Board-Certified: American Board of Plastic SurgeryMedical School: University of Maryland, Baltimore, MDResidency: General Surgery, Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, MDFellowship-Trained: Plastic Surgery, Johns Hopkins Hospital, University of Maryland HospitalMember: American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons "I've always had good manual dexterity and I'm a perfectionist, so cosmetic facial surgery is a perfect fit. My philosophy is to achieve a natural result with every surgery and procedure – I believe less can be more. I also think the goal of cosmetic surgery is to help patients look like younger, more attractive versions of themselves. "This is a very creative field that blends art and science. I love the fact that it is primarily elective – patients come to me not because they have to but because they want to make a positive change. It's very rewarding to see the gratitude in someone's eyes when you've been able to fulfill their expectations and improve their self-image." Few other medical practices incorporate artistic elements into their work. Dr. Birely brings a unique sense of artistry to plastic surgery. He has an exceptional eye for beauty, proportion and detail. He also brings great passion and integrity to his work. His patients appreciate his honesty and his ability to make them look like younger, more attractive versions of themselves.

I am a repeat client of Cheryl Sugar who has proven herself to be a top notch PA and talented injector. She has an artistic eye and gentle touch, always resulting in very natural but visible improvements. I trust her implicitly. The office environment is friendly and inviting, and Tracy, the surgical coordinator is delightful and could not be more patient or helpful. I recommend Dr. Birely's practice without qualification. Could not be more pleased.

I had a small tummy tuck. Everything was explained step by step except for 2 instances: 1. To bring the pre-ordered pain killers with me to the surgery so I can have post-op, because they send you home relatively quickly, they can only give you so much at the outpatient surgi-center and 2. How much pain you can actually be in and how inactive/off your feet you should be for several weeks.
