Dr. Birely's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Birely "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."

Dr. Birely did an excellent job on my ear lobe repair. I was incredibly nervous to get it done but the entire staff was comforting. He talked me through the entire procedure and it was painless! Highly recommend.
