About Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is the practice of surgery to restore form and function to the body. Although popular culture and the media focuses on Hollywood plastic surgery, aesthetic procedures are becoming more commonplace in communities across the country. Today, many patients are searching for a cosmetic surgeon in Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia. Our goal is to educate our patients and provide honest guidance and technical excellence to achieve subtle and natural results.
Regardless if you are young or old, male or female, there are many reasons why you may be curious if plastic surgery is right for you. Plastic surgery is a diverse field of medicine, incorporating nearly all tissues of the body and blending the skills of science and artistry like no other specialty. Whether you are considering a facelift to restore your youth, a breast augmentation to balance your figure, or a functional rhinoplasty to improve your nasal air flow, we can help you decide if surgery is right to achieve your goals.
Choosing a Plastic Surgeon
Choosing a doctor is an important decision in your journey to find a plastic surgeon. In most major metropolitan areas, there are numerous choices and many qualified physicians. However, not all surgeons are the same. Look closely at each person's training background, and experience in the condition of interest. Is the surgeon board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery? Make sure you feel comfortable with the practice and staff as well as the physician. Is the doctor approachable and responsive to your concerns? Most importantly, do you trust your plastic surgeon and feel that he/she has your best interest? These thoughts are important considerations when trying to differentiate between many different doctors who all seem to blend together.
