The highly-trained staff at the Bitar Cosmetic Surgery Institute is committed to providing patients with an exceptional experience from start to finish. They provide in-depth consultations to discuss the suitability of any procedure as well as the risks, benefits and alternatives, and take time to answer all questions patients might have.
Patient safety is always paramount. A large number of procedures are done at INOVA Fairfax Hospital or the INOVA Woodburn and Novant UVA Haymarket Surgery Centers. Other procedures are done in the Bitar Cosmetic Institute’s state-of-the-art office under local anesthesia. “We have a passion for patient safety,” said Dr. Lickstein, who is a member of the patient safety committee of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. “Everything we do assures a safe and successful surgery for our patients.”
The Bitar Cosmetic Surgery Institute has been widely recognized for their excellence. “The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery put their trust in us to run a fellowship training program for upcoming plastic surgeons,” said Dr. Bitar. “We are the only practice in the D.C. area and one of 26 in the United States to have earned this distinguished endorsement.”
