5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I had septo-rhinoplasty with Dr. K in 2001. She is an incredibly talented, patient and compassionate physician. Her results were fantastic and people always compliment me on my "perfect" nose!

Dr Kontis took photos and measurements of me before the procedure and explained everything to me. She couldn't have been nicer and her staff was kind and caring. I was nervous about the anesthesia but the anesthesiologist went over everything with me and made me feel completely comfortable going forward.
5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation
So I've been thinking for a while about lip augmentation, checked thousands of webpages with reviews, pros and cons and doctors who can do it. Finally I found Dr Kontis and scheduled the day of consultation and treatment. I was a little scared and excited to get the procedure done. We discussed with doctor what I don't want my lips to be like duck's ones, and I want just to make it a little...

5 out of 5 stars Eye Bags Treatment
After a year of researching physicians in DC, MD, VA and NY I decided on Dr Kontis. Dr. Kontis and her staff had wonderful bedside manner, were super friendly and very knowledgeable. I'm extremely picky and an absolute perfectionist when it comes to my skin. I wanted the most natural results possible and I got exactly that. I opted to not have any numbing cream put on my face because my skin is very sensitive. The injections were painless for the most part with a bit of stinging from time to time, but nothing anyone couldn't handle. I was pretty swollen in my right eye more than my left, but the swelling died down in about 3 days. I also had two little bruises that took about 7 days to finally clear up. I also had a panic moment the second day because I could feel hardened knots where I had been injected, but this is very normal and it will soften and you wont be able to feel the restylane at all by day 5. (all of this is depending on your body and personal recovery time). You have to give it some time to see your full results. Dr. Kontis is incredibly skilled and gives you the results you are looking for I can't say enough great things about her and her staff. I couldn't be happier and my highest recommendation!

70 Years Old and I Have Relatively Smooth Skin Except for Some Deep Wrinkles Around my Eyes when I Smile - Baltimore, MD
Dr. Kontis is very professional and also a perfectionist. She strives to do the best job she can with all of her patients. In addition, she is compassionate, warm, and easy to talk to.
My passion is to help people feel better about themselves. I enjoy working with patients to develop a plan for meeting their aesthetic goals. I believe it is important to understand the aging process and combine both artistry with injectables as well as surgical skill to produce natural results.
