Plastic Surgery at Sibley

Sibley’s Plastic Surgery Division is very active, providing both aesthetic (cosmetic) and reconstructive surgery in multiple operating rooms every day.

We have a highly trained group of private practice plastic surgeons whose patients love coming to Sibley for their plastic surgery. They return because of the privacy and professionalism of the staff and nurses and because of the complete plastic surgery program.

Dedicated Plastic Surgery Unit

Working with the Sibley staff and nurses, our plastic surgeons have developed a unique program unmatched in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. The program at Sibley offers patients the option of either outpatient or inpatient aesthetic or reconstructive surgery with a dedicated plastic surgery team. Patients can either have surgery in the plastic surgery unit in the main operating room, or in our new Ambulatory Surgery Center. We have state-of-the-art technology and equipment to provide the best surgical outcomes, as well as an extremely safe approach to anesthesia and patient monitoring by Sibley’s board-certified anesthesiologists.

When patients arrive, they are seen in the preoperative area by specially trained nurses. After meeting the surgeon and anesthesiologist, patients are escorted to the operating room and then to the recovery room, all staffed by nurses and physicians assistants qualified and experienced in caring for plastic surgery patients.

Commonly Performed Procedures

No other area hospital offers as complete a plastic surgery program as Sibley. Commonly performed procedures include face and neck lift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, otoplasty and facial resurfacing. We also specialize in all forms of breast surgery, including breast augmentation, reduction and lift and breast reconstruction. Many of our breast reconstruction patients are cared for in coordination with physicians affiliated with Sibley’s Sullivan Center for Breast Health.

Body-contouring procedures have increased dramatically over the last decade. These may require liposuction alone, using the latest technology and advances in liposuction, or may involve more extensive body-contouring procedures. Many body-contouring patients are either postbariatric surgery or weight loss or have experienced postpartum changes.

For my breast cancer reconstruction patients and others as well, Sibley Memorial Hospital allows me to work hand-in-hand with the finest physicians, nurses and support staff.
