Titan Skin Tightening

Titan Skin Tightening at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Medical Spa…

The Titan procedure is effective at stimulating the production of new collagen. Using the Titan infrared device, collagen in the treatment area is gently heated, resulting in contraction (shrinkage) of the collagen strands and stimulation of new collagen fibers.

Optimal results have been obtained with multiple treatments. Typically, we recommend a series of 4-5 treatments spaced about 2 weeks apart.

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 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®

I am a 33 year old mother of three and I’ve wanted to have breast augmentation surgery for several years. I went from a large C-cup size to less than a A-cup after have my third child, but two things held me back. One was the fear of things going wrong and the other was financial. One day I sat down to my computer and went online to research cosmetic surgery and I came across Dr. Summers’ website and I am very pleased that I did. Everyone I have come in contact with has been great. I am very pleased with Dr. Summers, he has been nothing short of excellent throughout the entire process. He shows how much he cares for both you and your health from day one. Every member of his staff has been excellent as well. I felt very comfortable and confident throughout the entire process, including the day of surgery. The surgery itself went great, I experienced very little pain, most was managed with Advil instead of the prescription pain killer I was prescribed. I can not say enough how smoothly all of this has gone, I am now three months post-surgery and in a D-cup, and I now have the confidence I always feel I have lacked. For any woman who has gone through what childbirth does to your body or just wants to have breast augmentation surgery, it is more than worth it and I would highly recommend the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center.

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 had been interested in getting a breast augmentation for over 15 years but was worried about having elective surgery as well as the safety of implants. After I discovered a co-worker had implants and told me about Dr. Summers I took it as a sign. Dr. Summers and his staff were very patient and informative with all the questions and concerns I had. Never once did I feel they dismissed my concerns nor made me feel I was wasting their time with my nervousness. I determined that if I was going to undergo surgery that I would attempt laser liposuction on some stubborn areas on my abs, hips, and thighs. Dr. Summers was very professional and competent but what stood out for me was that he talked to me about diet and lifestyle changes that would be necessary to get the complete results I wanted. I was extremely pleased with the results of my augmentation and feel like the lipo gave me the kick start I needed to get me on the path to making those lifestyle changes. I can easily say I’m now in the best shape of my life! Thank you Dr. Summers!

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!

There are a number of non-invasive procedures (Thermage, Titan, Photodynamic Therapy, etc.) available that may restore your appearance without resorting to a full facelift.

Non-Surgical Skin Tightening (NSST) is a fantastic procedure that provides immediate tightening of the skin while stimulating new collagen production to further tighten skin over time. Typically, noticeable results are seen within hours to days, and dramatic changes are seen over several months after a single treatment!

The treatment is so effective that, in appropriately selected patients, it provides similar results to that of a browlift, blepharoplasty (upper or lower eyelid lift), mini-facelift or necklift.

Note: The ultimate in minimally invasive facial rejuvenation involves using our NSST protocols in combination with a Threadlift facelift. This combination of treatments has helped many individuals obtain the results of a full facelift without the costs or downtime associated with a full facelift. To learn more about the Threadlift procedure, see the Questions & Answers at the bottom of this letter.

I’m pleased to inform you that MARYLAND PLASTIC SURGERY is the only cosmetic surgery center in the country to offer a guarantee on the results you may achieve with NSST.

To the best of my knowledge, we are also the only cosmetic surgery center that can offer the FULL range of cosmetic procedures for non-invasive and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation, which means that we won’t recommend a procedure for you just because we have it available – we will recommend it for you if we feel you are a good candidate to have the procedure performed.

Best of all, we can perform many procedures with minimal or NO discomfort – this is in great contrast to most other centers. We can provide this type of experience for you because of our significant experience with non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures.

If you are interested in facial rejuvenation, please visit us for a consultation. Here’s what you can expect…

You will arrive at our center, which is more like a spa than a doctor’s office. You will be evaluated for a number of factors, including an evaluation of your skin, overall physical condition and social activities. Then, based on your desires and the results of your evaluation, one or more of the following procedures may be recommended:

  • Skin care treatments at home with prescription strength topical solutions
  • Acne elimination and control treatment and maintenance programs
  • Office based treatments (microdermabrasion, chemical peels, etc.)
  • Light based skin rejuvenation treatments (Laser, IPL, FotoFacial, etc.)
  • Infrared laser (Titan) for skin tightening
  • Radiofrequency (Thermage) treatment for skin tightening
  • CO2 laser resurfacing to remove wrinkles
  • Injection of Fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra) or Botox to reduce wrinkles
  • Minimally invasive facelift (S-lift, Threadlift)
  • Facial lipostructure (fat transfer, liposuction)
  • Lip enhancement procedures

Many of these treatments have NO DOWNTIME – you can go out to dinner the same day as the procedure!

If we recommend a non-invasive skin tightening procedure (e.g. Thermage or Titan) for you and you do not obtain significant results, you may repeat the procedure at a discount or have a credit applied to another procedure – the details of this are reviewed with each patient.

Once you have selected a treatment program, we will schedule you for the actual procedure. You will return for the treatment at a time which is convenient for you. All treatments are performed on-site, in the privacy of our medical spa or certified procedure/operating rooms.
