A rash indicates an abnormal change in skin color or texture. Rashes are usually caused by skin inflammation, which can have many causes.Although most rashes are not life-threatening, some rashes can signal something more serious. Let us take care of that rash for you.

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!

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.

What a joy it has been to have become a patient of yours. I came to you in mid 2013 after having initial consultations with two other plastic surgeons.  Having very specific and complicated surgeries in mind with limited time and finances, I was fairly sure that I would once again be disappointed. However, it was during that first meeting that I decided you would be my doctor.I have very much appreciated the extra time and effort that you spend talking with me, learning about my life, planning my procedures, listening to my concerns, both physical and financial, and then miraculously making my dreams come true!It is rare to find a person these days, especially in the field of medicine, who, as I put it, ‘doesn’t have his hand on the door knob’ the whole time that you are in his office. Furthermore, to find someone as dedicated to his or her craft and committed to the well being, safety and happiness of another person is incredible.

I am 30 years old and had a breast augmentation with Dr. Summers at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. The pre-operative details, surgical procedure and post-operative care are excellent. I couldn’t have asked for better treatment from even the President’s staff! My experience is one that I’ll remember, never regret and wish I had done it sooner.

Dear Dr. Summers, I can’t thank you enough for what you have given me…You have given me much more than a facelift. You have given me a spirit lift, a lift for my soul and heart. Is it possible to operate on one’s soul? I feel that you have. You put in much more than sutures… you have added a lightness, a joi de vivre, and, perhaps more importantly, a thrill of adventure and self-appreciation that years of psychiatric help would fail to accomplish – and all of this flows to my family and friends and those around me. Critics of plastic surgery fail to take this into consideration. My facelift has given me the freedom to concentrate on others without fear or self-consciousness of my looks (or lack of). As humans, sometimes it’s hard to look past outer beauty to see the beauty inside of all of us… Thank you for one less worry!

This was my second major procedure with Dr Summers, having had a major tummy tuck in 2005 with which I was thrilled! The breast lift and aug was as pain-free as possible, I was prepped accordingly with information, risks and self-care…and when a fear arose afterwords that I wasnt healing in the manner I THOUGHT I should be, Dr Summers put my mind at ease immediately, as did the entire staff, by giving me the facts I needed to proceed with confidence.

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!

A rash indicates an abnormal change in skin color or texture. Rashes are usually caused by skin inflammation, which can have many causes.

Why Should I have Rashes Treated

A rash is a noticeable change in the texture or color of your skin. Your skin may become scaly, bumpy, itchy, or otherwise irritated.

 

Most rashes are not dangerous. Many rashes last a while and get better on their own. It is therefore not unreasonable to treat symptoms like itchy and/or dry skin for a few days to see whether the condition gets milder and goes away.

Some rashes persist or becomes more widespread. There are many, many other types of rashes. So, it is especially important, if you have any questions about the cause or medical treatment of a rash, to reach to us immediately.

 

Here are some symptoms that may arise along with your rash if left untreated

  • increasing pain or discoloration in the rash area
  • tightness or itchiness in the throat
  • difficulty breathing
  • swelling of the face or extremities
  • fever of 100.4°F or higher
  • confusion
  • dizziness
  • severe head or neck pain
  • repeated vomiting or diarrhea
  • joint pain
  • a sore throat
  • a fever slightly above 100.4°F
  • red streaks or tender areas near the rash

 

What to expect

Your dermatologist will perform a physical exam and inspect your rash. Expect to answer questions about your:

  • rash
  • medical history
  • diet
  • recent use of products or medications
