“My name is Dr. Effie Politis with Politis Plastic Surgery. I am 100% Greek, both my parents are Greek. They immigrated here in the 1970s,” she shares with an inflection of pride. Honoring her roots played a significant role not only in her personal life but also in her professional journey to become a plastic surgeon.

Love, Laughter, and A Strong Sense of Community

Dr. Politis narrates her story with an engaging warmth, drawing listeners into her vibrant and community-centered household.

The couple’s wedding, held right in the heart of Tampa, was a celebratory gathering of their families, friends, and even fellow residents and interns.

“We had some plate throwing and plate breaking and dancing around drinks and you know, setting the drinks on fire. We had the fire marshal come, so that was always fun,” Dr. Politis recalls. The recounting of these trademark Greek wedding practices paints a vivid picture of her connection to her roots, and her propensity for joy and celebration, qualities that continue to infuse her professional life.
