  • I wanted a more proportionate body. I was a size 12 on top and 6 on the bottom. With a DD cup size I appeared to be on the heavy side and only wore loose tops. I am now wearing dresses off the rack and feel wonderful about my new look. This change has provided me with the ability to wear all types of tops including strapless and halters. My posture has improved since I don't have the weight and strain on my shoulders and back that I lived with for many years. I receive compliments daily. Many think I have loss weight. That's one of the many benefits of breast reduction and lift. It's a life changing procedure. I only wished I had done this years ago.

  • My experience with Dr. Williams was fantastic! He's extremely thourough, professional and has a wonderful bedside manner. I've been bothered by the puffiness under my eyes and decided to have lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Williams was highly recommended and now I know why, I love my results! I don't have anyone telling me how tired I look, and my results are completely natural. I would highly recommend Dr. Williams, he's very talented and I loved the fact that he specializes in just the face. I can't thank Dr. Williams and his staff enough for making this a wonderful experience for me!

  • I was referred to Dr Williams by some of the staff at my dermatologist office who have had plastic surgery with him. I came in for a consult and felt at home. He is so genuine, and truly cared about what was best for me. Not to mention that he had years of experience doing only facial surgery! I knew I was in good hands and trusted him and his staff. I had a face and neck lift and my results are amazing, I'm so happy that I chose him as my surgeon, it's a big decision and I would recommend Dr. Williams to all who are considering.

  • My experience was exceptional in every way. I have had both filler and BOTOX treatments with Dr. Pontius in the past and then circumstances ( going to FLA in the winter) lead me to go somewhere else for my last treatment. My results are consistently better and more natural with Dr. Pontius at The Williams Center / Rejuva Center. My husband says I look 15 years younger and to keep doing...

    I am writing you this note to say thank you very much for helping me with my nose problems. At first I was nervous about being operated on, but you have helped ease my tensions.

I am looking forward to my operation.

    Thank you for restoring my faith in doctors.
    Online Patient Review
  • "I HAD EVERY CONFIDENCE IN YOUR ABILITIES"

    Because hearing about your outstanding surgical skills preceded my meeting you, I had every confidence in your ability to correct my nose. However, equally as important, was the extremely gracious and caring way that you and your staff dealt with my fears and anxiety, which were greatly exaggerated as a result of a previous harrowing experience (by another physician).

  • "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. BT Albany NY

  • "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.

  • "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.

  • "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 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.

  • "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.

  • "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!

  • "I am very grateful!"

    The only Dr. I would allow to work on my face is Dr.Edwin Williams. Truly, he is a genius at his profession and he is an authentic, compassionate person. I KNEW that I was in the best hands there were. Dr. Williams staff is “top notch” . They are perfect in each of their roles. I felt safe, secure, and confident with each of them. I am 66 yrs young and had a full face lift. I sit here today appx. five weeks post surgery and I feel completely healed. I could not be more pleased with my results. Although it takes some courage to pursue this surgery, it was made MUCH easier because of my total trust in Dr Williams. I do and will continue to recommend others to Dr. Williams and only Dr. Williams. I am very grateful!!!

  • Dr. Williams is a master of his craft, certainly the most compassionate surgeon I have met during this journey.

  • I had a rhinoplasty done 16 years ago by another surgeon and was never truly happy with the results. I looked a lot better than I had before, but I was still self conscious. One day I saw a profile photo of myself at a wedding and realized it was time to look into a revision. I met with Dr. Williams because I had heard he was a great surgeon and years earlier, he helped my sister after a serious car accident and she looks amazing! I was hesitant of course because I didn't look that bad, but I wanted a change. Dr. Williams was very patient and honest. He met with me 3 times and took his time explaining what was realistic and what he would recommend and listened to what I wanted too. What really put my mind at ease was their imaging program that takes your photo and then shows you what you will look like after surgery! It's not a guarantee mind you but it definitely helps give you an idea. As for the results, I am very pleased. I was afraid I wouldn't look like myself, but I do, just better. Plus, my results really do look very similar to the imaging program picture, it's amazing. I think what sets Dr. Williams apart is that he pays attention to detail, and for my case, made minor changes that really made a difference.
