Best of Bethesda 2013 – The Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington


Best Cosmetic Surgeon

The Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington

How skilled are the doctors at The Plastic Surgery Institute of Washington?

“It’s because of those doctors that I’m wearing a bathing suit right now,” says Nadine Flaharty of Olney, speaking by cellphone during a trip to the British Virgin Islands.

Flaharty started looking for a plastic surgeon after a 170-pound weight loss left her with excess skin. A certified nurse-midwife who focuses on gynecology, she asked her patients—including some breast cancer survivors who had breast reconstructions after double mastectomies—who did their procedures.

“Anytime I saw a really expert job, it was done by a doctor in that practice,” says Flaharty, who received an abdominoplasty and neck lift from Dr. Douglas Forman. Flaharty says he, Dr. Kathy Huang, Dr. Roger Friedman and the office staff have been “nothing but compassionate and professional.”

The practice, currently based in North Bethesda, has been operating in the Washington area for 30 years.
