For something that can be as life-impacting as plastic surgery, you want the complete package: an experienced, highly skilled and caring  plastic surgeon, and a facility that conforms to the rigorous standards of the JCAHO or the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, two highly regarded accrediting bodies for outpatient surgical facilities.

The fact is, no reputable plastic surgeon can guarantee you’ll end up with the look you want. Here are some things you can do to help you in your search for a safe, quality outcome.

Dr. William Kanter and Dr. Mitchel Kanter completed their training in Plastic Surgery at the Harvard Medical School and both have been recognized as among “America’s Top Plastic Surgeons” by the Consumer Research Council of America.  They were voted the Best of Howard Award for Plastic Surgery for 2 years in a row by members of the community.  The awards were based on a survey of over 15,000 votes by Howard Magazine, a Baltimore Sun publication.  The awards were for 2016 and 2017, with honorable mention in 2018, and then were awarded the top spot again in 2019, 2022 and 2023!

Your Concerns are Our Concerns

Many people come to us with the same questions and concerns. What will the pain be like? When can I return to my regular activities? What am I going to look like? Will I look natural?

Obviously, everyone is unique and individual experiences will vary.

But here is what we can say.

We want you to be happy with your results. So, we take whatever time is needed to try to make sure we maximize your result. As a practice philosophy, our goal is a natural look. We want you to look like you, only better, fresher. We want your friends to say “Did you lose weight?”, “Were you on vacation?”, “You look rested.”

For most procedures, the pain will not be severe and we make sure you receive proper pain medication. Most often, our patients start to resume normal activities in about two weeks although each person’s experience may vary. With newer, less invasive procedures, downtime is usually minimal.

We share a common goal with every person we take care of. We want you to be satisfied with the outcome. So you can be sure we will listen to your concerns and work with you toward that objective
