This content was provided by Dr. Rad "In Washington, DC patients seek subtle, refined and nuanced results to portray themselves to best advantage. My patient's seek to be an improved version of themselves, not to be extremely altered. A perfect surgical result sparks in observers the sub-conscious reaction "this person looks much better but I'm not sure why." I endeavor to achieve this goal for each patient.
My consultative time is unhurried, so that you have a clear understanding and expectation. My surgical results are impeccable: patients enjoy long-lasting improvements with minimal, hidden scars and the least down time possible. My care is exceptional: my staff and I provide step-by-step guidance for optimal healing and a smooth recovery. I carefully plan my unique approach for each patient. The artistry of my work is to restore a rested, natural appearance rather than to smooth every wrinkle or change one's identity. Surgery is not a small undertaking, and you'll receive support and care that is unparalleled."
