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.

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!

I have known Dr. Stefan for over fourteen years and my experience with him and his staff has been outstanding.  I was extremely satisfied with my breast augmentation he preformed almost 14 years ago. I recently returned to Dr. Stefan to have a reaugmentation. Dr. Stefan is a very skillful, knowledgable, and caring doctor. He is absolutely amazing and does incredible work. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an exceptional plastic surgeon.

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.

My nurse has been the best I could ever ask for, she really did a great job explaining and going over everything with me and my husband. The staff is very thorough from checking in to accommodating each patient for follow up appointments. The facility is very clean, quiet, and comforting. Thank you all so much!! I would recommend using Dr. Summers and staff to anyone interested in this type of cosmetic surgery.

I am 5’6″ tall with long blond, curly hair. I work for a real estate company in Maryland as a Lease Administrator. Prior to that, I worked for a Minnesota Senator on Capitol Hill. Even though I work out at the gym frequently, I had a few problem areas, which would not go away. Thanks to Dr. Summers’ cosmetic surgery team at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center, I’ve had liposuction on my outer thighs, hips and stomach. Now my saddlebags are gone and I was able to buy a pair of hip hugger jeans! I’ll be 45 next month and will almost wear a size 6. I’m planning to return to have my inner thighs done very soon.

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.
