Specializing in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Adam N. Summers is a board-certified plastic surgeon who, in 1996, began developing a minimally invasive facelift technique to lift the brows, cheeks, jowls and upper neck without removing any skin. Now, as a clinical assistant professor of plastic surgery, he has performed the “SMART Facelift” on more than 1,000 patients. “Patients enjoy the natural-looking results obtained with this minimally invasive procedure,” says Dr. Summers, who refined the technique to achieve reliable results without requiring patients to be asleep for the procedure. As a perfectionist and artist, he continually refines and customizes the “One-Hour SMART Facelift.”

About My Practice

We look at lifestyle, habits and diet, in addition to a host of other considerations. The objective is to try to get to know our patients and their goals so

We can provide them with proper recommendations.

We can provide them with proper recommendations.

Upon first entering my facility, patients are put at ease by a lighted waterfall, accents of granite and wood, and relaxing, soothing music. In my experience, people feel beautiful when they are surrounded by beauty. And our combined medical spa, laser center and cosmetic surgery center provides comprehensive aesthetic care all under one roof.

How is your practice influenced by the graphic arts?

I have been honored to win awards and have my artwork on display at the national library of medicine. These experiences have provided me with a unique creative foundation and perspective. Because the field of plastic surgery is grounded in both art and science, I believe my background is instrumental in helping my cosmetic surgery patients obtain consistently natural results.

A Minute With

  1. What i can’t live without

    In my practice, the one thing I cannot live without is my dedicated staff, who help coordinate and provide exceptional patient care

  2. Career-defining procedure

    The one-hour SMART Facelift—when word got out that it required no narcotics for pain and resulted in very little bruising ,swelling and little to no downtime, we started seeing patients from around the world

  3. What i love most about my profession

    Listening to patients express their hopes and desires for cosmetic changes and then seeing the excited look in their eyes when I help them quickly achieve their dreams

  4. Most memorable patient reaction

    During the “unveiling” after surgery, both my patient, her mother and my staff started crying tears of joy at seeing the early post-operative results

  5. My greatest achievements

    My two wonderful children

  6. The procedure i perform most often

    The SMART Facelift—I have achieved successful results in patients ranging from 30 to more than 70 years old. Our typical patient is around 50 years old, has reasonable skin tone and notices that their cheeks and jowls are beginning to sag

  7. My motto

    I help my patients achieve long-lasting results

  1. Who is your SMART Facelift patient?
    What our experts say:

    The procedure has achieved successful results in patients ranging from 30 to over 70 years old. The typical patient is around 50 years old, has reasonable skin tone, and notices that their cheeks and jowls are beginning to sag.

  2. Why is your SMART Facelift a popular option?
    What our experts say:

    Typically, with my SMART Facelift procedure, there is very little bruising or swelling, so patients usually have almost no downtime. Because the procedure repositions the sagging cheeks and jowls without pulling on the skin, patients never appear 'pulled.'

  3. Are there other benefits to the SMART Facelift?
    What our experts say:

    Because the SMART Facelift is completed in less than an hour under local anesthesia, patients do not require narcotics for pain management, and they can drive immediately afterward.

  4. How long will results last [from SMART Facelift]?
    What our experts say:

    I have patients over 10 years out from their surgery that have maintained elevation of their cheeks. However, an additional benefit of the smart facelift is that, years later, I can easily retighten the lift without redoing the entire procedure.

"I have always had a "spare tire" around my stomach. My senior year in high school a student was pregnant. There was a rumor that it was me because of my “pouch.” After I got married, my husband would put his arm around me at night and pinch my "pouch". He didn't mind my pouch but I HATED it. After two children, it only got worse. Finally, I had a consult with Dr. Summers. I was the perfect candidate! Not only did he take away the spare tire, a little lipo helped with my muffin top. I am more confident and finally able to wear cute little dresses. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. Dr. Summers and his staff were fantastic before, during and after my surgery. Thank you Dr. Summers, Tobias and all the wonderful ladies in the office."
