Plastic Surgery Specialists, with 4 locations in Eastern Maryland, is the biggest plastic surgery practice in the state. The board-certified plastic surgeons at the practice explain that being bigger actually allows them to offer better patient care.

The size of a plastic surgery practice may make a big difference in patients' choice of surgeon, according to one group of doctors offering plastic surgery in Maryland. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Plastic Surgery Specialists (, the state's largest plastic surgery practice, say that they are seeing a trend toward a "bigger is better" philosophy among women and men considering cosmetic surgery practices.

"Patients prioritize accessibility and comprehensive care a lot more now than they used to, and in many cases a multiple-surgeon practice like ours offers the level of care they expect," explains Dr. D. Paul Buhrer. "Even though we're a larger practice, we strive to create the individual attention patients would receive from a single-surgeon office."

Nowadays, when women and men are considering a Maryland face lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, or other procedure, they are looking for a practice that's close to home. With 4 office locations in Maryland, Plastic Surgery Specialists offers convenience along with the skill of surgeons who have advanced training.

"The convenience issue can easily translate into a health benefit as well – no one wants to be hours away from their doctor during recovery," notes Dr. Christopher J. Spittler. "Our doctors make a point of being available to address questions and concerns whenever they arise."

With 4 board-certified plastic surgeons, Plastic Surgery Specialists offers yet another benefit to its patients: peace of mind in knowing that their surgeon is highly qualified to perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

"The more popular plastic surgery becomes, the more we see doctors trained in other fields setting up shop as 'cosmetic surgeons,'" explains Dr. David H. Lowe. "Board-certified plastic surgeons have advanced training in plastic surgery techniques and have passed a rigorous review and examination process. We take surgeon qualifications and ongoing education seriously so that our patients trust they can get outstanding results."

When addressing particularly complex cases or performing multiple procedures for the same patient, the doctors at Plastic Surgery Specialists often will collaborate together. While each surgeon is well-versed in a range of plastic and cosmetic procedures, this sharing of knowledge can provide remarkably better outcomes for patients.

"In many respects, a larger practice like ours is much better equipped to address patients' needs on an individual level," adds Dr. Daniel Laughlin. "Our experienced surgeons and surgical support team work closely together to understand each patient's needs and plan for satisfying results. I'm excited that we are able to bring such a high level of service to men and women throughout Eastern Maryland."

The plastic surgeons at Plastic Surgery Specialists ( offer a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures. The largest plastic surgery practice in Maryland offers its patients the experience of four board-certified plastic surgeons: Christopher J. Spittler, M.D., D. Paul Buhrer, M.D., David H.
