5 out of 5 stars Nose Surgery
Dr. Price is an excellent surgeon, extremely knowledgeable and a real artist. He did an excellent job, it is very natural. It was only a month ago, but I already look and feel 20 years younger. I have to be patient, it will look even better. I have been wanting to do the nose surgery for a very long time and over the years, I interviewed many different surgeons. I hesitated because of the...
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Dr. Price is an artist and a pro. Dr. Price worked with the structure of my face and made me more attractive. The result is elegant and very natural. Everyone says: " you look terrific, did you get a new haircut?" I look and feel 20 years younger, I had minimal discomfort and almost no bruises. It was only a month ago, so I am still a bit inflamed and I am hopeful it will get even better....

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal
Dr. price augmented my breadt and dud eye surgery. I am very pleased with the results. He is very very good. I did loose sensation in my breast but that is a known complication . I would do it again and with the same dr. He made my eyes very pretty.
4 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
I was referred to Dr. Price through a friend who had a breast augmentation. Dr. Price was very kind and had a great bedsie manner. He answered any question I had but I felt on multiple occasions I had to keep asking the same questions because I was unsure he and I were not on the same page. I am overall happy with his work but have three things I'm not entirely happy with. First, is regarding my lift. I wish I could have been lifted higher than I am but was told it's not as high as I would like because I have a low chest to begin with. I also do not like the scars left from the breast lift. I am Asian and I know I am at risk for these scars but have my doubts and wonder if I should have just got the breast augmentation only. Lastly, I do wish I could have gone bigger in cup size. I was talked out of my initial size because the nurse who performed by pre-op said the large size I wanted who not look good on me. In addition, Dr price wanted to put the implants under the muscle to give it a more naturally look but I really did care if you could tell if they looked fake and was open to having them placed on top of the muscle but Dr. Price only performs underneath. But, I can live with these minor problems and hopefully Dr. Price will do scar restoration on me in the future. I would have him perform work on me again.

Dr. Price is a gifted surgeon. In addition to being a patient, I have had the privilege to assist him in surgery. He has impeccable judgement and his talent is outstanding .
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
51 Yo with 2 Children, 36AA Pre-op, Slightly Prominent Sternum, BA in Two Days - 275-300cc Silicone - Washington DC
Dr. Price is super knowledgeable, incredibly experienced and very kind. He listened to what I wanted and did not push anything. I did not want to go too big - wanted a natural look that would allow me to exercise etc. and not be too noticeable. I opted for 275 cc silicone under the muscle. (If I had wanted to go bigger, he would have accommodated me.) The office was able to fit me into his schedule very quickly. I called on a Wednesday, went in for a consultation on Thursday, signed the papers on Friday and had my surgery on Monday. (I had already had a mammogram and a full physical before this, so I was ready to go.) I felt that I was in excellent, experienced hands. His staff was very helpful and answered all my questions. Their surgical facility was pleasant and very different from the feel of a hospital. I came to Dr. Price because a friend had also had a successful augmentation with him. They also had a special "Augs in August" which discounted the usual price of an augmentation from $7,000 to $6,500. The office supplies bras for the first month. PS One important note - I had visited a PS prior to Dr. Price who had given me parameters for the augmentation for my frame and desired outcome (200-300cc max.) I really did appreciate having that kind of guidance and used the first PS's assessment when I went to Dr. Price to guide my own choice. I think that I benefitted from the first PS's guidance and might have gone bigger with Dr. Price than I did had I not done the first assessment. The reason I ended up choosing Dr. Price is that he has more surgical experience than the first PS, was able to fit me into his schedule promptly, and was $400 less expensive. I have seen many examples where women have gone too big and they have had problems afterward. I really liked that the first PS was willing to give me his professional sense of what would look good on my frame.
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Doctor Price met all of the criteria I wanted in a doctor: knowledgable, experienced, qualified, honest, careful, conservative, and accurate.
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
I did extensive research of the procedure and the best doctors in the area. Dr. Price consistently was listed as one of the top docs in the area and the country. He also listed high on customer satisfaction I went to see 4 surgeons in the area and I felt the most comfortable with the doctor, staff, and location of the clinic. 22Jan2015 - after nearly two years I am not happy with the results. The swelling completely went away after nearly 18 months. What I am left with are under eye wrinkles and smaller bags. I was at the clinic for a filler to see if that would help and the nurse asked me if I would consider a Bleph. Really? is it that bad that the staff think I need a surgery I already had? I am considering going back for a revision, but do not want to have to pay again and take all the time off again.
4 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I researched local doctors that live close to me and the first doctor that popped out to me and I was able to schedule a consult with was this practice. The name drew me in "Center for Plastic Surgery" so I knew they specialized in it. The staff was really great and helpful and not pushy. Their office was very nice and modern it just made you feel like they were artists of the body. They were just very on top of everything from the beginning and I was comfortable from the start so I went with my instinct. They gave me a great discount because I worked for another physician (not in the same field) which I thought was very courteous. Not to mention as I was walking out from my consult another patient stopped to talk to me and she told me that Dr. Price had did her tummy tuck 13 years ago and she showed me her tummy and she looked fabulous. She seemed very happy with the practice as well so that's how I picked my practice.
