Entire process was phenomenal! From the consult where all my questions were answered, to appointment scheduling, to the staff and nurses, to Dr. Summers compassion and exemplary skills as a surgeon.

I went to multiple Plastic Surgeons wanting lower eyelid surgery to get rid of intense under eye wrinkles when I smiled. They all said that I didn’t have enough skin for lower eyelid surgery, and they refused to do it on the grounds they all felt it would permanently pull my lower lid down and not help the wrinkles anyway. And that I had to “live with it.” Prior laser treatments did not diminish the wrinkles either, so I was out of options until I found Dr. Adam Summers. He disagreed with the other Plastic Surgeons, and guaranteed it would not permanently pull my lower lid down. He did the upper lids, lower lids, and an upper cheek lift for a great price and I am thrilled with the results. My eyelid is not pulled down and the wrinkles are gone! Just as importantly, the reason I would also recommend Dr. Summers as unlike Plastic Surgeons I’ve had surgery with in the past, he cared just as much for me and my endless questions or concerns postop as he did before I paid him. He even told me preop that if any wrinkles remained he would stand by his work and get rid of them for free. That is the mark of a truly great Plastic Surgeon. I’d also like to acknowledge Melinda, office manager, the nurses and all the staff for going over and above with great customer service. I’m a fan for life!

Dr. Summers was recommended to me by a friend who had breast implants and a tummy tuck at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. She was delighted with the results. When she learned that I was interested in some facial work, she immediately told me that the best cosmetic surgeon in town is Adam Summers. She showed me the work he had done for her and I couldn’t believe how incredible she looked. I couldn’t even find her scars. I asked around some more and it turns out that Dr. Summers has quite a reputation for facelift surgery and is one of the few real experts for injections around the face. After my visit with him today, I had to let everyone know that if you are interested in any type of cosmetic procedure or surgery, you MUST visit Dr. Summers at his beautiful medical spa. He offers a complimentary appointment and was right on time. He spent an entire hour with me reviewing my concerns. Although it was late in the day and I know he had been working all day, he was kind and funny (and cute!) and made me feel very comfortable. I had some injections done and I look great. No, I look better than great! Truly, I’m thrilled with the results. This was the first time I had ever had anything done, and Dr. Summers made sure I was comfortable and that it was painless and that I looked just the way I wanted!

Thinking about getting more fat transfer to my bottom.

I am a 35 year old mother of two children. Currently, I am working for a life insurance company via telecommunication. I would like to thank Dr. Adam Summers for having the opportunity to have this procedure. My breast augmentation and breast lift procedure turned out absolutely beautiful. I cannot describe how much better I feel about myself and the self-esteem I have gotten since my surgery. The results are simply amazing.

I was a size six and wanted to be at least a size four. After my laser liposuction procedure I am down to a size two! I am very happy with the results!

I have always been “shy” about my breast size…or lack there of…and had wanted implants from early on. After 3 children I still had no breasts and finally decided to “bite the bullet”. I had my procedure done in May of 2005 at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center and loved, loved, loved the results… A couple months ago (and 4 years after my initial augmentation) I noticed some almost immediate volume decrease in my left breast. I called Dr. Summers office and his staff promptly set me up an appointment to check it out. Within less than a week I was back on the table having my implant replaced (at no cost to me) and it had turned out to be a defect in the implant valve. Dr. Summers was as amazing with my replacement implant as he was with the initial implant…which concerned me initially as I wrongly assumed that since it was covered under the warranty that I would not be as much of a “priority” as “paying” clients. I was certainly wrong about that aspect as Dr. Summers was more than willing to resolve my issue as quickly as possible. I am contemplating liposuction or maybe a tummy tuck… When I decide to do it Dr. Summers will be my first choice!! For anyone out there contemplating a procedure…set yourself up a consult with Dr. Summers…you will walk out of his office with confidence in him as your surgeon as well looking forward to a date for your procedure…what are you waiting for?– Lutisha Verified TrueReview®

Breast development in a man, technically known as gynecomastia, is frequently a source of embarrassment. Dr. Summers can perform a variety of different procedures at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center to alleviate this problem. The excess breast tissue can develop at any time after the beginning of puberty. Some young men (teenagers) find that they are unable to participate in social activities without being teased. Even older, self-confident men are prone to dislike the appearance of their chest if excess breast tissue and/or skin is present.

A male breast reduction procedure at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center can usually be performed through a small incision high in the under-arm. Through this incision, Dr. Summers performs tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction to remove much of the excess tissue. Once healing is complete the scar is usually completely obscured by hair, so there may be no sign that the condition had ever existed.

Occassionally, dense breast tissue is present which cannot be removed by liposuction alone. In this case, an incision around the areola may be utilized to remove some of the excess dense breast tissue. Again, because many men have hair on their chest, this incision may be completely hidden.

In cases where men have experienced significant weight loss and there is excess skin hanging from the chest, a breast reduction procedure may be required to smooth the appearance of the chest. Although the resulting scars may be visible when shirtless, the ability to wear clothing without having folds of skin showing through the clothing presents a reasonable trade-off for many men.

Male gynecomastia breast reduction surgery typically costs between $3,000 – $7,000 at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. The variability in price reflects the different breast reduction techniques which Dr. Summers utilizes – the specific technique which will be used for your breast reduction will be discussed at the time of your evaluation.

The fees include all of the following: facility fee at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center, anesthesia with a board certified anesthesiologist, surgeon’s fee, and all office visits.

The only other expenses you will incur are pharmacy related for prescription medications (antibiotics and pain medication) and laboratory related for routine blood tests prior to your breast reduction surgery. Patients who are over 40 years of age or who have pre-existing medical conditions will also need to have a medical clearance, which includes an EKG and additional bood tests.

In addition to performing male breast reduction surgery, Dr. Summers offers other body procedures at his Baltimore cosmetic surgery center. Please visit these pages to learn how Dr. Summers helps Baltimore tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast implants and buttock lift patients.
