gave me confidence & pride. You shared your amazing qualities with me and I cannot thank you enough!

I cannot thank your entire staff enough.

Dr. Polynice, from the bottom of my heart & soul, thank you!

Megan

"I am so happy with the results"

This procedure was very easy and it’s only been 3 months since it was done! When my arms are in a normal position the incision lines are not visible at all. I can wear short sleeves now without feeling self conscious. I am so happy with the results. Thank you Dr. Polynice ML from Averill Park

"I am very happy with the outcome"

It is three months today since Dr Williams performed a blepharoplasty and mid-face fat fat transfer for me, and I am very pleased with the results. I look younger and rested in a natural way. There was a slightly swollen appearance for about two months, as I was advised there would be, but I easily camouflaged that by wearing glasses. Now at the three month mark, every day seems to bring better results. I am very happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Dr Williams and his helpful staff.

"My experience was excellent"

As an esthetician, I am pleased with what my good skin care has accomplished for me and my clients. However, skin care is just that, and won’t reverse the toll of age on fat and muscle placement. Profile photos of me revealed that I looked older than my years.

After a consultation with Dr. Edwin William’s and his talented staff, I decided to have the “Weekend” neck lift. It would address my neck and lower jawline area.

My experience was excellent. The surgery was performed early in the morning, and I was home by lunch time and quite comfortable.

I did exactly what I was instructed to do, experienced very little discomfort and in two weeks was back to work. Most people thought I had a wonderful vacation and remarked I looked rested. It’s been a couple of months since my procedure, and the compliments keep coming!

We deserve to be happy and anything we can do to look and feel our best adds to our quality of life. Thank you so much Dr. Williams!

"I am so glad I did this procedure"

Every morning when I looked at myself in the mirror, it looked as though I had absolutely no sleep at all. The bags under my eyes were horrible and have bothered me for more years than I can remember. Time after time I was hearing from others that I looked tired so I finally made a decision to take care of it. I scheduled an upper and lower blepharoplasty and what a difference it made. Now I feel better about my appearance and have not had any “you look tired” comments since. The procedure was quick and easy with just a short healing time. I am so glad I did this procedure and couldn’t be happier with the work of Dr. Williams and his staff at the Williams Center.

"You treated me with respect"

“When I was 15 years old, I was depressed and embarrassed by the size of my nose. I begged my mother daily to allow me to have a Rhinoplasty. My mother would give me permission for a Rhinoplasty if I researched the surgery, prices and found a doctor. I hand wrote letters to all the doctors in the area. Of all the tons of letters I wrote, only one relied-Dr. Williams.

He treated me with respect and warmth regardless of my age. Dr. Williams performed the surgery and I’ve never been happier. It’s now eleven years later and I’ve referred many people that were all happy with the results.

I work as a healthcare Practitioner along side many doctors and Dr. Williams remains the most compassionate professional doctor I’ve met.” Sonya, Albany, New York

"You certainly live up to your name"

“Dear Mary Ann,

Enclosed is the survey you mailed out in March. I am truly sorry it has taken so long to return. When I was watching the videos, while waiting to see Dr. Williams last week, I realized how warm and caring Dr. Williams is. He has helped so many people either with cosmetic procedures or surgeries but most of all the children who needed some kind of reconstructive surgery. That is what prompted me to come here and fill the survey out.

Honestly, this survey didn’t even come close in giving credit to this fabulous facility. The comfort you provide people is beautiful and warm. The consultation is accurate with both the nurse and Dr. Williams both agreeing on what procedure will benefit you the most. Having the operating room there is the best part because no one likes to come out of the hospital for a cosmetic procedure.

Having the Center (Williams Rejuva Center) downstairs is so great, knowing Dr. Williams is part of that and having skin care products there is all so convenient. I am sop pleased I discovered the Williams Center for Excellence. You certainly live up to your name.”
