Testimonials

Laser sclerotherapy

Suzy L.

In the past I have endured injection sclerotherapy the old fashioned way, with injections. Recently I underwent laser sclerotherapy by Dr. Summers using the laser and without a doubt it is a much less painful treatment. The results were great with little post care necessary and no down-time. I would highly recommend this procedure! - Suzy L

Excellent experience

Andrea M.

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! - Andrea M

The best ALL AROUND!

Lailani R.

Because of a terrible car crash in 1995, I have been unable to breathe correctly and I have not looked like myself for a long time. My breathing became unbearable and then I was so lucky to have found Dr. Summers. My rhinoplasty surgery has changed me so much. My breathing is so much better now and I finally have a bridge on my nose again. I used to think my lungs were not working properly. It is so amazing how much better I can breathe now. I am very happy about my nose, too. I have felt very ugly inside but never let it get me down or change me but now it feels good to look like my old self again. It's a blessing that I met Dr. Summers and I am so very grateful that I was so lucky to have him as my surgeon. I found out that all the research I did on Dr. Summers is better than I expected...I found that he was the best around, but in my eyes', he is the best ALL AROUND! Thank you! You have changed my life... - Lailani R

K. C.

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.

Maryland Plastic Surgery Center

B. W.

Due to an accident on the highway, I arrived 45 minutes late for my appointment. However, both Dr. Summers and Rossie, his physician assistant, went out of their way to make sure I was able to still receive my treatment. The staff at Maryland Plastic Surgery Center display both a professional and courteous attitude, and are always willing to share their treatment or procedure experiences. They are all very warm and friendly. Dr. Summers took all the time in the world with me, with lots of questions and concerns. Dr. Summers is the best doctor around!

Could not ask for a better Doctor!

H. Murray

I chose Dr. Summers from a list of 4 other doctors that I went to. He sat and took time to listen to my concerns and he was not in a rush to do anything to me. He spent time in person and emails to answer my questions. I did not feel rushed at all. Dr. Summers performed laser lipo as well as fixed my belly button from a previous procedure. Love the end result. Feel much better about my appearance and look much, much better than before. Followed his instructions for after care and I could not be happier. Highly recommend him. He has also been available for questions after when I had them. Could not ask for a better Dr. Very happy that I chose him for this procedure. - H.Murray (Baltimore, MD)

Facial improvement

Kathy P.

I am very pleased with Dr. Summers and my procedures! After interviewing 3 other surgeons, I chose Dr. Summers for my rhinoplasty because of the care and concern he took with my desires for facial improvement! I also chose him because he seemed extremely knowledgeable and precise, comparable to the facial specialist I also interviewed. Having a revision surgery was scary for me, but I put my faith and trust in him. Dr. Summers has excellent "bedside manner", made me feel comfortable from the moment we met, and proved to me that he truly cares about his patients. Thank you Dr. Summers, Suzette and everyone who helped make my surgery experience the best it could be! - Kathy P

About Me

Your Prescription for Healthy Skin™

Developed by Dr. Summers, PureRx® skin-care products provide patients with a dose of antioxidants and prescription-strength ingredients based on the latest scientific studies. Using advanced liposomal technology, PureRx® products are powerful enough to penetrate deep into the skin for optimal results and gentle enough not to irritate or dry out the skin. PureRx® is an ideal skin-care regimen for those looking to improve their skin’s tone and texture. 

A SMART approach to lifting the face

“Typically, with my SMART Facelift there is very little bruising or swelling, so patients usually have almost no downtime. If you have the procedure on Thursday, you can be back to work the following Monday,” says Dr. Summers, who modifies the procedure for each patient, depending on their individual needs. The procedure has achieved successful results in hundreds of patients ranging from 30 to over 70 years old, in men and women of all ethnicities. Although no procedure can stop the aging process, Dr. Summers reports that he can easily go back through the same incisions made during the SMART Facelift procedure, lifting the cheeks and jowls again without redoing the entire surgery.

The One-Hour SMART Facelift

Recognizing that aging involves more than just sagging skin, Dr. Summers developed the SMART Facelift to lift the brows, cheeks, jowls and upper neck without removing skin. Patients can experience maximum aesthetic results minimally invasively, avoiding a pulled look, says Dr. Summers, who refined the technique to achieve reliable results in less than an hour with only local anesthesia and a single, one-inch incision hidden above the ear. Such was the case for this 53-year-old, who had a SMART Facelift and liposuction under the chin.

The SMART Facelift ™: A Lift In One Hour

Nearly 10 years ago, Dr. Summers published an article describing how the cheeks and jowls fall over time and that facial aging involves more than sagging skin. Since then, he developed the SMART FACELIFT™ to lift the brows, cheeks, jowls and upper neck, all without removing skin. “Patients can experience MAXIMUM AESTHETIC RESULTS with a MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURE, while avoiding a pulled look.” He refined the technique to achieve reliable results in less than an hour with only local anesthesia and a single, one-inch incision hidden above the ear, as seen in this 53-year-old patient, who underwent a MOST Facelift™ and liposuction under the chin. As a unique benefit, Dr. Summers can lift the cheeks and jowls again without redoing the entire procedure as the signs of aging return. “Typically, there is very little bruising or swelling, so patients usually have ALMOST NO DOWNTIME. If you have the procedure on Thursday, you can be back to work the following Monday.” The procedure has achieved successful results in hundreds of patients ranging from 30 to 70 years old, in men and women of all ethnicities. Dr. Summers states that, “like a custom work of art, I modify the procedure for each patient, depending on his or her individual needs.”
