Plastic Surgery Vienna, VirginiaPatients who are considering undergoing a plastic surgery procedure should invest time and effort to choose the right surgeon for their needs. A dedicated surgeon will closely evaluate the patient’s anatomical condition and their personal aesthetic goals to determine candidacy for an appropriate surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedure.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons (ABPS) Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provide state of the art cosmetic procedures for the breast, body, and face. Patients in Richmond, Virginia, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive cutting edge treatments from Drs. Sundin.


Selecting the Surgeon

The initial consultation appointment with the surgeon provides an opportunity to the patient to make an objective assessment and decide whether to choose the surgeon for the specific cosmetic procedure they need. Some patients may like to compare between two or more surgeons in order to make the best decision for their plastic surgery procedure. Some of the key attributes to look for in a surgeon may include:


Education and Training

The patient should review the academic background, specific training in plastic surgery procedures, and whether the surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Both Drs. Sundin have advanced qualifications in medicine and surgery, including specialized training and multiple fellowships in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Both are ABPS board certified plastic surgeons, with comprehensive qualifications from pre-eminent institutions. Dr. Burton Sundin graduated from Duke University, while Dr. Reps Sundin completed his degrees at Georgetown University and University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine.


Personalized Approach  

Any plastic surgery procedure is a personal journey for a patient. They will require professional support and guidance along the way from the surgeon as well as the team members at the practice. The surgeon should take the time to learn about the patient’s innate aesthetic needs and goals, and engage closely with them at every step from the first consultation to the surgery and post-operative recovery.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery provides an opportunity for personalized care and attention to every patient, irrespective of the type of procedure they may need. The practice is led by two plastic surgeons, which creates enough scope for every patient to have access to the surgeon at any stage of the procedure.


Minimizing Surgery, Maximizing Results

The central goal of a committed plastic surgeon should be to achieve optimal cosmetic outcomes with a minimalist approach to plastic surgery. The surgeons at the Virginia Institute will tailor the procedure to suit the specific needs of a patient. This enables them to make the surgery less invasive and more targeted for best results. Risks, discomfort, and downtime can be reduced with this approach.

Some patients may benefit from a non-surgical procedure in conjunction with plastic surgery. This is easily possible at the practice because it has a dedicated body contouring and laser center for non-surgical procedures. Drs. Sundin receive patients from Richmond, Virginia, and other neighborhoods and cities in this region of the state for various plastic surgery and non-invasive procedures.
