About Dr. Nicholas J Economides MD
Dr. Nicholas J Economides has 2 locations
Dr. Nicholas J Economides has the following 3 specialties
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Skin Graft and Tummy Tuck
Self-verified patient of Dr. Nicholas J Economides - Posted on January 31st, 2019
I was treated post-skin graft surgery that was infected, primary care treated with anti-biotic but Dr. Economides immediately recognized it as fungal. Competent fellow. My wife had to have a tummy tuck a year after gastric bypass surgery because she had lost 100 pounds (yeah) and Dr Economides patched her up nicely. This was at Holzer Clinic in Ohio where he practiced for a number of years; you folks in the Memphis area are fortunate to have such a brilliant surgeon, our loss up here in the Ohio River Valley.

Cyst removed from cheek did not heal properly. More than a year after the surgery, I am still expressing sebaceous (sp?) discharge from the site. As a result, I am led to believe that something "at the core" was never completely removed. For this, I was charged in excess of $1,000. Caveat emptor.
