FotoFacial at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center Medical Spa…
Photo Rejuvenation uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to create younger, healthier, more radiant skin. The procedure is frequently referred to as a “FotoFacial” or “FotoFacial-RF” treatment and it usually requires no recovery time and causes little or no discomfort after treatment. The procedure can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
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.

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.
Dr. Summers was highly recommended to me from two friends who had been his patients in the past. I was not disappointed. He made me feel comfortable from the moment I met him. His calm demeanor and knowledge set my mind at ease that he would give me the best results possible. Many women get plastic surgery for various reasons and when I explained my reasons to him, he was non-judgemental and caring. He was very helpful in educating me on the silicone implants that I chose and I trusted that he was going to be the best doctor to do my breast augmentation. My overall experience of plastic surgery was excellent. I have more self-confidence and a better body image thanks to him!

Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations and none of my fears about having cosmetic surgery came true. The results were completely natural looking–as though the clock had been set back many years and while the before and after results were substantial, the overall effect was just right and nobody even asked whether I had any “work” performed on my face. I am most happy about the fact that the double chin, which I’d had for my entire life, is now gone and I have an actual jaw line.
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
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 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 wanted to take a moment to thank you for your kindness, support and relaxed demeanor over the past several months. You made me feel at ease about my surgery. In the operating room I remember you holding my hand as I was “put to sleep”. As you said, combined surgeries add time, this can create more nausea, prolonged recovery and higher risk of infection. In 6 hours, you performed a breast reduction, abdominoplasty, and liposuction. My recovery although difficult as you said, was uneventful. Six months later, I am so happy, so trusting in you with what I have seen, that I am now considering a lower body lift.
How does Photo Rejuvenation work?
Younger skin contains more collagen than older skin, and photo rejuvenation uses laser pulses of light to encourage your body to form new collagen. The result is firmer and smoother skin. Unlike laser resurfacing, photo rejuvenation requires no recovery time and is a much more gentle procedure. Dr. Summers will help you to determine the best treatment to achieve your desired results.
