Because of a terrible car crash in 1995, I have been unable to breathe correctly and I have not looked like myself for a long time. My breathing became unbearable and then I was so lucky to have found Dr. Summers. My rhinoplasty surgery has changed me so much. My breathing is so much better now and I finally have a bridge on my nose again. I used to think my lungs were not working properly. It is so amazing how much better I can breathe now. I am very happy about my nose, too. I have felt very ugly inside but never let it get me down or change me but now it feels good to look like my old self again. It’s a blessing that I met Dr. Summers and I am so very grateful that I was so lucky to have him as my surgeon. I found out that all the research I did on Dr. Summers is better than I expected…I found that he was the best around, but in my eyes’, he is the best ALL AROUND! Thank you! You have changed my life…

I just had my one year follow up appointment with Dr. Summers for my rhinoplasty. I couldn’t be happier with my results! My rhinoplasty was customized to suit my face and does not look “cookie cutter”. My nose looks very natural and suits my face significantly better did than the pre-op version. Dr. Summers is extremely talented and has a great eye for detail. He and his support staff were extremely professional and courteous through the entire process. The surgical facility is state-of-the-art, and extremely well maintained. Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Summers and would recommend him to anyone seeking rhinoplasty.

RHINOPLASTY AT MARYLAND PLASTIC SURGERY – Unlike older approaches, where a “cookie cutter” technique was used to give all patients the same nose, Dr. Summers utilizes techniques that makes the results of each rhinoplasty unique to the individual. The final outcome depends on patient desires as well as factors such as skin condition and thickness, nasal and facial structure, genetic contributions, and age. In general, having nose surgery provides the patient with a better facial balance and overall appearance. Dr. Summers uses special care to ensure each nose surgery patient achieves a well-balanced and proportionate nose. Dr. Summers is especially good with three dimensional procedures, like nose jobs, and he has even won several awards for his three dimensional medical illustrations. With a delicate hand and artistic-eye, Dr. Summers is considered by many to be one of the top rhinoplasty surgeons in the Baltimore-Annapolis region.
SLIDE THE SLIDER TO SEE BEFORE & AFTER
Two basic methods are utilized for cosmetic nose procedures…
- OPEN RHINOPLASTY
The open rhinoplasty technique allows for maximum visibility and control over the procedure. The incision used in the open technique is placed in-between the nostrils on the columella (the medial nostril strip).
- CLOSED RHINOPLASTY
In the closed rhinoplasty technique, the incisions are internal only – however, there is less surgical control over the outcome. In many cases this can be used to reduce a slight hump in the nose or to place an implant.
- Bring a better proportion to the nose and facial features
- Reduce the size of the nose that is too large or too wide
- Correct an overly arched or “Roman” nose
- Re-form a crooked or elongated nose tip
- Restore the nose if damaged from an accident or sports industry
- Help with breathing problems by rebuilding the nasal passage
- Treat nasal deformities caused at birth
NOTE: Dr. Summers also is an expert at NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY. To learn more about how Dr. Summers can improve your nose without surgery, and view before and after photos of his injection rhinoplasty results, click here.
Dr. Summers Says: “The nose is the center of the face, but it shouldn’t be the center of attention. When there is a bump in the middle of the nose, or the tip is enlarged, it can really detract from a person’s natural beauty. Bringing the nose into proportion gives people a tremendous sense of confidence and can be a truly life-changing event.”
