5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Could not be happier with my breast implants.

I was recommended to Dr. Gartside through a friend. I visited her office the first time to have Sculpsure done which she herself was the one who did the procedure. Dr. Gartside made me feel at ease during the procedure and her staffs were very nice, friendly, and made you feel at ease. For someone who has never done any procedure, I was happy with the process. I decided to get a breast...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Absolutely amazing plastic surgeon

Dr Gartside performed my breast reduction/reconstruction, along with the removal of a benign tumor. Dr Gartside was extremely supportive throughout the process and reassured me that I was in good hands. Dr Gartside is a gifted surgeon. The result of my reduction/reconstruction exceeded my expectations. Following my surgery, i also started botox treatments with Dr Gartside, and love the...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

LoVinG my BA/Lift and Lipo (Flanks/Abs) - 37yo, no kids, average shape

Dr. Gartside is outstanding and such an artist. She made me feel very comfortable and Christine, the manager of everything, is awesome. She calls to check in and is responsive to any email or phone call. The staff at the surgical center all know Dr. Gartside well, and they couldn't say enough good things about her when I was getting everything coordinated. Knowing she has such a great reputation with the medical staff even further solidified my comfort with her. It was a great experience from start to finish and I've already recommended her to friends.

5 out of 5 stars Lipoma Removal

Great Experience - Reston, VA

Dr. Gartside performed a similar surgery on jmy husband last year. He was very happy with the results. When I discovered I had lipoma, I decided to have the procedure done by Dr. Gartside, since our family trust her so much. If you want to have a procedure done, you are in "great hands".

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover Worth the Wait! - Mclean, VA

I learned about Dr. Gartside from the Northern Virginia Magazine as she's been rated amoung the top plastic and reconstructive surgeons in the area. The care and instructions provided were top-notch and the surgery proved to be all I could have hoped for.

Couldn't Be More Excited! - Reston, VA

Dr. Gartside made me feel confident in my choices and allowed time to discuss my options which is why I'm nothing but excited to have my breast augmentation in August. I will be the third sister in my family to have her as my surgeon and I know I'll be just as pleased as my other sisters have been.

4 out of 5 stars Liposculpture

At Ease and Understood - McLean, VA

Dr. Gartside was excellent. She was down to earth and very honest with me as to what needed to be done and what didn't. She was willing to take the time to put me at easy and explained all the potential problems so I would be able to make the best decision for me. The day of the surgery, she treated me like her own child and has very gentle with me. Two days after the procedure, I called with worry and she immediately put me at ease, saying it was normal and would go away at time. I highly recommend Dr. Gartside for any cosmetic procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

23 Year Old Breast Cancer Reconstruction Following Bilateral Mastectomy - Reston, VA

Exceeded all my expectations. Surgeon was very well qualified. Answered all my questions and did not treat me like it would be a cosmetic surgery unlike other surgeons. Discussed all options and decided on tissue expanders. She is a true godsend and has given me back much of what I lost. I am forever grateful for her expertise.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Changed My Lifestyle, for the Better! - Reston, VA

My GP recommended Dr. Gartside and I couldn't have been more pleased. Her impressive resume and experience speak for themselves, but her manner and professionalism really shine. She answers all questions and even addresses those topics you may forget to ask about. She put me at ease over what to expect post - op, with respect to pain, care and getting used to the new me. She absolutely understands how freeing a breast reduction can be for someone who has lived with large breasts, and the inherent consequences, for their entire life. Dr. Gartsides's office staff is terrific and made every effort to answer any questions I had about insurance. My overall experience was very positive and I would not hesitate to undergo this procedure again with Dr. Gartside.
