TESTIMONIALS

"Dr. Bitar I am so happy with my breast implants, I would do the procedure all over again in a heartbeat.*"

 

"I am very pleased with the results of my face fat injections. I have a younger, fresher look. It is once again fun to apply makeup. I am more confident in my interactions with people and at ease within myself. The office staff is friendly, personable and warm. Dr. Bitar was always there for me when I needed him and showed his concern and care. He is a skilled cosmetic surgeon and I certainly recommend him."

 

"Previous surgeons performed plastic surgery on my nose and I was dissatisfied with the results, so I searched for other Northern Virginia cosmetic surgeons and came to see Dr. Bitar. I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Bitar and it was very successful. I am very pleased with the results. I am more confident and feel more beautiful. The surgery has increased my confidence and has psychologically made me a happier person. The entire staff is very helpful and professional at all times. Dr. Bitar explained the entire procedure thoroughly. He is experienced and a true professional."

 

"I came to see Dr. Bitar for my neck 'wattle.' I had the neck lift procedure done about two months ago and most of the swelling is gone and my neck looks 95% better. I feel more self-confident about the way I look – no more 'old lady' neck. My husband, who didn't think I really needed the surgery, has commented on how much better I look. Dr. Bitar and his staff are very friendly and willing to answer any and all questions pre-operatively and post-operatively."

 

"I came to see Dr. Bitar because I had a 'tire tube' from having three children and putting on extra weight for 12 years. I had a tummy tuck and breast lifts with augmentation. The results were more that I could have imagined. My stomach has never been so flat. Having been overweight I decided that I wanted a healthier lifestyle. I lost weight, started working out but still couldn't lose the roll around my middle. Having had the surgery my self esteem has risen, and I no longer hide behind baggy clothes. I feel more confident, more outgoing and have more energy. Dr. Bitar and his staff couldn't be more wonderful. He always has time to go over the details and I never felt rushed. Dr. Bitar put me at ease the moment I met him with his wonderful bedside manner."

 

"I came to see Dr. Bitar for an Abdominoplasty. I am very pleased with the results. I went down 2 pant sizes, my abdomen is flat and he was able to remove many of my stretch marks. At 38, I look better than I have in years. Clothes fit better and I am able to wear a two-piece bathing suit again for the first time since my pregnancy – 14 years ago! Dr. Bitar took a lot of time to explain everything and answered all my questions. He was available in the office or by phone whenever I needed him. His staff is wonderful"
