5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Rising Top Dr. (Plastic Surgeon) In Washington, DC

I am 52 years old, and my jaw line was starting to droop, and was starting to have small folds around my mouth when I smiled....wanted a natural youthful look... I went forward with my minilift sugery, and Oh!! I love the end results. His work is outstanding, he provided me with everything that I wanted to accomplish for my facelift (a natural youthful look) and much more than I expected....

Flank and Outer Thighs - Chevy Chase, MD

Alway wanted to wear slim skirts and dresses, but had wide hips, big butt,Dr said leave butt alone,:-)said he got paid to do lots of butts, so we did Outer Thigh and Flank.

5 out of 5 stars Lipotherme

Lipotherme Done Today, Feeling Optimistic About Procedure and Results

I am a healthy and fit 5'8 male weighing in at 155 pounds. I do not think I needed liposuction nor would anybody I know ever say I needed it. However, I made the decision to have my abdomen and flanks done because I was NOT happy with the way in which pockets of fat would accumulate in these areas. The fat was not hard, but rather quite flabby and loose. I live a healthy lifestyle and do...

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Smartlipo - Flanks - Chevy Chase, MD

I am set to get smartlipo on Friday, 4/16. Judging by the prices of those getting multiple areas done, I think that I may be paying a bit much. However, that being said, I am very happy with the doctor I chose. Although I have yet to see the product of his work, he is very well qualified on paper. At the consultation, I felt completely at ease as he took his time explaining everything to me...

5 out of 5 stars Lipotherme

Decided to Give Lipotherme a Try (Lower Abdomen and Flanks)

Update:  December 7 Today is Monday, and I went back to work no problem after having the procedure done on Friday morning.  Surprisingly, the swelling hasn't really intensified much at all.  I expected to be much more swollen.  I am, however, extremely bruised - very dark purple around my lower abdomen and sides.  I'm using Arnica gel 2-3 times a day, which...

Best Surgeon, A+ - Chevy Chase, MD

I am in great shape, but could never quite achieve the look I wanted. It took me a long time and a lot of research before I finally settled on a Plastic Surgeon to perform Laser Lipo on me. I am 34, male, very athletic, but have never been able to obtain that ripped and shredded look. After the surgery, and an additional touch up surgery 3 months later, I have finally met my goals. I...

Laser Liposuction - Abdomen - Washington, DC

After a year of research and multiple consultation visits,I had this procedure on 4/18/2011. I'm a 53 year old professional in excellent health and physically fit. My doctor is the best who prepared and informed me of what was to happen. During the procedure he explained everything he was doing. The pain was bearable, after the procedure I walked out and into a waiting car. I had NO...

Finally Going Through with It. :-D - Boyds, MD

Let's see, Last year in January I signed up on this site and had planned to get the surgery in June, but to my husbands protest I actually began working out instead. You will see in the pictures the difference BUT NOW I am planning within the next month or two to get my surgery done. :-D A little about me; I'm a 24 year old married woman, I run a company during the week and I am a dancer...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck with lipo, DC Cosmetics Chevy Chase MD

This will be my second consult, different doctor. First doctor wanted to charge $10.392. Luckily a friend of mine told me about Dr. Khalifeh. After researching him & seeing his internet special of $7,750. He seems to be a perfectionist & that really eases my nerves. If a doctor is willing to throw in lipo at no cost to you so that YOU look great, thats my kinda doctor. Well my...

Excellent Doctor, Excellent Results. - Chevy Chase, MD

I'm a younger patient, a little on the thin side (5'7, 120 lbs) and had lipo on my inner and outer thighs a few years ago. At the time I really wanted to take care of my muffin top as well - nothing crazy but there was enough fat for me to pinch a handful on each hip. My PS said to wait and have it done in a few years. Fast forward two years later - I just had my muffin top taken care...
