Fiala Aesthetics

Thomas Fiala, MD, FACS

"In plastic surgery, we get to do things that make people happier. When our patients are delighted with their results and their experience, that’s what makes it all worthwhile."

— Thomas Fiala, MD, FACS


Fiala Aesthetics is a full-service cosmetic practice, offering many popular surgical and non-surgical procedures. On the surgical side, Dr. Fiala is an expert in breast augmentation, lift and reduction; liposuction and tummy tuck; facial cosmetic procedures including eyelid, face and neck lifts; and laser resurfacing for sun damage and wrinkles. For patients having a facelift, tummy tuck, or mommy makeover, the practice offers the convenience of an overnight stay at their AAAASF-certified surgery center, with one-on-one nursing care by experienced RN’s.
Fiala Aesthetics also offers a full range of non-invasive services, including the latest generation of FDA-approved injectable fillers, Botox and Dysport; traditional facials, HydraFacials, and more. Injection Specialist Phi Nguyen, PA-C, has been recognized by Galderma as one of the top injectors in Florida. She’s known for her gentle touch and an artistic sense of facial proportions. Using micro-cannulas for injections, rather than traditional needles, also keeps pain and bruising to a minimum. Fiala Aesthetics is also one of the most experienced CoolSculpting practices in Central Florida, having offered the fat-melting technology for over 7 years.


Dr. Fiala’s office is one of only 3 sites in the nation investigating a new fat-melting laser, the Eon FR, a device that was designed here in Central Florida. Additionally, Dr. Fiala’s TAP block techniques, which make the recovery from a tummy tuck dramatically more comfortable, have been recognized as a “best practice” in several influential national plastic surgery publications.

WHAT SETS US APART: In addition to safely performing world-class cosmetic procedures, Dr. Fiala emphasizes patient education and excellent service. “It’s not just about the surgery,” says Dr. Fiala. “Our goal is to also give the patient and their family an excellent experience as they go through the entire process.” This dedication to quality is shared by the entire team, including our caring and experienced nurses, Board-Certified MD Anesthesiologists, PA and aestheticians.

SPECIALTY: In practice for over 20 years, Fiala Aesthetics is widely known for consistently excellent cosmetic plastic surgery of the face, breast and body, combined with five-star customer service. Dr. Fiala has been voted the top Plastic Surgeon in Orlando by Orlando Magazine readers five times in the past six years, and has won accolades from,, and other rating sites. He is a Past President of the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons, and a voluntary member of faculty at the UCF College of Medicine.
