5 out of 5 stars Botox

The best!

Love Dr. Somenek! Besides his professionalism and attentiveness, he is so talented and detailed in his work. He truly cares about his patients and their desires. I would highly recommend him for both invasive and non invasive procedures.

First Time Dysport

Amazing and he totally listened to all my concerns

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

5 Star Doctor!

Dr. Somenek is absolutely wonderful. He does not try to do anything more than is necessary for your situation. He explains the procedures well, is knowledgeable and makes you feel very comfortable. I had a facial scar from a traumatic event 7 years ago and Dr. Somenek performed a scar revision to minimize the look of the scar. I put the procedure off for a number of reasons, but mainly because...

Great experience with Dr. Somenek

I recently had my tear troughs, which were deep and dark, injected by Dr. Somenek. He alleviated any fears that I had prior to the treatment, and had a very calm, unrushed bedside manner. He was gentle and did not cause any bruising or swelling...remarkably!! I had done a lot of research, and understood that this area is very tricky to inject, and should only be done by someone with...

5 out of 5 stars Juvederm

Absolutely love it

Dr Somenek is awesome. As you can see I had a very thin upper lip. My result looks natural but it still improved my overall look tremendously. He took the time to explain all my options and was very gentle with the injections. I also had Botox injected into the muscle on both sides of my mouth to help with my down turned smile. I plan to see him again for all my facial cosmetic needs...

Amazing Experience!

I see Dr. Somenek for Botox injections between my eyebrows (11's as they call them) and I cannot say enough about his skill and talent. I absolutely love my results every time! I highly recommend him.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Highly recommend!

Dr. Somenek removed a benign skin growth on my face a few weeks ago. Naturally I was a bit anxious about a potential scar on my cheek but Dr. Somenek made me feel very much at ease with his compassionate and professional manner. All went very well and his post procedure instructions were clear. I appreciated his conscientious effort, and found the rest of the staff, namely Mary, Sharonda...

5 out of 5 stars Kybella

Kybella, Treatments - Washington, DC

I recommend Dr. Somenek and West End Plastic Surgery. From check in to check out, everyone who works there is friendly and professional. Dr. Somenek took his time to explain the procedure to me and gave me realistic expectations about the pain and the recovery time. At each follow up visit, he was interested in hearing about my recovery. I would not hesitate to come here again.

5 out of 5 stars Restylane

I never looked better - Washington, DC

Dr. Somenek is an incredible doctor who has an extreme talent when it comes to injectables. Dr. Somenek explained everything he was doing while he was injecting. Not only did this make me feel at ease about the procedure, but it educated me as well. He even spent extra time in the room after the treatment to further explain certain parts of the procedure that he did. I felt like I was unique...

Turn the Frown Upside Down - Washington, DC

I absolutely love, love Dr. Somenek! My first consultation with him was so comfortable, it was like we had been friends forever! He sat down with me (face to face) at eye level. It created an ease in discussing my concerns, like a friend helping friend. My resting face is becoming more and more sad face and unapproachable and the "jowls" are slightly beginning to form. He discussed a procedure...
